PC Professor is particularly proud of its large list of student and alumni support services which include the following:
Academic assistance is available from the instructors and lab supervisor. Students that need additional assistance are asked to see the school’s Director who has the discretion to arrange additional tutoring to assist those in need.
Graduates may audit a refresher course paying only the registration fee as space allows. Additionally, graduates of vocational courses may contact the placement assistance office for computer-related job referrals at any time.
Students in vocational courses may request additional career advice and occupational demand information from their Admissions Representative. Our “open door” policy exists for this very purpose and students are encouraged to discuss their career and occupational concerns with our staff at any time.
One goal of PC Professor’s vocational programs is to prepare students for national vendor certification. We do not profess to know the exact questions that will be asked nor can we guarantee success on any exam. All tests are administered by an outside entity and are usually considered to be quite difficult. Tests may be taken at any PC Professor campus or at any PearsonVue Testing Center throughout the world. The tuition for the class does not include the national certification testing fee.
PC Professor information can be found on this website. Students are asked to register on the site and check regularly for any announcements, updates and/or modifications pertaining to this catalog. Additionally, a customer service feedback form is on the web site for all to use. Students are asked to submit ideas, suggestions, and/or comments with the assurance that each will be taken very seriously.
PC Professor does not offering counseling services, but if needed, referrals will be made to community resources. Such referrals may include mental health clinics, medical clinics, homeless shelters, doctors, food pantries, transportation dilemmas, disability obstacles, legal problems, unemployment offices, senior agencies or other community organizations which may be able to assist students in need. Our school maintains a database of local social service agencies and it is available to PC Professor students at no charge. Simply use the “Contact Us” form if you would like to request free access at any time.

Job Placement Assistance
Vocational students who have achieved national certification status may request assistance with placement and will be furnished with company names and contact information for employment possibilities. Inquiries made to the school from potential employers are posted online and/or compiled in a logbook kept by the school’s Placement Director. Referrals to resume writing firms, IT recruiters, local networking groups and helpful career articles are all available upon request.
While PC Professor may attempt to assist students and alumni in finding entry-level employment in computer-oriented careers, we can cannot guarantee employment, job availability, salary levels, job satisfaction or vendor certification. Be wary of any school that does.
Moreover, we are proud to have a “Frequent Hire Program” in place which encourages neighboring businesses to hire our certified graduates as they graduate from our career classes. The employer saves the cost of an expensive help wanted ad and our qualified students get first dibs on the open IT positions. Employers have come to expect superb results from PC Professor graduates and have been using our school as an IT hiring resource since 1989.
