In response to social distancing guidelines surrounding COVID-19, Instron has launched Virtual Training classes – live, instructor-led materials testing training courses designed to simulate the traditional classroom learning experience without having to leave your home or office.
With the help of the Adobe Connect platform, students will have many of the same capabilities normally available in person, including the ability to ask questions and hear questions from other students, work directly in the materials testing software, and the option to screenshare with the instructor. Instron is currently offering three of their most popular training courses in this new Virtual Training format, including Introduction to Materials Testing, Bluehill Universal Operators, and TestProfiler for Bluehill Universal Users with Advanced Features. There are also plans to roll out additional courses in this format in the coming months. One additional benefit to Instron’s Virtual Training is that there is no minimum attendance requirement, meaning that all classes are guaranteed to run. Larger class sizes may be broken up into separate sessions to ensure a lower student-teacher ratio. For larger group sizes or for custom training requirements, Instron can customize a syllabus around specific needs for both Virtual Training and instructor-led in-person training at your facility. The class schedule for October – December 2020 is available now at go.instron.com/VirtualTraining
