A VILT (Virtual Instructor Led Training) solution is a live online interactive classroom solution delivered anywhere you are via the Internet. VILT classes are led by expert certified trainers who deliver engaging learning solutions and activities face-to-face just like a classroom and then assign you work to do independently. You and other participants will interact with the instructor and each other in ways that ensure and encourage learning. Active independent learning is also required of the participant. Participant must be available for face-to-face virtual class schedules and must complete individual and group assignments to fulfill the assessment strategy for each solution to avoid disqualification.

The project management track is delivered daily between 8:30 am and 1:30 pm as they are short courses. All other tracks are delivered over a period ranging from 5 to 25 weeks between 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm 2 or 3 times a week during workdays Sunday through Thursday with a few exceptions meeting also on Saturdays.
