One of the greatest challenges of organizations that were setup in the 90's was educating the industry. Anything new undergoes critical analysis and trial before its acceptance in the market;Quint Academy underwent the same and emerged triumphant. Headquartered in Netherlands in 1992, Quint started its first venture on training and consulting in Bangalore in 1999. Today, the academy is considered to be the 'Thought Leader' and 'Practice Leader' in the training segment of the corporazzte market. Though they made it look easy, their journey is marked by patience and perseverance. "When we started working in India in 1999, the knowledge level on ITIL and ITSM was quite low. Most organizations were focused on the CMMi guidelines and IT Service Management was not a priority" says Sunil Mehta, Managing Director - India, Middle East & Central Africa,
Quint Wellington Redwood. He explains that the company began by focusing on building awareness within the IT organizations in the initial years. Once the evangelist phase was over, the company received an over whelming response from the Indian IT industry.

The company also provides courses such as Lean IT, IT Governance – COBIT®, Agile Development DevOps, Change Management and Project Management. The ITIL training and certification provided by Quint are accepted as one of the best in the corporate and are most effective in terms of the implementation of IT practices of the resources.

The company claims to have a course structure of both theoretical and practical components that lays emphasis
