About 2KO Africa

History of 2KO


2KO International was formed 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), and together they started Training Connection from a garage. Training Connection, with it's primary centre in Rivonia, grew to be the largest Microsoft technical training centre in the Southern hemisphere within three years of being established.


2KO International joined forces with Inspecs in Bath, United Kingdom. Inspecs owns a building in London and a castle in Bath, called 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. It's largest contract was with the MOD of the UK, where we performed Resettlement Training for 10+ years. In 2007, 2KO International was granted ISETT SETA approval and subsequently has received MICT and MER SETA accreditation. This means companies in South Africa may claim back most of the course fees paid out on courses at our centres. 2KO delivers cutting-edge IT products in the consulting and business services space, as well as offering top-rated training for various IT vendors. Our internationally recognised courses can be offered either as hands-on full time classes, or as online learning..

In 2015, 2KO International expanded into Africa and rebranded as 2KO Africa, with a focus on IT Services and Support. By providing a customized IT solution for a business in both South Africa and Africa, 2KO Africa believes that they can make a real impact on the Information Technology sector.
