Editor's review

As distance learning courses go this is a very interesting one but one that caters for an important need none the less. In this respect I think it does a pretty good job. We live in slightly more enlightened times these days when it comes to some types of crime and for a lot of misdemeanours a brief educational course rather than a spell in prison is often the outcome of a Court hearing. This one, as the title clearly indicates, is aimed at stopping those found guilty of theft from re-offending. The meaning of the word theft in this instance covers the likes of shoplifting and petty larceny so if you’re thinking of holding up your local bank at gunpoint don’t think you’ll get away with just a few hours study if you get caught.

Anyone who has had a brush with the law and finds themselves on the wrong end of a guilty verdict for shoplifting or petty larceny will in a lot of cases be instructed to take a course on the subject. This website has a variety of them covering several aspects and requirements however it is vital to check with the Court in question if a distance learning model is acceptable.

If it is then there is no need to attend any classroom and the course can be done at a pace suitable for the user but obviously in line with the Court ruling. There are no papers to download and everything is done online so all that’s needed is a PC with internet access. Courses do not have to be completed in one sitting and the system will remember how far a user has reached at each log-in.

The costs range from $99 for a 4 hour course to $319 for 24 hours and a completion certificate is awarded at the end. Areas covered include the effects of theft on others in society and offers techniques to handle impulse control. As an alternative to prison I think it’s a steal.

Conclusion

With distance learning being the way to go in a number of areas today it makes complete sense to provide this type of course available online. I will say again though that it is vital to check that the Court will accept your course before you do any study or pay any fees. There is a money back guarantee but it won’t cover you if you haven’t bothered to ask.
