The Paralegal Graduate Certificate Program Online Format is a live, instructor-led, fully interactive paralegal certification program designed to provide the education you need to begin a paralegal career or advance an existing career in the legal field. This unique approach to education allows students to attend a virtual classroom using their computer and communicate with the instructor using a headset and voice-over-IP technology. From your home, office or on the road, as long as you have a computer and Internet connection, you can access the virtual classroom.
For the best reception, students should have a headset connected to their computer as well as a hard-line connection to the Internet. A wireless connection is not recommended, unless the computer is sitting next to the modem.
Your computer’s speakers and microphone will not work with the software. You must use a headset.
