Instructor Led Online

Students receive the same quality as an in-class course, with a live instructor and the ability to participate in hands-on labs through real-life examples

ILOs help cut costs by reducing time and travel as they can be taken from home or the office and require only the use of a computer, high-speed wired internet and a headset.

Self Paced

Students can receive the same high-quality training, with the same courseware at their own speed and schedule with SPVC.  Individuals with busy schedules can complete a course over a 30-day timeframe at a lower price than in-class or ILO courses.
