How our "Live" Online Training Works

On ACTA's Online Campus, every student interacts "live" with their instructor.  Even students with little computer experience find it easy to engage in class activities, go on web field trips with the class, ask questions, and most importantly, learn what they need to know to benefit themselves and their employer.

 


Structured System of Hands-on Assignments

ACTA partners with contractors to make sure students receive the knowledge and hands-on experience needed to be successful.  

Each year, students receive 96 hours of hands-on training where they take exams, draft fittings and fabricate with an ACTA instructor.


Certificates

A Journeyman's Card and Certificate of Completion will be awarded to apprentices who successfully complete all class requirements, finish 6500 work hours, and pass the journeyman exit exam.
