As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, NVTI is moving its in-person courses to live virtual online training. All classes in Dallas are canceled until further notice.

Accessibility for students with accessibility considerations is a top priority for NVTI. As such, please let us know if you require accessibly considerations to participate in a virtual class. If accessibility considerations are required and that course is not yet accessible in the virtual setting, we will assist you in registering for a later class.
If you have never participated in a virtual training, below are some FAQs that will help ensure you have an engaging and valuable virtual classroom experience.
Virtual Class FAQs:
What does a virtual class look like?
If you’ve taken the 1-hour course kickoff session for any of the NVTI online cohorts, Legal Guidance Affecting Veterans Employment Services, Removing the Employability Gap for Veterans with SBE, or Veterans’ Benefits Online, then you’ve seen our virtual classroom space. Virtual classes will have a live instructor teaching the course. We use a software called Adobe Connect Pro that allows your instructor to show slides and share their screen, allows you to talk and type to the whole group, as well as to individual classmates in private chats, and allows for small groups to collaborate on exercises in breakout rooms. The virtual classroom experience allows for a great deal of collaboration and conversation.
What equipment do I need to take a virtual class?
You need a laptop or desktop computer (mobile devices and tablets are not recommended) with internet connection. You may take the class with wireless internet but some individuals in lower bandwidth locations find it helps to be hardwired. Because the audio for these classes is Voice Over IP (VOIP), you will also need a headset with a microphone. Many participants use the headsets that come with their mobile phones and simply plug them into their computers. It is recommended that you use a wired headset versus one that connects via Bluetooth.
