Self Study/e-Learning

OTech offers two types of self study programs.

  1. Computer Based Training (CBT) whereby you either download a lesson or optionally run it from a CD on your own computer.
  2. On-line Training using the OTech Learning Managment System where you access the classes offered at our OTechU virtual university.
These self study options are great if you want your location, scheduling, and learning pace to meet your individual needs. Because these courses do not involve travel, they are very cost-effective. Note however, that this does not provide the personal interaction needed by some to learn optimally, in which case you might want to check on our face-to-face seminars.

If you are looking to get certified as a PACS administrator, it is suggested you check the accreditation and certification guidelines to find out which on-line training options are recommended for certain certifications.

CBT Courses

These training courses are designed for PCs running Windows. They will not run on Apple computers running Mac OS.

Online Courses using OTechU

  Online Course Packages   DICOM Basics (P-114)   PACS Fundamentals (P-116)   Study Groups   Many distance learning students miss the regular interaction, self-discipline and peer pressure that come from meeting face-to-face with their class mates, especially when preparing for a certification exam. For this reason we’ve created online study groups. Students participating in these groups review and discuss the course materials on a common schedule using a study guide developed by our faculty, all under the guidance of an expert mentor.
