No matter what type of training style you’re looking for—instructor-led, virtual, on-site, high-definition instructor-led, or customized training, we’ve got it. LRS® Education Services makes learning convenient no matter what type of training best suits you.

Instructor-Led Training

For the traditional learner and education experience, instructor-led training is available on-site at both our Springfield and Bloomington Education facilities. Our certified instructors are also available to provide training on-site at a location of your choosing such as your office. LRS Education Services is able to deliver the training you need in a way that meets your needs and accommodates your business.

Virtual Training

Need it closer to your office? Virtual Training allows students to participate in a traditional instructor-led class without needing to be in a classroom. Remote students log-in, listen to, see and interact with the instructor and other classroom students. Virtual Training students can login from anywhere (with an internet connection and a computer) and participate in the class just like they are there. Students receive the same course materials, participate in hands-on labs, and can interact with the instructor and fellow classmates. 

So what’s the advantage of Virtual Training? Time and cost savings. Travel time to and from a training facility are eliminated as well as the costs associated with traveling—transportation, lodging, meals, etc. This cost-effective method of learning has all the benefits you expect from LRS Education Services without the associated costs that come with attending a classroom session. Read more.
