Computer Education Techniques courseware incorporates industry standard and consultancy derived content, augmented by the CETi knowledge base. The principles of adult learning are applied for interpreting and translating subject matter into performance objectives, narrative descriptions, and diagrams which explain. The courseware is designed to utilize a variety of presentation formats: text, diagrams, tables, examples, sample programs, and workshop. Industry standard textbooks are reviewed, updated, and extended for use in hybrid and specialized areas of information technology.

CETi applies these standards to its courseware:

1. Integrated student handout organized for sequential presentation with a title for each course module.
2. Copyright acknowledgment and bibliography which provides the sources of the student handout: commercial software company manuals, documentation and urls in the public domain, and industry standard textbooks.
3. Table of contents which contains the major topics and subtopics within a module and a complete course.
4. Performance objectives for each lesson of the student handout.
5. Subject matter headings and associated text:
Courseware_Standards  Combination of narrative explanations, commands, functions, and guidelines integrated with presentation slides for teaching the table of contents.
Courseware Standards  Tables, figures, and graphics specific to the course module.
Courseware Standards  Training aids which summarize information from the CETi student handout and commercial software company and open source purveyor documentation.
6. Demonstrations, examples, and walkthroughs which reinforce performance objectives.
7. Exercises and case studies for each course lesson.
8. Solutions to the walkthroughs, exercises, and case studies.
9. Review questions for the course handout for assessing mastery of subject matter and performance objectives.
10. An optional glossary and post course assessment based on the lesson plan, course handout, exercises, and training aids.
11. Index of topics with the associated chapter and page number from the course handout.
In conjunction with delivering instructor-led classroom instruction at the client location, courseware is organized for future utilization in web-enabled training environments.
