Low Turn-Around Time, Highly Flexible Online Training Programs

You already know that WNC and particularly the Asheville area is teeming with healthcare organizations, nonprofit groups, and combinations of the two. But did you know that A-B Tech now offers two completely online, Continuing Education Certificate programs that can help you gain the skills you need to get in the game?

These two programs are designed to give you introductory soft skills (which, if you’ve been reading this blog, you know are VERY IMPORTANT to employers), as well as technical knowledge specific to the environment in which you want to work. Best of all, they don’t require that you arrange additional transportation, childcare, or time away from home, and they have the added perk of built-in flexibility!

Each program is made up of five individual, online, instructor-led classes. Each class lasts for six weeks, and you have a variety of options about how quickly you want to progress. You can finish in as little as six months, or as much as one year, depending on your schedule and budget. The tuition for each class is due as you enroll, so this is an affordable way to work through the program without a significant investment at the beginning. Most of the classes don’t require any additional textbooks, which is a bonus if you’re looking for a great value.

Here’s a little information about each program; to see specific requirements for each class, just click the title.
