Deciding to study an online course while juggling a full-time job can be a difficult decision to justify to some, especially as learning does command a fair amount of time.
Additionally, motivating why an employer should consider sponsoring your short course is often daunting as you need to clearly indicate the value that your new-found skills will bring to the business. You also need to back-up your choice with an accredited course such as the Wits DigitalCampus online short courses by demonstrating why our courses offer something you won’t get elsewhere.
