You enjoy work that’s engaging and hands-on. You may think that in order to gain the skills and experience you need to work in a field like carpentry or plumbing, you’ll need to be available to attend classes on the school’s schedule. Fortunately, online programs exist for a variety of hands-on careers. Ashworth College can help prepare you to enter the field at your own pace.
How online learning works
Online learning allows you to gain knowledge in a way that’s convenient for you. Before you jump in to a career, you need the skills to help you succeed. Online learning makes getting an education more convenient. By studying online, you can learn when and where you want. Lessons are available 24/7 and can be completed on a computer, laptop, tablet, or phone. Studying at your own pace allows you to digest the information presented to you before testing or moving on to the next lesson.
Online learning also means you don’t have to adjust your work schedule or choose between a paycheck or advancing yourself. It’s also becoming increasingly more popular and outcomes of online learners are on par, if not better, than those who go to a physical school in some cases.
While online learning means you won’t meet classmates face-to-face, it doesn’t mean they don’t exist. Ashworth’s Student Community allows you to connect with students in your program and find support. There are also resources available to help you as you progress through your studies.
