Graduating from school is only the first step. Technical proficiency has always been the bane of the Philippine educational system. According to statistics, 50% of Information Technology (IT) graduates have no programming skills and that is very alarming.

In this time of fast changing dynamics in technology and the demand for technically proficient professionals, there is an alarming gap between “certifications” and technical proficiency.

Ground Gurus is a startup in itself but is aiming to shrink the technical proficiency gap in the country. This is done by a platform that connects subject matter experts to learners.

Ground Gurus focuses on the technical training aspect of IT and Computer Science graduates and students.  It is widely known that there are many online tutorials but Ground Gurus have taken that one step further by providing face-to-face training, seminars, and developmental activities that will enhance technical proficiency in the IT field.
