I think that online learning is a technology that is going to become very prevalent in the near future. The value of online learning was demonstrated to me while studying for my college degree from a school that offered online coursework. This style of teaching and learning requires a very committed mindset and is not for everyone. The upside is that the person who invests the time and effort to master this learning style will enjoy the ability to learn anything, anywhere, and at anytime.

I love online learning programs. I am mother of two very energetic boys. Time is not always on my side. The online learning programs give you a sense of ease and being able to work at your own paste. My mornings are very hectic dropping kids off at two different schools, running errands, and than sports in the afternoon. There is not a lot of time in the day for mommy to get an education. The evenings after 9 p.m. until 1 in the morning are the perfect times for me. This ProPI program works great with my schedule as well as furthering my education.

Totally agree! ProPIAcedemy has been the perfect learning solution, as I progress toward Georgia's requirement for 70 hours of education for obtaining Private Detective licensing.

As an update to my previous post, I just passed the State of Georgia Agency Examination yesterday. The ProPI Academy course definitely provided a focus on the proper material that would be tested. Bear in mind, the State Board Exam is not so much about memorization, but thinking logically and intuitively, to apply the concepts learned in the prep course and in your life's experience. I'm convinced that the ProPI Academy course provided the material that pushed me over the top to a passing score. Thanks again for a well-designed course!

Online learning has allowed me to complete both this course as well as additional college credits. My schedule requires a fair amount of travel and without the ability to complete continuing education remotely it would not be possible to move forward. The ability to log in from a hotel or airport while waiting for an inevitably delayed flight is a huge resource. I find that the lack of a traditional classroom in no way hinders the educational experience so long as you dedicate the time and commit yourself to the material. As in most things, the effort you put in is reflected in the result you can expect.

Online learning has proven to be a great tool in the busy life of a single mom and student. Having the experience to obtain my Master's as well as this course was uncomfortable at first but once I was adjusted to what I needed to do and what was expected of me It helped a lot. Having the resources where you can log in from anywhere and work on assignments any time of the day is great but I am an in your face type of person and prefer the class room setting to learn but online is best if your schedule does not permit.

Online learning is a valuable tool to those who have many things in their lives going on where they may not have the time to attend class. I have been an online student in the past in which i obtained my Masters Degree in Criminal Justice. It terrified me at first for it was new to me and challenging. Once I learned how beneficial online learning could be for me it became my best friend. Being afforded the opportunity to complete school at any location at any given time allows for time management. Online learning has proved to me that this was another challenge that I was able to defeat so much that I am still enrolled in yet another class obtaining a graduate certificate in Security Management along with the Pro PI Academy. I was one who really did not like school but I have done so well that I have received nothing less than a 3.8 in obtaining my adult education. I thank the program for my opportunity and hope this helps others to achieve their goals.

I have enjoyed taking the online classes with the academy. I find the convenience the biggest benefit. I can log in whenever I want and don't have to be on anyone's schedule. Also, my instructor is available whenever I have questions or concerns. I also like the feeling of being accountable for all the required material and learning on my learn. I am a self-learner and thrive when I work alone and that's why I think internet learning is something I will always do.

This being my first opportunity to work within an online learning environment, I am extremely satisfied with the experience. As most people have said, the ability to work at your own pace is an important advantage; with an unconventional schedule this is by far the best way to go about a course like this.
10/5/2015 07:54:03 pm
Online learning is beneficial because of the flexibility of time. I can review the presentations and turn in my assignments without the nagging pressure of a typical classroom setting.

I am so pleased at the quality of this course and the variety of material!! The instructors are outstanding and available. I have learned more about the field of private investigations in a few days, than I have learned in my entire lifetime!! Propiacademy is just wonderful and I cannot say how pleased I am!!!

Online learning is beneficial because I can go at my own pace. Having a fulltime job, and a fulltime family, this course has allowed me to set my own pace and provided the ability for achieving the ultimate goal. In the online setting, instructor response plays a big role in the student's ability to grasp information. The instructor has been great with responding to emails and questions and that helps refocus where I need to spend my time.

The online format of the course offered by ProPI Academy has been tremendous in allowing me the flexibility to review, study and test at my own pace. It has taken longer than I originally planned to complete the materials, but if this were a traditional brick and mortar institution I would have had to given up long ago. In the past I have participated in distance learning and online education. Those experiences, along with the excellent support from my primary instructor gave me the confidence to overcome any apprehensions I may have had when beginning this course. I would recommend online learning and in particular ProPI Academy to anyone interested in becoming certified within the investigative and security industry.

This was my first on-line class. Did not know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. The course was very thorough and challenging. If it were not on-line, I do not think that I would have been able to complete the class. It is really nice being able to work the class into your life instead of having a structured schedule.

I like that online learning allows you to adapt the lessons to your own unique learning styles. I like that this particular course was challenging and comprehensive while still presenting in an online format.
5/5/2017 03:59:31 pm
Taking this class online was one of the best educational experiences that I have had. Being online made the course easier to do because I could fit it into my schedule and I didn't have to rush through any of it. If I had questions, all I had to do was go back to where that section was covered and I could hear it again. The people at PI Academy were great. There was always someone there to answer any questions that I had whenever I called.

I am currently a student at GA Gwinnett College in Lawrenceville and the online learning platform is used at the University as well. The classes that I have used this in were a 50/50 mix of online learning and in class teaching as well. However, the online learning for that and for this as well is very beneficial if you can devote the time to it. Being a husband, father, and trying to balance those things as well as college, family life and embarking on a new adventure in the business I loved online learning The work was there always, and it was always available when I could set the time to do it and at my pace. The course also saves the money and time that is involved on your budget and time away from home. So thank you for providing the opportunity for this and it was greatly appreciated.

As a first time participant in the on-line learning arena, the overall experience was very rewarding. Having the flexibility to view the presentations and then being able to go back and review topics for clarity was a major plus. The course was also structured in a way that allowed for independent research and analysis of related subject material to enhance the learning experience. The course was well organized, challenging and created an "active learning environment" that complimented my learning style.

The ability to re-review the material as many times as you want, as well as being able to control the pace of your own individual learning are two of my favorite things about online training.
