Become Hybrid and Online Training (HOT) Certified

Instructors have the opportunity to become certified to teach online and hybrid courses at Wilmington University. To become certified, instructors must complete HOT. 

HOT is a 3 three week online course and is typically offered once a month. Please note that it is not a self-paced course, so instructors will need to complete the weekly assignments within the published timelines.  Instructors will complete assignments and submit them entirely online, which will then be evaluated by the HOT instructor. If you have any questions about the HOT (Hybrid Online Training) course, please email
