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.
