Start Training and Get Working in as Little as 12 Months or Transfer Your Credits to a University

There’s a lot of uncertainty in the world right now and one of the main things people worry about is obtaining recognized, quality training and finding a good job. Many people are now choosing not to go straight into university, but go the College route. You learn in a more intimate setting, get employment-specific career training, can obtain a certificate or diploma, start working, or transfer to a local or international university to get your degree. The possibilities are endless at Focus College.

Three of the top fields to get career training in today are Business, IT, and Travel and Tourism. These industries continue to experience growth – and growth means jobs.

At Focus College, you can get career training that’s focused on helping you find a good job, and you can do that in a relatively short time. There are 2-year Advanced Diploma programs that can be completed in as little as 18 months if you choose the accelerated route, and there are 1-year Advanced Certificate programs that can lead to employment or a diploma and then degree. And there are even shorter certificate programs for people who can’t commit to a longer program.

It makes sense to take the step-by-step approach: Start with practical, career-focused training that can help you start earning and saving in a relatively short amount of time, and use that money to invest in a university degree if you want. That’s safer than getting into debt right now for a university degree that might not pay for itself after you graduate.
