One-on-One and Group Training

The division offers training in both one-on-one and group settings. The training is customized to meet your needs and includes hands-on practice. We encourage you to bring your own devices and course materials with you to training; so, that you can apply what you are learning to an actual course. Schools, departments, and other entities can schedule a group training session at either the eLPS office or another location. Group training is particularly useful when adopting a new technology or for new instructors. Contact the division at to schedule training.
