Why You Should Choose our Program

Our more than 15 instructors are practicing professionals carefully chosen to teach their area of expertise. One or two instructor programs can't possibly provide the depth of expertise that our cadre of instructors bring. We have all heard the saying "those who can't do, teach." Our instructors are the real deal working every day in their area of clinical practice. They bring you current, up to date information and offer insights from the front lines.

We offer you the convenience of studying at home on your schedule, not ours. We know that you are busy so we have designed the courses in manageable segments of about 2 hours each that you can complete in a reasonable period of time when your schedule permits.  If you get interrupted, simply save your progress and resume later.

Our course saves you money because you study at home. No airfare, travel and hotel expenses, lost wages or time away from your family.

Our course is comprehensive and designed to cover all aspects of the IBLCE Exam content so that you are well and truly prepared to sit for your exam. We have trained successful students for over 15 years.
