Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why would anyone choose to go to a traditional schooling program, when yours has so many great benefits and advantages over the others?

A: Because our programs are not for everyone. Students must meet special qualification guidelines to take our programs, which not everyone is able to meet. The other reason is that many people who would qualify, do not know that there is an alternative to the traditional college and university vocational programs because it is not something that most schools know and are willing to admit.


Q: What is the difference between the certifications and credentials earned through your programs versus those earned after completing a traditional vocational college/university program?

A: There is no difference between the certifications. It’s not the certification and credentials that is different, it is the method taken to earn those certifications/credentials that is different. Traditional schooling is one way, and meeting our qualification guidelines and completing one of our programs is another. They are just two different paths that end at the same destination. Not everyone qualifies for this path, whereas anyone could qualify for the other.
