Best professors unique segway into the field of addiction. I was lucky to have professor Crossen,PhD,RN in his last teaching year. Developed intimacy with other students in our endeavor to practice a well rounded career in the addiction field.

We didn’t study all the details and was not enough for working. When I applied for this job they asked me if I study more. And also the parking lot is very small it was very hard to find a place

The is one of the few programs left, and the only college program in the Los Angeles. There is a lot of hands on welding in every discipline. Lectures could offer a lot more about information on what to actually expect in the working world. I was fortunate to get two really good jobs, and two really bad ones after this education, however I'm considering strongly leaving this line of work simply because having the education makes you better than many you work with and the work is truly inconsistent. I will instead use the education to create more artwork and self employment opportunities.The best part of the training is the more advanced welders enjoy helping you learn techniques. The hardest part is learning to be patience, this skill requires it. I am able to weld nearly all metals and I have found that this training set me above some who have been in the industry for more than 25 years. Education matters.

Can be difficult to get into classes but the college is addressing this with additional course sections

Excellent academic and clinical preparation for the certification and work in the field. Instructors are engaged and helpful and the courses are well targeted to prepare students for the real world. The program is improving every year. For example, there is now a course dedicated to dental procedures which increases the value of candidates to employers.

Pierce College is an amazing place to learn. Teachers are dedicated and want you to succeed, it is not a easy class taking 4 semesters, but it was worth it.

This program was offered back in 2009 and it was great! You complete the courses which by the way are also transferable to any Cal State or University.
