Computer-Based Training (CBT)

Computer-Based Training (CBT) is an online, self-paced, interactive training system. CBT lets users set goals and work at their own pace. Course completion times vary by the subject. Our current catalog includes over 2300 courses available online, ranging from basic to advanced technology skills and management skills. With CBT you can:

Access training anytime, anyplace

CBT allows users to take courses on the Internet or download them to their PC and work offline. With CBT where and when one learns is left up to the individual. 

Learn at your own pace

CBT includes tools that lets the individual set goals and reminders. Each individual determines their own learning path and pace. Note that you can end the lesson at any time and resume at your own pace.

Enjoy courses that are interactive and engaging

CBT courses present material in a dynamic way to convey content through a wide array of instructional models. Articles, exercises, mentored exercises, simulations and periodic self assessments are used to engage the learner and give them ownership of their time spent using CBT.

Give your students the big picture

Many faculty use CBT course modules to teach students necessary technology skills required for their academic courses, freeing up class time for other material. Each CBT course includes self-assessment materials so that individuals can measure their own progress and content mastery.
