Today I stopped by Itt tech and got a tour and information. Thinking about taking their networking classes and getting an AA degree. Granted, the tuition is a bit high, but no higher than a major university like UK or UL.
But I am wondering if anyone here has any experience with them or former students?
I really need to get out of my current job and an education is the way to go
An AA is normally what our community colleges offer. These are popular in our small or rural areas. Generally they are a two year program. Students attend these then transfer to a four year college or university. They allow students to get their basic or general studies requirements while still close to home. There are also community colleges located in larger cities that even though are a two year college have facilities that rival small universities.
We also have education facilities like trade schools that concentrate on one or a few trades. Their curriculum is intended to produce grads that go directly in to a trade. Common ones would be secretarial jobs, welding, mechanics, hair styling and barber, computer technicians, nursing etc. many don't offer a degree but provide a certificate indicating proficiency.
If we don't count our blessings We are just wasting our time

I think it's a degree only
Still looking around. Our community college offers something similar I think. Tuition is definitely cheaper, but not sure class size (I prefer small classes) and, since I am new at it, how well they teach to people like me.
ITT told me that they start out at basic level if you don't know it and the classes are really small.
Plus the ability to audit classes in future for free really is nice.
The good thing is that I don't HAVE to do it, but if I want to have options or if something does happen to my job, I would have the option of having more employment options.
I went to one in 82-83, it was Devry then. Had been ITT before that, then it changed to Devry, now it's ITT again.
It was a 2 year night program after work. I finished with a digital tech diploma, and if I wanted to turn it into a bachelors degree I would have had to take some humanities courses, speech, writing, etc. The full time day programs offered a 2 year tech degree though. Night classes for the diploma were 4 hours a night, 3 nights a week. Daytime for the degree was something like all day 4-5 days a week.
It was $10,000+ a year back then for just the diploma course, the degree course was a lot more. In my case my employer paid for it though so that was cool.
This is why I ask.. like reboot.. I went to a school where you could get the degree or a certificate. If I had to do it again, I would just get the certificate. I went to theArt Institute of Ft Lauderdale. I asked if they were accredited.. the counselor said yes. Cool. 1/2 way through the 2 year program i found out they were accredited.. just not with the state. So... I spent over $20,000 and 1/2 of that was wasted. I can't take all of those non related courses, Math, English Lit, etc. to any state school and build on my Associates degree. What a waste of 10+ grand. Find out if they are accredited with the state.. otherwise it's pointless to gat an AA.
