Did you know that the Foundation has 4 different options to access the training you need?
Home Study: The AESF Foundation Home Study program is a wonderful way to take courses if you are unable to attend our in-person training or wish to have more time to study the materials. The Home Study program courses are based around the course materials that you receive in the mail when you sign up for the program. The materials include lessons as well as homework that you will work through with our Technical Director. He’ll be a source of answers to questions about the material, will grade homework and offer suggestions to improve your skills.
In-Person Training: This option is offered in specific locations across the country at a hotel no more than 10-15 minutes from the airport. In-Person courses are in a classroom setting where you will receive course materials and work through them over 2-4 days depending on the course. This is optimal for someone looking to have live instructor interaction and a dedicated time to take the course.
Web-Based Courses: Get your questions answered without leaving the office. Participants will dial into the training session and access the web to follow along with the presentation. Questions can be asked and will be answered directly from the instructor teaching the course. This is a great option if you cannot travel but still want to participate in a live course.
Custom Training: A qualified training instructor will develop and teach a curriculum according to your company’s needs. You can pick and choose which modules or course(s) you would like presented and we come directly to you to teach. Custom proposals are put together for each training.
