What is Virtual Instructor-led Training (VILT)?

If live NEC electrical code training is not an option, virtual training provides your employees with the same information taught in live classrooms. With NEC online training, employees receive face-to-face live video instruction from experienced instructors. Live online instruction is supported through virtual classroom interaction, group discussions, and training exercises to improve knowledge retention. Frequent pop quizzes help instructors gauge student understanding before continuing with NEC training.

NEC online training can be completed in any location where an employee can access a computer with a microphone, webcam, and internet connection. To ensure the highest quality instruction, TPC’s virtual training instructors meet the same rigorous criteria demanded of our offsite instructors. All NEC electrical code instructors combine years of educational and industrial experience. For companies concerned with employee health and safety, online NEC training comes with built-in social distancing.
