Online training courses can be taken in multiple sittings, and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to better accommodate busy schedules. In a mobile world, training now can take place on the road, in the café, at home, or any place with an internet-accessible computer. Courses have been designed using instructional best practices with participants interactively engaged resulting in higher levels of cognitive engagement and retention. Online courses are available in the fields of communications, corrections, electric power, electronics/semiconductor manufacturing, explosives and ordinance training, fire, forensics, law enforcement, safety and health, school safety, security, supply chain distribution management, water and wastewater, and WMD terrorism.
