Why an Online Education?
When people talk about going back to school, most of us picture a brick building on a college campus. However, with all of the great advances in technology, online education has changed the traditional model by making education more accessible, more personalized, and more affordable than ever. So if you have friends or family thinking about going back to school, you might want to share a few of the facts below on why Career Step’s online education is a great option for them!
Flexibility is the name of the game with online education. With Career Step’s online programs, you don’t have to rearrange your life to fit into your school schedule. Students can study on their own schedule and at their own pace.
Whether you’re a morning person or a night owl, it doesn’t matter with online education. Career Step’s courses are accessible 24/7. You can dedicate a certain time each day to your studies or squeeze in a few hours of study time during your toddler’s nap. Our online courses give you the flexibility to personalize your study schedule and go at your own pace—something that can’t be achieved in a traditional classroom setting.
Let’s face it—despite our best laid plans, life happens! You might not have any plans to move in the near future, but sometimes our circumstances change and a move is required. Whether you’re moving across town or across the country, you don’t have to try and complete your program before you move or transfer to a new school afterward. Career Step’s online programs are designed to go wherever you go, so you can take all the time you need. Visiting a relative for an extended period of time? No problem! You can take school with you no matter where you go.
Online education can be more affordable than traditional education because you’re eliminating the overhead costs of classroom space, instructor time, etc. Most of Career Step’s courses cost less than $3,000 and are designed to get our students trained and ready for the workforce in as little as 3 months. Online education can also eliminate (or at least significantly decreases) transportation and childcare costs as well as the need to adjust work schedules to accommodate class schedules
