Workforce Education: On-Line Distance Learning Opportunities
Are you self-motivated, self disciplined, an independent learner who communicates well in writing and is a good reader? Are you comfortable with the computer? And do you need a flexible learning schedule with the opportunity to learn anytime, anywhere? Then our distance learning courses may be right for you.
The course options below are available for those learners whose schedules do not allow them to take courses at a set time on a set day or days. These programs are available for learners who do not require in-person interaction among other students and with the instructor.
Some course offerings below are on-line instructor led with set start and end dates. Others are completely self-paced and self-study, and you can start and complete them at any time.
