  • IBT has the program for you!


IBT offers hands-on, technical programs for students interested in in-demand careers in the medical field and in the trades. All of IBT’s programs train students for careers with high job growth and plenty of room for advancement. Did you know the medical field is rapidly growing? If you are considering a career in which you help others, look at IBT’s Allied Health professions: Medical Assistant, Medical Biller/Coder, Ultrasound Technician, and Lab Assistant/EKG Technician/Phlebotomist.  IBT also offers a program to train certified Massage Therapists.

  • IBT offers flexible scheduling and short program lengths.


We know our students are busy people - many of you juggle school with part-time or even full-time jobs, others balance their training with family and caretaking responsibilities. That’s why IBT offers flexible scheduling, with day and evening courses to accommodate busy schedules.

And IBT understands the need for short program lengths, so our students can get the training they need to quickly enter the field and earn a better living. Most of IBT’s programs can be completed in less than one year. HVAC and Electrical training programs can be completed in as few as 10.5 months, and many of our medical programs can be completed in as few 9 months.

  • IBT is accredited through ACCET and ACCSC, and every program at IBT leads to industry-recognized certifications.

At IBT, we are held to the highest standards by our accrediting bodies, the Accrediting Council on Continuing Education and Training (ACCET) and the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC).

To maintain our accreditation, we are required to meet high standards for graduation rates and job placement rates. At IBT, student success is what we do! Visit Our Accreditation page to learn more.
