Online education is rapidly increasing in popularity, but sometimes it is difficult to know whether the program or school you are looking at is of good repute
Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 19, 2008
AssociateDegreeOnline.com, a website providing information about online associate degree programs, recently started offering free information on several new degrees: associate degree programs in property management, kitchen and bath design, and medical assisting.
"Online education is rapidly increasing in popularity, but sometimes it is difficult to know whether the program or school you are looking at is of good repute," said Ron Denny, owner of Online Exposure and Associate Degree Online. "Our goal with our website is to take the guesswork out of finding an associate degree program, by providing information on many different degrees all on one website users know they can trust."
One of the new degrees offered on Associate Degree Online is a property management associate degree. This degree program prepares students to work as a property manager for real estate companies, such as large apartment complexes and companies that manage properties for private owners. As part of this, the degree program includes training in understanding leases, accounting and bookkeeping, apartment operations, and marketing.
"There are many good jobs for someone with a property management associate degree," Denny said. "Especially with credit being so hard to come by these days, more people are renting than in recent years, which means an increased need for property managers."
AssociateDegreeOnline.com has also added a kitchen and bath design associate degree to its repertoire. This degree program includes training in the knowledge and skills one needs to design and remodel kitchens and bathrooms on a contract basis: from technical knowledge and skills, such as building codes and lighting, to more creative principles, such as basics of design and color.
Associate Degree Online's medical assisting associate degree is another new addition. The program includes training in everything from anatomy and physiology, to insurance processing and medical law, ensuring that students are prepared to take on the medical industry. This popular degree and the current shortage in medical professionals gives program graduates many opportunities for job security, income, and career advancement.
All three of these programs are offered online. "Online associate degrees open up new possibilities for many students," Denny said. "There are many secure, high-paying jobs available for graduates of associate degree programs. An online program enables you to get the education you need to get those jobs, even if you have a family to support and an inflexible work schedule."
