DALLAS, Texas – WebCE was created in 1999 with the idea of using advances in technology to deliver worldwide many of the popular Continuing Education courses. Through WebCE’s innovative array of continuing education courseware, technology and services, corporations are able to significantly reduce the time and expenses associated with traditional seminars and training.

"We understand that time is money for professionals and that’s why we are dedicated to providing fast, inexpensive and high-quality training solutions," says WebCE CEO Gary Henkel. "In today's volatile marketplace, the ability to stay abreast of industry knowledge greatly impacts a professional’s success. Our self-paced instruction helps busy executives stay current while saving them time and money."

For almost a decade, professionals have successfully used WebCE products and services to increase professional knowledge and retain their state-approved licenses. Now, through WebCE, professionals can instantly select and order state-approved correspondence courses over the Internet at www.webce.com and start fulfilling continuing education requirements immediately. Courses can be completed in a single session or over a series of sessions as is convenient for the student. Once completed, the material remains available to the student for review at a later date. In addition, users can monitor the status of orders and even access secure training records, all via the Internet.

Once the curriculum has been completed, state-approved exams are administered online or using printed copies. WebCE will then grade and validate the results, forward a "Certificate Of Completion" to professionals who successfully complete the program and inform the appropriate state agencies.

WebCE's Internet courses are state-approved and are available nationwide. In states requiring that continuing education be delivered in classroom settings, WebCE can offer courses through pre-approved delivery partners.

Although WebCE expects use of its Internet-based solutions to grow rapidly, the company will continue to focus on both traditional and technology-based training. All of WebCE training materials and exams can be ordered as paper-based booklets. They are shipped within 24 hours and shipments can be tracked on the WebCE Web site through a real-time connection to UPS. Courses also are available in PDF file formats for those who want the speed of Internet access but prefer working from printed documents.

"We understand the realities our corporate clients face, especially since employees possess varying degrees of technical and Internet skills," said Henkel. "As a result, WebCE will continue to accommodate both leading edge and paper-based delivery methods."

"Self-improvement is not a one-time event but an ongoing process," added Henkel. "During every career, a professional’s training needs are constantly evolving. To address this issue, we created a full lifecycle education methodology."

For that reason, WebCE’s products and services are engineered to deliver a consistent look and feel to simplify pre-licensing, regulatory certification, personal productivity and internal product training requirements. This means that a licensed professional can focus on personal improvement, rather than spend time learning disparate training methods.
