Education “in a box”

Education “in a box” means that we deliver everything you need to take your students from the street to a career.

Each competency-based course has six components that are assembled together when a learning path is created.

They are all included in our “education in a box”.


Component 1 education in a boxPre-learning assessment

Determines a student’s strengths, weakness, knowledge, and skills prior to instruction.

Component 21 education in a boxInteractive content

Interactive, simulation-based content that immerses the student in the subject-matter.

Component 3 education in a boxStudent study guides

Student study guides help the student prepare for the assessment and certification exams.

Component 4 education in a boxPost learning assessment

Post-learning assessments ensure mastery is achieved by everyone. Students can take the assessments multiple times until they achieve a 100% passing score.

Component 5 education in a boxCertification exam testing

Where skills certification is required, we can create certification exams that align with the learning path.

Component 6 education in a boxHands-on training guides

The final step in the learning process is hands-on application of knowledge. Our hands-on training guides give precise instructions for the hands-on training component.

Industry defined education in a box

Every skills course is created with academic input.

Academic partners define the competencies and work with our staff to create the courses.

Every course is credit worthy at one or more academic institution.

This means that our skills courses always align with academic standards.

We started this company to help schools broaden their reach, increase the utilization of the physical assets, and to transform great education into a medium that reaches the non-traditional student.
