Your New Career Starts Today at Washington Tech!

Your new year starts today! With 2023 approaching so quickly, if you want to make a New Year’s Resolution to start a new career when the ball drops on New Year’s Eve, then one of Washington Technical Institute’s 4 or 8 month self-paced online certificate programs is a straighforward way to make that happen. You can complete the programs on your own time, and if you get done early, your new career pathway will become a reality even sooner. 

Here are a few of the options that will open new career opportunities for you in a few short months:

National Paralegal Certificate

Working in a law office, paralegals must be organized and have a keen eye for details. Although you can get an entry-level position as a paralegal and complete on-the-job training, you stand out and are much more competitive if you come to the job market with some training. When you’re new in a field, showing that you’ve taken the initiative for training is impressive to hiring committees.

This 15-credit program 8 months in length, but students are encouraged to finish as early as they’d like.  You’ll get a great introduction to law and legal research and writing. We’ll also train you about legal ethics, civil litigation, and business organizations law. If you’re looking for office work in a law firm or corporate setting, then a role as a paralegal is the perfect opportunity for you.

Business Management & Leadership Certificate

A certificate in business management and leadership is the right move for someone happy in their current field but looking for an opportunity to move upward. Maybe you know that one of the leaders in the company will be retiring soon or you’ve heard that a manager is moving on to another position at the start of the new year. Perhaps you’ve watched coworkers leave for management positions while you stayed in the same role. When you earn a certificate in management, you are proving that you can take charge of your future and understand the leadership skills it takes to move into an advanced position.

This certificate is 15 credits, and you’re given 8 months to complete it. You can work on the coursework anywhere that you have an internet connection, and as with most of your programs, you can finish early if you’ve got the time and dedication to complete the work. The five classes that you’ll complete give you a great introduction to the principles of business and management, cover basic economics and managerial accounting, as well as business ethics. With that type of background, you’re sure to wow any hiring team with your knowledge as you walk through your talking points.

Pharmacy Technician Certificate

Pharmacy Technicians work alongside pharmacists and are in high demand in pharmacies around the country. Along with direction instruction for this 5-month certificate program, you complete some externship hours in a local pharmacy of your choice so that you graduate with the written knowledge as well as the practical experience to start a new career in a short amount of time. 

With training about how to calculate and measure prescriptions, pharmacy law, medical terminology, and sterile techniques, our pharmacy tech program even prepares you for the Certified Pharmacy Technician exam if you were to choose to sit for it. The text-based lessons and hands-on experience will prepare your resumé to stand out compared to other, less experienced candidates.

Programming Languages Certificate

IT certificate programs are a popular and fast-paced way to make your way into a quickly expanding, secure, and lucrative career. If you’re tech savvy with a foundational understanding of computer systems, a career working with programming languages is right around the corner through our Programming Languages Certificate Program. Industries across the board need knowledgeable professionals with a solid understanding of coding and programming. The graduation rate of programmers can’t keep up with the high demand for people to fill the spots.

This certificate is on an 8-month timeline, but because it’s self-paced, you can finish more quickly than that as well. You’ll learn about JavaScript, Java programming, C++, HTML, Python, and more. You don’t need a four-year college degree to get started as a developer, so get signed up today and make it happen by the start of the new year!

Washington Technical Institute

Washington Technical Institute’s fully online certificates can be completed in a matter of months, with daily or bi-weekly start dates. Such flexible start dates make these programs unique and much more accessible for our students. An additional benefit of WTI’s programs is that we offer affordable pricing and monthly payments to 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.
