Welcome to Astius Academy™ - Intelligent training for Professionals™
A great wave of new technologies is about to break onto our shore – Internet of Things, 3D Printing, Virtual Reality, Robotics, Driverless Cars, Blockchain – to name but a few! So perhaps it comes as no surprise to hear some people call this the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’.
Through talking to many decision makers in the SME and public sectors, we know that a major obstacle to adoption of these new technologies is an acute shortage of skills. From technicians through to C-Level executives, there is a scarcity of people at all levels which have any real grasp of what these technologies mean for the future of their organisations.
Always at the frontier of change, Astius has played a pioneering role in raising awareness of new technologies among the SME community. We have achieved this through our technical consultancy services and by organising showcase events for local companies. This means we are uniquely placed to design and deliver a range of affordable, high-quality training courses to you, our customer.
Who we train
Our courses are open to everyone who wants to discover the power of these new technologies:
Individuals: freelancers, career changers, dedicated technologists. Whoever you may be, breathe new life into your CV and gain a professional edge to your career.
Organisations: empower your people with new skills, in order to deliver greater operational savings, create new revenue streams and better serve your customers.
According to the respected technology market research company Machina Research, 81% of US companies with revenues >$10m will have deployed IoT solutions by 2018.
We all would like the UK to remain a competitive economy and remain an attractive place for inward investment. But these figures show that PLCs, SMEs and the public sector have a lot of catching up to do!
Widespread uptake of new technologies such as IoT can only happen if there is substantial investment in developing the skills of your workforce. This means both raising awareness of the potential of new technologies and empowering your employees to harness them for the benefit of your organisation and their own individual careers.
So now is the time for SMEs and the public sector to invest in high quality training. We maximise your ROI through our philosophy of 'high quality training and an affordable price'.
Don't get left behind! Remarkable opportunities exist for forward-thinking, agile organisations. Many businesses around the world can testify to the truth of this. You could perform even better but first you need to invest in developing a skilled workforce that can deliver on the promise of new technology
What we deliver
So what can you expect from our training courses? You want a great learning experience and value for money. That's what we promise to deliver!
