The amount of hands-on training that each student must have to graduate prepares them to enter the workforce with confidence. Our online students are just like our in class students. We give them same attention as if they were in the classroom.
According to Dr. Kimmel, “We have been educating students both in class and online for over eleven years. Our philosophy is that all students should receive the same quality training, and that is why we have dedicated instructors for online classes who can answer questions and help students to learn and understand the material.”
