Online Courses With Instructor-Guided Learning

Independent online study in a structured course format, where you engage with instructors in virtual classroom sessions. While your online sessions are structured, you have the flexibility to complete work on your own time, on your schedule.

Hybrid Learning

A mix of instructor-led online instruction and face-to-face campus sessions, giving you the opportunity to gain hands-on skills in a classroom setting. Much like online instructor-guided learning, your online classes will be scheduled but you’re in control of when you study. On-campus lab sessions will be scheduled as well.

The Practicum

Most of our programs include a mandatory practicum that gives our students the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge learned in class in a real-work environment. Our Workforce Team will help you find a placement that matches your skills and meets your goals.

Your practicum is an excellent way to gain hands-on training with industry professionals in a real work environment, something many employers look for when hiring.
