Alcohol Awareness Classes Online Might Be a Convenient Choice for Military Personnel

April 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 133

Education is an important element of human life. That is why online alcohol classes might be a good choice for military personnel. It is a chance to equip uniformed people with information about the ills of an alcoholic lifestyle. The awareness program looks at a number of elements that revolve around alcoholism such as why people use this substance, signs and symptoms of alcoholism, the societal problems resulting from substance abuse as well as the health risks.

The training also looks into effects of alcoholism on social interactions and economic undertakings. This training can be part of the rehabilitation program for armed forces personnel or for awareness to prevent overindulgence. The successful participants receive a certificate indicating the areas covered.

According to a study by the University of Minnesota, the armed force harbors active drinkers most of them aged between 17 and 25. The results of that study were shocking because they showed that about 43% of the officers in active duty overindulged millions of times. These actions led to several crimes such as drunken driving, domestic violence, or absconding official duties. There were several reports of officers raping and killing family members during the Iraq and Afghanistan mission. This led to a complete ban of alcoholic drinks in the army camps.

Some of the reasons given for overindulgence include stress resulting from the working conditions especially when out of the country and the need for adventure. The problems resulting from an alcoholic lifestyle include diseases like heart disease and ulcers as well as social problems especially conflicts with family members and spouses.

These problems can be alleviated through internet training programs to raise awareness. Features of the Internet Training Program include:

· Progress reports indicating a participant's improvement in the coursework. This monitors the progress of the individual which gauges the performance.

· Customer support to assist students in finding their course material and guiding them on how to use enroll and use the relevant web page.

· Classes are offered on a 24 hour basis.

· Nationally recognized certification

Benefits of Internet Learning

The armed forces personnel can study on the internet because of the flexible schedules. The classes have different intervals and durations, and they are available both day and night. In addition, the courses have different durations each attracting a different fees For example, a person can select from the 8, 12, 20 or 24 hour classes.

Further, internet studies eliminate additional expenses common with the traditional learning process. For instance, there are no transport and accommodation expenses. Instead, the participant only needs an internet enabled computer. This learning process is private. Prying friends and family do not need to know unlike it is the case with traditional classrooms. In particular, people who have been pushed to this course because of underlying alcoholic tendencies may feel humiliated if their friends find out and that is why learning on the internet is preferred because it does not interfere with daily activities. From Camp Pendleton to Texas online classes to Virginia, this is a good choice for military personnel.
