New Horizons offers 5 convenient and flexible learning methods:

 

  • Instructor Led (ILT) – Certified instructors guide learners through material in a traditional classroom setting where they participate in group activities, complete labs, and ask questions.
  • Online Live (OLL) – A live classroom experience broadcast online allowing learners to attend training virtually from home or the office.
  • Mentored Learning (ML) – A more flexible schedule than ILT. Students get one-on-one mentoring from a New Horizons professional, and the course can be taken in a center or online.
  • Hosted Distance Learning (HDL) – Experience a supportive learning environment by taking an online course at one of New Horizon’s locations. Enjoy an environment free of distraction with no worries about technical issues or setup time.
  • On-Site Training (OST) – Certified instructors guide learners through material in a traditional classroom setting where they participate in group activities, complete labs, and ask questions at an on-site facility.

 

The flexibility of these programs allows you to advance your skills in an efficient way, as you create a solid foundation to build your computer knowledge. Empower yourself today and maximize your effectiveness.
