One of the keys to this school's success is the enrollment process that is available on the Web site. Penn Foster's career programs serve enough clients to make it one of the largest of its kind. It's been around for decades "to empower adult learners" who want to advance their current careers or want to change careers.
Career programs are offered in more than 50 areas, including:
Penn Foster Global has a popular photography training program designed to be used
"at home, at your own pace with Penn Foster."
The plan is intended to be completed in a matter of months. Specific items covered are:
Many graduates go to work with an established portrait studio, work for an advertising agency or newspaper, or even start their own studio or photography business.
The photography curriculum is made up of seven "instruction sets" that take the student through all the necessary techniques and skills.
As soon as a student completes online enrollment, the first set is sent to their home. When exams are completed and submitted, other sets are sent to get the next round of study started.
The program includes a Graduation Set: The Photographer's Market and How You Can Make $25,000 a Year With Your Camera.
Penn Foster Global's structure includes a college opportunity accredited by the state of Arizona. This institution offers associate degrees in accounting, business management, civil engineering technology, criminal justice, early childhood education, marketing, retail management and several more areas.
Undergraduate certificates are offered in accounting, business management, general studies and human resources.
With home study, "class" starts as soon as you receive materials. Some students take up to 12 months to complete a course of study, while others move more quickly. You must have a high school diploma or GED to enroll in degree programs. Penn Foster also offers a high school program.
Courses are designed with the non-traditional student in mind. Many students fear they may not be able to complete the course satisfactorily because they have been away from formal education for so long.
But home study makes this less stressful.
Each program includes all the books and materials needed. No additional cost is involved (except a pen and writing paper). Some programs include a resident laboratory segment. There is a lab fee for these courses.
