Penn Foster College has been accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council, a nationally recognized accrediting agency.  The school is also accredited by the Commission on Secondary Schools of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Penn Foster College has been involved in distance education since 1957.  However, while at one time all distance learning was a time consuming “snail mail” process, the development of modern technology has made it even easier for students to complete educational programs from the comfort of their own homes.

The Penn Foster Career program consists of 10 modules that will give you exposure to the most important elements of drafting and architecture.


Electrical/ Mechanical Engineering
If you want to get onto the track toward a high paying career and have the time to earn the degree, and the mathematical inclination, you will want to check out Penn Foster College’s electrical engineering or mechanical engineering programs. Engineers often earn as much as $70,000 a year and may start at $30,000 or more. The Penn Foster Career School’s online engineering programs are associate degree programs intended to train you to be a technical assistant. The assistants do most of the engineering “grunt” work and get paid substantially less than the engineer, but you can get the associate degree in two years. Then you will be eligible for employment while completing a full engineering degree.


Medical Coding and Billing is a popular education program at numerous institutions because it is usually structured to allow you to learn the skills and obtain your certificate or degree more quickly than your average medical program. The Penn Foster Career School program in Medical Coding and Billing will help you master the tasks of claims filing, record keeping, and will also introduce you to Law and Ethics in Medicine along with several other medical topics.


Pharmacy Technicians work with a licensed pharmacist to help prepare prescriptions, interact with customers, take orders from doctors or customers over the phone, and file insurance claims. The pharmacy technician diploma can be earned in as little as 3 to 6 months. The typical salary isn't the dream paycheck, but the Penn Foster Career program can help launch you into a career that can help pay the bills while—if desired— you pursue additional training to eventually become a full fledged pharmacist.
