We use a digital learning platform called Evolve by Elsevier. The platform is loved by both students and instructors because it helps us seamlessly train students using a combination of digital learning, hands-on learning, and teacher instruction.

The foundation of our teaching is the curriculum set forth by National Performance Specialists (NPS). This curriculum, along with the Elsevier platform and our experience, helps prepare each student to pass the National Certification Exam through NPS.
