Allied Schools is working with the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC) and the military to provide accredited career training programs to military spouses to help them build their own careers and support their families worldwide. A high-income career is within reach with flexible and convenient distance education courses.
Since 2006, Allied has cultivated courses and developed relationships in the industry to create specialized military spouse programs. The school offers an education that is nationally accredited by DETC, an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education; and works directly with the U.S. military to make military spouse programs readily available abroad and at home.
"We know that the life of a military spouse includes living on a flexible schedule and learning to quickly adapt to change," said George Achenbach, president of Allied Schools. "Allied wants to help them provide for their families while their partners are on duty and reach their own career goals."
Distance education allows military spouses to train anywhere in the world while maintaining the responsibilities of family life. On line and traditional correspondence courses let them learn from home, on their own schedule and at their own pace. Course discounts make starting a career affordable and easy. If military spouses reside in the same household as someone serving in the military, they can take advantage of exclusive discounts only available to them.
There are 25+ career training courses designed to help them succeed outside of a traditional classroom. There is comprehensive training in the areas of real estate, medical and business. They can use CD-ROMs, videos, DVDs, textbooks and study guides to learn or complete assignments and tests 100% online.
Military spouses have access to live personalized support throughout the duration of their program when they enroll at Allied. The staff is available via phone, e-mail and fax to help at every stage - military spouses are never alone. Job assistance is also available to help with their job search. From preparing an effective resume and cover letter to conducting a successful interview, they will get the skills to make a smooth transition into the workplace.
"Allied has a unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of military spouses," said Achenbach. "We want to make the process as smooth as possible and provide them with all of the resources they need to benefit their families."
