Employee Training and Workforce Development

Customized Training for Twin Cities Businesses

The IPD offers companies around St. Paul and Minneapolis a large range of customized training courses to offer your employees for an in-person workshop style learning experience. If you are not near the area, IPD can provide most courses virtually for a long-distant interactive learning experience.

IPD specializes in designing custom training courses developed specifically to provide tailored training solutions to the business problems you are trying to solve – including employee retention through professional development.

Employee training increases the skill of your workforce and also improves the communication and comradery of your workplace. Coaching also helps retain your staff by encouraging job satisfaction with new techniques they can immediately engage with and apply.

Our instructors are available to come train at your facility, or teach virtually on our Zoom provided platform, or bring the team to the onsite classroom space at the IPD Training Center facility (with free parking). Our location is in the Midway area near the Minnesota State Fairgrounds.
