My government agency requires employees to take many training classes. In my case, approximately 16 required classes are offered only in the Washington, D.C. area (headquarters), but not in the Regional Offices. If these classes were offered via VTC, the saving to the government would total several thousand dollars per employee One class/trip to Washington, D.C. costs approximately $1,000. If that cost is multiplied by each employee/each class required at headquarters, VTC makes sense. The employees stationed at headquarters could attend the live presentation and the offices not in the area would watch it on television.
