Our History

IDMANN Institute started as a series of well developed in-house training programs aimed to upskill staff at Aquada. The initial concept was documented in 2005 and was developed and refined over a 10-year period. The Institute was fully licensed to operate in 2016-2017 and opened its doors to students the following year. The Institute provides broad-based professional and technical training in support of students' personal, professional, and entrepreneurial development.   Our unique mission - and history - have shaped the way we pursue our educational and tutorial mandate today.

Our Structure

The IDMANN Institute provides post-secondary & tertiary education. We provide personal development, professional advancement, and technical entrepreneurship training primarily for post-secondary students and working adults.

IDMANN Academy provides tutorial support for academic advancement and entrance examinations. IDMANN Academy focuses primarily on elementary, middle, and high school-age students. (The Entrance Preparation Program (EPP) at IDMANN Academy also provides tutorial support for some post-secondary entrance examinations.)

The Institute operates the College of General Studies and the School of Experiential Learning. The College of General Studies (CGS) provides broad-based training focusing primarily on personal development and professional advancement. This complements the School of Experiential Learning (SEL) which focuses on technical entrepreneurship courses.

CGS courses have a distinct broad-based curriculum. The courses are intended to “provide a durable, discernible and differentiating set of core competencies & professional values shared by all students of IDMANN Institute irrespective of vocation or field of specialization”.  All our courses are offered online in real-time classes led by seasoned instructors.
