Find an instructor-led class near you


Ideal for those who want instructor support but can’t attend classes at a set time. Instructor-supported online classes are offered through Fox Valley Technical College. You will be assigned one instructor for the 12-week course, but there is no required meeting time, so you can complete assignments on your own schedule.
