Get Cutting-Edge Business Insights

For 50 years, Kirkwood has been a talent pipeline for in-demand jobs in Eastern Iowa. Community colleges were born to foster economic growth through skills training. This has evolved to include administering workforce programs and small business development. Today, we offer a range of services for businesses of all sizes.

To support that goal, Kirkwood Corporate Training hosts an annual Instructor Showcase, featuring subject matter experts who are transitioning in their career as trainers. Each trainer gives a 20-minute preview of their expertise area. If you are interested in learning about new talent in the training realm, hot new training topics, and - of course - popular training topics, then this is the event for you! 

Updated event information coming soon!

We’ve helped hundreds of companies with workforce training and expansion, culture changes, streamlining processes and strategic plan development. Our 30 years of experience means proven approaches custom-created to suit your needs.
