Some of the numerous reasons to choose the online route include:
- Self-paced learning
- Variety of programs
- Flexible scheduling
- Cost savings
- No books
They Did It
A few of our many online graduates reflected on their experience. Here’s what they had to say:
Natalee Leslie, Administrative Medical Specialist and Medical Billing and Coding graduate, said, “I’ve taken online courses before, and I feel like this prepared me more. In the program I took, they have you simulate a day in the life at a doctor’s office. I felt more prepared for that. The online course was very informative. Any time you had any questions, you could always email the instructors. They encouraged you to be in discussion groups and those discussion groups were really helpful.”
Katrina Rowan, Paralegal graduate, said, “I liked that I could obtain a certificate in a short amount of time — as opposed to a four-year degree. I didn’t know if I could commit to the classroom due to my husband’s work schedule and having two boys at home. The online option worked best for me.”
Katrina also cites the self-paced, six-month, user-friendly online platform as some of the reasons she chose that route. She also valued the course’s career developmental focus. “The program far exceeded my expectations,” she said. “I especially appreciated the initial focus on building your résumé, looking for a job and the different kinds of jobs to look for.”
