Training today is an indispensable
corporate investment in human capital. Online learning is growing
in popularity as the training solution of choice in nearly every
sector of the business world today. Because the employee can learn
while they are working full time, there is no opportunity cost
to the employer. Employees continue to be productive while enriching
their abilities to contribute more to
the company’s success and future growth.
Partnering with DETC Institutions
Partnering your company with DETC Institutions
offers several distinct and money saving advantages. Both students
and employers benefit from DETC accreditation. All schools belonging
to the Distance Education and Training Council are
accredited. They have been examined and found to meet the educational
and business ethics standards set by the Accrediting Commission,
an independent Commission which has been listed by the U.S. Department
of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency.
Here are some of the benefits:
- Courses offered on a 24/7 basis, allowing
employees the opportunity to learn and even earn a college degree
at night and weekends. This is especially attractive to shift
workers that are mandated to have industry training or just
to enhance knowledge or skills.
- Save money by training staff off normal
hours. Increase morale for higher loyalty and reduced turnover,
and supervision expenses. Additional savings are realized in
travel time. Disparate groups can be brought together in the
online environment with no need to arrange travel, classrooms,
special scheduling challenges, etc.
- DETC distance learning programs are affordable.
DETC tuition is often one half to two thirds lower than similar
programs offered by “name plate” providers new to
- Programs are delivered anytime and anywhere,
including international opportunities.
- DETC courses and programs are also an excellent
fit for students with restricted mobility, disability, geographic
limitations, and family responsibilities.
Distance learning/independent study can be
delivered "anytime, anywhere". Students may study outside
of the work environment - at home without the sponsoring corporation
incurring down time, travel expenses, training facility expenses,
and hiring instructors. This has the effect of dramatically reducing
training costs when compared to traditional classroom-based education.
