About Distance Education & Learning Online

The CD-ED program includes all the theory and practical training of traditional learning, without the strict schedule, costly commute or rigid lesson plans of traditional learning.

But it’s not right for everyone.

Online Learning requires discipline and time management skills. We recommend students be able to devote 20 hours per week to their course.

Our student website ensures that you’ll never feel alone, with access to course-wide discussions, live chats and a private messaging system that allow you to interact with as many (or as few!) fellow students as you wish. Plus, you have access to and continual interaction with your instructors.
