How it Works:

After you have gained access to the course you are ready to begin your training session.

All courses use video to present at least 90% of the course material. Most courses involve you in the instruction by asking you to make decisions and express your opinions. As you complete each lesson the computer determines your understanding of the key learning points. These "quizzes" are not like the ones you dreaded in school. Our questions help discover areas where you need review and reinforcement.
