Our History of Growth
Compu-Med Vocational Careers was founded in May 1990, and the corporation was organized in September 1989. The school was called the Medical and Dental Training Center at that time. In July of 2000, we changed the name of our school and later called Compu-Med Vocational Careers.
Compu-Med Vocational Careers is now an accredited institution offering training and degrees in various vocational fields. Our mission is to provide students with the opportunity to learn how to work in various healthcare settings, including hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and other medical facilities. We also offer training and degrees in allied health professions such as radiology technician and dental assistant training.
Beginnings for CMVC
In the beginning, we were in a small, two-classroom facility on Okeechobee Road in Hialeah, Florida. The school offered, at that time, only Medical and Dental Assistant programs. In April of 1993, the school moved to a larger facility and added the Nursing Assistant program, now called the Patient Care Technician program.
The school first obtained a grant of accreditation in 1994 and received a renewal of its accreditation in 1996. Over the years, additional programs in English as a Second Language and Computer Business Applications were added. During this time, enrollment grew. As a result, we moved our school again to a larger location, still in the Hialeah vicinity, which is currently our present facility, located at 2900 W. 12th Ave., 3rd Floor, Hialeah, Florida.
to Help Our
In April 1998, the school established a branch facility in Miami, Florida. The school began offering classes in Medical Assistant, Dental Assistant, and Nursing Assistant, now called the Patient Care Technician program, in May of 1998. Initial accreditation for this location was received in May 1999. In October 2000, our Branch facility was situated at 9738 S.W. 24th Street, Miami, Florida.
Both schools obtained the renewal of accreditation from February 2012 through February 2017.
In December 2010, the Board of Directors decided to make the following changes to our programs, of which approval was granted by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges and Commission for Independent Education, Florida Department of Education in June of 2011: Enhancement and modification of existing programs such as for Medical Assistant, Dental Assistant, Patient Care Technician, and Computer Business Application.
