Online learning gives you the flexibility to plan study time around the rest of your day. Our programs combine video, hands-on lab exercises and one-on-one facilitation to enable you to learn as your schedule allows. Labs are performed via remote access to a dedicated lab machine (unless a student requests to utilize their own equipment). Our unique commitment to student success includes a personal instructor to assure that your courses are completed on time and with full understanding of both the lecture content and the lab exercises.
