Sign up for the JBI Training newsletter to stay updated with world-class technology training opportunities, including Analytics, AI, ML, DevOps, Web, Backend and Security. Our Power BI Training Course is especially popular.  Gain new skills, useful tips, and validate your expertise with an industry-leading organisation, all tailored to your schedule and learning preferences.



Our Software Engineering Excellence training course combines three popular courses; Effective Code Reviews, Non Fiunctional Requirements and Continuous Integration. Client feedback shows that delegates on our courses will best engage when they can relate course topics to their own day-to-day practices and requirements. We therefore run this course as a consultative, workshop-style event, in which discussion of topics such as what are Code Reviews, what are their benefits to your company and how can you adopt and apply them takes place in relation to the delegates' own applications and scenarios.
