Training is available anywhere, anytime. Students advance at their own pace and can return to the courses for "just-in-time" reference. Skill Assessment helps students measure their progress. There is sound instructional design and consistent content for all students. Throughout the courses there are multi-step simulations to give students an opportunity to practice what they have learned.

If an employee leaves the department, the student ID may be reassigned to another staff member for the balance of the license period.
