About Us

We are a Yorkshire based company offering trainer-led, bespoke and online I.T. training courses throughout the U.K. and online.  We also support colleges and universities with Train The Trainer courses and 'at scale' certification services.

IT Masterclasses was founded by Chris Rhodes and Andrew Bettany.  Sadly Chris passed away in June 2019 and Andrew continues to spearhead the company.

We like to provide training with a difference.

We aim to offer an individual, personal service for every attendee on all of our courses.  Our trainers can help provide advice and guidance when choosing which course to study and we can even offer exam tips if you are currently working towards certification.

Our short courses are highly-focused on key topics with specific outcomes.  The courses allow learners to fit training in around their busy lives, particularly with the Online / At Home training courses.

If you need help and guidance then please get in-touch and we can help you choose the most suitable courses for you and your staff.
