About us
Malcolm Kayser Computer Training (MKCT) provides professional training courses designed for the computer user and computer technician to meet the needs of companies of all sizes.  Originally called MKCT Ltd., it was formed in 1997 capitalising then on 27 years technical experience in Computer Operations, Systems Development and IT Training gained on a variety of platforms.

The company presents Programming and Design methods courses, Open Systems (UNIX and Linux) courses, IBM mainframe courses, and HTML.  We are not a Microsoft training provider.  All courses are supported by comprehensive course notes or, if preferred, we will deliver courses using your own courseware.

Clients benefit from the versatility and excellent communication skills of its top class team of trainers who have delivered training to both small and large classes of delegates.

The company has built a strong reputation for training based on quality of service and customer care.

Where do the courses take place?
We deliver instructor-led training for IT training companies at their training centres, and on-site training to private companies or individuals.  We provide instructors, courses and courseware for other IT training companies.

Please feel free to contact us and discuss your needs.

When do the courses take place?
We pride ourselves on consistency and competency in presentation.  We arrange dates to suit you and your delegates and each course is arranged according to your timetable.

Websites designed and built
We can also design and create for you a website to your specification (or provide the necessary training to help you develop your own site).  Visit our website.
