“I’m so grateful to say that I have completed the CNA program and passed both the state written and skill exams and became a Certified Nurse Assistant. This program helped me a lot especially Professor Castro, she’s one of the best Professor I have ever had; She helped me a lot and she was caring for all of us and wants us to succeed. I couldn’t have done it without her! This program will be beneficial for people who are going into the medical field. I can't wait to share with you all my future steps which is a PA program and CCNY will be my first choice of program. Thank you guys once again.”


"I would like to share some very good news with you. I have been offered a Data Coordinator position at Mount Sinai Hospital - Blood and Marrow Transplant Research Department! I credit in part, the Medical Billing and Coding Training course that I took with you, for this great opportunity. It is my hope that my other classmates found your program as rewarding."

"2020 has been an unarguably challenging year... I’m so honored and grateful for all the knowledge, collaboration and support I received since day one (of the Medical Interpreter program). Thanks to that great experience I found a new job as a Spanish Interpreter and I’m also volunteering with a community clinic based in Chicago. There is no other program as comprehensive and meaningful as this one"


"I am happy and grateful to the amazing CPS team of City College New York and Bronx Lebanon Hospital Special Care center. The training that I received prepared me to hit the ground running from day one at the job. Thank you guys again"

"The English Language Institute is amazing and beneficial, especially for people who continue to attend college. I feel more confident to speak, read and write English."

"I am happy to say that I have successfully completed the CBCS course and received my certificate. I am currently preparing to take the exam in late April/early May. The curriculum was laid out in a way that was very easy to follow and understand. Ms.Judy and her co-teachers were readily available to answer any questions! Overall I am so thankful to have taken this course, I was even hired in my first full-time position as an anesthesia medical biller and will be starting this month! Thank you very much for this experience, and I look forward to continuously learning in this field! In the future if I decide to pursue a coding certification, CCNY will be my first choice of program."
