The Virtual Training Model

You experience the same high-quality training as you would by traveling to a conventional training center for both classroom instruction and hands-on labs without the costs, and inconvenience, of travel.

With SilverLake information System Virtual Training solutions, you can attend fully interactive, live training sessions from anywhere in the world using only your computer and an internet connection. From your desktop you can interact with other students and instructors in real time as well as access and control real equipment in the remote SilverLake virtual training data center.

Optionally, your training events can be fully planned, managed and supported by SilverLake including student registration and curriculum management services through our Learning Management Systems partners.
