Post Secondary Programs

We offer a wide range of high quality job training.

The Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and Technology (CPI) opened its doors as a technical training center in 1969. Over the years, CPI has continuously expanded its technical training programs and services to include continuous day, evening, and weekend schedules. Technical training at CPI serves a workforce seeking new careers and workers in need of skills-upgrade training. As a result of its impact on economic and workforce development, CPI is recognized as one of the finest post-secondary technical training schools in Pennsylvania today. Well-equipped laboratories and classrooms, highly-skilled instructors, and curricula based on industry standards and certifications are CPI hallmarks. Its convenient location along the I-99 corridor and adjacent to I-80 affords CPI an opportunity to function as a regional workforce training facility.

CPI is accredited by the Pennsylvania State Board of Vocational Education and the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC).
