What is a Hybrid DLP WFR?

The WFR Hybrid DLP (Distance Learning Program) course is a combination of online learning modules, online exams, and practical sessions. This format perfectly suites busy college students’ and working professionals’ schedule.

Prior to the start of class students will complete course work through an online classroom. The weekend sessions add the practical hands-on component to the learning process.

Word of Caution

DLP courses require the use of technology, and the diligence of the student to self-study. It is imperative that a student register with enough time to study the online materials and pass the exams. This material is difficult, it will take a few hours each night to read and pass the exams. If a student does not pass the exams by the deadlines, they will not be admitted to the practical session and will not pass the class. No refunds are given to those that are not admitted.
