If you can't take time out to study, or don't want to be out of the workforce while you upskill, then online or distance learning with ITC is perfect for you.

Distance learning is just that. Studying at a distance. Not in a College, but connected to one, via phone, mail, fax, or internet. You are never far from help or support, and you no longer have to travel to upskill or gain new qualification if you choose not to.

Studying Online means you can study when you like, where you like - anywhere there's a computer. The internet connects us with you, and our online learning systems provide you with all the help you need to gain the qualification you need and the job you want.
