About Distance Education & Learning Online

Online Education has grown enormously over the past 10 years and is recognized by employers as equivalent to traditional classroom training. The CD-ED program includes all the theory and practical training of traditional learning, without the set 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 program.

“CD-ED has completely changed my outlook on distance education. The instructors are very helpful and supportive – they want you to do well. The course materials were extremely focused and each module gives you the tools and skills you need to succeed in the work place. I would definitely recommend CD-ED to anyone who is ready to change their life!”
