Who Should Take Self-Paced Online Training?

Self-paced online training allows you to learn these skills online, any time that works for you. This is a good option for those whose work or family commitments make it difficult to attend scheduled training.

Because the training is self-paced, you will not have interaction with an instructor or with other participants, and there is no specific class schedule that you are required to follow. That means you will need to be persistent and motivated to stay on track to complete your training.
