COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

As established professionals, career school teachers are knowledgeable about their respective specialties.  As first-time instructors, their concern, therefore, is not with what to teach, but how to teach it.  To meet this need, the Coalition of New York State Career Schools, and its predecessor organizations, have provided Teacher Training to licensed and registered career schools for more than twenty-five years.  All courses are approved by the New York State Education Department to meet Private Trade and Registered Business School Teacher License Requirements.

IN ORDER TO PROVIDE WHAT WE FEEL IS THE BEST POSSIBLE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE, ALL COALITION COURSES ARE LIMITED TO 7 1/2 INSTRUCTIONAL HOURS PER DAY AND ARE NORMALLY SPACED A WEEK APART TO PROVIDE SUFFICIENT TIME FOR REVIEW AND CLASS PREPARATION.
