Why Online Education is a Great Option for WIOA Funds
A career change can have a huge impact on a person's life, helping them increase their earning potential, qualify for more job opportunities and find a greater sense of purpose. Many people think they need to go back to school and earn a degree in order to launch a new career, but this simply isn't the case.
If you're helping customers make a career transition, it's important to let them know about the opportunities available through online certification programs like MedCerts and how they can pick up the skills and credentials needed to transition to a new career. Let's take a closer look at the steps job seekers will need to take to make a career change without a degree.
MedCerts is WIOA-Approved
There's no doubt that the right training program can help launch new careers, but the cost of training is likely a real obstacle for many of your customers. While it's common for participants to use their WIOA funding for classes at a local community college, that funding can also be used at MedCerts.
Applying this financial assistance to an online program can help participants launch a new career quickly and eliminate concerns about how to pay for their education.
The Power of Short-term Career Training
What makes online certification training such a terrific option for your customers? Put simply, it puts them on the fast track to an in-demand new career. Not all career changes require a lengthy degree program. For many lucrative careers in IT and healthcare, all that's needed is a short-term certification program that can be completed in a matter of months.
Some training programs provide a more flexible approach to education; for example, those offered by MedCerts are fully online. Students can access their course materials anytime, from any location. This kind of flexibility helps them take the steps needed to make a career change while keeping up with their current responsibilities and commitments.
Support is Essential
Your clients will almost definitely be intimidated by a career change, but the right support can make all the difference in getting a new career off the ground. Students who use WIOA funding to pursue a MedCerts training program enjoy the benefits of one-on-one support from the beginning of their program. They receive a personalized orientation, and they have access to Student Support Advisors throughout their training.
After they complete their training and take their certification exam, MedCerts students continue to receive support with resume writing, interview skills, and even job hunting. MedCerts' partnerships with well-known companies and staffing agencies give students a competitive edge, helping them land positions in their new career sooner.
A career change doesn't necessitate going back to school for a degree, and your clients must be aware of this. With the help of the WIOA program, they can get the training they need to launch lucrative new careers. MedCerts' Workforce Development programs offer flexibility and one-on-one support to help students become job-ready for positions in healthcare and IT.
