All our regular instructor-led classes are running both in-person, and live-online, from our Greenbelt, Maryland campus.

We have been successfully running socially distanced, in-person classes since May last year, when COVID restrictions were relaxed. Students are expected to adhere to our COVID protocols and we are keeping the facilities clean and safe.

If you have concerns about attending class, note that all our classes are being streamed live online, so if you are not comfortable attending in-person classes, you can attend virtually.

Keeping students and staff healthy and safe

As a business, keeping students and staff safe is our top priority. To maintain a healthy learning environment, we will continue to follow Maryland State and National Government guidelines.

We will also continue to enforce the following COVID protocols:

  • As part of the enrollment process, you will be expected to sign a short document confirming that you have met some basic health criteria related to COVID.
  • Face masks will be worn at all times.
  • The TrainACE staff will ensure that classrooms, offices, equipment and surfaces are cleaned throughout the day.
  • Hand-sanitizer will be available in every classroom.
  • In-person class sizes will be strictly limited for purposes of social distancing.
  • Social distancing in class and communal areas of the offices is required.
  • Students will not gather in the break room area; this will remain open for access to classrooms and use of facilities only (sink).

IMPORTANT! – As you will be aware by now, the pandemic situation can change rapidly. We assess the pandemic situation daily and will adapt our opening policies accordingly. If the situation deteriorates, or we find that students are not adhering to our policies, we will return to providing classes online only. If the Federal or the Maryland State government issue new shut-down orders we will follow them.

Live-Online classes will continue

Rest assured that all our live classes are also running online. If you prefer to attend class virtually from the comfort of your own home, or you’re concerned about attending in-person classes during the pandemic, we will continue to run all our classes in the live-online format.

Our experience with the live-online format is that students get the same quality of instruction as they would when physically attending class. You can ask the instructor questions and interact with other students, which gives you a richer experience and better helps you master the material. The live aspect of the training will also help you keep focused on relevant topics, so you can be sure you've covered all the requirements for the exam in a timely manner.

Exams and our Pearson VUE Test Center

Our Pearson VUE Test Center is open for people wishing to test in-person. In addition, most certification vendors are now allowing students to take proctored exams online, if you have appropriate set up. If you wish to take an exam online, you can call us for details on how to set that up.

Questions or concerns?

We will continue to monitor and adapt to the changing circumstances and will keep you informed of any changes. If you have any further questions or concerns call us at (301) 220 2802

Finally, we want to recognize that these are difficult times, and this emergency is going to affect everyone in different ways. Rest assured that we are doing everything we can to play our part in flattening-the-curve, while enabling you to get the training you need in a safe and timely manner.
