Hello fellow a.netters, I am recovering from a motorbike accident and basically I have nothing to do for the next two or three months. Since I don't want to completely waste this time, I was planning to some sort of on-line course, something which can help in the future for a job. Since I'm planning to move to the UK or Australia once I'm back on my feet, I'd like to do something which is recognised in these two countries.
Like many of us here, my dream is to find a job in the aviation industry but I haven't been lucky so far. Last year I completed a Master of Transport Management at the University of Sydney and I'm looking now for an on-line course in one of these areas:
- An advanced English language course (my English is OK but there is always more to learn);
- A Personal Trainer Course (I know that this sounds strange especially because I am walking with crutches right now, but gym and fitness is also a passion of mine and I could turn this into a hobby/part-time job);
- Some sort of Aviation Operations/Management course.
Any suggestion for a course in these or other areas is more than welcome!

The Open University (www.open.ac.uk) has plenty of courses, though they can be expensive. I don't know anyone who's done them, but a friend is a lecturer on Creative Writing courses - distance learning, they do study weekends as well. Obviously it is recognised in the UK!

Thanks guys, I had a look at the Open University and they are offering several nice undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Since I already have a Master degree, I was looking for something shorter. I know that having two Master degrees is not a bad thing but completing another degree is going to take too long.
