Time constraints, travel budget limitations, and commutes. The three most common challenges you fight to overcome to get the training you need. We’ve heard the voices of our students, and have the solution to win the battle once and for all! Introducing The Remote Student Experience…

To make training more convenient and easily accessible, we now offer you the ability to register as a Remote Student in our live classroom training sessions. You will be able to fully engage with the instructor and your classmates in real-time by joining a live classroom session remotely.

Remote student participation is just one of several flexible training delivery methods we offer to remove obstacles and help ensure that your professional and organizational goals are achieved.

"Virtual and Remote classes are a great money saver for the government. They don’t have to pay for airfare, lodging, or per diem. This set up is double awesome if your organization allows you to take the classes from the comfort of your own home."Joe B., Budget Analyst Veterans Affairs

“I really enjoyed the format of not having to travel and the content was delivered the same as if I was in the classroom. The materials were right on – it was just really good. I’m looking forward to the next Remote class that I have at the end of the month. I just appreciate you all doing the Remote option because it really helps alleviate travel challenges while still getting the same experience you would in a classroom.” –  Janalyn Mitsiopoulos, FDIC

FAQs for Management Concepts Remote Students

What does it mean to be a Remote Student?

To be a Remote Student means that you join a live classroom training course remotely from the convenience of your home or office. Using the Adobe Connect™ platform, you will be able to fully engage in the live classroom training, led by an industry expert instructor. You will be able to see and hear the instructor’s presentation using a headset (provided by Management Concepts), interact with the instructor and fellow students, perform all of the required course exercises, as well as participate in breakout sessions.

What are the benefits of being a Remote Student?

  • You will have the convenience of virtually attending a live classroom training course (via the Internet) at your home or office.
  • You will save travel budget expenses by avoiding airfare, hotel, and rental car costs.
  • You will interact with your instructor and classmates in real time during your class.

Is there a difference in cost for attending a Management Concepts course as a Remote Student vs. being a live classroom student?

No. The cost of the course is the same for students who will physically be in the classroom and those who are participating remotely.

Will I have the same course materials as the live classroom students?

Yes. Live classroom students will receive course materials when they arrive for the class. Remote student participants will be provided with course materials and a headset by FedEx delivery approximately three to five business days before the class start date. NOTE: Remote student participants must register at least seven calendar days prior to the class start date in order to allow sufficient time for material shipment.

Where can I participate in a training course as a Remote Student?

You can participate in a training course from your home, office, or any location of your choice. While not required, we do recommend that you use a high-speed, hard wired Internet connection. You will need to validate your equipment prior to the course start date to ensure it meets the required specifications.

What platform is used for Remote Students to take part in the live classroom sessions?

Management Concepts uses Adobe Connect™ to enable our Remote Students to be fully engaged in our live classroom sessions. You will conduct your hands-on exercises through a remote connection to a classroom computer. Your instructor will be able to monitor your progress and offer assistance if needed.

How will I interact with my instructor and classmates during class?

You will be able to speak to the instructor through the USB headset we will provide to you along with your course materials. You will also be able to communicate via the Adobe Connect™ Chat Pod by typing private messages to the instructor or to your classmates. You will hear the instructor’s presentation, and your classmates’ questions and comments through the headset as well.

What is a breakout session and how does it work?

A breakout session allows the instructor to separate the attendees into smaller groups in order to complete group activities. When you are placed in a breakout room, you will have access to collaboration tools that all participants in your breakout group can utilize. NOTE: Not all classes have breakout sessions.

Can I take the exam associated with my course?

Yes. If there is an exam required for the course, Remote Students will be instructed to access Student Central,, to access their exam. If you have forgotten your password, use the “Lost Password” feature. If you forgot your user name, send an e-mail to for assistance. Once you are logged in to Student Central, links will display for all available classes (class name and class ID). When you click the link for your class, you will be redirected to the class page which will contain a link for the appropriate exam. Click the exam link to begin the exam, which will be taken immediately following the end of the class. NOTE: Not all classes have exams.

When and how do I receive my course completion certificate?

Approximately two weeks after the class end date, if you have full attendance, completed the course requirements, and when applicable, passed a final exam, you will receive your course completion certificate via e-mail where a link will be provided to view and/or print your certificate.

What happens if I have technical problems during my class?

Should you experience technical difficulties during the classroom session, call our technical support team, toll-free, at 844.876.7476 or send an e-mail to us at
