CBT College, an academic and career institution based in the Greater Miami area, is celebrating 25 years of tremendous growth, community service and empowering education.
“Since opening our doors in 1988, our college has helped thousands of students find their career path, ultimately forming a stronger workforce in Miami-Dade County,” said Peru-born Fernando Llerena, founder of CBT College. “We will continue to strengthen our professional relationships within these communities in order to build a better future for our students.”
Family owned and operated for two generations, the institution’s history is symbolic of the Llerena family’s journey. Two of CBT’s five campuses cater to its large Hispanic student population with specialized trade programs including A/C Refrigeration Technology and Electricity, which are taught both in Spanish and in English. CBT recently conducted its 56th graduation ceremony, bringing multiple employment opportunities to businesses in the community. CBT College provides career training with a focus on technology and sciences at its five campuses across Miami-Dade County, including West Kendall, Flagler, Hialeah, Cutler Bay and Miami Gardens.
