TSTCYou is education that meets you where you are

How it works

TSTCYou gives you access to flexible learning through Performance-Based Education (PBE) that works with your busy schedule. Train to master valuable job skills that will lead you to the career and salary you deserve. Choose your path with multiple options for in-demand jobs in industries that offer great opportunities. Our focus is on your success — and getting you to work fast.

Move at a flexible pace

In TSTCYou programs, you will work in a self-directed manner. Take assessments when you are ready to prove your grasp of industry-relevant information. Your training works for you when you can break the mold of traditional education, which revolves around due dates and a single chance to earn a grade. Move at the pace that works best for your schedule and understanding, spending less time on assignments you have mastered and more time on the items that need your attention. As long as you complete all assessments at the appropriate level by the course completion date, you will be on the path to success. You will not be penalized for taking the entire session period — 5 weeks, 7.5 weeks or 15 weeks — to complete a technical course. General Academic courses will also be offered in 15-week sessions with the opportunity to accelerate.

Access coursework online

TSTCYou meets you where you are to make your training more flexible and accessible. In a TSTCYou program, all your course content is available online. Access it on your schedule and as you need. Ready to get to the finish line? Complete multiple lessons and successfully demonstrate your mastery of the skills and information. Need to pump the brakes? Take the time you need for your individualized training.

Master the skills

Feeling confident about the information you’re reviewing in the coursework? Cement your knowledge and apply your skills in the lab. Getting hands-on in a hybrid program is a perfect way to reinforce what you have learned — and get feedback from an instructor on your progress. In an online program? You can demonstrate your mastery on your device and connect remotely with an instructor. Your instructor will evaluate your assessment, and you can move on to the next competency. If your instructor determines that you need more time, no pressure. Circle back around on this competency and move forward once you are ready.

Work with Your Schedule

One thing you can always expect in life is the unexpected. Going back to school to earn a degree can seem daunting, especially if you are supporting your family. That’s why TSTCYou works for you, offering you the ability to fit your training into your busy life. The flexibility of how you spend your time — and when — is a powerful resource to help you complete your training and get started in a great career.

Set Your Start and Finish Lines

With TSTCYou, you can schedule when you start — and finish — your program. If your schedule keeps you from starting at the beginning of a semester, you can jump in at week six as long as you complete your courses by the end of the semester. Full-time status is possible. If you complete your courses ahead of schedule, you do not have to wait until the end of the semester to finish. Exit the program early — and get to work sooner.
