Online Career Schools-Can You Really Get the Training You Need?
One of the most frequently asked questions about online career schools is “do you really get the training that you need for a new career?” The answer is “yes” if you pick the right online career school! There are some horror stories about online career training and being unable to get a job because the professional group affiliated with that profession did not “approve” the schools training. This scenario plays out when you choose a program whose coursework does not fulfill the requirements needed for certification.
Making Sure You Get What You Need
There are quite a few schools that offer online career training and many of them deliver as promised but there are some that do not. You must be careful when you are choosing a school. Here are some indicators that you are dealing with a school that can provide you with the training that is recognized by professional groups:
- Listing of certification bodies affiliated with a career
- Accredited school
- Better Business Bureau ratings
- Established school
- Responsive to questions
Some professions require certifications, some don’t, and some view professional certifications a nice plus. If you are interested in a career that requires certification, make sure you choose a program that qualify graduates to sit for certifying or licensure examinations upon completion.
If you are taking courses from an institution that is not accredited do your homework! Many find it is a waste of time and money. If your goal is to find a job, professional groups, organizations and regulatory bodies, either accept the curriculum provided in your training or they do not.
Better Business Bureau
The Better Business Bureau is a widely recognized, long established accreditor that ensures customers that your business follows honest and reliable business practices. Institutions that have a BBB rating of A+ display the highest standards of business ethics, truth in advertising, integrity, courtesy and customer service
Established is a positive indicator
A school that is established is far more likely to offer you the recognized training that you need to get started in your new career field.
The right school will have a long-proven history of providing quality education that has helped people just like yourself to find a job in their chosen career field.
