Our clients are international governments, individual schools and school boards, inventing clubs/associations,

We offer a 2-week intensive course to train those who want to become inventing instructors.   We teach participants how to teach the process of inventing from concept to creation and then practice the teaching skills in class. Once certified by Inventors College Organization, graduates become part of our team of ICO instructors and are monitored and updated by ICO.  Training new inventing teachers  is especially valuable in emerging countries. They often want to tap into the creativity of their people who can then generate new products/services for sale on the world market. This generates greater wealth and prosperity and adds to the overall economy of the country.
