How to Get Job Training

There's nothing like a promotion or salary bump in a job you've worked hard at improving your status in.

Receiving a boost means that you've proven yourself better than the competition, you're capable of a more challenging job and prepared for what's to come.

While some skill sets are acquired through experience and hard work, there are other ways to get a leg up on your coworkers and competition in your field, all through studying and testing.

If you're not willing to shell out the time and money for a master's degree (which is quite a hefty investment), there are other certifications and degree enhancers that are available for you to receive.

But what's even better, is that many of these certifications can be studied for and received all from the comfort of your couch, as they're readily available online.

Because who has enough time allotted in their work life balance to sit through class?

Here are 7 certifications you can receive online that will instantly bump your salary potential:
