IRVING, Texas—The Electronic Security Association’s National Training School recently launched its new Online Instructor Led Training (OILT) platform, providing synchronous online training to its customers.

“We are extremely excited to deliver this learning format to our National Training School students,” Michelle Yungblut, ESA’s VP of training and certification, said in the announcement. “We are constantly innovating and customizing our classes to deliver the strongest—and most widely accepted—content in training formats that fit the diverse learning styles of our industry’s professionals.”

ESA pointed out in its press release that synchronous online training combines online and live training and activates the student, instructor and course materials all at the same time: “ESA is very excited to launch this new delivery tool, as it will bring the knowledge of its highly qualified and experienced instructors to more technicians. The National Training School is the first in the industry to deliver this method of training.”

NTS will now bring students from across the state or country to an instructor-led course, using high-quality video and screen sharing that allows the instructors to teach the course virtually. Not only can the students see the instructor, but they can also see other students via their webcams. Students can also interact with each other during Q&A sessions or chat features in the tool’s interface.

“Being a not-for-profit organization allows our mission, our purpose, to focus very powerfully—not on our next dollar—but on quality education that allows our customers to learn, get licensed and hone their expertise,” Yungblut added.

The National Training School has released dates for the next round of pilot courses, and more courses will be added throughout the remainder of the year as additional instructors and training providers transition to the new delivery platform.
