Learning Convenience

While you can contact our instructors through the platform, if you prefer a face-to-face discussion, you can meet with our staff instructors who hold regular office hours on campus.

Regularly Scheduled VILT Sessions

With real-time delivery in a live, online format Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) blends the qualities of Instructor-Led classroom training with the convenience of a virtual, online classroom. Training is achieved via an easy-to-use web application where our highly-qualified and experienced instructors provide real-time instruction and interaction.

You can chat real-time with instructors or other classmates that are geographically dispersed from all over the world. It’s fairly common to be in a classroom with firefighters and EMTs deployed overseas and even over at the next fire station.

VILT presents opportunities for you to advance your skills while gaining access to your peers  and experts from other locations.
