IST e-Learning

The IST e-Learning Program is a computer-based independent study program that is accessed online at your convenience. At set points during the curriculum, students come to the lab to practice new skills and check their knowledge using pre- and post-assessments and assignments. Lab assignments are held in the IST lab during scheduled hours. All students are provided with participant manuals and other materials to complete outside reading assignments, and to use for later reference.

Columbus State contracts with Amatrol, a world-leader in industrial training, to provide e-learning modules.
