The language barrier just narrowed for Spanish-speakers who want career training.
United Education Institute has implemented bilingual courses at its El Monte, Huntington Park and Chula Vista campuses. Beginning this February, the El Monte campus will offer bi-lingual courses in the Medical Assistant and Computer System Technician programs. Huntington Park and Chula Vista will offer bi-lingual Medical Assistant courses.
Class presentations will be taught primarily in Spanish, enabling students who speak Spanish as their first language to maximize their comprehension. Practicing skills, textbooks and medical terminology will be taught in English. This will allow students optimum interaction with patients and medical staff.
“We’re giving students an opportunity that other career colleges in the area simply aren’t offering,” said Randy Morales, El Monte Campus President. “To reach out to new students who will really make an impact on the community, we felt that our courses literally needed to speak their language.”
UEI has continually adapted new teaching methods to focus on students’ needs, a difference that has helped the college stand out from other career training providers. By offering students intensive, focused courses in the allied health, business, computer technology and massage therapy fields, UEI has become a reputable provider of education and training employers know they can trust.
UEI has seven campuses in California, located in El Monte, Ontario, Chula Vista, Huntington Park, San Bernardino, San Diego and Van Nuys. UEI offers career training in the following programs: Business Office Administration, Computer Systems Technician, Dental Assistant, Massage Therapy, Medical Assistant, Medical Billing & Insurance Coding, and Pharmacy Technician. Not all programs are available at all campuses. Campus tours are available for people who want to learn more about the school and its programs.
