Online Dog Training Studies – Enhancing Education with a Modern Student Center added to Traditional Learning
We are excited to be at the forefront of an education revolution. In addition to time spent with a mentor and a beautiful set of printed materials and videos, your course of study includes access to our online Student Center, filled with custom videos and interactive questions. Our course combines online dog trainer modules with traditional hands-on work, and this is very popular with our students – for good reason. Online education programs are becoming increasingly popular for many disciplines, and with good reason. Research shows that online education has tremendous value when compared to traditional face-to-face schooling. The CATCH online dog trainer center gives you the advantage of convenience and flexibility (study with an interactive quiz or watch a video anywhere), while your printed Study Guide and hands-on experience provides you with practical learning and guided mentorship. This combination provides the best of both online education and experiential learning.
Research from the U.S. Department of Education and Edudemic.com:
- “According to the U.S. Department of Education, online classes aren’t just an acceptable alternative to traditional education; they’re actually better. “Students in online conditions performed modestly better, on average, than those learning the same material through traditional face-to-face instruction.” 1, 2
- “People have tended to view online education as a more convenient and flexible education option to traditional classes. And while those things are true, online education is starting to look a lot more promising for improving education outcomes…” 1
- “…College presidents are ahead of the curve, with a recent Pew Poll reporting that a majority of college presidents feel that online university options offer the same value as traditional classroom courses.” 1, 3
The CATCH Professional Dog Trainers Course blends beautiful printed materials with online learning, hands-on activities and personal mentorship to maximize the student experience and development of critical skills.
