First, I'm 100% unfamiliar with all types of computer training and education, so I'm counting on you guys to cut me some slack on this. A long time friend of ours wants to change careers and earn a certificate, diploma, or associates degree "in computers." It needs to be 100% online and financial aid eligible. He is not a great candidate for credit by exam, and doesn't care about the cost- because he plans to take out as many student loans as he can. :chairfall: After a couple days of going around with him about student loan debt, I've given up on that battle and have tried to send him a few potential programs. He messaged me back today that the programs I'm sending him are wrong - what I'm sending him are all variations of computer science. What he wants is: 1) Computer Support Specialist 2) Computer Technology 3) Computer Support Technician Those are all quotes of the thing he wants to study from different parts of our conversation. As a non-computer person, I honestly have no idea if those titles all mean the same thing or if they're different. In any event, I *almost* stepped away until he messaged me and told me he found a perfect program at UoP. So, before I give up, I'd love to do a bit more research away from the for profits for him, but I'm kinda over my head. Can anyone suggest a program / school to consider? Is this the kind of field where Penn Foster might be a fit? I can tell you with 100% certainty he has no intention of getting a 4 year degree.
