5. Do the documents mention “Life Experience” or anything like that? 

No. There is no mention of Life Skills or Experience on any documents. Your college degree is the same as any other degree awarded after completing a four year curriculum. The college will not provide transcripts or grades to persons earning their degree using the C.L.E.T exam because you will have”Tested-Out” of all classes and it would border as a ” FAKE DEGREE” to invent grades for classes that you never took. Some life experience degree grantors engage in that practice, but that is how you will know that they are not providing a bona-fide credential.

6. I’ve read in Wikipedia that you are considered among the best online, is this true?  

We believe we are always better than most other options that offer low-cost, fast results, without returning to a classroom because we do not promote fake degrees, invented transcripts or contrived explanations about why this is legal and legitimate. We have a simple and easily appreciated niche in the education market. A career related degree from a vocational college is faster and less expensive to earn because a vocational school does not have to offer non-career-related curriculum like history, geography, or even English, compared to an academic university that must offer many courses that contribute nothing to your career path or getting a job. A traditional college maintains a campus, a huge facility, and many other unwarranted expenses that you would pay for. That is why you are able to get a perfectly serviceable college degree without all of the typical wasted time and expense. 

Once you have your degree, nobody willcever ask you if your Bachelors is vocational or academic. Very few know the difference, and nobody really cares unless you are trying to become a rocket scientist or brain surgeon.


7. How acceptable are life experience degree’s?  

Employers are aware of the fact that attending a university classroom is not possible for a significant number of their workforce, plus they recognize the corporate benefits that a career-related degree program can bring to their business and their employee’s morale. Many people use our degree to bridge this gap and propel themselves to where they want to go, before, they had only hoped to be. However,one must be realistic about the differences between a traditional academic degree and a vocational degree. Vocational curriculum omits academic subjects like geography, psychology, literature, history, and focuses just on career skills. Therefore, it is easier, faster and less expensive to earn a vocational degree and it is usually not transferable to most academic universities, the military, and some high-tech employers.  Even so, the rapid growth of distance learning education programs, and virtual online classes and seminars, add to the overall appeal of College Degrees earned online. There is no doubt about the economic benefits of common sense alternative degrees based on experience, and when matched to real life credentials, they are their equal. NO APOLOGIES NECESSARY!

8. Are your Degree programs Accredited? 

“Our private college affiliates are Privately Accredited. Non traditional, and non-academic, vocational colleges and trade Schools are not accredited by the same agencies as traditional academic institutions.  

However, C.T.I , C.C.T.I., & C.B.E. have been accredited by The National Education Alliance since 1982. This program is also compliant with The Council for Adult & Experiential Learning. Our College-Level equivalency from non-collegiate sources is a program that “The American Council of Education’s College Credit and Recommendation Service”, provides. Additional accreditation comes from “The NEA Commission of Career Schools and Colleges”, and The California Bureau for Private Post-Secondary Education.  

Only 4.7% of those with vocational Bachelor degrees are unemployed, compared to 12.3% of traditional academic bachelor degree holders. The reason is that vocational degrees are focused on specific career paths, instead of general education, which leads to no specific career path. 

Did you know that accreditation is not legally required. It is, and has always been a voluntary process. Still, many believe it is very important to have their life experience degree’s, and traditional university degrees accredited. When viewed from a traditional school standpoint, adherence to national, and international customs for transfer of college credits or employers that are looking for certain school associations, and a few other reasons , make accreditation important to some. Always Check with your employer, educational institution, municipality or jurisdiction as to which, (if any), accrediting body they favor, and keep in mind that for career seekers, vocational accreditation is every bit as worthy and valuable as more traditional academic accreditation, but not coming from the same agencies.
