Fortis College Arrives In Cutler Bay

CUTLER BAY, Fla. — Fortis College, a leading post-secondary education institution, has opened a location in Cutler Bay. The school, which is part of a network of more than 35 colleges and institutes offering career-based certificate, diploma and degree-granting programs in 14 states, recently opened its newest campus at 19600 South Dixie Highway, Suite B in Cutler Bay.

Fortis College, Cutler Bay currently is enrolling students for September day and evening classes. Initial course offerings include an Associate Degree program in Accounting and a diploma program in Electronic Systems Technology (EST).

The Accounting degree program is designed to educate students to prepare for financial occupations that require high levels of analysis, evaluation, statistical theory and design including the ability to prepare financial statements that are in compliance with generally accepted accounting principles.

The EST program focuses on low-voltage electronic system professions and includes installation, troubleshooting and repair skills for home theater, audio, video, fiber optics, security and computer networking systems as well as learning national/state regulations and building codes.

“We are excited to open this modern, fully equipped facility with contemporary labs supported by wireless classrooms,” said Acting Campus Director Richard Zaiden. “We believe our campus will be a strong educational resource for the community, showcasing Cutler Bay as a leader in educational opportunities that help meet the growing demand for quality professionals.”

The building was designed with careful attention to the technological needs of the students. The library offers both conventional textbook resources and a digital library while all classrooms have access to online digital media.

“From talking boards to audiovisual presentations, the building is completely wired for interactive learning,” explained Zaiden. “Our instructors can project the syllabus on walls using our online instructional media and students can work from notebook computers in the classroom. It’s a win-win situation.”

The campus is easily accessible both by car and public transportation. Conveniently located right off the Florida Turnpike Exit 12 (Caribbean Blvd exit) at U.S. 1 and with a bus stop adjacent to the property, the campus can be easily reached by students from Miami to Key Largo.

As part of the Fortis network, the Cutler Bay campus benefits from expanded resources, enhanced expertise, access to higher level educational program offerings and technology, and the strength in numbers an affiliation with dozens of other campuses brings.
