Mission: To be the leading provider of career training with a specific interest in high demand job trends in America’s ever changing job market. The Aquarius Institute has been in business since 1996. Starting off in Chicago, Aquarius Institute began providing career training for job skills to individuals to meet the requirements of the ever changing technology related jobs. After a few years, Aquarius Institute moved into the City of Des Plaines in the year 2001. At the address of 911 East Touhy Avenue, Des Plaines, Aquarius Institute continued its business at this location until the year 2011. (Copies of the City of Des Plaines Business licenses from year 2001 to 2011 are enclosed for review.) Aquarius Institute at first started its business in providing Computer Information Systems training. Among Computer Information Systems training, we also provided training in the latest high demand software and hardware. We continued to provide I.T. training up until the year 2005. Aquarius Institute realized less job potential for the local individuals due to outsourcing of I.T. jobs to foreign countries (such as India, China, etc.) Therefore, in the year of 2005, Aquarius Institute took a tangent and started to provide more service related skills training in the Allied Medical Health Care field. Currently, the Allied Medical Health Care field is the best service field to be in. Health care training is also a high demand job growth sector due to the many technological advancements found in health care today. Another plus for the health care field currently is that many jobs are opening up due to America’s ageing population. Currently, Aquarius Institute provides training in medical diagnostic testing in the field of Ultrasound/Sonography Technology and MRI Technology. We also provide training in Medical Assistant, Phlebotomy, EKG Technician and Medical Billing & Coding certification. Aquarius Institute is known to provide actual job skills training in order to have our students gain real job skills. We have classroom lectures with live demonstrations of job skills during lectures, as well as individual hands on practice lab sessions. Furthermore, we require our students to complete several hundreds of hours of clinical internship at our affiliated medical diagnostic imaging facilities. Due to Aquarius Institute’s consistent efforts in providing high demand job skills training, we have several thousands of our graduates currently employed in the American work force in the fields of Information Technology and Health Care with an annual income of $40,000 to $180,000.
