Lara, I would say if you are trying to complete is short amount of time that you would benefit from an online course. You can work as fast or slow as you want on line as long as you complete in the required amount of time. (usually six month deadline) Most of the local schools will have an on line version of their class. I took my classes on line through proeducate.com They are not available in all states but look them up and see if you can do this class in your area. I hope this helps!
