The educational option many working adults choose is a career college. Career colleges offer flexible scheduling and have proper resources to greatly reduce waiting lists, if they have any at all. The biggest drawback is they cost more to attend. Consider a career college to be like a private community college. However, flexible scheduling and shorter time to graduation compensate for higher initial cost of a career college.
How much will career training cost?
This is probably most difficult question. If youíre like most working adults, you donít have an eight month emergency reserve fund stashed away but, you do have credit card bills, a car payment, possibly children and that nagging monthly rent/mortgage payment. Chances are youíre not in a position to quit your existing job. Due to flexible class schedules youíll still be able to work and keep that income. Student loans or grants are a possibility to pay for tuition. Also, check if your company has a tuition reimbursement plan. Even though youíre thinking about leaving your job, your company may have a need for career youíre interested in training in.
The bottom line is if you donít feel satisfied with your current job, you donít have to stay with it for rest of your working years. There are a number of great careers available that pay well and require less than two years of training time.
