Why You Should Start Studying in the Summer

Posted by Chelsea Noel on July 18, 2017 in Healthcare Documentation Online Learning

So you’re considering a career change and you’re going to need training. While school semesters typically begin in September and January, it might seem like the obvious choice to wait until then to enroll. And if you have children, starting then may seem like the only choice, leaving you with more time to spend on your studies while your children are away at school. But what if you work full-time and have children? Sure, you can study in the evenings while the little ones are asleep, but are you really wanting to sacrifice what little downtime you can have? When you have the ability to learn from home, there are a lot of considerations to take in.

Let’s slow down for a second. Think about this: Most courses begin with the easiest material and gradually get more difficult. The first couple months are usually dedicated to introductory lessons and plenty of reading. If you’re taking a year-long course (instead of a typical semester-long course) and begin in either September or January, you’re most likely going to tackle the most difficult part of the course right when the sun comes out, the warm weather hits, and your children are out of school. But what if instead, you started studying in the summer months (June, July or August)?

Take our Medical Transcription / Healthcare Documentation course for example. If you start in June, by the time summer ends and grade school begins, you’ll be just starting the more difficult sections of the course getting ready to graduate and begin working from home by the following summer. If you start in July or August, you will just be getting into the medical chapters of the course by September.

It gets better… If you have a laptop or tablet, it is even easier to begin studying in the summer AND enjoy family time. Picture this: you are sitting on the beach, enjoying the beautiful weather, the sun is beating down, and there is a light breeze with not a cloud in sight. While your children are playing, you decide to pull out your Kindle to do some reading. You open up your course eBook, and you learn.

By beginning a course now and studying in the summer, you’ll get to enjoy everything that is great about the summer while moving towards a new, fulfilling career in Medical Transcription / Healthcare Documentation. Learn from home and earn from home so you never miss any of life’s greatest moments.
