Is Distance Learning Right For You?
Tip written by: Infraspection Institute
Advancements in technology have reshaped traditional approaches to education. Students are now able to study a wide variety of subjects, including thermography, from virtually anywhere in the world.
Distance learning may be defined as any situation where the student and the instructor are in physically separate locations. Distance instruction may be live or pre-recorded and can be delivered via video presentations, remote teleconferencing, and web-based presentations.
Distance learning provides several advantages over the traditional classroom setting. Chief among these are the elimination of travel costs, 24 hour availability, and increased convenience in scheduling. The availability of Distance Learning courses for thermography is particularly beneficial to thermographers with hectic schedules.
When selecting Distance Learning courses for thermography, be sure to determine the following:
- How and when is course delivered
