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.

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

Success Story

I chose Drake Medox not only as the waiting period was shorter compared to other colleges but it was recommended to me by some of my friends. I am already huge advocate of Drake Medox College, not for the referral benefits but because of the good quality and hands-on teaching environment that I had experienced during my time as a student. I am now more confident in applying all that I've learnt to my current role and have Drake Medox to thank for that.
