As technology and the use of technology continue to evolve in our society, more and more students are opting to pursue their education online instead of attending classes at the ground campuses. Online education provides more flexibility and is ideal for individuals who cannot commit to a full-time academic schedule. If you are:
- Working part-time or full-time and would like to continue working while pursuing further education
- Needed at home or caring for a child or special needs family member
- Living in an area that makes commuting to class very difficult
... online training and distance education might be for you! Here are a few advantages to consider:
You receive the same education as students at the ground campus
Despite popular belief, online colleges can provide the same level education as traditional colleges. In fact, other than the delivery format, the education that you are receiving online is the same as what is taught in the classrooms.
Our online offering is part of Robertson College. For employers that are new to the idea of online training, this association might help them understand better the quality of your training.
You have greater control over your time
Because your course materials are available to you 24/7, you can log in at a time that is most convenient to you. Some students are early risers while others perform better in the evenings. With online training, you have greater control over your study times allowing you to be more efficient and effective with your time.
Save time and money
Not only will you have greater control of your time, you will also get to avoid lengthy commutes to and from the campus. Being stuck in traffic is no fun, so why not avoid that dilemma altogether and study in the comfort of your home? You will also save money - think of all the costs associated with driving including gas and parking.
