Founded in 1985 by Dr. Milton Byrd, SM调教社区College is a private, independent institution of higher education, offering certificate and degree programs. For more than 35 years, we have remained true to our core mission to provide students with real-world skills that they can put to immediate use in the job market. From our original campus in Anchorage, AK, we have expanded to five additional states and now offer a wide range of programs that prepare students to build careers in industries that need well-trained employees. We offer programs in Business, Health Care and IT, three multi-trillion-dollar industries that are predicted to grow far into the future. We provide training for medical assistants, dental assistants, HVAC technicians, and welders, all hands-on professions that require knowledge and skills that our instructors can teach through comprehensive blended learning.
Unlike traditional institutions of higher education that take a campus-first, liberal arts approach, SM调教社区College runs programs that prepare you for the real world. You learn what you need to perform the tasks of your new career without added courses and unnecessary electives. From a curriculum built upon industry insight, you get hands-on training coupled with online instruction to make your education better fit the reality of your busy life. Programs offered exclusively online provide you with the same robust material but presented with more flexibility; you learn when it鈥檚 most convenient for you. And the faculty come from the careers they teach about, bringing industry knowledge, experience, and anecdotes into the classroom. You learn from the best to be your best.
