With a Virtual Classroom you do not need to provide a facility, we present the class from our studio, but YOU are the host.

You receive 2 free slots in exchange for hosting and advertising the class to other surrounding agencies.  You don’t even need to provide refreshments, because everyone will be viewing the class remotely from the comfort and safety of their own home or office.

When registrations reach 15, the host agency receives an additional free slot.

When registrations reach 20 the host agency receives one more free slot,  for a total of  4 free slots.

 We handle all of the registrations and invoicing from our end.

Virtual Class  Student Participation

Just like an on-location class, students have the opportunity to be placed in the center of breaking   news for mock  interviews and news   conferences.      Students  and instructors act as reporters  by  asking  tough questions

Students are encouraged  to interact  with   each  other   during   discussions about   “best   practices”   in   communicating   via   Social   Media as   well   as   in   the   Mainstream   Media.

Host Responsibilities:

  • Advertising and promoting the class via mailings, faxes, emails, teletypes, notices, postings.
  • We are POST Certified in several states.    If you require POST certification or other State Certification, it is often your responsibility as a Law Enforcement Agency to secure it from your regulatory agency.    We will provide you with a downloadable PDF file with all of the necessary documentation, such as our Course Outline, Lesson Plan, Hourly Breakdown, Objectives, Goals and Bios.

If you would like more information  or if you have any questions or suggestions, we’d love to hear from you.
