    It changed my life a lot because it was very hard for me to start again in a new country. But when I came to CDI it gave me an opportunity to study again what I was hoping to study in my home country.

  • Got real-life training

    Ella Mesina - Immigration Consultant with Internship, Scarborough

    While the course has introduced me to immigration law, the hands-on really helped a lot. It's the real-life situations. Seeing real situations and applying what you've learned in school is totally a different experience than in the classroom.

    My instructors helped me achieve my goals in class because they were willing to stay after school and help me with things that I didn't quite understand.

  • Got Trained for a New Career!

    Winsleen Braithwane - Accounting Assistant/Bookkeeper, Mississauga

    I worked for my last job for nearly 20 years before being laid off. I needed to upgrade my skills, so I took the Accounting Assistant/Bookkeeper program and now I have an exciting new career. Thanks CDI College!

  • Excited to go to work every day!

    Tracy Fahey - Medical Office Administrator, Mississauga

    I was a stay-at-home mom for years, but I wanted to get back into the workforce, and CDI College's hands-on training in the Medical Office Administrator program really helped me get up to speed on the latest skills needed to excel in the field. I love my new career!

  • Proud to be a CDI College Alumni!

    I was looking to make a change in my life, so I registered for the Network Systems Engineer program. Less than a year later, I'm working as a software engineer. Thank you, CDI College!

  • CDI HELPS TO OVERCOME YOUR LIMITS

    Olexiy Gorobets - Personal Support Worker, Mississauga

    I'd like to thank PSW course instructor, Cordell Thorp, for exellent teaching, patience, and amazing professionalism that allow both to individualize and enhance the course for everyone of us. Great Teacher! I also thank to Swati Sharma, Admission representative, for wise support and undestanding. Swati helped me to overcome scepsis and underconfidence, and I eventually won! I sincerely appreciate to Shiela Leano-Cunanan, our Clinical Instructor, for empathic support while we were in clinical placement. I'd recommend to uncover more details for applicants. Especially regarding practicum part. For example, applicants might know about the early start of shift (06:30 a.m.), emotional/physical challenges because of severe disabled residents of the nursing home. I think any kind of previous (even virtual) tour/excursion to facility could give right picture for future student who should acknowledge his profession for being well-prepared. Moreover Cordell Thorpe's classes provide amazing training for students preparing them for future work. Overall, I respectfully recommend CDI College Mississauga for those who seek for strong professional knowledge and skills providing with respect, dignity and by individualize approach.

  • CDI College Student Review

    Bienvenido Encarnacion - Toronto

    Excellence at it's Finest !!! I transferred from the Scarborough campus to the Toronto Campus. Still retained the same program. The transfer process was smooth and quick. Simon Connell and Marcia Buchanan both from the Scarborough Campus and Martha Kanelos and Nicole Carby from the Toronto Campus are all knowledgeable and extremely proficient in their respective fields and positions. Their help and assistance on my campus transfer is greatly acknowledged and appreciated. Thank you ladies :)

  • The Best Decision I Made Was.... CDI College

    Dalia Halabi - Business Administration, Scarborough

    Having a good instructor really does make all the difference in the world. One thing I'm fortunate to have is a chance to better my own future by taking a step in the right direction in terms of the program I'm currently taking, which is Business Administration, but also, I'm lucky to have an instructor who takes pride in his work and makes learning fun and easy. Not only is my instructor passionate about his job, he alsomakes sure that each student is engaged and is also learning something new every day. Applying to CDI College was the best decision I made and there are absolutely no regrets. I can talk about how great my instructor is for another 40 minutes but what's really important is that, overall, CDI College has only the best staff in place to assist students trying to get an education to get started with their careers.

  • Regained Confidence

    Samantha Warbrick - Business Administration, Ajax

    When I chose to attend CDI College, I was at a low point in my personal life and decided to make a change. Having a panic/anxiety disorder, I wouldn't be able to handle the heavy case load of a public college and continue to work full-time so CDI College was the choice I made to make improvements towards a better life. Through CDI College, I strived to learn and prove to myself that a two-time college dropout could go back to school for a third time and actually accomplish what I had set out to do. I have met the most amazing people and instructors here. They have all become like a second family to me. Life has been busy with working full-time hours and attending school and now with the completion of my program coming soon, I have the self-esteem and confidence that I had lost come back to me. Thanks to CDI College, I can look forward instead of back and continue to strive for better things. Thank you, CDI College!

  • amazing school

    Deborah MacDonald - Office Administrator - Executive, Hamilton

    I graduated from CDI College's Hamilton campus with a diploma in the Office Administrator - Executive program and 10 days later, I got a job in my field as an Office Admin. This is an amazing school and teachers who were helpful and friendly. Their Careers Counselor Annabelle was so helpful and was so supportive. They gave me the knowledge and support I needed. Thank you!

  • Future Looks Bright

    Rachel Bleakley - Ajax

    When I first came to CDI, I was not entirely thrilled to be returning to school. However, as the courses continued, I really started to enjoy the material. I began to feel that this was something I could do long-term. I could see myself enjoying a career in this field, and not being one of the many waiting for retirement. The instructors here had a lot to do with that. They have all been very helpful, and assisted me with anything I did not understand. Because of their dedication I did well in my courses and learned valuable skills that will serve me well in any job or position I attain. My future looks brighter on the career front, and I thank you all for that.

  • An Honor To Be Here

    Nycketa Brathwaite - Pharmacy Assistant, Ajax

    Being at CDI is an honor. I would like to thank to thank Joe, our director, Administration staff, my Instructor, Connie, and my fellow students... for all the support and encouragement I received throughout my course. Coming to CDI was one of the best decisions I ever made. I tried two different programs before at another college which I was unhappy with and until I took the pharmacy course at CDI, I finally realized I had found my career. School each day was a fantastic experience. While I found it challenging, I learned so much. I made new friends, we studied together, we supported each other, we made everlasting relationships. I looked forward to coming to school each day, to learn something new. I not only learned the academics, I also learned how to be a professional. After learning all the theory I was able to bring that knowledge to complete the on hands experience at my practicum placement at Shoppers Drug Mart. It was so successful that after completing my placement Shoppers Drug Mart hired me. My Instructor Connie was not only my teacher, she was my mentor, my friend and my best supporter. With my continuous hard work and dedication lead me to where I am today. I am now a Pharmacy Assistant, I feel qualified to work in a profession I have come to love. I have achieved my goal. As Albert Einstein once said Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school.

  • Exceeds Expectations

    Norbert Nelson - Paralegal, Ajax

    Recently completing my one year diploma program in Paralegal Advocacy at CDI College and sitting and passing the Law Society licensing exam. I am happy to have attended such a wonderful college where the administrative staff and teachers are doing a great job. Teachers in the program were very knowledgeable and know their craft. Friendly, approachable and provided a good learning environment. I honestly did not know I would learn so much, this course has exceeded my expectations. It was a pleasure to be able to learn from teachers like Katherine Brooks and Terry Ramjit who wants to help students become good paralegals. I would highly recommend CDI College and the Paralegal Advocacy Diploma program to everyone.

  • Welcome to CDI

    Line Wilson - Personal Support Worker, Ajax

    Stepping in CDI that first day, the message conveyed was Welcome. The atmosphere was friendly and inviting! I was sold! Jill and Geoffrey are great! But the best was yet to come. The teachers here really believe in you! That alone, with their fantastic sense of haha, their dedication to every student, always willing to help you in all aspects of your life, the kindness, genuine concern. These teachers were my biggest cheerleaders! At 57, I never imagined I Could be so successful! I would like to thank: Joe: For all the advice, the great conversations and accepting me in the PSW course. Theresa: One of a kind! Teacher with a great sense of humor! Evelyn: Who goes to bat for us. If you work hard, you will never find a teacher, a giver, a genuine, caring humanitarian like her! CDI: Offers excellent courses, teachers, atmosphere. It is the best. I walked in here and have never looked back! Best step I ever took. I will miss CDI College once I leave here to pursue my career as a PSW!

  • Thank You CDI

    Era Darrah - Ajax

    Dear Joe, Theresa, Sylvia, Cathy, Evelyn and CDI Staff. If I had money to buy a card, I would buy the biggest brightest card I could find.

  • Friendly People

    Silburn Knight - Medical Office Administrator, Hamilton

    My instructor is great at teaching. He has a fantastic attitude, instructors, and provides in class help on each subject with much clarity and re-enforcement. The computers, books (with clear pictures) and projects are innovative components of our classroom. The CDI campus has a comfortable environment and friendly teachers and students. I would like to continue to take courses even when one is completed.

  • Well Organized

    Rhonda Kinar - Hamilton

    My instructor has made a difference in my education through many different ways. She is always available when needed for questions, and explains all topics/chapters well, making the course interesting. She is very knowledgeable and knows her line of work well, and is a excellent, encouraging instructor. There is a great deal of information in our medical terminology classroom. It is well organized, colorful, interesting and inviting. It is also very spacious. Everyone of the instructors awe willing to help out whenever they can, as well as the staff in the office. My favorite instructor is Carole Galan. I enjoy having a lunch for students and also a learning room that is open after class for extra studying. I am proud to be a student of CDI college and am happy to announce where I attend, and am also referring the college to others. I look forward to each day and chapter of my course

  • CDI Is Fantastic

    Katrina Bahn - Accounting and Payroll Administrator, Hamilton

    My background is in Accounting & Payroll. I have been in this field for two and a half years since graduating from Everest College. When taking my course at Everest I was approached by two amazing teachers that now work with me at CDI college to take on the teacher assistant job which I did and was contracted. I loved helping out the students answering any questions they may have had. It took the initiative to get my name out there and it paid off because i am now here at CDI and loving it more than Everest. I inspire my students by taking the time to get to know them and make them feel that what they are doing is the best decision they have made. I Say positive things when they are to hard on themselves. If CDI was here in Hamilton when I went to Everest I probably would have came here instead of there. It is definitely a way more positive atmosphere and I do not feel like students are just a number

  • I Love Teaching

    Carole Galan - Medical Office Administrator, Hamilton

    I took the MOA program many years ago (35+) and have worked in hospitals and some very prominent specialists offices (neurology, neurosurgery, orthopedics to name a few). I have always been interested in the medical profession, constantly reading medical books/health, a watching medical based TV programs. I worked for a neurologist who inspired me to always learn more. When my kids were of school age, I Decided to see what other areas of medical field I could pursue. I found an ad looking for a medical instructor at a private business school, applied and got the position and found out I really did not know too much. Each time I taught a new module I had to learn so much information - I loved it and want to help future MOAs be sponges to absorb as much information as possible to be great MOA. I inspire my students by having fun! I listen to them, ask questions, answer questions, show videos (almost everyday at the beginning of class). I give them information not found in their textbooks. I teach with overheads (use diagrams) have created Pathology slide shows for all my anatomy systems. Pictures are sometimes better than words. I think I am creative and the classroom itself has posters, articles, reference books for the students to use. The atmosphere is relaxed and my students enjoy coming to class. I love teaching and try to do different things so it is never boring. I am there for my students, they can talk to me. They are always positive as I re-enforce the light at the end of the tunnel - a job/career is what they want and we will help them as much as we can but it is their determination that will get them what they want.

  • Very Helpful

    Notlee Patterson - Personal Support Worker, Scarborough

    My instructor is excellent one and helped improve my already strong self-esteem. It also helped me to love and care for others. Also having a lot of knowledge for real life settings.

I like how they communicate with others.

    Melinda Constantino - Accounting and Payroll Administrator, Scarborough

They are all willing to help make the best for the students. ..Thank you CDI for making me more confidence to face the next challenge of my life.

My instructors have helped me to utilize the best of my abilities to strive for success, they have enabled me to set realistic goals and make a plan to achieve these goals. In the classroom/lab, one innovative aspect is the size of the classroom, meaning the number of students in the class. The classes at CDI have a small number of students which is very beneficial since this means there is a low student to teacher rate, and in turn students receive more one on one time with instructors. Overall I have had a pleasant experience on campus. The staff is very pleasant and friendly. As well the students are delightful to be around. All in all the CDI atmosphere is a very positive, welcoming one.

    I have taught and mentored students for various I.T courses. I have been in the profession for over a decade.

  • A Meaningful Life

    Stan Hymad - Scarborough

    I have been teaching business at the post-secondary level since 1978. I have taught for Mohawk College, McMaster University, George Brown College, Seneca College, and have owned a franchise of one of Canadas largest private career colleges. In addition I have extensive business experience including retail merchandising and management consulting. After I sold my successful retail business, I decided that I wanted to give something back to society. It is my mission to challenge my students every day by encouraging them to never give up, reach for the sky and think for themselves. It is my duty to serve as a role model... to help others in their quest for a happy life and a successful career. I wanted to become the teacher I never had. I always felt that too many of my teachers were only concerned about making a living, and that their students were only an afterthought. I feel that it is my duty to help my students to self-actualize... to be the best they can be both for themselves, and for their families and society as a whole. It is my firm belief that our students can accomplish anything they want to. It is out duty to guide, encourage and shepherd them so that they can grow emotionally and have successful careers and meaningful lives.

I inspire students in the following ways: 1: I try to show what a stark difference a good education makes in achieving a successful career and a happy life for the student and family. 2: I point to classic examples of people who have become famously successful in face of the most trying circumstances in their lives. 3: I strongly believe in the resilience and power of the human spirit to triumph over the greatest setbacks, so I urge students to find that determination, strength and perseverance within them to succeed.

  • Life Changing

    Rolando Cunanan - Information Systems Support Specialist, Mississauga

    I thought I already had enough skills/knowledge on my career. I have been working for 9 years as a senior technical support back home. When I moved to Canada I could not find a job so I decided to study so my skills can be upgraded. I searched the internet and found CDI College and I made the right decision. I have one of the best instructors I ever had. I learned a lot and my skills have broadened. Thanks to Sajid, he is a great instructor. Classrooms have the latest and high tech computers as well as helpful lectures and books. The staff are all great, special thanks to Mary and Marley for helping me be successful in my career. I have learned a lot of skills from simple PC troubleshooting to more complex problems. I am applying these skills at my new job as a PC technician and help desk support.

  • A Great Experiece

    My instructor makes a difference in my education everyday I attend class. Tory is easy to talk to and is very patient and understanding. Tory motivates and encourages her students in a way that makes them believe they have already achieved greatness. With her guidance, I am achieving a 90% average.

It is very important to me to have a wonderful teacher and I thank CDI for providing that to me. My overall experience has been very positive. The staff is great, friendly, and caring. I have only been here for three months and I know the best is yet to come. One concern I have is that CDI should advertise more because a lot of agencies did not know who CDI was when I did my research book. Also, I thought that students were screened in order to get in and I do not feel that is the truth.
