April 2, 2020

The governor of Ohio announced yesterday his stay at home order will not be lifted April 4th but will remain in effect indefinitely.

All public classes will be held online in our virtual classroom to protect the health of our students, faculty, and staff until the stay at home order is lifted. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. Students scheduled for a public class will receive login instructions from their instructor.

If you do not want to attend a virtual class, you can reschedule your class for a later date by contacting customer service by email at info@academyofbusinesstraining.com or by phone at 888-632-2093.

All of our classes will remain available online until the Coronavirus threat subsides. Through the virtual classroom, you can take any of our courses from the safety of your home, office, or anywhere you have internet access.

A virtual classroom is an online event, and through your computer, you can hear the presentation (like a conference call) and see what the instructor is showing the class. You will be able to see the instructor, ask questions, and join in on discussions just like you would if attending in person.
