Student Reviews


  • Supportive staff

    Shivani Naidu - Paralegal, Surrey

    My favourite part of attending CDI College was that at school I was able to learn updated information and new technology. My experience ar CDI College was good and I don't necessarily have any complaints. Staff are supportive and help whenever you need it, they are prompt and do not procrastinate. I was able to accomplish my goal for education by attending CDI College. CDI College had an amazing atmosphere that in my opinion encouraged me to attend classes everyday and strive to attend good grades. My instructor, Meena, had a big impact on my education and campus life. She encouraged not only me but my peers to suuceed and strive for success. I found that my Paralegal program builds the foundation of knowledge in a student's life and I am very satisfied.

  • Staff Always There When Needed

    Alex Tepas - Rehabilitation Therapy Assistant, Surrey

    CDI College was a fun experience since I always had a goal of going back to school. Staff and instructors were always very clear and were always there when needed. Mili was my favourite teacher and she always took pride in helping us move forward an extra mile. I will recommend CDI College to all who want to have a fun and educational learning experience.

  • Lots of Practical Knowledge

    Holly Poole - Practical Nursing, Surrey

    The class sizes and class start times were the best at CDI College and it was an excellent experience. Through CDI College, I was connected to a great rehab clinic to work. The staff and instructors indulge in lots of one on one time with students and take extra time to prepare for tests. The program gave me lots of practical knowledge. My suggestion is enroll in CDI College since it is a great school, has good instructors, and a great program.

  • Fun & interesting

    Tanya Well - Practical Nursing, Surrey

    I learnt a lot at CDI College and had an interesting experience. The college helped me achieve my goal of earning a diploma. The staff and instructors made the learning experience fun and interesting. The practicum placements were even more amazing. I would surely recommend CDI College to others because it has great facilities to offer and a knowledgeable staff.

  • Great teachers!

    Amandeep Ghotra - Practical Nursing, Surrey

    The learning environment and teachers at CDI College are great. My experience at CDI College was interesting and educational, there was never a dull moment. It gave me the practical skills and knowledge I needed to be able to get a job and a career. The staff and instructors were very helpful and always available to help. The clinical instructors are amazing as well. I would definitely recommend this college to everyone since it is a great learning environment.

  • Awesome experience

    Donna Collins - Health Care Assistant, Surrey

    I had an awesome experience at CDI College with nice staff and I also made a lot of friends. CDI College helped me achieve my goals by teaching me skills for my career choice. The staff and instructors believed in me and gave me good advice. The best part about my program was the hands-on learning and the facilities being operated for this. The small class sizes and educational instructors are what makes me want to recommend CDI College to others.

  • Roller Coaster Ride of Emotions

    Elizabeth Moran - Dental Assisting, Surrey

    My favourite part about attending CDI College was the clinical classes because I got to feel and be like a real certified dental assistant and at the same time be able to challenge myself to do better and succeed. My experience at CDI College was like a roller coaster ride of emotions because I came to know and understand the extent of my abilities in 11 months. Then there was the feeling of extreme joy at succeeding in a test or practical and also the anxiety and stress of doing a practical/clinical. However, I wouldn't change this experience for anything else. If not for CDI College and the Dental Assisting program, I would not have become the person I am today with a sense of direction, maturity, and a social and educational attainment. Having instructors like Natasha Petri and others in the Dental department greatly helped me be successful since they always told me I could do it and their tips and discussions were very helpful. For me personally, along with the practicum that helped me how to function in a real dental office environment, the Career and Employment Services was the best part about the program since they helped me right from making a resume to how to give interviews to finding a job. I would definitely recommend CDI College to my friends and family since the college does a great job in taking care of students and helping them achieve their educational attainment.

  • Great Experience

    Ainul (Anny) Islam Butt - Business Administration, Surrey

    The friendly and helpful staff at CDI College was my most favourite part about attending this college. It was a great experience because I didn't expect myself to push this far. CDI College encouraged me to attend every class and be on time and brought me closer to achieving my goals. They helped me focus on how to be successful. I learnt a lot from my program because it made me broaden my business knowledge. I would recommend this college to everyone since it has so many programs to pick from.

  • Gave me the tools to be job-ready

    Sunita Khunga - Paralegal, Surrey

    Apart from the small class sizes, which was my favorite part at CDI College, I've had a very eventful learning experience.

  • Achieved my goals!

    Juan C Carranza - Paralegal, Surrey

    My favourite part about attending CDI College was always knowing that I was working in a great, inviting atmosphere every day; one that allowed me to interact freely and with others, learn, and focus in an enriching environment with great people. My experience at CDI College, though laced with my own personal struggles and obstacles, was made easier by teachers who taught me how to overcome my obstacles. I achieved my goals by making use of the proper tools and guidance from the staff and instructors who were my support system. They were not only interactive with their teaching methods but also created helpful relationships with students that contributed to our overall success. I was able to learn from the best in the industry during my practicum placement and thus directly learnt skills that I could use in my future employment.

  • Gratifying

    Fiona - Medical Office Assistant, Richmond

    Our instructors are outgoing in a professional way. I found them to be incredibly helpful and informative with a splash of spunk. Their attitudes make class/labs fun. Discussions in class also help with applying ideas and methods. My experience was gratifying and pleasurable. This course challenged your ability to handle stress and cooperate with a variety of teaching techniques. The staff is outrageously benevolent and never retracts a helping hand. Through my roller coaster of emotional problems, I am glad that I was able to confide with the friendly and ingenious members of the Richmond CDI faculty.

  • Ample Free Space

    Harpreet Kaur - Early Childhood Education, Richmond

    The instructors have made a difference in our education by helping each student individually with assignments and other activities. Also, by giving class explanations of the notes. Our classrooms provide ample space for students. Availability of computers in the lab helped the students with their assignments and planning out other activities. The small class makes the instructor approachable to students.

  • Wonderful People

    Ines Woblgar - Early Childhood Education, Richmond

    Luigi Gaboy - Early Childhood Education, Richmond

    My instructor was the best instructor I have ever had, she has so much experience in her field, she taught us all the basic things we need for practicum. She is very professional with her work, she taught us how to deal with the things that we might encounter in our field. She is one of the people that we can always count on, she is always there and ready to help her students. We had so much fun in her class, without her, I wont be able to get job offers. I will always thank her for the memories and experiences we shared together. I am very proud to be one of her students here in CDI college. The schools concept of innovative learning through iPads made a big difference compared to other colleges. They made it easier for us to access textbooks, notes and lectures that we needed.

    Our Instructors are good role models. I am learning a lot from them. I do not get intimidated because they are very nice, supportive and approachable.

Everyday I am learning new things. The staff are always there if the students need help.

  • Genuine Passion

    Jeffrey Lee - Burnaby

    I joined the team at CDI College Burnaby Campus as an Employment Specialist for a little over ten months. My role in career services is to assist students in career preparation and network with employers to provide connections between our grads and available jobs. What I found impressive about the Burnaby campus is the genuine passion that our instructional and management staff has towards the success of our students during and after their programs. Instructors are eager to work with me on following up with previous grads job search progress and this allows me to keep up to date with each grad to provide job referrals and opportunities to those who need it. I am proud to be a part of a team that goes beyond just teaching and shares in the passion of ensuring students get support after graduation.

  • The Teachers Care

    Andrea Ricard - Medical Office Assistant, Burnaby

    At CDI College, I like how the teachers inform the class that they know how the students feel when we are going through a very stressful and intense time. It shows they care and that they understand, yet they want us to succeed. I also like it how we can address any problems directly with them or the director without being afraid. When I ran into an issue, it was a huge relief to have a meeting with my director and instructor.) The atmosphere in the college is relaxed and friendly. Despite the students or instructors may not know each other all by name there is always a conversation always waiting to happen either in the hallways or the lunch room. This is the first school where I have been able to let down my guard. In the other schools I have been to I always had to keep my guard up in fear. Despite the distance it is worth it.

  • Building Careers

    Mona Kaur - Accounting and Payroll Administrator, Surrey

    I have been an employment specialist/practicum coordinator at CDI for the last 3 years. During this period, I have helped hundreds of students by placing them in practicum and teaching them how to get a job after completing their courses. I wanted to pursue teaching ever since I completed my education. It struck me that so many other graduates with dreams of making a decent career must be going through the same difficulties that many of us have gone through. Many of them might get discouraged and give up on the chance of building a career so I decided to join the CDP program at SFU to become an employment specialist. I inspire my students to always believe in their own abilities to instil self confidence in them. Most students are apprehensive about out into the job market and I give them examples from real life people who made a good career. I provide them professional tools for job search like how to write a resume and cover letter, where to look for relevant jobs and how to apply for them. I have always believed that we might not be able to change the world for the better but we certainly can influence that part where we belong. We should give back to our job the best we can and based on our education and experience. Fortunately, at my present job, I get that chance everyday to help our students make their lives better.

I love challenges and accounting and numbers are challenging for students but the contentment they feel having learned the subject inspires me to look forward and keep doing it. It is very rewarding. I inspire my students by understanding their feelings and searching for a real person within. I maintain a positive vibe in class in every negative situation.

I believe when an instructor starts believing in changing lives through education and inspirational instructor is born.

    A lot of the instructors are very helpful here, they offer one on one help as well as flexibility. As a single mother, I sometimes find it hard to get everything handed in on time and most of the instructors will work with me. They provide other options so I can complete the work and be successful. The computer lab is great because it has all the up to date software that is needed to be prepared for my field. I also like that we use Ipads. My experience here has been very positive. I constantly recommend this school to friends and everyone is generally friendly. My instructors, Meena and Christine, have been great so far.
