Instructor-Led Courses

Since ANSI established its Education and Training Services Department in 1995, the majority of our full - and half-day courses have utilized the traditional, classroom-based method of delivering education.

Live, instructor-led training is considered by all to be the most effective, as it best facilitates real-time interaction, in-depth information sharing and direct response to questions. Few educational opportunities are considered more valuable than meeting and interfacing directly with an instructor, staff support for various programs, and other students.

The Institute will continue to offer its courses during a limited number of face-to-face, instructor-led programs around the country each year.

Web-based training

Web-based training is a way of delivering one of ANSI’s traditional “classroom” courses via the Internet and a phone connection. These full-day, “online” versions of ANSI’s traditional instructor-led programs are segmented into three two-hour sessions with coffee and lunch breaks between the segments.

Participation is possible anywhere there is a telephone and a computer with Internet access. Audio is delivered over the telephone (toll free) and the slide show and relevant documents can be viewed simultaneously via a web browser. Students save on travel time and expenses.

Each web-based training course will be facilitated by an ANSI instructor and may include relevant ANSI staff members. Participants also have an opportunity to ask questions during the session on the phone, or by typing in questions through an online “chat” feature.

Virtual workshops

Just like web-based training, students participate in virtual workshops and forums using the Internet and a telephone - no special software is required. The only difference is that virtual workshops concentrate on a single or focused set of topics. These web-based courses are usually short – often only two hours each – and provide a forum for high-level discussions on specific issues. 

Many of the customized workshops are designed around the key questions submitted by the participants prior to the session. Participants also have any opportunity to ask additional questions during the session.

Each virtual workshop will be facilitated by an ANSI instructor and may include relevant ANSI staff members. The workshops are limited to the first 15 people who register to allow for optimum participant interaction. Participants also have an opportunity to ask questions during the session on the phone, or by typing in questions through an online “chat” feature.

E-learning programs - www.StandardsLearn.org

www.StandardsLearn.org is ANSI’s education portal for web-based e-learning programs.

The general definition of e-learning today has changed from “the use of the Internet to deliver courses online” to “enabling, extending, and enhancing learning through the use of technology, including but not limited to the Internet and intranets.” In order to differentiate ANSI’s web-based offerings, e-learning is defined as self-paced, asynchronous (not live) training programs.

For upcoming course dates, times, delivery options and fees, please see the Education and Training Schedule.
