It’s extremely convenient.

Our courses are taught on-site, off-site in the community, or on IPFW’s campus.  Training schedules are developed to meet the needs of the corporate client, aiming to minimize impact to their operation and production goals. But customization is more than just in scheduling and location.  We can customize the content, textbooks, or instructors to provide detailed programs that meet specific needs.

And it’s so easy to get started.

Review our catalog of public courses to see if any of these courses begin to address your needs.  Then, contact us to discover how the curriculum and course can be customized to your specific environment.  Or, just give us a call and we’ll research the best option to meet your needs.  Consultations are free.
