Maximize Your In-field Training
Traditionally, the SRT-1 Technician level course is taught with a recommended (1) day classroom + (2) days field work paradigm. The SRT-1 Online Preload offers the ability to study at a pace that is comfortable for the individual over a period of time is better for others. Studies have shown that actually this is more the case. Bottom line, spending time on the theory and techniques that will be covered and are required for certification prepares the student better for in-field, hands on exercises. Although the 8 hour classroom may be effective, having days or weeks to review and study the material allows the student to thoroughly absorb the curriculum.
