"This is an amazing opportunity for us to be able to offer college credits to our clients and students," said Russell Sarder (http://www.russellsarder.com), Author, Business Magnate and CEO of NetCom Learning. "NetCom Learning's purpose is to promote the value of Lifelong Learning, and this partnership enables us to continue to provide a path of lifelong learning. In addition to in-class or online hands-on training and certification preparation, we are delighted to offer a path for students to get a college degree.
"This partnership will meet the training needs of a large population of student-employees,"
Despite a high unemployment rate, the job vacancy rate continues to rise, indicating that there is a skills gap between employees and the potential jobs they could fill. "At NetCom Learning we're continually monitoring the trends and updating the courses to make sure we are offering the most up-to-date courses that students -- and employers-- are demanding. Traditional universities don't have the resources to constantly update their offerings to stay on the cutting edge" Sarder said.
