What makes us different?

Our students create their own schedules within our hours of operation. Students can come in as little as one time a week to accommodate for their busy schedules, as long as they meet NCIA rules and regulations. We understand that not everyone can be a full-time student, so we want to provide the opportunity to allow anyone to be a student and graduate at their own pace.

We focus on simplified learning that can accommodate all types of learning styles. We offer student advisement, one-on-one tutoring, group review classes, and extra practice exams to well prepare our students. We do our best to ease students who suffer from test anxiety and/or fear of learning in a group setting by creating individualized programs to suit their needs.

Assisted Living Training School promotes a family oriented environment. We want our students to feel welcome and eager to learn.  We pray and cheer for our students to succeed.

" I have been helped by staff since I first called for information. The instructors are very kind and informative. I felt comfortable in every step of the way. The courses are easy but they are informative as well. I was given everything I needed to pass the certification test. My schedule was not a problem for me to complete the program smoothly.
