EMPLOYER TESTIMONIAL

“We highly regard Community Support Work related schooling/credentials when making hiring decisions. The schooling indicates to us that applicants have some systematic training in the field and are passionate about quality care; this means they are likely to be high performers and stay longer because they fully understand what the job involves. Retention is a huge consideration, those that are likely to stay longer will always be highly sought after as it takes time to build working relationships and relationships with person served.”

HR Generalist

“As you probably are aware by now, most of my recent hires are from your college, and I am very happy with the performance and work ethics of your graduates. They are very responsive, caring and have a solid knowledge by the time they enter the workforce.

Kudos to you and to your organization.

With much respect,”

Leo Monterola
Director of Care

Success Story

I had a fantastic experience at Drake Medox College, as I found the instructors very knowledgeable, the quality of the training rooms to be so realistic to actual facilities and the Drake staff incredibly helpful and friendly. I now feel more than capable of taking the right steps to achieve my goal in becoming a health care assistant and building a great career for myself...I would recommend them to all my family and friends. I now look forward to starting a new and exciting career. Thank you Drake Medox College!
