Digital Program Format:

A Revised Digital LOGTECH

The Institute for Defense & Business (IDB) is converting many of our upcoming, in-person programs to live, online programs. This digital transformation began in April as a response to the COVID-19 outbreak in an effort to deliver as many of our programs as possible to our clients in the current restrictive environment. Designed from our successful LOGTECH program, a fully digital eIDB: LOGTECH program has been developed to meet the demands of our clients. Now you can attend an updated eIDB: LOGTECH that would have taken place in-person in Chapel Hill and even receive your Certificate via our learning management system and video conferencing platforms. This asynchronous and live collaborative learning environment promises to be very rewarding and meet the high educational standards that IDB programs have always provided.

We look forward to continuing these online offerings long into the future, even after the current  crisis is behind us and in-person programs become available again.
