Course Discontinuations and Replacements

Our catalog is constantly changing, but that’s a good thing! On August 17, 2018, we will retire three Advanced Career Training courses due to outdated content.

Read below about how you can supplement the following to-be-discontinued courses:

  • Principles of Green Buildings (GES711)

Students looking to start a career in building and sustainability can enroll in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) (GES784). Upon successful completion of this course, students will earn an internationally-recognized LEED Green Associate Credential. This credential, certified by the US Green Building Council, ranked #106 on the Burning Glass list of top certifications.

  • Performing Comprehensive Building Assessments (GES712)

Students looking to start a career in building assessment would benefit from learning inspection principles and standards of practice in the Home Inspection Certificate (GES704) course. Upon successful completion of this course, students will earn a National Home Inspector Examination (NHIE) certificate, administered by the Examination Board of Professional Home Inspectors.

  • Building Analyst Quick Start (GES717)

This course does not have an direct alternative, but our catalog offers numerous courses in the construction, environmental and energy, and trades industries that speak to current workforce demand.

What Partners Need to Do:

You do not need to take any action as the discontinued courses will be removed from your catalog automatically on the above-mentioned date. If you are not already offering the suggested alternative courses, they are currently available in the course catalog.

Fundamentals courses discontinued on August 29, 2018:

  • Photoshop Elements 12 for the Digital Photographer (p21) and Photoshop Elements 12 for the Digital Photographer II (p22) will be retired due to outdated curriculum and low enrollment. However, our Photoshop Elements for the Digital Photographer (p31) is continually updated and would be the better option for students interested in learning photo editing skills.

Advanced Career Training courses discontinued on September 7, 2018:

  • Certified SAS Base Programmer Certification Training (GES391) and Apache Cassandra Training (GES380) will both be cancelled due to outdated curriculum. Our Oracle SQL and PL/SQL Developer (GES 336) course is an ideal alternative for students looking to master database software and build their professional profile.

  • Advanced Hospital Coding and CCS Prep (Voucher Included) (GES104) will include the CCS certification examination voucher and course hours will increase from 80 to 100. There is no price increase for this course.

Discontinued Program: iOS App Developer

The following update is for partners that offer the iOS App Developer program in their catalog.

Due to a few recent changes in the industry, ed2go is removing the iOS App Developer program from the catalog until it can be updated to ensure that students are receiving the best possible training experience. Students who are interested in application development may consider the Android App Developer program or the Web Applications Developer program. Both courses provide a great foundation for a career in software development.

Students enrolling in the Android App Developer program will learn application development on the Android operating system (which covers about 88% of the global smartphone market) and can lead to many job opportunities. Students enrolling in the Web Applications Developer program will learn marketable skills they can include on their resume such as HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, SQL, PHP, XML, and Ajax.

 The iOS App Developer program will be removed from the catalog effective 6/30/17.
