Self-Paced Learning

Courses
These courses contain information that is consistent with the classroom learning portions of Viking’s instructor led training conducted at the Viking Training Facility in Caledonia, MI.  Attendance at a hands-on interactive training session is highly recommended to further understanding of system components and operation.

Assessments
If a certificate is desired for your records, it is necessary to complete the on-line assessment.  Upon scoring a minimum 65%, Viking will provide a certificate indicating the number of instructional contact minutes associated with the course. Each video course will contain a unique “assessment code” which will be entered on the assessment.
