Recently, California lawmakers approved legislation authorizing the “work experience for college credit” option. This newest legislation is to foster respectability of accelerated degree programs, in business colleges (vocational trade schools), as well as online career schools. They accomplish this by authorizing the awarding of “vocational degrees” for college undergraduates. Individuals who complete the accelerated degree program receive their “Bachelor of Vocational Education Certificate”.
Supporters of the accelerated degree program make it clear that although it looks and sounds very similar, it is not the same as an academic degree from a university. They point out that few would question the distinction between a “Bachelor of Vocational Education” and an academic “Bachelor of Education” ,(or a Master of Vocational Education). Sources say that “Without promoting deception, the Bachelor of Vocational Education Certificate enables the individual to seek employment without feeling disadvantaged by the absence of an education credential any longer.”
Continental Career Training Institute (C.C.T.I.), has seen the future, and chosen to be an instrumental part of the accelerated degree programs. The school is an online trainer and publisher of self-study programs, vocationally accredited by The National Education Alliance. They currently offer the Vocational Bachelor’s program, enabling college dropouts to have a renewed , fast, affordable and respectable, path to a legitimate college degree.
According to the degree requirements for obtaining a Bachelor of Vocational Education, there must be sufficient prior learning and work experience in the student’s chosen career field. The student must also achieve twelve to eight weeks of successful self-study (home), and pass an open book college-level equivalency exam. Fulfilling these requirements successfully will result in receiving a Bachelor’s credential. Time, money, impatience and limited ambition no longer need be an obstacle to a genuine college degree.
Critics of accelerated degree programs often point to violators who sell fake degrees and counterfeit school transcripts without applying the qualifying criteria above. They condemn the “college credit for work experience” idea as a “scam”, and insist that it results in under-qualified degrees that are illegal and dishonest. However, supporters of the Bachelor of Vocational Education degree program turn to the new California legislation to affirm the concept’s legitimacy. They state that the “vocational degrees may be quick and affordable, but they are also honest, respectable and completely legal”, even though they are less demanding than what academic degree standards require. Backers point out that vocational credentials focus on practical, employable job skills, bypassing ivory tower social studies and resulting in less time and money to earn the credential.
Those in favor of the degree program suggest that it is often the Academic universities and private colleges who are being insincere when they disparage Vocational Schools for offering credits for work experience . Reports confirm that Academic universities and private colleges routinely “dangle college credits in exchange for work experience as a way to satisfy up to half of the required semester units needed to earn an Associate degree”. This could mistakenly lead hundreds of thousands of under-employable students into unmanageable student loan debt when a more affordable vocational credential could result in better pay, sooner.
Sources at Continental Career Training Institute had this to say about the Bachelor of Vocational Education: “When viewed in combination with the convenience of online courses, prior learning, credit for work experience ,plus it’s focus on employable skills instead of on “soft” subjects like philosophy and psychology, the addition of a legal ‘vocational degree’, is a catalyst that boosts the entire appeal of credentials for non-graduates.” It promises to become a significant “game Changer” in higher education for the average job seeker.
