Student Reviews

  • Hired Right Away

    Sam - Medical Office Assistant

    I use to be a stay at home mom but then became a single mother, I took courses at CDI College so that I can spend more time with my daughter at home. I was introduced into a brand new field which gave me a 9-5 job that keeps me busy. Working in a medical office I was able to use all the skills I learned while at CDI College.

  • Very Professional

    Nicoletta Castellani - Legal Administrative Assistant

    All of the instructors have been passionate about their respective fields and that comes through in their dedication to helping us learn. John Sterk, in particular, is willing to tailor his teaching style to meet the learning needs of his students. I have been very impressed with the staffs willingness and drive to see every student succeed. I love that CDI Victoria views post-secondary education as a part of the service industry and treats it as such with consideration and professionalism.

  • I Love This School

    Cody MonkHynes - Legal Administrative Assistant

    Our instructor helped make a difference in my education by always taking the time to answer our questions and making sure we are prepared for the next part. All of our teachers have been employed in the field that they taught and we learned a lot from them. We have also gone on field trips to the court house and a working law firm. So far the campus has been really good and I have not had any problems yet. I love this school!

  • Calmed My Nerves

    Rebecca Zellinsky - Legal Administrative Assistant

    Our instructor helped make a difference in my education-- having someone with first hand knowledge of my potential career helps calm my nerves about working. I also enjoy when they take us on field trips. I love how the staff always greets you by name. It is very welcoming here and there is also great student facilities. Overall great experience.

  • Makes Things Fun

    Lesa Vella - Legal Administrative Assistant

    The instructors having the knowledge they have is the best teaching we could possibly get. They are all friendly and helpful. Their knowledge is surpassing anything we could get from a textbook. The instructors always make class time interesting. The field trips doing educational tours of legal related agendas have been awesome. All of the staff have been more than accommodating and helpful. The campus is clean and always available to access materials needed. My choice in CDI college has been great. I was nervous as an adult learner and everyone here has made it a wonderful experience.

  • Grew as a Person

    Cindy Lake

    Our instructor, Michelle, is open, honest and approachable. Which makes asking for help so much easier. What is innovative about our labs/classrooms is the ability to access classroom materials (power point) outside of school My overall experience was a positive one that allowed me to grow as a student and as a person.

  • Well Supported

    Latoya Francois - Health Care Assistant

    Our instructor helped make a difference in my education with the experience she brings to class. She explains the work/text more than once. And two or three times, she allows us to ask questions and gives us answers. I love the provided iPads and the free internet. Overall, we learned a lot at CDI ... I feel that the information we are getting is good and the texts are well supported.

  • Awesome Classes

    Bill Bystnyk - Community Health Care Worker

  • Passionate Teachers

    Jungha Shin - Health Care Assistant

  • Great Place to Grow

    Sophia Miles

    Our instructor helped make a difference to my education with her patience, ability to expand on points of question and by encouraging in class discussions. What is innovative about our class room is our use of iPads with texts downloaded, free internet, overhead projector. My overall experience on campus to date has been very positive. I find the staff to be positive, informative and extremely supportive. My fellow students also follow this line... a great place to grow forward. After much research on Colleges within Victoria, CDI came most recommended. Some may have the saying, coming to school is a means to an end. I look at CDI as a means to a beginning!

  • Very Kind Staff

    Peter Jai - Health Care Assistant

    Our instructor helped make a difference in my education by kindly answering my questions. The iPads (instead of textbooks) feel very innovative.

  • Would Come Back

    Brittany Fagan

    Michelle has made a huge difference in my education by being exceptionally encouraging towards my career choice. She is helpful and will understand the material and use her experience to integrate knowledge of what is expected in this field. I really enjoy our classroom seating structure. I have had an amazing experience with CDI. The director is very approachable if needed be. The school is well run. The practicum co-coordinator is very prompt to find something suitable. Faculty is professional and approachable. If more programs of interest in the child/youth field are offered I would be definitely coming back. I have made several referrals to other people that are wanting to go back to school.

  • Very Welcoming

    Kayla Wrightson

    Michelle is a great teacher! She is very helpful and is always happy to further explain things if someone does not understand the material. Michelle also welcomes students into her office to get extra help if needed. All teachers and other staff have made my experience really good. Everyone is professional. All staff care about your well-being and your education. I really appreciate that the campus director checks in on students and he knows where each student is going for practicum.

  • Practical Experience

    Jolene Tory

    Our Instructor, Michelle, has practical experience that she integrates into the learning we recieve. She brings a realism and professional mannerism to all related work and relevant subjects. The iPads we use are innovative, they give us an electronic and technical advantage with books, labs and media. It brings an edge to CDI compared to public colleges and universities. The small class numbers, technology and personalization of learning styles brings this school experience about that of public schooling. Cultural awareness has been key to my learning. CDI brings, with open welcomeness, a level of cultural awareness geared to learning that is relevant to my area of study.

  • Feeling Comfortable

    Maria Llagas - Health Care Assistant

    I have my Nursing Diploma, and have been a nurse since 2006. I taught LPN since Feb 2011 (CDI Laval), and have been teaching HCA since Feb 2013 (CDI Victoria). I would like to have students have enough practice knowledge when they go to work force and not just knowledge to pass the exam. I usually use real life examples to help them learn. With personal experience as a student and now as a teacher, I want the students to be comfortable with me and in the classroom so they could ask questions regarding topics and help them understand the material. For me, this will help them gain knowledge and practical skills to be ready for the workforce.

  • Desire to Help

    Chris Velasco

    I have an MBA and have been in this field for over 10 years. (What inspired me to pursue this career) was my desire to help students grow and achieve their goals. (I inspire my students) by telling positive stories, interesting, current and relevant stories about business and career growth. I think private education provides better education for students than public entities. This is because we take great care in providing excellent services to students.

  • Willing To Help

    Kelly Bemister - Legal Administrative Assistant

    I feel as though the instructors take pride in knowing that their students know the information they are teaching. If they do not then they are more than willing to help out before or after class. I have nothing but good things to say about my experience at CDI college.
