PCDI is a respected home study career school offering practical, professional-level career courses to students worldwide. When we opened our doors in 1987, we offered just one career training course: our Professional Real Estate Appraisal Program. Interest quickly grew, and we gradually expanded our course offerings. Today, you can choose from nearly fifty career training programs. In our James Madison High School, you may complete your high school education and earn your high school diploma.
Ashworth College provides the opportunity to earn a college degree to those who seek the flexibility of distance education. We are a nationally accredited, equal opportunity institution, providing students throughout the United States and abroad with the option of learning in the comfort and convenience of home. We accommodate individual students' work and family schedules, allowing each student the freedom to develop self-discipline, initiative, and practical study skills.
Distance education is an established, proven means of acquiring vital career skills. Every year, millions of people benefit from the efficiency and convenience of distance education courses.
Everything you need to complete your course of study, including textbooks, workbooks, study guides, and supplemental reference materials, arrives at your door. You'll learn at your own pace in the familiar and convenient surroundings of your home, without disrupting your current job, family activities, or leisure schedule. There are no long commutes to class, and no parking hassles either.
And speaking of costs, we think you'll agree that the education you receive from us is attractively priced, too. You'll save money by avoiding parking fees, housing costs, and other expenses associated with traditional institutions.
You'll take your exams with your books and notes open, and mail them to us whenever you're ready. There no unreasonable deadlines, and we'll never pressure you to finish. Most courses are designed to be completed within a year to 18 months. However, you may take longer or finish more quickly; it's up to you!
If you have questions or want to discuss something in your studies, feel free to write, fax, e-mail or call us any time. Our instructional staff will give you personal attention that will make you feel as if you're in a "classroom of one".
PCDI and Ashworth College are both nationally accredited members of DETC, the Distance Education and Training Council (1601 Eighteenth Street NW, Washington, DC 20009-2529; 202-234-5100).
