I'm Barry Myburgh - your lecturer for this course

After graduating from Wits with a B.Sc. Eng. (Elec) degree, it did not take long for me to start working in the Computer Industry. Some years later I graduated from UNISA with a Master in Business Leadership (MBL) degree. (UNISA’s equivalent of an MBA.) 

Throughout my career I have delighted in sharing with others things that I have managed to understand and master. This naturally led to me getting involved with training and education from my earliest days in the Industry.
