The Four Training Platforms:
Home Study – The Home Study program is a wonderful way to take Foundation courses if you are unable to attend our In-Person training or wish to have time to study the materials before taking the optional exam. All courses are able to be taken as Home Study courses, can be started at any time and are completed at your own pace. Home Study courses are great for individuals who are self-starters and enjoy reading through course materials to complete a course.
Web-Based – Web-Based courses are a simple way to receive training without the travel. Web-Based courses are scheduled throughout the year and are hosted on Tuesdays and Wednesdays between noon and 2pm ET online with a live instructor. Each session is recorded and available to review for 30-days after the original posting date. Web-Based courses are great for individuals who want live instructor interaction but need the flexibility of time.
In-Person – In-Person training is offered throughout the year in particular locations across the country. In-Person courses range between 2-4 days in length and are located no more than 10 – 15 minutes from the chosen city’s airport.
Custom – If you have a group of 10 or more employees you would like to train in a particular course at your facility, we can send an instructor to you. Mix and match modules from any courses we offer or host an entire course directly to your employees at a time decided upon by you. Custom Courses are a great option for companies who have a large number of employees they wish to train on a particular subject.
