What makes us different?

The best content.

At DirectCourse, we partner with industry experts to create content based on the latest leading research. That means working with university centers supported by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research to write and refine our content. Our partners build every course plan with the guidance of their National Advisory Board and National Editorial Board, to ensure that best practices and the latest knowledge are at the center of everything we offer.

With you every step of the way.

We use our own learning management system, Elsevier Performance Manager, to make learning simple. With access to courses anytime, anywhere, users can learn at their own pace. For administrators, Elsevier Performance Manager makes it easy to track progress, assign lessons and customize content for every course, enabling organizations to meet compliance standards.
