IT Training opportunity

One of the things that I love about homeschooling is that you can tailor the teaching, the style, the curriculum, to the student. You can try different ways of learning until you find a good fit. If a student learns better one way versus another, why not use the one that fits best? It can make such a difference!!

It's just great to have so many different learning options available today. You can take traditional classroom studies, independent studies, correspondence studies, or online studies. I get excited to see this for little ones as well as far adult learners. I love that there are so many opportunities to pursue learning for those who were once considered "non-traditional" students, or anyone over the age of 20. There are so many learning opportunities that fit into working adults' lives, and that can enhance those working lives.

A field that continues to grow in not only material to learn, but also in job prospects after learning that material, is IT, or information technology. Cisco certification is a great program to really get into this field. Cisco offers many different certifications, at varying levels, taking varying amounts of time to complete the programs. You really can fine tune which program you take to match your specific skills, desires, and available time. Training resources, from instructor-led courses to remote access labs and e-learning solutions, are also available.

Right now I am concentrating on homeschooling my children, but who knows where the future may lead for me academically, or vocationally. I may take my very limited knowledge of computers and such and transform it into a valuable working certification. We'll have to wait and see....
