What Education and Training Is Best for Your Client?

Helping your client choose the right school or training program can be exciting but challenging. The resources here can guide you and your client as you find the right fit.

Your clients may so many questions when they first approach you for information. What should they choose: a certificate, diploma, degree, or apprenticeship program? How will the program they choose affect employment opportunities and earning abilities? Which options should they choose?

To begin, it may be useful to ask your clients why they want to take an education or training program. If they know where they want the training to take them, it's much easier to decide which program will get them there.
