Online Training

Computer Aided Technology provides a comprehensive training offering with a rich set of classes and flexible delivery from our certified training centers.

Despite the value training offers, organizing time for students to travel to a training location is not always feasible. It also comes with additional expenses in both time and travel costs. To provide our customers with the greatest flexibility, we’ve developed online training courses that meet the same high standards as our in-person classroom experiences. Our online courses include:

  • State-of-the-art learning environment. The CATI Virtual Classroom is based on WebEx Online Classroom, the award-winning system from Cisco Systems.
  • Live Instructor. An instructor presents the material live over the web and is constantly available for questions, discussions and mentoring, just as in a standard classroom setting.
  • Full Class Materials. Students will attend the same classes with the same manuals and materials available at our training centers. The materials will be sent prior to the start of class.
  • Full Lab Exercises. Instruction is followed with practice. The exercises are done utilizing our online lab, allowing the instructor to monitor the class and interact to answer questions and provide suggestions in both a group or individual setting.
  • Convenient Schedule. Our classes are scheduled in 1/2 day sessions that allow plenty of time for instruction and exercises. Most classes are held every other day to accommodate busy schedules. The total time for instruction and practice is the same as standard classroom classes. All online classes are based on the Central Time zone.
  • No Travel Required. Students can attend the classes from the office or from anywhere with an internet connection and a phone line.
