CCI Training Center continues to make continuing education easier and more convenient for non-traditional students. In keeping with this policy, we’re proud to announce our popular Business & Accounting program is expanding. Beginning in January 2019, in addition to taking these courses at either our Arlington or Dallas campus locations, our students will have 24/7 access to online classes within this concentration. The program also includes office assistant career preparations and administrative assistance career preparations.
Advantages of Taking 100 Percent Online Accounting Classes
Accounting is a rewarding career, but not everyone who needs basic accounting skills plans to become a CPA or financial specialist. CCI Training 100 percent online accounting courses cover important accounting topics for people who want to expand their knowledge base to qualify for a promotion, launch a new business or change career fields. The same advantages apply in taking office assistant courses.
Benefits For Students
Asynchronous coursework accommodates busy lifestyles. Whether you are an early riser or a night owl, online professional development allows you to access lessons and lectures when you’re focused and alert, resulting in higher comprehension and retention. People who work schedule study time around work hours, without sacrificing precious time with family, church or volunteer activities.
Plus, you’ll still have access to skilled instructors, tutors and a full range of student resources to support you through every step of the journey.
Benefits For Employers
Forward thinking business leaders see professional development as a win-win for the student-worker and the organization.
Employers today not only encourage workers to use online learning tools to prepare for future roles within their organizations, some willingly reimburse students for the cost of coursework that improves competencies. Why? Because, course completion provides a measurable component that allows HR personnel to effectively match competencies with job requirements. And, every employer know that a confident employee is happier and performs better than one who feels stressed and overwhelmed in a position they aren’t qualified for.
Business leaders find that encouraging when staff take advantage of online business and accounting classes through vocational training schools which improves employee retention rates, while reducing in-house training expenses.
Saving money is always a bonus for decision-makers, especially when budgets are tight. So, supporting online learning opportunities for workers makes perfect sense. Web-based programs eliminate the costly investment that comes with traditional employer-sponsored workshops. Saving money on trainers, employee commuting expenses, classroom and infrastructure rentals and supplies can be allocated to other business expenses.
