What is Distance Learning
Distance education means instruction in which the instructor and student are separated
by distance and interact through the assistance of technology. Distance Learning
provides educational opportunities that are not limited to the time and space constraints
of traditional classes.
Online instructors utilize a wide variety of tools such as online lectures, assignments,
tests, discussion forums, and streaming video. Our online courses are offered online
through a course learning management system (CMS) called Blackboard Learn. Instructors
may also use additional software and websites, depending on the course. Details and
special requirements for each course can be found by clicking the CRN link on the
online Class Schedule Search web page.

"My experience in Allan Hancock College's Fire Academy was phenomenal. I received a top-notch education from experienced instructors who were dedicated to training the next generation of firefighters. The hands-on training we received in the college's state-of-the-art facility was an amazing opportunity and prepared me for my current job as a firefighter for the Atascadero department of fire and emergency services."
