Poconos Schools, Career Education, CDE Career Institute
From GED to Career Training Diploma programs, CDE is dedicated to getting our community trained and placed in great jobs in the shortest time possible. This post-secondary school is truly the Pocono’s Best Kept Secret!
CDE Career Institute was created in 1996 as a Pennsylvania Private Licensed School to accommodate the employment needs of our local community. CDE is accredited by the Council on Occupational Education. As a technical career training school, we offer accelerated and advanced Diploma Programs in Medical Administration and Office Administration. Our training provides our students the opportunity to earn their diploma as well as become Certified in Microsoft Office as well as in Health Insurance Processing, Electronic Health Records, Medical Billing and Coding. CDE is an approved testing center for Microsoft Office as well as National Healthcareer Association. We also recently introduced a GED program due to the needs of our community.
The current job market in our area reflects brand new hospitals, medical facilities and businesses that require the specialized skills of our students training. We have partnered with our areas leading hospitals and medical facilities to develop our Internship program to help our students gain experience, develop skills, make connections, and assess their interest and abilities. We also work with CareerLink regarding dislocated workers, to help get them trained in either a new career or simply help them update their computer skills for our current job market needs. We offer lifetime job placement assistance to all our students meaning graduates are eligible to use placement services years after they complete their education.
Our training facility offers Instructor led programs with small class sizes which our students really love. Our highly qualified/motivated instructors ensure that our students get the absolute most from their program. Unlike other larger schools, we can help subsidize the cost of daycare and sometimes transportation for our students to help them achieve their goals. Here at CDE, Every Student is our most Important Student! Our programs are extremely affordable and are Financial Aid eligible to those who qualify. We are open Monday-Thursday from 9am to 10pm and Fridays from 9am to 9pm and offers day or evening classes.
