Features and Benefits
STUDENT FOCUSED TRAINING
We’ve shifted the focus from teaching and put it where it belongs, on learning. Recognizing that every person is an individual, the Integrated Learning™ System is effective enough and flexible enough to fit your particular learning needs.
Each lesson contains a clearly defined objective and tests the understanding of the content. If you do not fully understand the lesson, you can repeat it before moving on to the next one.
YOU DON’T NEED COMPUTER OR SPECIAL SKILLS
Whatever skills you have when you enroll, we can start you at the level that is right for you. Academy of Learning Career College will provide you with the learning tools that you need.
You can start right away and begin learning immediately.
LEARN AT YOUR OWN PACE
The exclusive Integrated Learning™ System allows you to learn at your own pace within your flexible committed guidelines. There’s no need to keep pace with other students.
LEARN THE BETTER WAY
Research shows that "Learning by Doing" is the most effective way to retain what we learn. By hearing something we remember 30%, by seeing it we remember 40%, but by doing it we remember 70%.
One-on-one facilitation instruction and monitoring support is provided by trained Learning Coaches who are available on site at all times.
Never miss a class or fall behind. If you need to miss a lesson you can take the same lesson at another time.
SAFE, Comfortable Learning Environment
There's no intimidating classroom atmosphere or student competition! We ensure a comfortable and friendly learning-environment for all our students.
Simply a Better Way to Learn!Our Integrated Learning System is fresh, modern and advanced.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know which diploma or certificate program will best suit me?

I absolutely LOVED that I could learn at my own pace and even ‘challenge’ courses. This flexibility enabled me to graduate three months ahead of schedule!
Thank you to the entire teaching staff at Academy of Learning Career College because of you I believe I can realize my dream.
Academy of Learning Career College really appealed to me due to the scheduling flexibility. Being on my own, I needed to work full time as I studied.
