Learn at your place and pace
Online education is worth the investment. Virtual courses and degree programs are more flexible and more straight forward than their equivalents in formal schooling. The great thing about online learning is that you can practice comfortably learn at your place and pace, even though you don't want to be accredited. All you need is a love for learning and a quick online quest and live webinar that will lead you in the right direction. Since that stage on, you'll be the master of your own life.
