TACOMA, Wash., Sept. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The Tacoma community will gain improved access to post-secondary educational opportunities when UEI College opens a new campus location there in October. Originally known as United Education Institute (UEI), the UEI group of schools has evolved over the past four decades to expand its vocational and career training offerings. UEI operates 18 campus locations in California, Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, and now in Washington. The new Tacoma campus will initially serve about 200 students with room for growth and a planned expansion of offerings over the next few years. Pending all regulatory and accreditor approvals, the first cohort of students will start in Tacoma on Tuesday, October 26.
Programs launching at the new UEI College in Tacoma include Automotive Technician; Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC); Dental Assistant; Medical Assistant; and Medical Billing & Insurance Coding. UEI College offers both day and evening classes to accommodate students who are working while pursuing their education, as well as a hybrid learning model that combines online learning with hands-on training on campus. The new campus, conveniently located adjacent to Tacoma’s 72nd Street Transit Center (1415 E. 72nd Street, Tacoma, WA 98404), is a 30,000 square-foot facility that includes classrooms and training labs for the dental, medical, automotive and HVAC programs, as well as computer labs, lounge areas and a student resource center.
