Resume Boosters page is up

October 02, 2007 By: Paul Category: Name Recognition, Resume Boosters, Unique Online Degree or Certificate Comments Off on Resume Boosters page is up

Our “resume boosters” section is up and running. Putting this page together required a little more research than I would normally like. Still, I think it represents an informative resource for those seeking non-credit continuing education options.

Check it out.   From a cost perspective, some of the opportunities seem almost incredible.  Others are about what you might expect.

Healthcare IT cert online through UConn

September 20, 2007 By: Paul Category: Name Recognition, Resume Boosters Comments Off on Healthcare IT cert online through UConn

University of Connecticut (UConn) offers a non-credit Healthcare Information Technology online certificate program. To earn the certificate, students must complete 5 courses. All courses are offered 3 times per year. Classes last 5 weeks.

Tuition appears reasonable. If tuition is paid upfront, then then entire program costs $1,425. Should one choose to pay per course at $325 each, total costs are then $1,625. A college degree is not required to enroll.

A few “name brand” universities offer non-credit programs that are similar in length but differ in subject matter. I’ll cover such programs in future posts.
