If it hadn’t been for the online courses that PTC has to offer, I wouldn’t have been able to start when I did and I wouldn’t be as far along in my degree as I am now.
Even though I have class deadlines, learning online allows me to work at my own pace, and it’s more flexible for people like me who work full time and have a busy schedule. I would definitely recommend online classes to prospective students especially those who want to attend college but have personal life obligations at work and home.
One of the challenges I faced with picking a college was finding a program that worked with my schedule. As a fulltime firefighter, I knew I would struggle with being able to take classes. TCL offers a flexible schedule and I was able to complete 90 percent of my classes online.
In my online classes, I met people who were both my age and older, so it helped me adjust to the variety of students.
I took the online classes so I could be with my children when they get out of school. I have never taken any classes online because I am a hands on learner, but I found that I was able to do the work on my own time when I was not busy. I would definitely recommend this type of class to other students.
