When we are in full operations, we have our meetings in Monterey Park or Upland, California. Currently we are all working from home due to COVID-19. When things are safe, we will be returning to new offices in West Covina an Upland.
Are all of the programs in-person or online only?
All of our programs are available as self-paced (no live lecture, an instructor will grade your work though), Synchronous Online (Zoom lecture), or Traditional (In-Class). However, not all programs and courses have all options available. It will vary from course to course and time of year.
How often do classes meet if they are Synchronous or Traditional?
Classes meet twice a week for about two (2) hours per night or on Saturday mornings for four (4) hours. We are geared towards working adults and their hectic work schedules.
How long does it take to complete a whole program?
For a full diploma program, they are designed with five week courses (six week courses for the Leadership & Management program). The programs are designed to be completed in 35 weeks (60 weeks for the Leadership & Management Program). However, if you desire, you can complete the courses much faster by enrolling in self-paced courses and completing the work as a more brisk pace.
Do I need any prior education to enroll?
It varies for each program. The Office Administration and Supervision programs do not require prior higher education.
For the Marketing Specialist Diploma, it is recommended that a student has completed the Office Administration Diploma or completed some college coursework as the material is bit more advanced.
For the General Management Higher Diploma, it recommended that students have two years of supervisory experience or at least an Associate's Degree.
For the Advanced Diploma in Executive Leadership and Management, it is recommended that students have a Bachelor's Degree in any subject and two years of management experience. This is due to the advanced workload and topics covered.
