Bridgepoint opens new division targeting professionals seeking certification
Under continual fire for saddling students with debt while spending more on marketing than education and lately accused of preying on African-Americans, San Diego’s Bridgepoint Education has announced that it’s branching out from its for-profit degree programs and adding a unit targeting white collar workers seeking business certifications or continuing education credits required for maintaining professional licenses.
Denver Learning Institute, Bridgepoint’s latest venture, will offer courses “designed for students who seek the knowledge necessary to complete national certification exams in information technology, business, project management, and health care,” according to a June 10 release.
As with other companies under the Bridgepoint umbrella, most classes will be offered online. Pricing ranges from $400 for courses to prepare for LEED green building exams to $1,600 for an IT course in Java certification.
