Kaplan Continuing Education Shows Trends for Top Online Education Programs

Kaplan Continuing Education provides insight into trends for top online education programs. With the economic downturn, many professionals are now looking for ways to become a more valuable asset by advancing their skills. The demand for training in IT careers and health care professionals is leading to increased enrollment in related certificate programs.

“The trends for online education continue to rise. Many people are looking for alternative education methods where they can be home with their family or continue to work a full-time job, while getting the schooling and enhanced preparation needed for advancing their career. Training for a career in IT and health care can become very lucrative as the baby boomer population needs help in both of these areas,” said Ron Trautman, president of Kaplan Continuing Education.
