Video Lectures and Expert Instruction:

Our unique delivery simulates a one-on-one classroom environment, creating a more personal learning experience. Our highly certified expert instructors possess a superior understanding of the subject matter in their fields and have the ability to convey this knowledge in an effective, engaging, and professional manner to a wide audience. Practical knowledge is essential for success in a real world environment and we have chosen our instructors with this in mind - many of our instructors are business owners and have been employed in their respective fields for decades!


The hands-on demonstrations in our training allow the student to view practical application of concepts in real-world environments. Demonstrations are a way for the instructor to present how to perform a task on-screen in front of the student. This feature gives the student the power to see tasks performed by a professional in the intended environment as many times as they would like, without purchasing expensive software.

PowerPoint Slides and Visuals:

Our courses feature PowerPoint slides to illustrate concepts and complement the expert instruction. Many of the in-depth theories and processes discussed in our courses can be learned most efficiently through the detailed PowerPoint slides we provide. These slides are accompanied by an instructor voiceover to provide our students with a clear, efficient, and complete presentation of concepts.

Student Workbooks

Our courses feature printable Student Workbooks for every chapter. Our printable Student Workbooks are a study tool that allows students to take notes and bring the course material with them when they may not have access to a computer. Workbooks can also be used electronically to quickly review PowerPoint slides and training topics.
