University Programs

Our University Programs provide a unique opportunity to complete LTI courses and are just one more way we’re meeting you where you are.

Across the country, there are a number of universities/colleges that incorporate our LTI courses into their curriculum.

There are also universities/colleges that teach courses that align with our certifications and meet our requirements for select LTI courses.

Only those universities/colleges that we have a partnership with will receive credit for LTI courses that can be used toward certification.
