Credentialed Online Courses
Although Live Training is the most effective method of teaching, it isn't the most efficient -- either for the instructor or for the students.
Instructors generally like to keep classes under 25 students (or even less due to certification issues) which limits the number of students they can teach each year -- and students have the expense -- beyond the price of the class -- of time away from work, travel, hotel and food.
Also, live training generally means attending courses close to home -- which can sometimes mean compromising on instructor quality.
In contrast, Online Training is extremely efficient. Once the course is produced, there is no limit in the number of students who can take a course and it can be taken from the comfort of one's own home, at the student's own pace.
The two problems with online courses is that they were boring (due to being heavily texted-based) and valid assessment of physical techniques was near impossible.
We have addressed these issues with our unique online training programs. These programs consist primarily of short videos for each module of the course and a new technology is used to make it possible to perform valid skill assesments.
In addition to a video, each module includes written materials to review and a short quiz, which must be passed before proceeding. Then, at the end of the course, students are required to take a written examination and complete a series of practical exercises, which is where our proprietary technology comes in. The course experience is very much like being in a classroom with the instructor.
All of our online courses are credentialed through Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) in Green Bay, WI - one of the top public safety college programs in the country. Our clients enroll as students at NWTC and receive a college certificate upon satisfactory completion of the course.
