Online Courses for Convenient Career Training

Are you unable to make it to one of our campus locations? When you enroll with us, you don’t have to get off your couch to train for your new career. We offer online classes where almost all the coursework can be completed at your Michigan, Indiana, or Ohio home on your own schedule.

Do you work best first thing in the morning? Are you currently working a full-time job and can only do schoolwork later in the day? With our online courses, we make it possible to learn when and where is best for you.

Some fields you can study completely online include:

What Does the Career Quest Advantage Look Like?

As an accredited career college with a focus on practical job training, we don’t focus solely on traditional book learning. We believe that in many cases, knowledge is best retained through hands-on work and real-world experiences.

We understand that career learning is more than what you read in the books, which is why we assist our students beyond the classroom. Our Career Services department is here to help you further prepare your career.

Here, you can get help starting your new entry-level position. You’ll find fresh job postings—some of which may be posted by our career partners—and job search tips. Once you find a posting that stands out to you, we can assist you with building a resume that will help you stand out from the crowd.

Did you get called in for a job interview? Give our Career Services department a visit again. Here, we can hold a mock interview. This way, you’ll feel as prepared as possible for your upcoming interview.

Other amenities of our Career Services department include:

  • Portfolio support
  • Certification preparation
  • On-site testing facility

What other advantages do we have in store for you?

  • Expediency: We believe that earning your certification and starting your new career shouldn’t take longer than it has to. Due to this, we offer courses that vary in length from three weeks to 14 months. With classes starting every few weeks, it’s never been easier to jump-start your new career.
  • Relevancy: Training and certification happen quickly thanks to our highly relevant curriculum. At Career Quest, we don’t offer “general education” classes. This helps reduce term length.
  • Advisory Board: We also have an advisory board that provides feedback on how relevant our curriculum is to their real-world work. This way, you can feel confident that you’re getting an education that’s fine-tuned to what you’ll be doing every day at work.
  • Tailored Learning: Sometimes, the best way to learn is by doing, which is why our classes offer hands-on instruction from our staff of industry-experienced instructors. What’s even better is that all our classes consist of 25 or fewer students. This way, you’ll get the one-on-one teaching and support that you deserve.
  • Externship Opportunities: Many of our programs offer real-world work experience through externship opportunities. With these, you’ll get hands-on experience in your chosen field that will look great on a resume.

A Wide Array of Programs

Is your skillset more technically focused? Do you crave a hands-on career? Or do you thrive in environments where you can put your compassion to work?

Our varied catalog of programs caters to these strengths along with all others in between. Choose to improve your professional life in one of these fields:

After graduating, some of our students have found work the Binder Park Zoo, the State of Michigan, and many more local employers.
