On-Line Classes or CD-Rom Courses
What's the difference?
Much of the
same content is presented in both of these training media,
though the CD-rom
courses tend to be a little more comprehensive than the
on-line classes. Here are the most important differences:
The machining center and turning center
CD-rom course cover all three tasks a student must master
(programming, setup, and operation) in one course. With the
on-line classes, we cover programming in a separate course from
setup and operation.
CD-rom courses include a hard copy of
your manual. With our on-line classes, you print the manual
as you go through the course.
With CD-rom courses, you receive an
answer book and check your own answers. With our on-line classes
your instructor provides grades and comments for each exercise
courses can be used multiple times to train several people. With
the on-line classes each student must register separately.
