In the past decade, there has been a shift toward greater specialization in the workplace, and as a result, blue collar jobs are growing more and more scarce. According to the Department of Labor, the percentage of unskilled jobs in the laboor market has currently dropped to 15% while the percentage of skilled jobs has increased to 65%. That’s 92.3 million jobs. Of these skilled labor jobs, less than half will require a four-year degree. The result is 50 million positions tailor-made for graduates of career institutions. Career training offers anyone seeking skills, education, and training an opportunity to compete in an increasingly demanding workplace.
With more people graduating from high school each year (there is a projected growth of 17% in the annual number of graduates between 1995 and 2005), career schools are well-positioned to educate students for the new millennium. Computer Training Academy focuses on training students for specific careers and placing them in jobs after graduation. Within 90 days of graduation, the vast majority of graduates are placed in jobs for which they have been trained. Our campus has working relationships with local employers. These employers know the quality of our graduates, and they know we will work with them to ensure that our curriculum reflects the needs of the real-world.
One of our strengths is our ability to respond quickly to market changes. We are a private institution with the ability to adapt quickly to the needs of our local employers. As a result, our curriculum is always up-to-date. In addition, time and schedule constraints are often the greatest problems facing students. At our campus, we design schedules to meet the needs of working adults, offering a variety of classes during the day and evening. We see ourselves as fulfilling the needs of society by providing training and education to individuals, making them competitive in the workforce.
