Voorhees College expanding educational landscape by enhancing its continuing education offerings adding over 1,500 certificate courses
The online virtual campus offers a flexible twenty-four seven, three-hundred and sixty-five days a year access accelerated online system that is designed to fit both the traditional and non-traditional learner. No formal application is required to get started. An additional bonus for the non-traditional lifelong learner working professional is that they can expand their knowledge and in most cases reinvent themselves and possibly even create a new career brand that they may have never once considered.
With an emphasis on innovation, convenience, and quality, this extension represents another milestone in the college's aim to bridge and erase the educational digital divide and position itself as a forerunner in the area of non-degree continuing education across the globe.
Dr. Ronnie Hopkins, Provost and Vice-President for Academic Affairs at Voorhees College, said, "Non-credit classes and non-degree programs offer personal development and intellectual growth opportunities. Students and lifelong learners who participate in these courses will expand their minds and learn new information about areas of interest."
Some of the specially designed virtual campus non-credit, non-degree offerings that will be accessible include certificates in women leadership, diversity and inclusion trainer, public relations, entrepreneurship, artificial intelligence, machine learning, data scientist, supply chain management, digital marketing, cybersecurity, eSports competitive gaming innovation, digital musical publishing, hospitality and hotel management, beauty and hair cosmetology institute, entertainment law, social justice, second-chance reentry and an opportunity for Veterans to utilize military funding per office of Veterans of Affairs approval.
Hopkins continued, "The multi-year partnership with Aperion Global Institute will allow Voorhees College to bolster its non-credit course offerings by helping the college amplify its presence in high career-demand markets."
Costs for the courses are affordable and range from $99 for a typical four-week course to $297 for a 12-week course or a student can bundle an entire curriculum for a more affordable price and save even more. Students are able to gain access to the course offerings through any mobile phone, tablet, personal computer, desktop, and AGI's Edu App.
Isiah Reese, Chief Executive Officer of Aperion Global Institute, said, "our entire leadership team and educational experts are ecstatic about this partnership agreement. The leadership team lead by the President Dr. Evans along with the VP of Academic Provost, Dr. Hopkins coupled with Mrs. Verna Fakunle, Executive Director of Academic Support Programs has established a clear roadmap that we strongly believe will only deliver a successful educational outcome from this agreement."
"Our primary aim first and foremost is to always have a high completion rate. Also, it is extremely important that each and every learner that engages with any of our unique online virtual campus courses have a first class learning and rewarding experience,"
Dr. W. Franklin Evans, President of Voorhees College is excited about the opportunities this partnership will bring. "These non-intensive classes give students chances to examine, analyze and research topics for personal development and for fun. This type of learning experience will be very rewarding," Evans said.
