Training & Development
IT’s Personal at Viglen because the best ideas and results come from inspiring excellence and encouraging free-thinking. Great Minds Think Viglen, and at Viglen we develop Great Minds! With a mixture of formal courses, internal & external seminars and workshops and on-the-job training, we aim not only to develop individuals in their current role but also to actively support them in their career progression within Viglen.
In such a fast moving industry as IT we need to ensure that our technical and sales staff have up-to-date knowledge, that’s why we actively support and reward employees for obtaining such qualifications as MCP, MCSE, MSP and CNE.
Career paths at Viglen do not always rise vertically. The traditional career path is no longer seen as the only way to progress. The paths available to Viglen employees are determined by individuals, depending on their skills, knowledge and interests. No move is impossible, no department impenetrable and no level unattainable.
Progression is a reality at Viglen.
