AMA University Online Education (AMA OEd) said it is offering an online program featuring short courses to enhance employee skills across various industries.
AMA OEd Technical Course Professor Josephine Casine said short courses are thought to be better suited to employed individuals as opposed to post-graduate programs.
“Unlike a degree or post-graduate program with educational attainment requirements, short courses do not have the same stringent requirements. They give anyone the chance to learn a specific subject matter that they are personally interested in or need for their job,” she said in a statement on Thursday.
AMA OEd offers short courses in foreign language proficiency, software, and management skills.
AMA OEd Head of Content Development Leohernard Quitaleg said people who complete the courses are given certificates.
“Aside from the skill and the knowledge, you also get… an additional credential to your resume that can help get you promoted at work,” he said. — Gillian M. Cortez
