It is with pleasure that we introduce you to the Knowledge-First Career Institute. Knowledge-First Career Institute is a vocational institution committed to students as individuals, helping them with their individual needs and goals. Our programs are carefully designed to meet the industry and community demands. Our classes encompass the hands-on training you’ll receive from our experienced faculty in addition to the knowledge you need to succeed.
Because of this attention to both subject matter and more importantly, to the students themselves, our learners soon become self-directed in their thirst for knowledge. Furthermore, understanding that education not only addresses the intellectual capacities, we also develop character, healthy lifestyles, and proficiencies that lead to life-long resiliency.
While the school is in its sixth year of operation, direct management has a 20-year history of direct workforce development and training experience. Our team is accredited by either the Accredited by the Commission of the Council on Occupational Education or the National Center for Construction Education and Research to provide their respective training courses.
