“One of the amazing aspects of these programs is that we are able to deliver them in a virtual environment while still providing all of the benefits of a traditional hands-on, interactive in-classroom experience,” says Nancy Dimis, Assistant Director of Corporate Training and Professional Education at University of South Florida. “This enables students from different locations, even out of the Tampa Bay area, to participate in the program without the inconvenience of a bi-weekly commute.
