Instructor Led Online

Subject matter expert instructors guide learning outcomes and provide key support.  An instructor is available to answer questions and provide feedback on assignments. Each week students receive an online assignment. The assignments may include reading a chapter in your text, completing an assignment to post on the discussion board, taking a self-check test, or collaborating with other students using discussion boards and other engagement methods.  Students are expected to keep pace with the course syllabus as presented by the instructor.


Guided Learning 

If you find attending live classes difficult with your busy schedule and family obligations, Guided Learning is a powerful option. For each Guided Learning class you will be required to study on your own; however, you will have an instructor available to assist with material. Upon registering for a Guided Learning class your textbook will be mailed to you and your completion window along with access to the new CFTEA Workplace will be emailed to you.  On the CFTEA Workplace site, you will find everything you need to complete the course including a suggested syllabus and downloadable versions of the activities you will need to complete. Open book exams will be taken on the CFTEA Workplace and can be taken from any computer.  No more waiting on your instructor for corrections or the mail for course exams.  With Guided Learning you are free to work at your own pace on your own time.



Live training options provide face-to-face access to the instructor as well as fellow learners at a location near you.  Instruction provides a live channel for discussions, experience sharing and networking. Students attend in-person at a specified location and time.
