It is that time of year! Thoughts turn to turkeys, holiday gifts, and New Yearâ€™s resolutions. Resolutions are highly individual, but often include educational and professional goals. Some people will fulfill their resolutions and goals; others may not. One thing is certain; motivation is a necessary component to goal achievement!
Some people take very few risks in life because they are afraid of failing or making a mistake. But, the truth is, everyone makes mistakes. Sometimes the mistakes are trivial. At other times, they may prove costly. In nearly every case, however, there is something to be learned.
Students can save a substantial amount of money and time through participation in a Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) program. The fees associated with exams and portfolios are significantly less than tuition for a course.
As students reflect on their previous experience, many realize they have learned a lot on the job or when participating in civic or volunteer activities, hobbies, or other interests. Some of the knowledge, skills, and abilities acquired are equivalent to college level learning.
