In response to online training course demand, Portland Community College has partnered with Gatlin Education Services to provide programs in healthcare; business; design and technical; and video game design and development.
The new online training courses are designed for individuals looking to switch career paths, obtain advanced training and certifications, or for first-time job seekers who need specialized training. The courses are all open enrollment and self-paced, and students are paired with a personal instructor. Online training courses take an average of 90 days to complete and provide training for entry-level positions.
Jobseekers can be trained in these occupations by taking online courses offered through Portland Community College via Gatlin Education Services. They offer online training programs in the fields mentioned above, as well as many other high interest areas.
“Between juggling a job, a home, a family and a social life, there isn’t always a lot of time left to attend an on-campus class,” said Stephen Gatlin, founder of Fort Worth-based Gatlin Education Services. “Online training offers the convenience of working from your personal computer and at your own pace. It’s a viable tool right now as evidenced by the growing number of people utilizing it, and is the way of the future.”
Established in 1989, Gatlin Education Services is the largest provider of Web-based, instructor-supported training to colleges and universities. GES open-enrollment programs are designed to provide the skills necessary to acquire professional caliber positions for many in-demand occupations.
