This allows them to offer direct feedback so you can lay a solid educational foundation and build upon it throughout your career. In addition to classroom lectures and instructor office hours, we offer free tutoring to support your learning and give you the knowledge and skills you need to succeed.

Hands-on Training

In addition to free tutoring, we offer you hands-on training to build your confidence and practice your trade. Each program includes lab hours that allow you to put theory into practice with strict supervision by instructors. You will also use industry-standard equipment to complete real-world tasks. The same equipment you use during your new job in healthcare, business, or the trades.
