ESA National Training School Launches Instructor-Led Online Platform
Synchronous online training combines online and live training and activates the student, ESA instructor and course materials all at the same time.
IRVING, Texas — The Electronic Security Association’s (ESA) National Training School has launched its new online instructor-led training platform to provide synchronous online training to its customers.
“We are extremely excited to deliver this learning format to our National Training School students,” says Michelle Yungblut, ESA’s vice president of training and certification. “We are constantly innovating and customizing our classes to deliver the strongest — and most widely accepted — content in training formats that fit the diverse learning styles of our industry’s professionals.”
Synchronous online training combines online and live training and activates the student, instructor and course materials all at the same time.
NTS will now bring students in states or across the nation to an instructor-led course, using high-quality video and screen sharing that allows the instructors to teach the course virtually. Not only can the students see the instructor, but they can also see other students via their webcams.
The new NTS online platform is the first of its kind to deliver this method of training in the security industry, according to an announcement.
Students can also interact with each other during Q&A sessions or chat features in the tool’s interface.
Because NTS courses are developed by industry professionals with in-depth experience in security integration, courses focus on practical skills and knowledge relevant to the required jobs and tasks in a subject area.
“Being a not-for-profit organization allows our mission, our purpose, to focus very powerfully, not on our next dollar, but on quality education that allows our customers to learn, get licensed and hone their expertise,” Yungblut says.
The NTSchool has released dates for the next round of pilot courses:
More courses will be added throughout the remainder of the year, as additional instructors and training providers transition to the new delivery platform.
