The mainframe standard
MTP exams and qualifications were designed and developed by specialists working with the British Computer Society, at the request of some of the world’s biggest mainframe users who wanted a structured path for employees. Guide Share Europe is now responsible for the governance of MTP: our well-established series of qualifications continues to grow in the UK and around the world, with many organizations sponsoring their personnel through the training.
“An excellent way for corporates to train their staff and keep them up to date: GSE membership gives corporate members free places. It’s three days of training across a wide range of topics, including what’s new in software, operating systems and hardware.”
The GSE UK annual conference provides extensive opportunities for technical training, across multiple streams, disciplines and technologies. Member organizations receive five free places.
