Why Choose Us?
- Our 114 years of expertise and our proven track records in successful job placement
statistics, is a key indicator of accountability and public trust offered by Willis College. We believe that adults do better in a smaller size class. Adults need to question, debate and
participate.

- Most of our students require two very specific things. 1) Flexible, frequent start dates and 2) regular, predictable class times. Some courses have over 12 start dates in a year and a regular class schedule creates time for family and/ or a part time job.

- Our programs are compressed but complete. That means that we deliver the training over a very short time span.

- We help prepare students to conduct an effective career strategy, provide them with online job search tools and Government Security Clearance services as part of our education process.
