About CCI

Mr. Edmund Carrasco

CEO & Founder

Career Care Institute, also known as CCI, is one of the most progressive vocational training facilities you will find in Southern California.

Our nationally accredited campuses are not only focused on short-term instruction, we are here to train professionals for long-term success. We pride ourselves in delivering quality education for the sole purpose of preparing our students for long-term careers.

Our school originated in the Antelope Valley in 1998 and has since expanded to Oxnard and Moreno Valley. Over the past 20 years, we have tripled in size/location and that expansion is projected to progress as the high demand for medical professionals continues to skyrocket.

All programs at Career Care Institute focus on trades within the medical community and all instructors are experienced veterans within the subjects they teach. We specialize in preparing registered nurses, vocational nurses, limited permit x-ray technicians, medical assistants, and dental assistants. Our complimentary career-planning sessions are an essential tool to see which path will suit you best.

Over the course of the last two decades, Career Care Institute has built a foundation where students feel proficient and prepared for the vocation of their choice. We cultivate leaders, we develop professionals, and we strive to provide the scholastic tools to build a better future.

Mobile Health Unit

Career Care Institute Unveils 38' Mobile Health Unit to the Community

CCI has not only expanded to three campuses across Southern California, we have also added a new addition to the CCI family. In May of 2015, administration was proud to unveil a brand new 38’ Mobile Health Unit!

The purpose of this Mobile Health Unit is to meet the growing needs of our community, wherever that need may be. It will be used as a training element for CCI instructors and students. It will also allow CCI to offer support and participation at local events. We aim to foster and create partnerships with our local schools and non-profit organizations, and to help assist with growing healthcare needs. Offering free immunizations is the tip of the iceberg as to what the Mobile Health Unit will allow us to do on the go. The healthcare industry and needs of our community will never be at a standstill, and with the introduction of the new Mobile Health Unit, neither will Career Care Institute. For a community that’s on the move, Career Care Institute is right there with you!
