Due to Cornonavirus concerns we have made the decision to convert the Wenv 160 QRP Management offerings to a fully electronic live broadcast. You will be able to view the content and participate from anywhere with a computer and internet access. Luckily, AFIT offers about half our courses via distance learning already and we are very good at it; so it will still be a really good course and very similar to what you would get in the residential version (the main drawback is that you won’t get the valuable networking benefits). You will be able to ask your questions live, chat with fellow classmates, take a virtual field trip, and participate in valuable group exercises.

COURSE CREDIT:  3.0 CEUs in compliance with IACET standards
