As many of you know, my son is currently in the Navy.
He wants to start his education and persue his goal of getting a degree as Registered Rad Tech.
However, being in the Navy means he'll be deployed at times for six month stretches at sea. He wants to sign up for classes at the local college to start his education, but is wondering how will he be able to do this if and when he gets deployed. They can't do online courses aboard ship, but are there any "distance learning" options he could persue for those times he's out at sea? Would his instructors be able to give him assignments, etc. he could complete on ship and turn in when he returns, or are there any "distance" programs he could avail himself of during these times.. other than "online".
He doesn't want to just "waste" those 6 month periods here and there while he's on shipduty, but wants to be able to continue his education.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
