In the intervention group, 63 students received virtual training using university education system, and in the control group, 44 students received face to face training. In both of thegroups, the degree of learning was examined using a written test. A questionnaire was used in order to investigate satisfaction with the teaching method and attitude. The reliability of the researchermadeAttitude Measurement Questionnaire was confirmed using Cronbach’s alpha (0.89) and its validity was confirmed through content validity. The Data was analyzed using SPSS software, version16 and using T-tests. The significance level was set at 0.05. Results: The results showed that the two groups had a significant difference in terms of attitude (P<0.001). The students were alsomore satisfied with the virtual training (P<0.006). The rate oflearning between the students of virtual and face to face training groups didn’t show any significant difference (P<0.199). Conclusion: Students were more satisfied with the virtual trainingmethod and they had a positive attitude towards the virtual training, but the rate of learning was similar in both of the methods. Therefore, it is recommended to use the virtual training courses as complementary courses in the face to face training methods.
