We’re not ashamed to admit that we can’t do everything by ourselves. But, for everything we can’t do alone, we “got a guy.” Ok, we got a lot of guys and gals. We partner with technology vendors (like Microsoft), IT training companies (like us) in other cities, speciality technology training companies, LAR’S, VAR’S, SI’S, staffing companies, community institutions and technology institutions (like KCtne and KC Tech Council). Whatever you need to learn, we can get it for you.  MEET OUR PARTNERS
