our company
  our methods of training
Located in the spectacular Rocky Mountains, we deliver instructor-led trainings from our solution centers in Missoula and Helena, Montana. We also deliver online, instructor led trainings that allow you to train from the comfort and convenience of your home, office or anywhere that has a high speed internet connection.

  onsite training
If you need something onsite, ikuw "has labs, will travel". We have complete mobile labs that support both PC and Macintosh environments and we can set up for a training onsite in under an hour. We have a strong network of training partners whose capabilities span nearly every possible software package that’s been created.

  your own sandbox
Additionally, we offer our students their own "sandbox" to work in the labs they utilize in class after the completion of the class for six months! This allows students to continue to work and test within a contained environment to ensure concepts and methods are learned without fear of "breaking" their own environment. For students looking for a certification path and needing a test environment, these "sandbox" labs can be made available for purchase as well, allowing for the best opportunity to pass your exams!

  other services
In addition to our solid focus on training, we provide facility and computer rentals (both PC and Mac), consulting services and employee on-boarding programs for companies.

  our direction
Inspiration, optimism and the entrepeneurial spirit run both wide and deep in this small corner of God's country. We have the best of both worlds by enjoying the natural beauty and outdoor activities of the Treasure state while reaching out to a global market through technology.

The digital age is upon us and it presents unimaginable opportunities to change the way we communicate, educate and conduct business. We look forward to partnering with your business to build your success!

our team
  hardwork/funwork
We pride ourselves on being practitioners in the topics we teach. The real world experience that we bring into the classroom allows us to not only teach the topics, but more importantly, show how to apply it in real world situations. We believe the best way of learning is by doing and we provide opportunities to get you actively involved in the activities. We expect to work hard but we also have a lot of fun in the process.
