AMBER Alert’s New Virtual Training Option:
Live, Instructor-Led and Interactive!

Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in real-time, interactive training even when travel and in-person events are not an option. We now offer live, virtual training, led by subject matter experts and designed to engage you just as you would in the classroom.

Via web camera and microphone on your PC or laptop, you’ll discuss important topics and case study information with other participants, ask questions of the instructor to deepen your understanding and application of the subject, and offer feedback via polls and other collaborative exercises.

Virtual breakout rooms create opportunities for small group work, and the virtual classroom platform chat, resource downloads and whiteboard sharing to ensure you get all that you need from the experience. In some classes, pre- and post-course knowledge checks will help you assess your understanding and readiness to apply it to your work.
