The Concord Campus

In 2002, we started providing healthcare education in Northern California and other states. Our Concord campus is now one of seven locations throughout California. Currently, our IT program is offered at Concord and one other campus, Fremont.

We cater to extracurricular student needs by providing areas like a student lounge and an indoor café. To better serve our IT students, we strive to offer morning and evening sessions. We also employ a driven financial aid and career services team to help students take that first step toward their dream career.

Individual Workstations

At Concord, our IT program combines classroom and laboratory space to ensure easy accessibility. Every student can access individual computer workstations as well as the necessary tools, software, and hardware systems to accomplish their tasks.

Supervised Externship

The supervised externship is another great benefit of our IT program. Externships will expose you to “real world” IT issues that need to be addressed. Students can gain hands-on experience in IT troubleshooting, data configuration, data imaging and migration, network management, and program installation. Our ultimate goal is to help you transition to a full-time work environment in the IT field.

Unitek is the best. I can't imagine the number of students and graduates they have helped, including me personally.
