Chandler, AZ (PressExposure) February 12, 2009 -- Development courses and continuing education courses are the hallmark of 360 Education Solutions whose philosophy is dedicated to changing American education one degree at a time. 360 Education Solutions is an advocate in the search for quality distance learning programs. Using the 360 Education Solutions website is extremely easy.
You select an area of study: education and teaching, public service, business and technology and health care. You'll choose your desired education level, pick the program that interests you and just fill out one form. This form will then be privately forwarded to the corresponding university.
P.D. Courses or Professional Development Courses are designed to give the student specific information on various topics that are needed to expand their skills, make them more viable in the workplace and enhance their expertise in one very specific area.
Personal Development Courses are wide ranging, and tailored to giving people a choice. Each course is outlined completely so that a prospective student can make an informed decision. The courses have a summary section outlining what the course covers, and topics and objectives of each course. Although teachers should always double-check with their school district Human Resource department, staff developer, or professional development coordinator, most of these courses are master's level classes. Therefore, they typically count towards mandatory continuing education, or Continuing Education Units (CEU's).
While Personal Development Courses are the newest feature of 360 Education Solutions, it is definitely not the only resource available on this website. Besides offering helpful information on scholarships and grants for educators, there is also an impressively comprehensive list of online degree programs offered. Since 360 Education Solutions is a true advocate for educators, they only partner with the most prestigious and highly accredited universities which also offer the lowest average cost per credit-hour available.
There is also comprehensive information describing how accreditation differs between 19 recognized institutional accrediting organizations, all of which are recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation of the United States Department of Education. Usually there are district requirements mandating Regional Accreditation that needs to be obtained for pay increases and professional advancement. All of 360 Education Solutions university partners are accredited by these six regional accrediting bodies. Regional accreditation is considered the standard accreditation for the majority of public and private universities.
