DISTANCE LEARNING TOOLS

DHS IM Training uses a wide variety of tools to produce and distribute training materials.  Some of these tools require an additional piece of software to enable them to function properly. This type of software is used throughout the industry for delivering information over the Internet.

To maximize your participation in distance learning initiatives, it is recommended that your computer be equipped with all of the following players, plug-ins, and viewers. These are free downloads that have been reviewed by Partner Training Services prior to use in our courses. As new courses are produced, we will provide information on which additional software pieces are needed for the courses to function properly.

Be sure to check with your supervisor or local IT department prior to downloading or installing anything on your work computer.
