Pioneering Learner Outcomes Through Firsthand Experience

Innovation School Model

Operating under the Altierus Career College brand banner, the innovation school model represents a framework for building a technology-forward learning experience that combines the best of hands-on instruction with flexible, interactive and virtual extensions. The model has the ability to function in true entrepreneurial fashion, fielding ideas from partners and pivoting to pursue the most promising paths forward. Current locations include Atlanta, GA; Houston, TX; and Tampa, FL.

ECMC Education continues to make significant financial and resource investments in its current schools to underscore its commitment to finding new ways to improve student outcomes. With partners who share in our cause, we will innovate new educational delivery methods that lead in student success and employment outcomes.

Case Study: Saving Hands-On Training During COVID-19

With the technology infrastructure and part-time online coursework put in place in prior years, Altierus campuses were able to shift to fully remote, online courses in a matter of days. Proactively equipping students, faculty and staff with iPads and technology well ahead of COVID-19 made the transition seamless. While technology played a large role in maintaining continuity for students, it was an instilled sense of leadership and responsibility among faculty and staff that made it possible. Additionally, training and coaching opportunities helped shore up remote instructional and operational competencies, while outreach to accreditors, state regulators and federal agencies helped gain alignment on flexible guidelines for maintaining compliant educational delivery.
