Incus Data has been training programmers since 1988, and has had some form of SETA accreditation since 2002.
We focus exclusively on programmer training. This focus enables us to concentrate our resources: considerable time and money is spent on the research needed to ensure that our course material is up-to-date and in line with international trends and standards.
The range of courses we offer has expanded over time and now includes C/C++, Java technologies, object orientation, .NET and a variety of web development technologies. The course list is updated on a regular basis to ensure alignment with developments in technology.
We have three well-equipped lecture rooms in Centurion, Pretoria, but we also provide in-house training anywhere in the country. Courses can be customised to meet the requirements of the client.
In addition to training, Incus Data provides consulting services with regard to software and web development, code auditing, coding standards, documentation development and project management.
These different areas complement one another: research for courses results in improved development skills, and the development of real world software in turn guards against the danger of courses becoming too academic in nature.
Renier van Wyk founded Incus Data as a closed corporation in 1988. Incus Data converted to a private company in 1995 with an additional director, Jacqui Coosner. In 2003 Lewis Coosner became the third director.
The founder member, Renier van Wyk, is still the managing director today. His dedication is reflected in the rest of the Incus Data team: a team committed to excellent service and superior training.
The name Incus is actually a Latin word which means anvil.
The vision of a craftsman plying his trade on an anvil to create tools with both practical uses and aesthetic value inspired us.
Incus is also the name of one of the three small bones inside the middle ear, which act to transmit sound. Clear and effective communication is essential for the transfer of knowledge during training.
Our anvil man reminds us that training requires skill, and must be aimed at delivering practical knowledge.
