Are all online courses the same? 

Myth: All online courses are the same. 

Reality: Not all online courses are the same!

This makes it much more enjoyable to learn and easier to understand the course content!

Myth #1


Is taking online courses settling for a lesser education? 

Myth: Taking online courses is settling for a lesser education. 

Reality: The Mariners Learning System content is comparable to that found in face-to-face classrooms in terms of material covered.  

Only it surpasses the classroom atmosphere by providing various methods of learning. You can listen to audio lectures, watch training videos, or read from the companion workbook.  

With Mariners Learning System you learn at your own pace at your own time. Whereas in classrooms, since people take in information at different speeds, some feel held back while others can’t keep up.
