We are a private vocational school providing short certification-eligible health care courses for 25 years. Small class sizes gives the student more access to instructors and time for practicing skills. Our location is in Lombard accessible to three major expressways. We cater to the student who has other responsibilities (family, job, etc.) and also to those planning to go into nursing careers, therapy careers, dialysis careers, physician assistant career, etc. The instructors have advanced degrees and certifications in their area of expertise and most have more than 15 years experience in their field.

Most phone us with questions, or send an application through our website. The new student is invited to come to the school at a time convenient for them. The visit includes tour of the school, discussion of courses of interest, and if ready, to fill out the application paperwork.

Yes, our pricing system is standardized. We do not work off of an "ala carte" system where each required object is charged separately. Our courses include: textbook (to keep); workbook (as available from publisher); ALL LAB FEES; study materials for certification exams; etc.
First studied Vocational Education at University and received degree: "BA/Ed". Other teachers took a State of Illinois required teaching course for their subject area.
We have worked with men and women ages 16 to 65. We closely adher to federal Affirmative Action code and Title IX regarding nondescrimination. We also comply with Civil Rights Act, and The Americans with Disabilities Act. To be fair to all the students an English reading teast is given before admission (unless the student already has college credits). For some of our courses, a high school diploma or a GED are NOT A REQUIREMENT.
Employers call us and send flyers for jobs available. We also hold mini job fairs when an employer wishes to visit a specific class.
Would advise to check our the certifications the teacher carries. And, in some instances look up the teacher's license online.
Standard questions are: will the length of the course get me finished in time to pursue higher education classes; what can be done if a day or more is missed due to illiness or previous planned activities; how can I fit in this class with my outside work hours or family obligations; how much homework is involved; etc.
