During the past decade, a growing gap has developed between the technology skills required by employers and the number of qualified job applicants who posses those skills. CDE was founded in 1996, in response to this growing need. Since then, due to our reputation for quality, fairness and professionalism, CDE has since experienced phenomenal growth. Our Mission is “To help people build more successful lives through Career Education, Professional Development and Employment.”

CDE is dedicated to the belief that all students should have the opportunity to develop technical skills that will enable them to secure and retain productive, rewarding careers. We are committed to providing educational programs that deliver the maximum amount of training in the minimum amount of time, we are dedicated to the overall success of our students, and we continually strive to deliver the highest quality training possible. How do we achieve these objectives? Through a combination of a highly qualified and experienced staff, an up-to-date and well-organized curriculum, and an array of industry-standard training equipment.

CDE is licensed by the Pennsylvania State Board of Private Licensed Schools and is nationally accredited by the Council on Occupational Education. Additionally, the U.S. Department of Education has approved CDE to participate in the Title IV Federal Financial Aid program. CDE is owned by Career Development & Employment, Ltd., a Pennsylvania corporation. It is governed by a distinguished Board of Directors. The board, in conjunction with its President, is responsible for making all major decisions for this institution.
