ATL offers virtual Instructor-Led Training (vILT) courses for Sample Master® and TITAN® LIMS

ATL is excited to offer virtual Instructor-Led Training (vILT) courses for ATL Sample Master® and TITAN®. These courses are taught exclusively online and the goal is to emulate a traditional classroom environment without the travel and time costs. One of the benefits of vILT courses is the ability to break up the class in 1-2 hour sessions and schedule these sessions over a period of time. This allows students to get the benefits of live instructor-led training and the flexibility of mixing the training in with the flow of the student’s normal work schedule. All sessions will be recorded – a benefit when schedules change unexpectedly or if students want to review certain sections of the training.

“I choose to learn from the best and I believe ATL's team of instructors is just that. Joanne is a great teacher and in just five short meetings, I was able to gain skills that I will be able to utilize throughout the rest of my career. I gained much more from the course than I anticipated -- and I had high expectations. The vILT courses are very convenient. For those who can't travel to boot camp held in NC, it provides as a viable alternative. I was also highly satisfied with the technology used in the course. I look forward to more vILT courses in the future!”
