Criminal Justice, Paralegal Added to Program Offerings
Everest Institute-Norcross has opened a $1.5 million, 16,000 square foot expansion that nearly doubles the size of the campus. A dedication and ribbon-cutting for the new addition was held on Oct. 21 at the campus, 1750 Beaver Ruin Road in Norcross.
"Private education expansions, like the one we're celebrating at Everest Institute, enable students to secure good paying jobs, which is what this state needs now more than ever," said Georgia Assistant Labor Commissioner Linda T. Johnson, at the event.
The Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce was on hand to cut the ribbon for the new facility during the event that was also attended by several dignitaries including State Representative Pedro Marin (D-Duluth).
"We are proud of the contributions that this growing campus and the other Everest campuses in the Atlanta area make toward meeting the workforce needs of this state," said Crystal Celestine, president of Everest Institute-Norcross.
The campus can now serve approximately 1,800 students including new training in criminal justice and paralegal.
In addition to these two new areas, Everest Institute-Norcross offers job training in: dental assisting; massage therapy; medical insurance billing and coding; medical assisting; and medical administrative assisting.
Everest Institutes in Georgia are accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), authorized by the Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission (NPEC) and certified by the U.S. Department of Education.
