The Benefits Of Starting School Now Instead Of In The Fall 

Some things are worth waiting for, but when it comes to getting trained to enter a new profession or add qualifications for your current role, now is always better! With self-paced coursework and daily start dates for most of our certificate programs, Washington Technical Institute can get you started on a new career pathway as soon as you enroll. Many programs force you to wait to enroll until fall or with a cohort of classmates, but at WTI, we understand how precious your time is and how necessary it is to meet the needs of our busy, motivated students. 

Here are just a few of the advantages of now instead of later when it comes to enrolling at WTI.


One of the best advantages to our programs is the independence we give our students. Don’t get us wrong though; our instructors and staff are fully invested in your growth and success! At the same time, most of our programs provide you with a deadline for the completion of your certificate program along with the independence to determine for yourself when you will complete the work and how quickly you will finish your program. 


We know that everyone learns at a different pace, so whether you want to work through your program as quickly as you can or take the full amount of time allotted to you, we support your choice. No matter when you start your self-paced, flexible program, you can still take time off for planned events or spur of the moment adventures. A flexible program gives you the ability to continue to work, spend time with family and friends, and live your life.


Our online programs are available any time and anywhere you have access to the internet. This means that travel is still possible while you’re working through your courses. Your life doesn’t have to come to a screeching halt because you enrolled in school. You can work on course readings and most assignments directly from your phone, anywhere you go! This convenience gives you ample opportunity to successfully meet your program deadline.


The most obvious way that our programs provide the element of efficiency is with your time. Our certificate options give you a direct route to a new career or advancement in your current career. There are very few options like those WTI offers for students who want to move forward quickly and efficiently, giving you autonomy over your time and deadlines. 

On top of the value we place on your time, we’re also proud of how cost efficient our programs are. We offer monthly payment plans for our competitively priced programs, helping you achieve dreams that you might never have thought possible before. 


Washington Technical Institute’s self-paced, fully online certificate programs can be completed in a matter of months, most with daily start dates. Such flexible start dates make our programs unique and much more accessible for our students. Because we offer affordable pricing and monthly payments, we help our students leave school without debt. 

Although our goal is to help our students graduate their programs with little to no debt, we also recognize that some students might need to utilize a loan for their educational investment. We are excited to announce our partnerships with Climb Credit or Ascent, student lending companies focused on financing career-building programs. 

If you’re ready to enroll and start a certificate program, you can enroll online through our website. Still have questions about our programs? Feel free to call us at 800-371-5581 or text us at 952-465-3702. Our admissions specialists will be happy answer whatever questions you have.
