What Our Students Are Saying

Eryka N.

Dental Assisting

“Learning all the tools and the inside of the tooth is very interesting. Plus I like working chair side.”

Venus B.

Medical Billing & Coding

“Instructors explained more in detail and assignments were given to have an idea on what it would be like in a work environment.”

Michael Palumbo

Welding Technologies

As an incoming student for the welding technologies course at Maplewood I had no knowledge of welding at all but I knew I wanted to be challenged accordingly. The instructors took the time necessary to Teach and make sure everything was understood for the bookwork and the shop work as well as make sure that the students were being pushed to become better. Thanks to the support and training myself and another classmate were able to earn our 6g pipe papers, a testament to the teachers. At the end of the course and to this very day I feel that there hasn't been and won't be a better investment in myself and I owe the skills I possess today to the teachers and staff at Maplewood. Thank you Maplewood.

Industrial Maintenance

Maplewood Career Center's Industrial Maintenance Program has directly benefited my job performance and instilled a new confidence in my ability as a Maintenance Technician. Rudy, our lead instructor, is resilient in his focus to help every one of his students to become successful in the program. Alongside Rudy's strategic questioning, the substantial textbooks, training simulators and comprehensive troubleshooting applications you face in this course are going to put your mental endurance to the test and the reward is a better understanding and new found respect for this craft. To anyone aspiring to begin their career or tremendously improve their skills as a Maintenance Technician, Maplewood Career Center is undoubtedly the best place to build your foundation.
