You want to advance your career, but you don't know where to start. You want to work in a type of field where there is growth, and you'll be able to earn an income where you can support your family easily.
A trade school allows you to learn a specific trade in a short amount of time, allowing you to get into a career quickly after graduation. When you already have time constraints due to your job and family needs, you don't have time to dedicate years to a degree you're not even sure you'll be able to use upon graduation.
The rally cry for free post-secondary education has been forefront in mainstream news since before the 2016 election. The closest solution that there is today to free college are MOOCs. MOOC is the acronym for Massive Open Online Courses. As of June 2018, over 9,000 students are seeking degrees through MOOCs. There are currently 25 online MOOC degrees from various colleges and universities.
Although the jury is out whether MOOC degrees are a sustainable business model, the concept has caught on with mainstream educational institutions around the world.
