Instructor Guide

An Instructor Guide provides you with all that you need to teach the training course. It contains all the same instructional content as a Learning Guide, along with  the answers to the chapter review questions, timing suggestions to help you in delivering various sections of the course, and instructor presentation files that complement the guide.

The Instructor Guide format is new for ASCENT with the 2019 software release. As was previously done, you will no longer be receiving any additional downloaded pdf documents containing our Instructor Tools. All information is included in the Instructor Guide and you are no longer required to purchase a separate copy of the Learning Guide.
