About  Us

Our History

Associated Technical College, 1670 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90017 was founded in 1967 as the Career Academy. The Career Academy was acquired by the National Institute of Arts and Sciences in 1969 and by Associated Colleges of California in 1973. The school was purchased and became a division of Diversified Education Company on January 1,1975.

Our  Philosophy

Our institutional objective is to provide oriented training programs to help the student develop the quality job skills needed for success in career areas offering long-range opportunities. Our programs are designed to put the student in the job market as quickly as possible consistent with the amount of training needed to gain employment. We provide hands-on, practical (learn-by-doing), training in fields where there is a demand for qualified entry-level employees. Flexible morning, afternoon and evening schedules allow students to finish their training even if employed before graduation.



Associated Technical College is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges of Technology and is approved by the California Bureau of Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education


Proof of institutional eligibility, licensure and accreditation may be reviewed in the office of the school director during regular business hours.
