The hands-on learning experience” is the top reason many Everest students enjoy going to class every day, according to a recent poll conducted on Everest College’s Facebook Page.

The poll, which ran from August 2-3, asked visitors to choose from three possible reasons they enjoy going to class each day. The results were as follows:

Everest colleges, universities and institutes have long emphasized hands-on learning to support their traditional classroom teachings.  We know that students learn best by doing.  Even in the classroom, students are encouraged to work in groups and help each other through the educational experience.

*Programs, program lengths and program schedules vary by campus. Campuses vary by state. Everest College, Everest Institute and Everest University are part of the Everest family of schools.

If you’ve responded to one of Everest’s advertisements, you will likely receive a phone call from an Everest representative. This first call is basically a “get acquainted” conversation. We want to find out a bit more about you. We want to give you a chance to find out a bit more about us, too.

Be prepared to talk about your educational background and your field(s) of interest. Let us know if you expect to go to school full-time or part-time while you hold down a full- or part-time job. You’ll likely be invited to tour a campus where you can see an Everest school for yourself, meet the teachers, talk to students and see for yourself if Everest is right for you.

The call is the first step in a process designed to get you into a position where you can make the best possible decision about your education and your future.

Career training that is industry-specific means learning skills that are directly related to what the industry is looking for today. For instance, Everest’s medical assistant program is based on the skills currently in demand in the medical world. Students receive hands-on career training and are encouraged to develop the specific skills employers are looking for.

This is as critical to Everest as it is to the students – our job doesn’t end at graduation. We are committed to placing our students in the fields they have trained for. We assist our graduates not only with finding the right job to apply for, but ensuring they have the skills they need — including how to interview and prepare a resume — to get the job they’ve worked so hard to prepare for.
