  • Yes, You Can Earn Thousands More Each Year by Choosing Continuing Education!

    “Earn thousands this week, no experience necessary!”

    “Data Entry works, no skills needed, make $4,000 by Friday!”

    Who hasn’t seen one of these ads posted somewhere online or in an email? If you spend any sort of time on the Internet, you
    know these ads are everywhere. But like your Mom used to say, “if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.” And that’s
    right. There is no way to make an easy buck in the world anymore. Well, they never was a way to make easy money. But everyone
    loves money and wants more of it. So how can you earn thousands more per year? By continuing education!

    Continuing education is any learning that you do after High School. Your time spent in college was a form of continuing
    education because you did not have to go to school after you graduated. These days, continuing education tends to be
    education you receive after you college diploma. Record numbers of students are graduating from college each year. That is
    a great statistic; however, it also means that there are more people in the job market with backgrounds like yours.

    You will not receive huge pay for your first job, unless you are in a highly specialized field like computer programming or
    medicine. However, you work your way up to making more money after you gain experience. On the job experience takes time,
    but you can cut corners with continuing education.

    If you have some continuing education under your belt, you can easily prove to hiring managers why you are more qualified
    for promotions than someone who hasn’t taken additional classes after earning his degree.

    You also show you have more initiative and ambition, which goes a long way in getting that new promotion or job. It shows
    that you are willing to take on a lot of challenges and aren’t afraid of the unknown. These are strong characteristics of
    good upper-level managers and executives. That could be you someday.

    With continuing education comes the most coveted thing of all: more money. You could be earning thousands more per year that
    you do right now if you take the time to get more education and go for those jobs and promotions where you can prove your
    worth and make five, ten, twenty or thirty thousand more than you already make in a year. Just think of all you could do
    with that!

    So, even though there is not a way to really make thousands in a week (at least, not legally) you can find a way to make
    thousands more than you already are. You can be in any field you like, from business to design to medicine. It does not
    matter. All it really takes is some drive, determination, willingness and continued education. You could be on your way to
    making your first million soon, all by continuing your education now.
    And who doesn’t want to show up to work in that nice new car and step out in nice clothes? You know you do, so get started
    today!

  • Just What is Continuing Education?

    Although many people may think of preparing for the GED as continuing education, technically, it's not. Continuing education
    means progressing with your educational career after you've either received your high school diploma or you've received an
    alternative GED certificate.

    So what does continuing education include? Well, technical schools, college classes, and online classes to progress in your
    career are examples of forms of continuing education. These classes and programs are intended to help you continue your
    education after graduation.

    Technical schools were created specifically to help adults progress beyond high school. These schools have programs that
    help learners master the skills and technological expertise they need to secure good jobs. Also known as vocational
    education, technical schools can train you for jobs such as an auto mechanic, a bookkeeper, or a cosmetologist.

    Community colleges are a main source of continuing education classes. In addition to helping people work toward a degree,
    community colleges also offer programs such as nursing, respiratory therapy, and law enforcement. The community college
    environment is perfect for people who want to advance in their current job or move on to a better job.

    Many college campuses offer evening and Saturday classes just to make learning convenient for adult students. They also
    have classes you can take online so that you will be able to make time for learning. Continuing education offerings at
    these campuses range from complete programs to individual courses that can help you master new skills. Your local community
    college is a wonderful place to look when you're considering continuing education options.

    Naturally four-year colleges also offer continuing education classes. You can earn a degree at these colleges or simply
    take additional classes to help you progress in your career. Many professionals find that returning to college to get
    either a Bachelor's or Master's degree can really boost their career.

    In additional to classes for degrees, colleges offer specialized classes that can help you master certain skills. For
    instance, you can take classes that will help you learn specialized computer programs. You also can learn new skills and
    talents, such as how to create multimedia presentations. More employers these days are encouraging their employees to
    explore continuing education options. The more skills and talents you possess, the better chance you have of landing and
    keeping a good job.

    If you think you're too busy to take continuing education classes, think again. These days your options are practically
    limitless. Not only can you find traditional classes, you can take online classes, use interactive DVD and online programs
    to take a class, and even take teleclasses by watching your television. These new delivery methods make it easy for
    practically everyone to find a class that is convenient.

    To start your search for continuing education classes, first analyze your goals. Do you want to get a degree? Learn the
    latest technology? Advance in your career? Decide what you want to accomplish, and then research your options. The Internet
    contains a wealth of information about continuing education opportunities. With just a little effort, you're bound to find
    the right opportunity for you.

  • What is continuing education?

    Education is an important part of everyone’s life. Most people study for a limited period of time and then settle for jobs
    as per their qualification. When it comes to continuing education, there are very few people who give this important factor
    a thought.
    Continuing education is all about pursuing post secondary learning activities and programs. There are several degree and
    non-degree courses available these days for students who want to continue their education for various reasons.

    Here are some of the post secondary learning activities available for the aspirants, these days:

    a)    Degree credit courses by non-traditional students
    b)    Not-degree career training
    c)    Self-directed learning
    d)    Experimental learning
    e)    Workforce training
    f)    Formal personal enrichment courses

    If we talk about continuing education in general terms, it is equivalent to adult education. According to this term, the
    aspirant already has got education and wants to pursue it for attaining additional knowledge. Literacy, primary education,
    language programs and vocational training are not included here.

    Continuing education in developed countries like the United States means getting further education from a reputed college
    or university. This can be either through part time or full time depending upon the student’s will. The program is also
    known as extension school or university. Enrolling oneself in non-credit granting courses in the US also means continuing
    education. Community colleges offer these courses in US.

    In the year 1904, the University of Wisconsin pioneered academic institution in America. It offered continuing education
    program.

    Professionals can also look forward to continue their education in order to enhance their caliber. Professional continuing
    education can be defined as a learning process that results in obtaining a certificate by the certificate towards the end
    of the course. The certificate is a document signifying the attendance of the candidate at a course of instruction. There
    are several programs dedicated towards providing knowledge enhancement to professionals.

    These days, there are several ways to continue education. You can choose to sit at home and continue your studies via an
    online program. You can also go for education program via part time or full time course. Most people prefer taking help of
    distance education when it comes to continuing education. This is because they also want to work while studying.

    Deciding to continue education is prudent. One must think of expanding one’s knowledge irrespective of one’s age or position.
    Today, there is a great need of licensed education. This is because in many fields, the governing bodies prefer license, to
    provide a specific line of work.

    The main goal of these education programs is to provide a new horizon to provide a new horizon to professionals who want to
    add up to their knowledge and grab new opportunities coming their way. Several institutions and reputed colleges offline
    and online provide these courses to the aspirants.

    Continuing education is no more a rare objective. Students and even professionals look forward to purse new and enhanced
    course to add up to the knowledge to their line of work.


    Never Stop Learning with Continuing Education Courses

  • Never Stop Learning with Continuing Education Courses

    Has anyone ever told you that they are too old to go back to school and pursue continuing education? If so, you can tell
    them that they are full of baloney! A 93 year-young woman was recently in the news for finally graduating from college. She
    never gave up on her dream of continuing education and eventually succeeded in her goal, even though it took almost eighty
    years to do it.

    When interviewed by the media, she said that she was even thinking about going to graduate school (at 94 years old!) to
    earn her Master’s Degree in education. If that is not motivational to you, nothing is.

    The fact of the matter is that you are never too old to learn something new. Learning does not have to stop once you
    graduate high school or college: it should keep going until you move on from this life. If you do not use it, you lose it.
    That is the case for your brain as well. Pursue continuing education and find that you have the capacity to learn something
    new each day.

    So, if you are ready to get starting on your continuing education path, start now. Even if you have to start slow, that is
    better than doing nothing and letting your brain go to mush. Search on the World Wide Web for courses that interest you.
    They can be ones that require very little of your time, money and energy. However, if it will get you interested in learning,
    it will be worth it.

    Or, you can call your local college or university to find out more about the selection of continuing education courses they
    offer each month. Most colleges have a vast selection of programs that you can choose from that will interest you and
    provide you with the educational stimulation your brain craves. You can even learn a new hobby like writing, genealogy or
    painting!

    You can even go all out and pursue your continuing education degree. Colleges have many flexible degree options these days:
    from online courses to evening classes to classes that meet on the weekends. If you can dream it, there is probably an
    Associates, Bachelors or Master’s degree program that will fit into your schedule and lifestyle.

    So get up and get started today. There are no more excuses and once you get started, you will find that education can be an
    amazing thing and that you have so much more potential and intelligence than you ever thought possible.

    Make the first step by calling a friend or relative and tell them of your plans. If you tell someone else, they can make
    you accountable and make sure you follow through with your plans. You cannot have excuses if they won’t let you off the hook.

    Believe it; you will thank them in the end. You will forget what your life was like without constant education and
    coursework. And your life will be happier and richer because of continuing education.

    Moms and Continuing Education

  • Moms and Continuing Education

    Are you a stay-at-home mom? If so, you may want to consider the many continuing education options. While your children are
    at school or napping, you can take an online class or two. You can even work toward a college degree from home.

    Many people don't realize how many options there are when it comes to continuing education. In addition to the traditional
    classroom settings, most colleges offer a variety of online classes that are perfect for stay-at-home moms.

    Online classes are one of the great things about continuing education. These classes usually consist of lectures posted
    once or twice a week, along with assignments and tests. You can read the lectures as your schedule permits during the week.
    Then you can submit your assignments to your instructor online as you complete them. The tests are usually timed and many
    are created so they're open book.

    If you aren't sure what you'd like to major in, you can look through the college catalogs online. Most four-year colleges
    and community colleges offer a lot of continuing education options. If you still have questions, you can call the college
    for additional information. They'll be able to help you decide how you can achieve your educational goals.

    If money is stopping you from pursuing continuing education, ask the college about scholarships and other tuition help.
    Most colleges have people on staff who can work with you to find scholarship money or loans that can help you pay for the
    education you want. Many organizations have scholarships designed to encourage women to attend college. Check around. You
    may be surprised at what's available.

    To avoiding becoming overwhelmed or discouraged as you pursue your continuing education goals, set a realistic schedule for
    yourself. You may decide that one class a semester is all you can handle. That's fine. It may take a few extra years, but
    you can get through college this way. The important thing is that you stick with it.

    Aren't sure you want to go for a degree? Colleges also offer other continuing education options. Perhaps you're interested
    in creative writing. You could take an online course that would help you perfect your craft.

    Other continuing education options exist in addition to colleges. For instance, some community centers are now offering
    online classes you can take. If you want to get out of the house, some of these centers even offer child care while you
    take the classes.

    Technical schools also offer online classes. These schools have many continuing education options. Take a look at their
    course catalogs. You may be surprised what you can learn while still staying at home with your children.

    If you don't have your high school diploma, you can study for the GED at home as well. Many companies and websites offer
    preparation programs that can really help you with the test. You'll get to practice for all five sections of the
    test--reading, writing, math, science, and social studies.

    Continuing education offers you many opportunities. These days, most traditional and online classes and programs are
    designed to make learning both interesting and fun.

  • Learn Vital Work Skills the Fun and Easy Way through Continued Education



    Do you like learning? Sure, you do, depending on the situation. You hated High School because your teachers constantly told
    you that you needed to live up to your potential and study subjects that held no interest to you.

    So once your High School years were over, the last thing you wanted to do was go to more school. Instead, you went to work
    to make a living. However, now it is a few years later and you are finding that it is hard to find good jobs that pay well.
    You see your friends who went to college get jobs that pay tens of thousands of dollars more than you receive a year and
    you are starting to think that you made the wrong choice.

    Well, it is never too late to start continuing your education. Yes, even you. You can find a continuing education program
    that will not take up a ton of your precious family or fun time and in a few months you will be on your way to earning more
    money and finally getting the respect you know you deserve.

    You may be surprised to find out that continuing education can be fun and rewarding at the same time. You can take courses
    that are tailored to your interests and needs instead of spending time learning stuff you do not care about.

    For example, many community colleges offer continuing education courses for vocational trades like auto mechanics, computer
    aided drafting, carpentry, or construction. Or you can learn office trades like administrative work, data entry or medical
    billing. Or (yes, there are that many choices!) you can pursue a medical assisting or nursing career that will not take
    forever to complete.

    The strangest thing to you may turn out to be that you actually enjoy your continuing education. You may find out that you
    love to learn and studying something you enjoy is the ticket to having a more successful and rewarding life.

    No, you are not too old to do it. Even if you are in your thirties or forties, you can pursue continuing education while
    working it in to your family and work life. Continuing education programs strive to work with adults who decide to go back
    to school. They know that it is beneficial to everyone when people receive an education. Society is upgraded in the world
    when more people are educated. It means fewer people on government assistance programs and fewer people on welfare.

    So think about continuing education to improve your life. You can learn vital work skills and will eventually find that it
    can be fun and interesting at the same time. Who knows, maybe you will go back to your high school graduation and tell your
    former teachers about your successes and then hear them say how they knew you had potential, you just needed to find your
    niche. You rolled your eyes when they said it in high school, but now you will take their words to heart.

    Find your niche now!

  • Learn How to Paint, Draw or Write Like a Pro with Continuing Education Classes

    Have you ever wanted to be an artist? Most of us have at one point of our lives or another. However, in school, the focus
    was more on reading, writing and arithmetic instead of honing our artistic or musical skills. Now that you are an adult and
    can make your own decisions, you’d like to try and learn these things and take up a new hobby. But how? Do you read a book
    or ask your friend who paints? Well, you can, but it won’t help you get the know-how that taking a continuing education
    course can give you.

    Continuing education courses can be anything from an accredited degree program (one where you earn a degree to use in your
    career at the end) to a simple day-long course at the local community college. However, it’s those simple courses that can
    give the students amazing experience in areas they never had a chance to learn about previously.
    A student can take painting classes, learn to sew or knit, learn to arrange flowers or research your family tree-all by
    taking a few courses for a few weeks. You can learn how to create the next big piece of artwork or sew your daughter’s
    wedding dress. Or, you can do something simple. Continuing education courses have something for everyone.

    Because the topics can range so widely, these continuing education courses are a great way for retirees to keep their minds
    sharp in their senior years. It also gives them a way to meet people with similar backgrounds and interests.

    self-confidence, self-esteem and general happiness in your life.

    Where can you find continuing education courses like these? Well, first start by calling your local community college or
    recreation center. Nearly ever town or city has at least one and they are sure to offer a few each month that will serve
    your interests.

    If you can’t find continuing education courses at your local community college, head online. Search on your favorite search
    engine for continuing education courses in your city or region. You are sure to find a great selection to choose from,
    probably in places you weren’t aware of before. Then, all you have to do is register, attend class and let your mind soak
    up the new information. It can be that easy!

  • Continued Education.....A Fun Way to Keep Your Mind Active After Retirement

    You have been a hard and dedicated worker your whole life. You worked with your family on the farm or in the family business
    and then moved on to your career and your own family. In fact, you have worked for so long that it is all you have really
    known.

    You have dreamed of the day when you could hang up your working boots and retire to a life of leisure and possibly travel
    the world with your spouse. However, you have been retired for awhile now and the traveling thing is fun, but tiring. And
    you cannot sit around the house and just watch soap operas and fishing shows all day.

    In short, you want mind stimulation and you would really like to meet new people while you are at it. How can you do that
    without taking up gambling or playing bridge every day in the park? Well, the best way to do that is by signing up for some
    continuing education classes.

    Continuing education classes can help keep your mind sharp and help you learn a new hobby or subject all the while meeting
    new people who share the same interests. Many community colleges, recreation centers and universities offer a wide variety
    of continuing education courses throughout the year.

    The easiest way to find these classes is to call up the colleges and recreation centers in your area to find out more about
    their upcoming class offerings and how you can register. For example, you can take a class to learn how to make jewelry,
    learn how to sew or knit, learn how to throw pottery or write the next great American novel.

    Or, you can take more of an education type course like a Spanish language class or a literature course. The choices are
    only limited by your imagination and drive to learn.

    The best part, you will probably find like-minded people in your courses that you can become friends with. More than
    likely, they are probably in the same boat as you and are looking for a way to occupy their time in retirement. You can
    form a friendship with these people and build new relationships. And who does not like having a lot of friends and
    acquaintances?

    The most important thing, it helps you continue to feel like you are doing something productive. You have spent the
    majority of your life doing things for others: your parents, your spouse, your children and your employers. Now it is your
    time to take up a hobby that you have always wanted to try but did not have the time for. Why not! You have worked hard your
    whole life and completely deserve this time.

    So pick up the phone and find out more about the upcoming courses in your area. By this time next week, you could be
    creating the next blockbuster novel or painting a masterpiece that will eventually land in a famous museum. If you dream
    it, it is possible and continuing education can be the missing piece to make that happen.

  • How Continuing Education Can Brighten Your Future

    The phrase "continuing education" means different things to different people. For some, it means returning to the classroom
    to receive their GED. For others, it means returning to college to work toward a graduate degree. Whatever the phrase means
    to you, it's worth your time to consider the possibilities.

    Technology has made learning so much easier than what you may remember. You now can take classes from your home using your
    computer. You also can take classes at many local community centers. As more options appear, more people are taking advantage
    of continuing education as a way to brighten their career future.

    Consider, for starters, the GED. This test enables people who didn't pass high school to receive a certificate that is equal
    to a high school diploma. We all know high school graduates earn more than non-graduates. These days, people seeking to
    receive their GED have many online options. You can take practice tests and preparation classes at home on your schedule to
    help you prepare for the test.

    Interested in other continuing education options? Many technical schools exist that can help you learn a trade or a skill.
    For instance, you can learn how to repair cars, appliances, heaters, and air conditioners. You can learn a skill, such as
    cosmetology, bookkeeping, or carpentry.  Most cities have an assortment of technical schools where you can learn the skills
    you need to make big changes in your career and life.

    Thinking about going to college? Many colleges offer two-year programs in fields such as nursing or law enforcement. You
    can take classes at local campuses or online. The community colleges are designed to help adults with their continuing
    education needs. Check with you local community college to see what programs they offer.

    Want to attend college and get your Bachelor's degree? Most colleges now offer many online options so you can take classes
    at a time that's convenient for you. Even when you have to go to the campus to take a course, you can usually find classes
    offered in the evenings and on Saturdays. Continuing education can really help you succeed, and colleges are working to make
    it a possibility for many adults.

    If you work full-time, finding time for continuing education options may be difficult. Also, you should realize that it may
    take you a few years to get your degree. Don't get discouraged. Keep in mind that you'll be so much better off when you
    receive your degree. College graduates not only have more job opportunities than high school graduates, they also earn
    significantly more money.

    Visit your local college, either online or in person, and discover what they offer in the way of continuing education. In
    addition, ask about tuition assistance. Many people qualify for loans or scholarships, so be certain to ask.
    Although getting a college degree may take time, in the long run, it's well worth the effort. Don't rush yourself. Take one
    or two classes each semester, and before you know it, you'll have your diploma.

  • Continuing Education and a High School Diploma

    It happens all the time. A young person drops out of high school, and at first, doesn't regret the decision. But as the
    years go by and more and more people progress into better paying jobs, this person feels left behind. Continuing education
    lets you make up for lost time.

    Consider these facts. People who do not have a high school diploma are more likely to be unemployed. That's not surprising
    since many jobs these days require that you've graduated high school. By exploring continuing education options and receiving
    your diploma or passing the GED, you'll not only earn more money, you also will have more job opportunities.

    So where should you start? Well, if you're only a few classes short of graduating, you can take these classes to make up for
    what you missed. Many cities and school districts offer continuing education classes that can help you make up missed classes
    in a very short time. Start by contacting the high school you attended. Get a copy of your transcript and find out what you
    need to do in order to receive your diploma.

    Another option used by many people is the GED. The GED, which stands for General Educational Development, is a five-part
    test administered to verify that you have high-school level academic skills. The tests include Social Studies, Writing,
    Reading, Mathematics, and Science. When many people think of continuing education, they think of the GED. For this reason,
    you can find many resources to help you pass this test.

    To prepare for the GED, you can take preparation classes, either online or in person. You also can take telecourses, courses
    by mail, or use preparation books and videos. The GED has one of the most diverse continuing education offerings, with many
    options available in most major cities.

    If you want to go beyond high school and are curious about continuing education options, some colleges offer programs where
    you can finish high school while at the same time taking some college classes. Many community colleges offer these programs.
    Contact your local campus and find out what the requirements are.

    When it comes to continuing education choices, you need to decide what works best for you. What can you fit into your
    schedule? How best do you learn? You don't want to get discouraged and give up. Many people find it difficult to master
    some of the material necessary to pass the GED. You many find it is easier to learn this material if you take a traditional
    face-to-face class with an instructor. Not only will you be able to ask questions, but many people find it is easier to
    learn when they are surrounded by other students.

    The main point of continuing education is to help you have a better, more fulfilled life. To do that, you need to make a
    commitment to yourself and your future. The opportunities are out there. You just need to make up your mind to go after
    them.

  • Continuing Education and Your Career

    Do you ever feel like your career has stalled out? Do you see other people getting promoted while you're always passed by?
    Maybe continuing education can help you jump-start your career. By taking additional courses and investing time and energy
    in your skills, you can show your employer how serious you are about your future.

    One of the wonderful things about continuing education is that everyone can profit from it. Learning additional skills and
    mastering new knowledge helps everyone. Employees who feel left behind in their careers can especially profit from learning
    skills that will make them infinitely more "promotable." Upper management often looks at continuing education classes as a
    sign that the employee is interested in his or her future.

    So if you want to get your career moving, consider your continuing education options. First, analyze the state of your
    career. What goals do you have for yourself? What do you hope to achieve during the next year and the next five years? Is
    your current employer your dream job or do you hope to develop skills that will enable you to move to the job you really
    want? What skills and training do you feel you're missing?

    Make a list of what you want to accomplish in your career. Then look at how learning additional skills can help you
    accomplish these goals. Continuing education encompasses a great many topics. You can learn almost any skill that you
    need in the workplace by pursuing continuing education options.

    If you're comfortable doing so, talk to your manager about continuing education classes. Many companies actively encourage
    their employees to learn new skills. Moreover, many companies will pay all or part of the cost of classes. Sit with your
    manager and decide what classes will most help you progress in your career.

    If you would rather not ask your employer about continuing education, then study the training that successful people in
    your field have. Do they have advanced degrees? If so, then you can return to college. Are their technical skills stronger
    or more diverse? You can put together a list of the skills you need to develop.

    Once you've decided which classes will benefit your career, research your continuing education options. In addition to
    college classes, you can take many classes online. You'll be able to fit in classes around your busy work schedule. Not
    only can you find a variety of classes online, you'll also find a variety of prices as well. Look around until you find a
    program that fits your budget.

    In addition to online classes, many training programs offer DVDs and CDs. Some people use the time while they are stuck in
    traffic to learn a new skill. Several programs are available on CD that you can listen to while you drive. These programs
    can help you with people skills such as public speaking.

    With a little research, you can find lots of continuing education offerings to help you progress in your career. Take the
    time necessary to map out a plan, and then make it happen. Your future is in your control. Take charge and find the
    training you need.

    Continue Your Education for Nothing!

  • Continue Your Education for Nothing!

    You have thought about continuing education for awhile-either taking a few classes on web design at the local college or
    going for the whole shebang and getting a Master’s degree. However, you cannot imagine going for it and putting out the
    money for the tuition. Let’s face it: costs of continuing education are rising all of the time and it’s hard to keep up
    with the costs and face your daily bills.

    However, if you currently work for a company, there may be a way to get continuing education and get paid for it! It’s
    called tuition reimbursement and many companies know they must offer it to keep up in their respective industries and
    attract (and retain) the best people for their companies.

    Tuition reimbursement usually involves working for the company for a period of time first: either six months or a year
    before you’ll qualify. Then, after you meet their initial qualifications, you can be reimbursed for the classes you take
    to advance your knowledge for your company.

    For example, if you currently work in the marketing field, you can take classes in graphic design or get a Master’s of
    Business Administration and your company will recognize that the knowledge you have gained in this position will transfer
    to your daily work. Then, once you complete the coursework with the satisfactory grades (usually an A or B,) they will cut you a check to pay for the tuition and books for the course or courses.


    However, if you work in the nursing field, it is highly unlikely that your employer will reimburse you for taking web
    design courses or art classes unless it somehow fits in with your job. They want to get the benefit from paying for you
    to go to school. Web design or marketing classes do not really fit in with your role as a nurse. But if you take courses
    to receive your Registered Nurse designation, they would most definitely want to pay for that.

    The best part of tuition reimbursement? The knowledge you gain from pursuing it. You can take the courses and get the
    education and help your current employer all while getting paid to do your current job. However, if for whatever reason
    you decide to move on, they can’t take the knowledge you gained from those courses away from you. You can take that to
    your next job and receive a higher salary or position all the while knowing you received the extra education for free.

    Talk to your Human Resources director about the continuing education options at your company. He or she will be able to
    clue you in the rules and let you know what the process is to getting reimbursed for your costs. All companies have
    different sorts of policies when it comes to that.

    Take the bull by the horns and get some continuing education for free with tuition reimbursement. You brain, your future
    and your employer will most definitely thank you.

    Break Through the Glass Ceiling with Continuing Education

  • Break Through the Glass Ceiling with Continuing Education

    In today’s corporate world, you either have the goods or you don’t. You have Bachelor’s degree (or two) from a fine
    institution and were always told that it was the key to your success. However, times are changing and the majority of your
    colleagues have a Bachelor’s degree. When it comes time for that promotion, how will you set yourself apart from the pack?

    You can set yourself apart from your colleagues with continuing education. Continuing education is any sort of learning
    that helps you advance and learn more than you did previously. This could be something as simple as taking a few courses
    at your local college to advance your computer skills to going for a Master’s degree in your field.

    You may be wondering if it will be worth the extra costs to pursue continuing education. In the end it will. Let’s say you
    spend upwards of $10,000 on an advanced degree or continuing education certificate program. That’s $10,000 that you couldn’t
    spend on something else. However, if your company has a tuition reimbursement program that money can be given back to you
    and you would have a leg up on a raise and promotion. Or, it they don’t have a program, you could still pay for it out of
    your own pocket and be more likely get that raise and promotion. That raise could be enough to cover the costs of your
    tuition in just a few months. Then you’d be more likely for future raises and promotions that you wouldn’t have been considered
    for earlier.

    If you are a woman, it also helps you prove that you are better for a promotion than a male counterpart. Women still make
    less on average than men. If you are vying with a man for the same position, it is hard to make the case of why you are
    better for the job. But, if you have some continuing education under your belt, it makes it easier to prove. And you’d
    probably end up with the bigger salary too.

    Continuing education also shows that you are committed to increasing your skill set. Your ambition will shine through along
    with the added knowledge you receive from the courses. That is very appealing to executives looking for people to fill the
    upper ranks at companies.

    It is easy to see why you should take the plunge and go with continuing education. You advance your skill set, gain
    confidence and show how ambitious you really are. You also show your superiors how willing you are to take on new
    challenges without being told to do so.

    So, take the plunge and break through that glass ceiling. Start your research today on continuing education opportunities
    and begin to advance your career in ways that you never thought possible. Who knows, by the end of your career, you could
    be the CEO! That would not have been possible without finding a way to have continuing education.

  • Are There Benefits to Offering Tuition Reimbursement To Employees Continuing Education?

    As the costs of college continue to rise, so do the debt loads of graduating students. Students are constantly told that they
    need to pursue an advanced degree to make it in the world, but the amount of government funded loans and scholarship awards
    is decreasing each year. It is true, students do need continuing education to advance in the business world, but how can
    they do so without breaking the bank?

    Well, that’s where you come in. If you do not already have one, you should really look in to starting a tuition reimbursement
    program at your company. Large and forward thinking companies know that they need to be competitive in today’s tight job
    market to attract and retain the best and brightest employees. Tuition reimbursement programs are one way they can do this.

    Tuition reimbursement programs, if you are not familiar, work like this. Your employees work for your for a certain period
    of time before they become eligible for this program-usually somewhere around six months to one year. Once they have become
    eligible, they can submit the grades they receive from the coursework and you in turn cut them a check to cover the tuition
    and expenses. It really is that easy.

    However, you do not have to cover expenses for someone who is not studying in a field that will benefit your business. If
    you are an insurance company, you do not have to reimburse someone who is going into art, unless that person will become
    your web or graphic designer once he or she graduates. Remember, continuing education that you reimburse should benefit
    your company too. You take advantage of the new knowledge they have acquired to increase the brain bank at your company.

    Many workers say that tuition reimbursement programs are a big draw for potential employers. In fact, many students even
    say that is one of the biggest things they look for in employers when comparing job offers. Those are the employees you
    want to attract: they are clearly ambitious, smart and are looking to continuing education to increase their knowledge and
    worth to their field and company.

    You may wonder what happens if one of your employees takes the money from your tuition reimbursement program to obtain a
    continuing education degree and then quits for a better job offer. Well, most companies have a clause in their tuition
    reimbursement agreements for this sort of thing. They will require that students who are reimbursed for their continuing
    education expenses continue to work for the company for a period of time after completion. If they bolt out early, they can
    be required to pay back the money to the company. A fair trade off, no?

    So, it is in your best interest to look in to ways to increase your company’s competitive stance in the job market. Start a
    tuition reimbursement today and begin to see the quality of your job applicants increase almost immediately. It is a
    win-win situation for everyone involved.

  • Use Your Skills to Help Others... Teach Continuing Education


    Some people say you are a smart-alek. Other people swear by your knowledge and continually ask you to share your knowledge.
    You like teaching and helping others, so why not let them in on what you know?

    You never really did have an interest in becoming a teacher, but as you get older and older and your knowledge in your
    chosen field continues to grow, you are starting to feel the need to teach others about what you know and how they can
    become experts in the field like you are.

    No matter what your field, your knowledge can be important to others who want to know more about it. But you do not have to
    start teaching college courses or go back to school to earn a teaching certificate to start sharing what you know with others.
    Instead, look into teaching some continuing education courses to share your wealth of knowledge with others. Continuing
    education courses are a great way for teachers to share what they know with students who are generally interested in the
    subject matter.

    College and universities that offer continuing education programs are also eager to have you! They are constantly looking
    for people to teach about popular topics and even some not-so-popular ones. What they want to see if that you are enthusiastic
    about your subject matter and that you really know what you are talking about.

    You do not necessarily have to have an advanced degree to teach continuing education courses. Instead, the best thing to
    have is experience and respect in the industry. Examples of professions that are constantly in demand for continuing
    education courses are things like art, photography, fashion design and writing.

    You will have to commit to teaching the class for an extended period of time in order to be hired for a teaching position.
    You will also have to come up with lesson plans to show to the continuing education coordinator before the class starts so
    they will know you are serious about the class and teaching others about what you know.

    So how can you find out about opportunities? The best way is to find out where continuing education courses are held in
    your community and ask if your services could be used in an upcoming course. If so, ask them how you could go about starting
    a class of your own. Most coordinators will be delighted to have you. If they are not delighted, simply move on and find a
    program that is interested in your unique skill set.

    Do not keep your knowledge to yourself. Teach it to others in a continuing education course and help those students learn
    more and become a better person in the field, just like you. They will get the satisfaction from having the knowledge and
    you will feel good about helping people learn about themselves and the subject matter you love so dearly. There really is
    no better feeling than helping someone learn something they did not know before.

  • Continuing Education and Languages, Learn in your Spare Time!


    You are taking the plunge and are planning the trip of a lifetime across South America. You plan to visit each country for
    an extended period of time and see the sights and sounds like that of a local. One problem. And it is a big one: you cannot
    speak Spanish and know you will need to know at least a little bit before you
    go.

    Thankfully, you still have several months before your trip starts, so you can try to learn some Spanish before heading on
    your trip. However, you are not sure how to go about learning the language. You see the advertisements on televisions for
    the books and CD-ROM sets that claim to teach you the language in just a few days. You are more than skeptical.

    Instead, you decide that taking a course with a native speaker would probably be the best bet. But where can you find these
    types of courses without enrolling in an actual Spanish language degree program? You are most likely to find programs like
    this for people just like you in continuing education programs.

    Continuing education programs that have language courses are more tailored to the adult learner who wants to learn the
    practical part of the language. The people who take these classes are more than likely using it for business purposes or
    for recreational purposes. They need to know the phrases and need to practice conversation. Continuing education classes
    like this are great for that.

    How can you find continuing education courses where you can learn all the important parts of the language in the shortest
    amount of time? Well, most colleges and universities offer language courses for adult learners that do not involve enrolling
    in a degree program. To find out more about these types of courses, call your local college and university and speak to an enrollment specialist
    about the registration process, the class times and what you can expect to learn in the class.

    Most times, these classes are led by native speakers who can provide the much needed practice to perfect your accent and
    comprehension of the language. These courses are usually offered in a beginner, intermediate and advanced level that allows
    people to learn at their own pace. Students can also retake courses if they choose to perfect something they did not feel
    like they mastered previously.

    Some colleges and universities also offer courses in other languages like Arabic, French, Italian and German, mostly
    depending on what part of the country you live in and your interests. Arabic language courses have increased in popularity
    in the years since 9/11 and will most likely continue to rise in popularity as refugees continue to come to this country.

    On the flip side, continuing education courses are also offered to non-English speakers who have recently come to this
    country. These immigrants want to learn the language and continuing education courses like this provide the best format
    for them to do so.

    So say “hola” to continuing education and learn enough Spanish to spend your vacation like a local.


    Do You Really Need Continuing Education to Get Ahead?

  • Do You Really Need Continuing Education to Get Ahead?

    You have heard of all the promises that your guidance counselors and teachers have made talking about what will happen once
    you get a college education. The way they make it seem, money will be falling at your feet and you will achieve all of your
    wildest dreams.

    Is that an exaggeration? Sure, of course it is. However, you will find more happiness and achieve more of your life and
    financial goals if you pursue continuing education than if you simply start working after you graduate from high school.
    For starters, your overall life earnings increase dramatically after you graduate with a college degree. High school diplomas
    barely mean anything anymore and your chances of rising the ranks within good companies are severely limited if that is all
    you have.

    Bachelor’s degrees are the least amount of continuing education you will need to really compete in the working world. You
    will make a ton more money and have more job opportunities than with only a high school diploma. But the problem now is that
    more and more people have Bachelor’s degrees and they are becoming more like High School Diplomas.
    To really get ahead and find the jobs with the best responsibilities and pay, you must have continuing education that goes
    beyond the four year degree. Instead, you must earn a Master’s degree.

    A Master’s degree shows that you are committed to not only pursuing better jobs, but that you are motivated enough to keep
    going to school when it really isn’t required anymore. Master’s degree are especially helpful in fields where it can
    distinguish you from the crowd and show company hiring managers that you are willing to go the extra mile and distance
    yourself from the pack. Master’s degrees are great continuing education tools because you gain very specialized knowledge
    in your chosen field and become an expert in your field.

    If you don’t want to pursue a Master’s degree after your Bachelor’s degree, think about continuing education in a certificate
    program. Many college offer certificates in a wide variety of specializations like web design, graphic design, marketing and
    management. Make sure you pursue something that really interests you when you decide to continue your education. You will be
    more likely to stick with it and actually retain the information that you learn in your coursework.

    Money is also an important factor when deciding if continuing education is right for you. If you know that what you are
    studying will help you in your job and help you make money, it is worth the time and effort you put in to studying and going
    for the gold.

    Just remember, continuing education is worth it when you make it worthwhile for yourself. Follow your heart and the money
    will follow and you will be happier with your place in life and your career in the end. Do not let anyone else decide what
    you should study. You only have one life, live the best one you possibly can. Continuing education can be your ticket!

  • Considering Continuing Education? Bachelor's Degrees Fast Becoming The New High School Diploma


    When you were younger, the emphasis was always on going to a four year college or university and earning that Bachelor’s
    degree in your chosen field. That was your ticket, they said, to getting a good job and making a good salary along with that
    good job.

    Bachelor’s degrees are still important, but are becoming more and more common as record numbers of students decide to pursue
    their continuing education opportunities. You definitely need one to get any sort of good job (most of the time) but the really
    good job opportunities go to those who take the time to pursue continuing education past the Bachelor’s degree.

    Workers who earn a Master’s degree or higher will earn an average of six times more than someone who only receive a High
    School diploma. People in high level executive and CEO positions in companies usually all have some sort of advanced degree
    like a Master’s of Science or an MBA.

    Many hiring managers will automatically be drawn to those people who have more continuing education on their résumés than
    those people who only have a Bachelor’s because they know it takes ambition and commitment to pursue continuing education
    like this. You will be able to command a higher salary, better benefits and job responsibilities if you have a Master’s
    degree or higher. This can be especially helpful for women who have traditionally been looked over for positions that have
    gone to men in the past.

    So yes, it is definitely safe to assume and say that Bachelor’s Degrees are the new version of the High School Diploma. You
    need one to get a decent job that pays okay. However, the Master’s degree is the new Bachelor’s degree. If you have one of
    those, you are more likely to get the promotions and the money that comes along with it.

    This said, there are many Master’s programs that will allow you to keep working in your current position while taking
    classes. Students of the past had to drop out of the working world in order to get their degrees and this meant lost wages.
    That is why many people didn’t choose to earn Master’s degrees unless they started on them directly after graduating with a
    Bachelor’s.

    Colleges then realized they could have a ton more students if they would simply offer more flexible programs and classes.
    Now, you can take classes anywhere in the world and turn in your homework each day with the other students in your class.
    Or, if online classes are not your thing, you can find Master’s degree programs where you can take your classes after work
    in the evenings or on the weekends. An Executive MBA program is even designed to meet the demands of busy professionals.
    These Executive MBA programs continue to be a popular choice for workers across the world.

    There really are no limits to what you do when you pursue continuing education and a Master’s degree. 
    Your overall life improves and of course, you can make more money.

    Is Continuing Education Worth the Money?

  • Is Continuing Education Worth the Money?

    So you have decided that it would probably be a good choice to pursue some sort of continuing education. You have not decided
    if you are going to take just a few courses or pursue an all-out degree soon. The one thing you do know for sure is that it
    will cost you money in your already tight budget.

    Sure, you understand that continuing education is important for everyone, however, you still are not sure if it is worth the
    extra money you put out to pay for it. Well, it is. No matter what, the money you put toward your continuing education will
    come back to you tenfold.

    How will your monetary investment come back to you? Well, it could be in a variety of ways: you could receive tuition
    reimbursement from your employer, you could earn a promotion with a pay increase, you could find a higher paying job or you
    could simply have the personal satisfaction that comes with pursuing education.

    Check with your company’s Human Resource department to see if your company offers a tuition reimbursement program. If they
    do, ask what the guidelines are to participating in this program. For instance, you may have to be pursing a degree in a
    certain field or you may need to have been employed there for a certain period of time before you will qualify.

    The best part? You continue to receive your paycheck and you are completely reimbursed from your company for your expenses.
    Of course, there is nothing better than getting something so valuable for free.

    Or, you could earn a promotion with a pay increase after you complete your continuing education program. Say you pursue a
    graphic design certificate program to help you in your job. Your boss may just be so impressed with your new skills that he
    will increase your salary and give you a job where you can use your newly acquired skills on a daily basis. However, make
    sure the pay increase is in line with the degree you have just received.

    Continuing education degrees also give you more bargaining chips when negotiating a new job offer. If you have a Master’s
    degree and the rest of the applicants only have a Bachelor’s, you obviously should be making more money for the job. You
    could make several thousand more for the same position than you would have without the degree. If you do the math, you will
    find that your monetary investment will pay for itself in just a period of months or a year or so.

    Finally, you could find the best satisfaction with your continuing degree program by realizing that you are smart and were
    able to pursue your dreams. This will give you the kind of ego boost that nothing else can. You will feel smarter, more worldly
    and aware than you did before. And of course, you are all of those things because you went ahead and pursing continuing
    education on your own accord.

    Whatever your reasons, continuing education is always worth the investment. Paying for your education will always mean
    something when you are old and gray. A flat screen television won’t have the same feelings when you are ninety.

    You have decided to take the plunge and pursue continuing education to get ahead in the job field. You have weighed the
    pros and cons in your head over and over again and have decided that you want to break through the proverbial glass ceiling
    and take your career to heights you never thought possible.

    The problem? You cannot afford to take the time off from your work and family obligations to pursue your continuing education
    dreams. Classes at night are usually several hours long and you cannot take classes during the day.

    Colleges have heard your complaints and are beginning to offer degree programs for all types of life situations, including
    online continuing education programs. These programs are just like any other type of educational program and many are even
    accredited by the same accreditation boards that accredit more traditional degree programs.

    There are two types of online degree programs: continuing education programs from traditional colleges and universities to
    those that solely conduct their academic programs online. It is up to you to research the programs that interest you and
    learn if they are really into it to educate you or if they are just trying to take advantage of students interested in
    learning. Sadly, there are those types of people out in the world today looking to make a buck from your dreams. Make sure
    that does not happen to you and research your options before your make a commitment to the continuing education program with
    your hard earned dollars and cents.

    You can find these programs by simply searching on your favorite search engine. A recent search on Google netted over 100
    web pages dedicated to online degree programs and information to help students make decisions on these programs. There is
    no shortage of information out there for you, it is finding the legitimate ones that takes a bit of work.

    When you find a program that fits your interests, you should first check if they are accredited by a nationally recognized
    accreditation board. If the are, proceed. If they are not, well, move on. Your credits would not be worth much more than a
    piece of paper. Actually, the piece of paper may be worth more.

    Once you find an accredited program, search the web to find information on student experiences. Look for the good, the bad
    and the ugly to help you make your choice. You can also look at the Better Business Bureau to see their reports on the
    college.

    Lastly, before you proceed with the program, speak to someone about the college, preferably on the phone. If they are not
    willing to speak to you on the phone regarding your interests, be wary of them.

    It may take a lot of leg work for you to find the continuing education program of your dreams. But in the end, you will
    find that all of the work and stress that comes along with choosing an online program is worth it in the end.


    Continuing Education for the Public Relations Professional

  • Continuing Education for the Public Relations Professional

    If you are employed, or are a student, in the public relations field, you are familiar with the trials and tribulations
    that go along with the job. You are the first department to be cut when company budgets are slashed and you rarely get the
    salaries you deserve.

    Contrary to most company’s beliefs, public relations serve a vital function in vibrant companies. Public relations professionals
    are the spokespeople for their companies and can make the difference in whether the company comes through unscathed during a
    crisis or whether the company suffers from permanent setbacks.

    Unfortunately, most companies give the title of Public Relations to junior staff members who have no idea how to interact
    with the media and can make a company look amateur without trying. True public relations professionals go through a vigorous
    continuing education program including earning advanced degrees and becoming accredited in public relations.

    Accreditation in public relations is a designation that signifies that a public relations professional is indeed a professional
    in the field and is able to take on any crisis that comes along. To earn accreditation, a public relations professional must
    have significant experience in the public relations field, have a portfolio of past work, take a comprehensive exam about
    the history of public relations and have an interview with accredited public relations professionals that critique each
    answer.

    When the public relations professional earns the accreditation designation, their work is far from over. They must adhere
    to a person and professional code of ethics along with completing a certain amount of continuing education courses per year.
    If they fail to do any part of this, the public relations professional can expect to lose their status and have the reputation
    of their company and professionalism questioned for a long time to come.

    If you are in the public relations field now, continue to gain experience and eventually look in to accreditation and
    continuing education to advance your experience and knowledge in the field. You will continue to raise the status of public
    relations in the corporate world and earn yourself respect in the process.

    If you are accredited, you can also expect to command a higher salary at your future positions than if you were not accredited.
    This is more than worth it to some professionals who want to make more money in their field without pursuing a Master’s
    degree.

    And if you are one of those people who do not believe that public relations serves a vital function in a company, take a
    moment to pursue some continuing education on the subject. You will be guaranteed to find that it takes a dedicated and
    ambitious person to pursue this career and your company would not be as great as it is without your marketing and public
    relations department.

    The moral of the story? Continuing education is important in any field, but especially in such a professional field like
    public relations. It keeps just anyone from claiming to be a public relations professional.
    Continuing Education for the Public Relations Professional

    If you are employed, or are a student, in the public relations field, you are familiar with the trials and tribulations
    that go along with the job. You are the first department to be cut when company budgets are slashed and you rarely get the
    salaries you deserve.

    Contrary to most company’s beliefs, public relations serve a vital function in vibrant companies. Public relations professionals
    are the spokespeople for their companies and can make the difference in whether the company comes through unscathed during a
    crisis or whether the company suffers from permanent setbacks.

    Unfortunately, most companies give the title of Public Relations to junior staff members who have no idea how to interact
    with the media and can make a company look amateur without trying. True public relations professionals go through a vigorous
    continuing education program including earning advanced degrees and becoming accredited in public relations.

    Accreditation in public relations is a designation that signifies that a public relations professional is indeed a professional
    in the field and is able to take on any crisis that comes along. To earn accreditation, a public relations professional must
    have significant experience in the public relations field, have a portfolio of past work, take a comprehensive exam about
    the history of public relations and have an interview with accredited public relations professionals that critique each
    answer.

    When the public relations professional earns the accreditation designation, their work is far from over. They must adhere
    to a person and professional code of ethics along with completing a certain amount of continuing education courses per year.
    If they fail to do any part of this, the public relations professional can expect to lose their status and have the reputation
    of their company and professionalism questioned for a long time to come.

    If you are in the public relations field now, continue to gain experience and eventually look in to accreditation and
    continuing education to advance your experience and knowledge in the field. You will continue to raise the status of public
    relations in the corporate world and earn yourself respect in the process.

    If you are accredited, you can also expect to command a higher salary at your future positions than if you were not accredited.
    This is more than worth it to some professionals who want to make more money in their field without pursuing a Master’s
    degree.

    And if you are one of those people who do not believe that public relations serves a vital function in a company, take a
    moment to pursue some continuing education on the subject. You will be guaranteed to find that it takes a dedicated and
    ambitious person to pursue this career and your company would not be as great as it is without your marketing and public
    relations department.

    The moral of the story? Continuing education is important in any field, but especially in such a professional field like
    public relations. It keeps just anyone from claiming to be a public relations professional.

  • Help Your Child Build Skills During the Summer Months with Continuing Education

    Summer is fully underway and your school-aged child is busy with his daily regimen of playing video games and eating chips
    all day while you go to work. Hard life huh? Well, you do not have to let your child simply sit around the house all summer
    and forget all of the important facts he learned during the previous school year.

    You can enroll your child in on of the countless continuing education programs out there today for young children and help
    him mold his brain while school is out of session. He may be upset with you for making him go to school while his friends
    are out playing, but he will thank you later on for how ahead it put him in the education game.

    Many churches offer summer bible camps that allow students the opportunity for continuing education on their religion. Or,
    there are also countless summer camps that you can enroll your child in to give them the opportunity to learn more about
    building important life skills while meeting and reconnecting with kids his own age.

    You are also sure to find continuing education programs put on by the local school districts, art centers, science centers
    or language programs. For example, you could enroll your child in an intensive Spanish language course to help him learn
    the language before taking the class this fall in school.

    If your child is a budding artist, enroll him in a continuing education art class where he can hone his inner Van Gogh and
    channel his energy into something other than video games and candy. Better yet, if your child thinks he is the next Einstein,
    enroll him in a chemistry continuing education class where he can practice the latest experiments under the close supervision
    of a real life scientist.

    The opportunities to engage your child in education and positive activities during the summer is endless, as long as your
    child is a willing participant. If he is adamant that he does not want to participate in anything that does not involve
    sitting on the couch or lounging by the pool, let him know that his choices now will affect everything in his future life:
    from his future allowance increases to the colleges he can choose from in the future.

    He may not react to the college part now, depending on his age, but he will most likely recognize the importance of his
    decisions when his allowance is involved! You can use this as a powerful bargaining chip when discussing summer continuing
    education options.

    This will pay off for you in the future. Your child will no doubt come to you one day and thank you for the extra push you
    gave him on his educational path. He will understand how important it was when he realizes how far ahead of his peers he is
    and how many more options he will have in his life resulting from the summer continuing education classes he had to take.

    So pull him off the couch and into the world of education!

    Continuing Education Courses for Professionals

  • Continuing Education Courses for Professionals

    If you work in a field where you must obtain a license to work in that profession, you are no doubt aware of the requirements
    of obtaining and keeping that license.

    One of the common requirements of many professions like nursing, dentistry, law or public relations is the continued
    commitment to education throughout your career. Why? Because in these fields, you are considered the experts and must stay
    abreast of current developments, research and trends to help your patients, clients and companies thrive in today’s cut-throat
    economy.

    The amount of continuing education you must complete per year varies per profession and license. Some licensing bodies will
    require a lot of continuing education courses throughout the year. Others will only require a couple of things to maintain
    the license.

    What happens to those professionals who fail to keep up with their continuing education? They can have their licenses suspended
    or revoked or they can have to pay huge fines and take more continuing education courses than they were supposed to in the
    first place.

    How do professionals in these fields know what will count toward their continuing education requirements? Usually their
    licensing bodies will let them know what they need to pursue for their education during the year and will govern what will
    be accepted as continuing education and what will not.

    Their licensing bodies will also give them the information they need to enroll for these courses. However, a growing trend
    has been continuing education courses offered online. There are several dozen web sites that offer continuing education
    courses that meet with approval from the appropriate governing body of the profession.

    Online continuing education courses for professionals work out well for these people because they are constantly busy with
    their careers and families and rarely have time to pursue theses courses in their down time. Instead, online continuing
    education courses allow them to get the requirements in while doing it on their own time and in the comfort of their offices
    and homes.

    If you are a professional in the medical, law, or public relations field, talk to others about their online experiences.
    Your colleagues will be your best sources of information on the best courses to take and the ones to stay away from at all
    costs.

    So what is the best part of these required classes? These classes are usually incredibly interesting and give you an
    opportunity to expand your skill set while satisfying requirements at the same time. These are not a chore and you should
    not view them like that if you are in the field. Your commitment to doing your best work and being a true expert relies on
    your continuing education.

    Just think, what would medicine be like if continuing education was not a requirement? We would probably still be using
    leeches in medicine and pulling teeth out with string and a door knob. Maybe not, but it proves that professions like this
    need to continue evolving and changing to remain effective and innovative.

    Should You Offer Continuing Education to Your Employees?

  • Should You Offer Continuing Education to Your Employees?


    Maybe an employee dropped it off anonymously in the company suggestion box a few weeks ago. Maybe one of the new bright-eyed
    employees stopped you one morning while you were on your way to get coffee. Or maybe Janeen from Accounting asked about it.
    For whatever reason, you have continuing education for your employees on the brain. And you cannot stop thinking about it.

    On one hand, you think it is a great idea. It can boost the company’s internal intelligence level while increasing company
    morale and encouraging employees to stick around. On the other hand, you think it is expensive and will cut in to productivity during the workday.

    Baloney! Offering continuing education to your employees is the best choice you could make for you, your company, you
    employees and your customers. Just think about it: you could offer a customer service training to all of your staff who
    have direct contact with customers. The staff learns important lessons and techniques for amazing customer service and in
    turn, your clients are happy. That means they will be more likely to do repeat business with you and your company makes more
    money.

    Then, you look better in the eyes of YOUR boss. And who does not want that?

    Or, all of your IT staff goes through a continuing education course on the importance of the new software the company is
    using. The IT staff learns the ropes of the software and even learns a few little tricks to keep the software running
    effectively and smoothly. In turn, your products go out on time and customers are happy. Again, that means they will be
    more likely to do repeat business with you and your company makes more money.

    And again, you look better in the eyes of YOUR boss. So tell me again why you think continuing education is a bad thing?

    Also, it boosts company morale because it shows your employees that you care about their minds and want to help make them
    in to better employees. So actually, the return goes both ways. You have a more educated staff and they have the greater
    self-confidence and intelligence needed to create a dynamic work environment.

    You could also look in to creating a program where employees can choose to take a class of their own choosing each year.
    That way they will be more loyal to your company because they feel like you have a vested interested in them and their
    well-being. And they are happier.

    So, get your coffee, go back to your desk and create a winning plan for continuing education at your company. You will look
    good, your employees will feel good, your customers will be happy and your boss will be impressed. You company will
    flourish and sales will continue to increase by the thousands (or maybe even millions!) Everyone is happy and you get the
    new corner office. You are now officially the company idealist, sales savior, favorite employee and the boss of the year!
