About Eident

Training and Development Experts based in Scotland

Eident, with city centre locations in Glasgow and Edinburgh, provide a wide range of computer training and development services to companies across the whole of Scotland.  Eident was originally established in the summer of 2000, becoming Etopia Solutions Ltd, trading as Etopia Training, in 2002 with reorganisation subsequently seeing all the in-house technical and training staff re-adopting the original Eident branding, providing a more focused and bespoke level of consultancy to our customers across the private and public sectors.  Eident’s owners have since sold the Etopia domain and both are now entirely separate organisations under different ownership.
