By Career

There are many careers that require specialized knowledge and detailed training, and they are usually in highly technical fields like health care, computers or criminal justice. That is the reason many students opt for specialized career training rather than pursuing bachelor’s degrees. Career training programs, also known as career certificate training, are a great post-secondary education option for many people, especially those who do not feel typical 4-year colleges are right for them, for whatever reason.

 

A career certificate is earned by a scholar who completes career training in a specialized field. Most career training programs consists of several lessons that help students learn the ins and outs of the industry they are studying. These are the shortest post-secondary education option, often taking between 6 months to a year and half for students to complete. They are intended to lead learners directly into an exciting career upon graduating, which differs from a more general undergraduate degree that provides learners various career options and a less specific path.

 

Many students opt for our programs because they offer real value for money, as they learn essential computer skills that enables them to be effective and efficient in any environment.
