PROVO, UT, January 17, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Career Step, an online school providing career-focused education, has just released an infographic on the benefits of certificate education programs. The new infographic details the advantages of certificate programs, how they compare to two- and four-year degrees in cost and time and, most importantly, the in-demand fields students can enter and be successful in with a certificate.
"Certificate programs offer an excellent, affordable way for students to quickly gain the skills they need to start working," said Career Step CEO Steve Tober. "There is often a perception that degree programs are the only higher education option after high school, but certificate programs are a terrific option as they help students quickly get in, get out and get working ."
The new infographic details a number of benefits students in certificate programs can take advantage of including specialized study programs, a career skills focus, and nationwide networking opportunities. There are also charts depicting the differences between degree and certificate programs in terms of the time students take to complete the training and tuition costs.
"We have been offering quality certificate programs for over 20 years, and on average our students finish their training in just 11 months," said Jerolyn Robertson, Career Step Vice President of Academics. "Rather than spending years in school, our students can graduate and be working and out earning great salaries in less than a year."
Over 85,000 students have taken Career Step training programs, and the school specializes in preparing students for rewarding careers in growing fields through certificate programs. Career Step programs are focused in in-demand areas of the healthcare, technology and administration industries.
