2KO International Africa was started
in 1998 in a partnership between Barry Smith and Gary Williams.
Barry Smith was previously Managing Director of Training Connection
in Johannesburg, now Torque-IT. Barry Smith had a partnership with
another Gary, Gary Chalmers, who started Training connection from a
garage and grew it to the largest Microsoft technical training
centre in the Southern hemisphere within three years.
2KO International Africa joined forces with Inspecs in the UK. 2KO International was appointed a Microsoft Partner in 1999, and has continued the close relationship with Microsoft ever since. 2KO International expanded its training through the early 2000's into Cisco and other non-Microsoft programs too. In 2007, the company was granted ISETT SETA approval. This means companies in South Africa can claim back most of the course fees paid out on courses at our centres.
Trading Name: 2KO Africa trades under the name 2KO International, but the official company name is Coalition Trading 616.
Business Leadership Training
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.
