Post Adult Education Courses for Retirees
by: Stephen Gatlin

Traditionally, we think of retirement as a well-deserved exit from the workforce to spend time traveling, reading and relaxing. However, many people today look for additional employment opportunities after retiring from work. In fact, AARP International says that companies around the world are making work more attractive and flexible by offering adult education, skills training and incentives to enable older people to work past retirement. Here are the top industries retirees are looking for training in to earn extra income and keep their post-retirement years active.

1. Healthcare

The healthcare industry is one of the world’s largest and fastest-growing industries and consumes over 10 percent of gross domestic product of most developed nations. With abundant job openings and convenient scheduling, this is a great industry for retirees. In a medical coding career, retirees can enjoy flexible hours, high pay and have the option of working in a medical office or from home. They will need a strong knowledge of the ICD-10 coding system as well as industry-specific computer software, so make sure to offer online courses that allow them to brush-up in these areas.

2. Information Technology

Increased connectivity around the world has been essential to the IT industry’s growth in the current economic crisis. According to the 2008 Global Information Technology Report, Denmark and Sweden and are leading the industry, followed by the United States and Singapore. Many companies today are raising the base pay for new hires and offering additional bonuses to recruit applicants. With computer knowledge that they have gained in previous positions along with the online training you offer, retirees can find success in a wide variety of IT jobs. Software developer, network manager, web developer and help desk analyst are just a few of the numerous career options available in this industry.

3. E-business

After years of answering to other people, retirees can now be their own boss! Launching an online business can be a great way to show entrepreneurial spirit while earning extra cash. According to the European e-Business Market Watch, e-business is maturing in every sector and plays a critical role in securing tomorrow’s economy. Be sure to offer e-business training for retirees who need additional expertise on starting a company. These adult education courses can help students organize plans for electronic retailing, develop marketing strategies and design a Web site that will attract customers.

4. Casino Gaming

A gaming career not only pays well, but it has all the excitement and glamour to spice up post-retirement life. This industry doesn’t limit job opportunities to Las Vegas, but retirees can apply in various cities all over the world. Offering casino training through your online programme can allow retirees to brush up on game skills and build a video portfolio to use in their job search.
