On-Line: On-Line learning is delivered through computer based training in an online environment. Individuals progress through the course at their own pace utilizing a variety of educational materials including visuals, audio, multimedia, online module review exercises, and links to internet resources. Online technical assistance, to clarify course content, is available to a maximum of 3 technical email submissions per Learner.

In-person Classroom: Face-to-face learning is an instructional method where course content and learning material are taught in person to a group of participants. This allows for a live interaction between a Learner and a Trainer. It is the most traditional type of learning instruction.

Virtual Instructor-led: Virtual training is Trainer-led instruction in a virtual or simulated, non-physical environment, when the Learner (or group) and the Trainer are in separate locations. Virtual training and virtual training environments are designed to simulate the traditional in-person classroom learning experience.

Self-study: Individuals self-study the ESA Pre-Master Student Manual, reading one module per week and completing the module review exercise. Online activity is limited to learners accessing the review exercise answer key on a weekly basis.
