➔ Online (eLearning) Courses


Online (eLearning) Courses e-Learning programs, Web-based (Online) or Computer based (CDROM), provide an excellent training alternative to the classroom. e-Learning programs use video, audio, text and are adaptable to each learner's preference of information gathering and speed of comprehension. e-Learning also allows greater mobility of training, removing the barriers of time and location, and are virtually irreplacable in conducting objective testing.
