DBO-1 is Live Instructor-led eLearning in a virtual Zoom classroom environment. This method of training allows for group exercises and one on one instruction with the use of breakout rooms. The instructor can see the work that students do remotely as if he was in the room with them enabling real-time feedback.

Students connect securely to a remote learning platform that is hosted in the cloud. The learning experience is comparable to in-person sessions without the added cost of travel.
