ABOUT ACHIEVE TEST PREP () Achieve Test Prep helps students seeking any college degree achieve the degree in far less time using a Credit-by-Examination path. As our slogan states, "Less Time, Less Money - Same Degree." The traditional college path takes lots of time and money. There's all the homework, quizzes, research projects, essays, and term projects. And let's not forget about the expensive tuition fees and really expensive books. The Achieve path is the smarter, faster, more affordable way to earn a college degree. Half the cost of a college education is paying for unnecessary or redundant general education courses that have nothing to do with the major. The Achieve way means finding the accredited college that will give maximum credit for any courses already taken and will allow the student to test-out of most of the other required general education courses. So it's a short-cut to any degree. Achieve begins by first evaluating a student's past courses and work experience and then finds the most efficient path to the desired degree by cross-referencing over 350 accredited colleges and universities. For each student, we eliminate an average of 8 college courses that no longer need to be taken, which results in the student obtaining the degree much quicker. Benefits of Achieve's Credit-by-Examination Program:Take easier and shorter test-prep classes compared to taking difficult college courses.Testing-out means earning your degree a lot sooner and for a lot less.Receive the support and structure of LIVE classes with real teachers - local or online.Use just one condensed, thin, FREE book per class.Our student's average pass rate is about 93%.Virtually all colleges and universities support credit-by-examination.

The Teacher Assistant position is a work-study job given to a student of Achieve who is also interested in using our credit-by-examination program to achieve his/her own degree. While the work-study position will help offset some of the tuition costs of our program, it will not pay for all of the costs (for greater earning potential, see the Instructor position).

We pay $15 to $18 per hour for this position. General Education Instructor Position (full-time or part-time) Our General Education classes are offered virtually online or at a campus location.

Company Description:

Achieve Test Prep: Less time. Less money. Same degree.

Our tagline says it all. Achieve is like no other educational organization out there.

Colleges and universities are out of control with ever-increasing tuition fees and expensive text books. While at the same time, they ask students to take online classes that aren't even taught by live instructors.

Achieve offers a unique solution. Our Credit-by-Examination program helps student get maximum credit for past courses and also test-out of many unnecessary general education courses.

We also advocate on behalf of students by reviewing hundreds of accredited colleges to find out which one offers each student the most efficient path to their desired degree.

And both Achieve's campus based and online test prep courses are taught LIVE by teachers who are very experienced at helping students pass their 'test-out' exams on the first try.

In fact, Achieve provides coaching and support every step of the way to graduation.
