People who are looking to go into the teaching profession can never have enough education. While it takes a certain amount of personal growth, it is important that future educators have enough support in order to succeed in the profession.

Rio Salado College (RSC), which is part of the Maricopa Community College District, teamed up with The New York Times Knowledge Network to provide an online teacher preparation program for people who have already earned bachelor's degrees.

Academic officials said that this partnership would allow more future educators to prepare themselves for the job before they begin to teach students.

"Rio Salado College and The New York Times Knowledge Network are both innovators in higher education," said Chris Bustamante, president of Rio Salado College. "It is an exciting opportunity to work together to offer students the advantage of Rio Salado's proven teacher preparation program and the Knowledge Network's depth of content resources."

As the education sector is always changing, it is important that teachers stay informed on the current trends and make sure they are prepared to be a resource to their students.

Online program created for those looking for personal development in auditing

In order to achieve personal growth in a certain industry, it's key that individuals continually take courses in an effort to learn about the latest developments pertaining to the sector. Many people define personal development in their own way, for some it could mean furthering their education, for others it could be accomplishing a goal.

As a result, some companies have chosen to develop specific online programs that will allow professionals to learn as they go, which can be great for those who have to worry about their schedules but still want to perfect their craft.

Paul Valder Consulting Incorporated (PVC) announced a new online training program that will help educate those who want to get into internal auditing. The cost for the program, which will last approximately six hours, is $350 a person, or $1,250 for a group of five or more people.

Not only is this great for auditors themselves, but also for companies to use as a training device.

"After years of experience providing classroom training, I am excited to see this great alternative for companies to provide convenient, yet very effective training for their implementation and internal audit teams," said Cynthia Weber, director of training at PVC.
