The offered packages include ready-made IDA ICE lectures and exercises, making it easy to get started quickly, even for educators with no prior experience in teaching IDA ICE.

There are three levels available: Basic, Intermediate and Advanced. Each level contains of several courses, and each course contains of several lesson modules. As the material is module based, it is possible to customize the content and tailor-make the training so that it fits both your course plan and your time schedule.

IDA ICE Educational Classroom and Department licenses are available for universities, allowing for both teaching and research purposes. Students can also utilize licenses on their own computers for e.g. home assignments and for thesis works.
