What does distance learning mean?
To make the most of the college’s talented staff and hi-tech resources, we are now able to teach the same class in multiple locations at the same time using our streaming video technology. Interact with your instructor and students in our other locations in real-time. A proctor is available at each remote-access site to help troubleshoot the technology.

Online learners access class content, quizzes and tests at the college, at home or anywhere using a personal computer. Remote learning allows an instructor in one place to broadcast lessons live to learners in other locations. Hybrid learning offers a mix of online or remote and in-class personal training to practice hands-on skills.
