My Ongoing Education
My ongoing education started in my home country of Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean. And it consisted of Primary or Elementary Education where I passed to gain access to Higher Secondary Education. I acquired a General Certificate of Education (GCE) in English Language, Mathematics, and British & European History.
Then, I furthered my education with Electrical Engineering Technology training. Correspondence courses in Advertising, Computer Programming, and Songwriting.
Migrating to New York, USA, I attended private school to learn Chinese Medicine, learning Acupressure, Chinese herbs, Feng-Shui, I-ching, and related topics.
During this time I took 2 correspondence course:
Electronic Music Technology with International Correspondence Schools;
Electronic Engineering Technology with a past correspondence school.
Relocating to Phoenix, Arizona, USA, in 2005, I acquired a Real Estate licence.
And then lots of personal research and self-taught myself Website Development, Music and Film, Desktop Publishing, Art, and Computer Programs or Software of the day – Microsoft Office, Photoshop, etc, etc.
Recently, I embarked on a journey of online learning. It involved subscribing to a membership and learning courses at Lynda.com. Courses included Adobe Acrobat to create PDFs and my eBooks; WordPress, WordPress Child Sites, Website design, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, and much more.
And even more recently, I took courses with Fizzle.com to make my this my Blog more effective and meaningful to you.
Now, I have signed on with greater passion taking Massive Open Online Courses – MOOCs. And I will be documenting my journey with you all as I look further down the road to get certified with degrees when this evolves.
So, as I take courses and complete assignments I will share my journey with you. And, hopefully you will be empowered also, that is, if you haven’t as yet. And all this will be available in my blog Category – My Ongoing Education. So, next articles will be actual courses I have completed already, and what I am studying at present.
