Instructional material requirements:
Yes, since ed2go programs are online, you never have to actually travel to the school. Most schools offer telephone or online registration.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
All required materials are provided as part of the course and covered in the tuition fee.
ed2go courses are non-credit courses, so they do not qualify for federal aid. In some states, vocational rehab or workforce development boards will pay for qualified students to take our courses. Additionally, some students may qualify for financial assistance when they enroll, if they meet certain requirements.
Upon successful completion of the program, you will be awarded a certificate of completion. You will also receive a voucher for the CompTIA Cloud+ CV0-001 certification exam.
ed2go programs will provide you with the skills you need to obtain an entry-level position in most cases. We don’t provide direct job placement services, but our facilitators and career counselors will help you build your resume and are available to give advice on finding your first job. Facilitators will also be available to use as a professional reference upon completion of the program. Potential students should always do research on the job market in their area before registering.
