Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, 2008/07/29 - Victoria School of Business and Technology has partnered with Gatlin Education Services, part of Cengage Learning and ed2go, to offer online career training courses.
Online career training courses are in heavy demand. Staying on the cutting edge of this popular educational methodology, Victoria School of Business and Technology recently partnered with Gatlin Education Services to provide online career training courses in the fields of business, IT and software development, as well as media and design.
Accessible online, the non-credit courses can help individuals at any stage of their career. Whether the student is interested in switching career paths, obtaining advanced training and certificates, or a first-time job seeker in need of specialized training, Victoria School of Business and Technology and Gatlin provide the necessary resources for workforce, corporate, vocational rehabilitation or individual career training, all from the convenience of your own home or office.
Gatlin programs blend various types of instruction in a unique format that provides a logical, comprehensive and effective education. The typical course combines online instructional content, traditional textbook material and instructor-facilitated lessons. Though the courses are self-paced, personal instructors are available to guide every student. This blended learning differentiates Victoria School of Business and Technology and Gatlin courses from ordinary online courses. Each course is open enrollment and takes an average of 90 days to complete.
Web-based instruction is growing in popularity. Gatlin’s enrollments with their partner institutions have increased by 100 percent in the last year. The company has strategic partnerships with more than 700 institutions of higher learning worldwide.
“Between juggling a job, a home, a family and a social life, there isn’t always a lot of time left to attend an on-campus class,” said Mark Lamkin, executive director of Fort Worth-based Gatlin Education Services. “Online training offers the convenience of working from your personal computer and at your own pace. It’s a viable tool right now as evidenced by the growing number of people utilizing it, and is the way of the future.”
