Specialty Courses: Online Opportunities

Each course offered will be either taught with a live virtual instructor or as an online self-paced, allowing you to progress at your own schedule and take the course anytime that is convenient for you.

The courses offered with a live virtual instructor will take place at specific times and you will be required to attend each session to complete the course.

Like an in-person course, the online courses challenge and equip you with the knowledge you need to propel your career and add value for your clients. When you sign up for online self-paced education, you gain access to the knowledge of experienced instructors through written materials, industry-specific curated videos and case studies.  All online self-paced courses have an end-of-course (EOC) exam.
