A Message From Our CEO:
3/23/2020: As instances of coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to rise across the country, we remain focused on supporting our students, graduates, employees, those considering enrolling, and the communities in which we live and work.
As an organization, we are following the precautionary measures recommended by the CDC and are also abiding by local government recommendations for each of our regional offices. We are taking measures to ensure that our Academic and Student Services Teams have the tools they need to support you.
Our digital platform is built for anytime, anywhere remote access so you can still proceed with your studies at your own pace and without interruption. We are employing our best efforts to maintain the high-quality level of support you are accustomed to receiving from our instructors and service staff but due to current circumstances, shipping and services delays may occur during this time.
Thank you for learning with us. We take our role in the development of your educational journey very seriously and will remain focused on sustaining our commitment to you to earn the skills needed for the jobs of today and tomorrow. We will keep you posted with additional information as it becomes available.
Important information on shipments & mailings
During this time, we are open and operating as close to normal as possible. Many of our employees are working remotely and will continue to provide the support you expect. In order to best support your needs, we want to make you aware of areas within our typical services that are impacted by our office closures. In general, for the fastest service or response, please email us rather than through the mail. You can find the contact information via your online Learning Center or Student Portal.
We have resumed shipping course materials for those programs which include physical items. Over the past months, we have improved our ability to support students digitally so that not all program require physical materials.
For materials that are mailed to the school, they will still reach us, however, please expect delays of up to a week or more for processing depending on the volume of mail we receive. We are doing everything we can to ensure that mailed documents are getting to the right people within our organization:
If you have additional questions, we encourage you to review your self-service tools and send us an email via your online Learning Center or Student Portal.
COVID-19 Testing Practices & Procedures Training
Attention healthcare students and professionals:
In partnership with Guild Education and Southern New Hampshire University, we’ve developed an easily-accessible, informative course for qualified healthcare volunteers and professionals. This COVID-19 Testing Practices and Procedures Training is free and can be completed online in just 30 minutes to help you to gain the broad understanding needed to safely administer these tests in the coming weeks.
Here’s what’s covered in this course:
We appreciate you taking the time to educate yourself on the COVID-19 virus, and hope this training contributes to your safety on the path ahead.
As developments related to the COVID-19 outbreak continue to unfold, we want to make you aware of this important information related to your externship. We will keep you updated as we learn more.
As you are aware, many businesses and local communities are putting in place policies to limit the number of people in shared spaces. These policies may impact the ability for you to complete (or begin) your externship at this time.
As of now, students will be able to place their externship on hold for 6 weeks at a time, as well as extend their semesters of study for as long as needed during this COVID-19 crisis. Please know that we are continuing to monitor this situation and will report on any changes. Our goal is to ensure that you complete your requirements. Also, know that we will be waiving fees if extensions are needed to complete your studies because your externship has been delayed.
What you should do now:
