About Us


It all started with our own training businesses. We developed technology to support our live events and deliver distance education. Soon others were asking to use the system that made our offerings easier to deliver and more profitable. That's when Roundabout Education was born.  

We have our own training businesses that we work in every day. So, our system is constantly tested, refined and improved. We are delighted with the results because using the Roundabout platform increased our ROI in ways that we didn't imagine when we first started. 

We think you will learn, just as many other companies around the country have... Roundabout is the easiest and most cost effective way to communicate, deliver, educate and train for all your education and training needs!
