2KO International was born in 1998 by a partnership between Barry Smith and Gary Williams. Barry was previously Managing Director of Training Connection in Johannesburg, now Torque-IT. Barry had a partnership with another Gary (Gary Chalmers) who started Training connection from a garage and had grown it to the largest Microsoft technical training centre in the Southern hemisphere within three years.
joined forces with Inspecs in the UK. Inspecs owned a building in
London and have subsequently moved to Farleigh where they bought
Farleigh Castle, where 2KO based their UK operation. 2KO was
appointed a Microsoft Partner in 1999, and has continued the close
relationship with Microsoft ever since. 2KO expanded its training
through the early 2000's into Cisco and other non-Microsoft programs
too. In 2007, 2KO International was granted ISETT SETA approval and
subsequently has received MICT approval. This means companies in
South Africa may claim back most of the course fees paid out on
courses at our centres
2KO International offers authorised, industry-relevant training with a focus on practical delivery. Our training is about equipping people with real skills, not just exam passes, and yet we maintain one of the highest pass rates anywhere. 2KO has a family feel about it, and our concern stretches to way beyond the course by for example allowing a job finding service.
Our training takes place mostly in Cape Town, at our Bo-kaap centre, which is close to the city centre. Our students are looked after in luxury and style and nothing is too much trouble for our dedicated team. Our training packages to Cape Town are especially popular due to the excellent study environment away from home and office distractions. We even have special offers for your partner to enjoy a holiday while you study. We provide full time, as well as distance learning courses.
2KO offers training not only on Microsoft but on Cisco, Linux, CompTIA, Oracle and also many business courses such as Six Sigma, Project Management and Crystal Reports. Leadership Courses
In addition to IT Courses, 2KO Africa conducts a variety of training programmes for large corporate companies, both local and international, for company managers and leaders. These courses can be conducted at 2KO flagship centre in BoKaap, Cape Town or onsite anywhere in the country or outside of our borders.
