LeaderQuest is proud to announce that our courses are now eligible for credit in traditional higher education.
This past month, the American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT®) officially finished its evaluation and recommended 14 LeaderQuest courses for college credit. That means a class at LeaderQuest could count towards a traditional degree.
After helping over 1,200 students get certified in our IT schools last year, our staff is excited about what this will mean for students.
“We strive to help qualified IT professionals enter the workforce. This new development will empower our students on their path to employment and success.”
–George Cohlmia, LeaderQuest CEO
