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 withAmatrol, a world-leader in industrial training, to provide e-learning modules.
