Results. The adaptation of the pedagogical process through the use of interactive technologies in the teaching of students of the 1st and 2nd courses is aimed at the acquisition of professional competences, including practical skills. The requirements for which are determined by the standards of the federal State education standard.

Discussion. The basic principles and problems of remote technologies in the educational process have been formulated. The authors have highlighted problems that should help to define the location of integrated remote education technologies in the educational process of practical skills development.

Conclusions. The rapid introduction of distance learning allowed the training process to continue at an appropriate level and standardized approaches to study of all material. However, the acquisition of practical skills in a remote format is incomplete, which requires the study of the survival of students' knowledge and the use of additional simulation training in the educational process.
