One program offered to students is a two-year program that would allow them to get into the field a lot quicker. The program teaches students laws and regulations but has a lack of actual in-field experience.
While the provides the opportunity to make money fast, as well as accumulate less debt, it also means more work will be required of them once they are hired in order to fully grasp the responsibilities associated with the position.
Another option available is the four-year program. The four-year program not only gives students more time to learn but also provides them with opportunities for in-field experience and internships that can lead to better career opportunities post-graduation. The drawback however is the lack of income that comes from the internships and the additional money needed to stay in college.
