Why should I take a distance education course instead of a live class?

Distance education is a win-win situation. Not only do you get a quality education, but you can complete the course in a flexible, convenient and self-paced manner. You have all of the benefits of a traditional classroom – teacher/student interaction, relevant course material, live student support – with the added benefits of learning from home. Prepare for your career without the hassles of parking, babysitting, extra gas, etc.

Below is a list of just some of the differences:

Live Traditional Courses vs. Distance Education
Drive to class and sit in a classroom   Learn from the comfort of your home
Learn limited amount of material in class   Learn as quick as you want from home
Take your final exam at school   Take your final exam online from your home or office
Balance work/family issues   Choose to learn when it’s convenient
Learn at a specific time and place   Learn anytime, anywhere
Expensive   Affordable

A classroom course does not let you be in charge of your education. Allied’s distance education options let you choose where, when and how to learn.

How does distance education work?

Allied provides a convenient way to complete a distance education course through online learning. When you enroll in an online course, you have the added benefit of completing all assignments and exams online. (Please note that some courses are 100% online and have all of the materials, assignments and exams available only through your computer, while others include a correspondence component with PDF e-books and online quizzes and tests.)

Once you receive your materials and/or enroll in your 100% online course, you have up to one year to complete the course, working at your own pace and completing assignments and exams when you choose, unless you are in a course with a structured schedule. Upon completion of your course, you will have access to a Certificate of Completion.

What are the benefits of choosing an online course?

You receive the same education in the online and traditional correspondence courses; however, the online course provides students with a few added benefits that include:

  • Start minutes after you enroll
  • Receive instant feedback on the quizzes and final exam
  • You will have access to a Certificate of Completion when you complete your courses
What if I need help during my course?

One of the biggest advantages you will find at Allied is one-on-one support. If you need assistance for any reason throughout your course, you can contact a representative during regular business hours and receive live student support. We will answer any of your course questions, assist with technical issues, and more. Help is only a phone call, e-mail or fax away!
