1. How do online courses work?

You’ll receive a password to access the course via the Internet, where you will open your lessons.
You’ll work on the course when you have time each day, instead of having to login at a certain time.
Your assignments will include readings, writing reports, formulating reactions, and participating in online discussions with fellow students.

2. Can I take courses in the program prior to the officially registering for the ETC program?

Yes, you can take some courses prior to registering for the ETC program, but courses more than a couple of years old might not be accepted once you register since technology rapidly changes. Check with the program director for specifics.
