The instructor-led HATS Distance Learning course provides an opportunity for you to learn HATS; through e-conference presentations (webinars) and by completing an extensive set of hands-on labs. Each day, the instructor will present technical content that demonstrates specific development techniques, including how to use IBM's RAD product for development, using the HATS Toolkit.

After the Web seminars, you will be given exercises focused on topics that were discussed in that day’s modules. Class times and contact information are listed when you select a location and register for a session.

The workshops and hands-on lab exercises associated with the daily Web seminars will take between 2 to 3 hours a day to complete. An instructor will be available for questions during that time. After completing the workshops, you will be ready to start building basic applications in HATS for initial projects and pilots in your shop.
