What our Customers Say

IES provided an excellent training programme and of a very high pedagogical standard. Our engineers learned a lot, and it made our young engineers think critically about various design aspects. The instructor was extremely bright, well informed and combined theory and examples from various advanced buildings. Thank you very much.

As a beginner I found the IES face-to-face training course to be a very good overview of the IESVE. I left feeling much more confident that I could use the IESVE effectively in my role.

Rachel Yehezkel

We have taken up IES Graduate Training for a number of years now. Our graduates find the training workshops tremendously useful, the trainer is excellent and engaging and the course structure and practical sessions really helped our graduates learn to operate the software effectively. We highly recommend IES Training solutions.

Hans Chao

The VE Training event was an excellent way of revisiting the different applications I practiced over my internship at IES, bridging any theoretical knowledge gaps for using the software efficiently and sensibly. The trainer was very knowledgeable and helpful. I can now take this knowledge further for my future projects at work and at University with confidence.
