Our courses are internet based and instructor led. Each course is scheduled over specified dates.
Our courses are more than watching a series of videos online. Students are required to complete assignments and exercises for each module to ensure the transfer of training.
Each week our instructors encourage student interaction through discussions and other assignments.
Course instructors monitor student activity carefully. The training is designed to challenge students in a way that helps them retain the information.

Do students have to be online at specific times?
Yes and no. Our courses are instructor lead and are broken down into weekly modules. As long as you can complete the assignments by the deadline indicated in the course, your time online is up to you. Some instructors may have specific times they'll be available via chatrooms. These chats are optional and are meant as an opportunity for you to discuss assignments and receive additional instruction.
How long will it take me to complete the course?
Generally, our classes are 5 weeks long with assignments, lectures, exercises, and more due each week. Students should expect to spend 8 hours per week on course work. The advantage of online training is students can take as little or as much time as they need to learn the week's material prior to the module deadline.
Can I work ahead so I can finish sooner?
No. The instructors will lead the class of students through the material one week (module) at a time. Each module becomes available upon completion of the previous module. You'll only have access to the course information one module at a time.
How will I be graded for my work?
In general, you'll receive credit for participation in discussions, as well as your grades on weekly tests, assignments, and exercises. A score of 80% or better is required to pass the course.
How do I contact an instructor for help?
Our instructors will be available for you to contact via email throughout the course. Simply email them describing the problem you're experiencing and they will help you.
What if I can't complete an assignment on time?
You're responsible for managing your time so the course deadlines are met. During the 5 week course, it's suggested you login daily to complete course work in smaller sections rather than waiting and trying to do it all at once. Your instructor will work with you throughout the course to keep you on track with course assignments.
