Online Training

There are several high quality online training opportunities. Nevertheless, beware. There are others that are not and costs vary. Before investing in online training, ask these questions:

  • Does this training provide college credit? If not,
  • Does this training provide continuing education units (CEU) from a reputable source, such as a college, university, or an organization approved by the International Association for Continued Education and Training (IACET) to award CEU?
  • Are there opportunities to ask questions or get assistance from someone throughout the course?
  • Is this program on the list of approved training courses (particularly if you are taking the course to fill state requirements)?
