National Career College’s History


National Career College (NCC) was founded as Dental Technology Institute of Southern California (DTISC), specializing in training Dental Laboratory Technicians.

After three successful years of operation, DTISC received institutional accreditation from the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) and changed its name to National Career College with an expanded program offering training in the allied health field.

National Careers College relocated to the City of Van Nuys, CA.

After five years of successful growth, the campus moved to its present facility in Panorama City, CA. National Career College continues to expand its programs at its new location and offers medical career-focused programs and training.

National Career College opened an additional classroom location at 14547 Titus St. Panorama City, CA 91402. Located just .4 miles away from our main campus, this site offers an educational setting where students can conveniently access public transportation, local food, shopping, and public agencies within walking distance. The additional classroom location is available to students in the Medical Assistant, Medical Office Specialist, and Dental Assistant programs only.
