While no one denies that a university education can open doors to a variety of careers, vocational school importance should not be cast aside. The enhanced training and practical experience trade programs such as the ones offered by Campus, formerly known as MTI College, a leading technical school in Sacramento, provide can put you on the fast track to your career. If you prefer learning by doing as opposed to learning in a traditional academic setting, a vocational school may be your best option for post-secondary education. It emphasizes practical job-specific skills that you can use and apply in any number of fields, from HVAC to cosmetology to paralegal.
Vocational programs Campus offers
The trade programs at Campus include business administration and accounting, paralegal studies, health care (medical assistant, medical coding and billing, and phlebotomy certification), technology (network administration and IT support), and cosmetology. In many cases, students can complete a Campus diploma program in one year or less and learn valuable job skills that prepare them for entry-level positions in the workforce. For those who want enhanced training, two-year Associate Degree programs are offered in business information, information technology and paralegal law work. In addition to lectures and classroom education, all programs provide practical experience via hands-on training. It’s this combination of learning opportunities that results in preparedness for good jobs. Class schedules accommodate those students who work part time or have family responsibilities that require flexibility.
Faculty admired and respected by students
Campus hires faculty members who are experienced professionals, practicing in the fields they teach. They’ve been in the workforce and know the obstacles as well as the techniques needed to succeed. Because of small class sizes, faculty are better able to pay personal attention to students. Feedback about our instructors from the students indicates that they really care about them. Jenette Edwards, a graduate of Campus’ Medical Assisting program, says, “[The teachers] pushed me to do my best and to work hard.” A Paralegal Studies grad, Deb Stoeckle, says she enjoyed learning from the faculty. “Having a practicing attorney or working paralegal as an instructor brings stories and real experiences to the classroom.” Diane Campbell, another Paralegal Studies graduate, says all of the instructors are “stellar” and, “I was inspired to achieve because everyone was so supportive.”
