Content Updated 2/8/2023

There are many options to attend school and complete a career training program to help you obtain the skills you need to begin a healthcare career. You could select a larger university, try an online college option, or attend a small school. Each option will offer a different learning experience for students.

For many people, attending a small school can make a big difference in their success story, during their career training program, and after graduation. Keep reading to find out more, as we share the benefits of selecting a small-school environment such as Boardman Training Center to get the training you need in preparation for your new career!

Small Class Sizes

One of the benefits of attending a smaller institution is the small class sizes. On average, there are fewer students in each class in a small-school setting. This means there won’t be large lecture halls filled with hundreds of people just listening to the lecturer talk. 

When you attend Boardman Training Center, you can expect to connect with your instructors and classmates, and you will not be just seen as another face in the crowd. Instead, people will know your name and get to know you on a more personal level.

Attending Boardman Training Center also gives students the advantage of developing hands-on skills that will benefit them as they begin their careers. The more practice you get with these hands-on skills, the more confident you will be as you enter the workforce.

Students who choose Boardman Training Center to train for a new career will also prepare to sit for industry-specific National Healthcareer Association certifications* while in their healthcare training program.

Personalized Attention

In addition to enjoying smaller classes, another great benefit of completing your career training at Boardman Training Center, is getting personalized attention, which will help you do your best as you complete your program.

You would be in classes with hundreds of people in a large university setting. You would get minimal time to interact with your instructors because there isn’t enough time for professors to connect with every student. On the other hand, a small-school setting like Boardman Training Center allows teachers more time for each student to receive the one-on-one interaction they need to excel in their classes. At a small school, teachers are also more available outside the classroom, so you will get direct assistance and help when needed.

At Boardman Training Center, we offer a small-school environment designed to help you every step of the way. You’ll be part of our BTC family that engages you with personalized attention while helping you reach your career goals. With our WE CARE approach to career training, your teachers will support and encourage you along your journey to a new career.

Student Support 

As a student in a small-school environment, an additional benefit you will enjoy is the opportunity to get further assistance and support as needed while completing your career training classes. At Boardman Training Center, we provide academic support like tutoring and study services to help you in your healthcare classes.

Other services you can expect to receive at Boardman Training Center, besides academic support, include career services like resume writing assistance, cover letter writing, and job interview preparation.

Students who choose a small-school learning environment will have many opportunities to create lasting relationships with their classmates and instructors on a personal and professional level. This allows students to develop a robust support system as they train for their new careers. Attending a smaller, local school can also give students the option to stay closer to home, as many incoming students are doing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
