How is Our Online Multimedia Training Better than Classroom Training?

  • No Travel Time & Expense
    With online training there's no travel time or expense, no time away from your family, and no time away from work. The average company loses around $500/day for each employee missing work. Can you afford that?

  • Learn at Your Own Speed
    Our online training is self-paced, so you can learn at your own speed and review anything at any time. With classroom learning, the instructor may go too fast or too slow for you, and you don't get the chance to review until you're completely lost.

    For future training, you can skip the modules you've already taken and spend your time learning the new material.
  • Consistency
    Our online instructors never have a bad day, never fumble over an explanation, and never cancel class.

    If you have questions, an instructor is just a phone call or email away! And our Frequently Asked Questions section has common questions asked by students.
  • Easy to Use
    If you can send an email, you can use our online learning system.

    Our instructors have decades of experience teaching adults, and present the materials in multiple ways to help you understand and retain the information.

    Our training is built in modules, and completing the modules for one certification will often cover all or most of the modules for other certifications.
  • Lowest Price Guaranteed
    With our Best Price Guarantee, you know you're getting the lowest possible price.
