Nine New Certificate Programs at Bryant Stratton College

Bryant & Stratton College has launched nine new online certificate programs. These are: 21st Century Business Management, Accounting, Certified Financial Planning, Criminal Justice, Healthcare Management, Human Resources Management, Medical Office Technology, Medical Reimbursement (Billing) and Medical Reimbursement & Coding.

The certificates can be completed in nine months and are designed to prepare students for positions in business, healthcare, human resources and criminal justice fields. Course credits for the certificate programs can go towards a corresponding degree program at the college. And upon completion of the certificates, students receive a free session with an advisor to discuss their career aspirations.

"Jobs that only require a high school diploma are disappearing, so to compete for positions in this modern economy, everyone needs to make sure they have up-to-date skills," said Scott Traylor, director of admissions for online education. "These new online certificate programs offer students an opportunity to quickly gain the training necessary to qualify for positions in some of the fastest growing fields."

Tuition for the certificates range from $2,500 to $5,000. On Wednesday, March 10 at 7:00 p.m. (EST), the college is hosting a free webinar for students interested in the new programs. To register, go to .

Bryant was founded 150 years ago to provide career training. Today it has 15 campuses in New York, Ohio, Wisconsin and Virginia. For more info about the program in general see, http:// .
