Education is often the key to greater Self-Reliance but it does not in itself guarantee a successful career or profitable business. Take the time to determine what the best course of study or training would be for you. Some of the questions you should ask yourself are:
1. What skills do I need to meets my employer's needs?
2. How can I network or make the connections that will lead me to working with the company or organization I desire?
3. What should I know about the current job market?
4. How can I evaluate my training options or programs of study?

Whichever course of study you decide upon consider verifying whether it is from an accredited school. Accredited programs often can be transfered to other schools if you decide on more advanced training. http://www.accreditedschoolsonline.org/
