)-- Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and corporate training, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Los Angeles Harbor College. Los Angeles Harbor College will be offering all of Career Step’s online training programs to its students, and the new programs will prepare students for careers in the healthcare, technology and administration industries.
“We are very excited about this partnership with Career Step,” said Sergio Soto, Los Angeles Harbor College Program Coordinator. “We have been impressed with the depth of the program content and believe they will be an excellent option for our students interested in the flexibility of online training and preparing for a new career in a year or less.”
The healthcare, technology and administration industries are currently experiencing significant new job growth.

The Career Step curriculum, now being offered to students at Los Angeles Harbor College, provides the opportunity to train online for these growing career fields. The programs incorporate feedback from employers with many of the courses preparing students to earn third-party certifications. Specific industry associations have also evaluated the courses, and students also receive extensive graduate support to help turn their education into a job.
“We firmly believe that education is one of the best ways for people to improve their lives, and we are excited about this partnership with Los Angeles Harbor College because it brings the opportunity to train for a new career to more people,” said Ryan Ewer, Career Step Vice President of Enrollments and Marketing. “This partnership is great for Career Step and Los Angeles Harbor College, but really what it comes down to and what we’re really excited about is the life-changing opportunity it represents for individuals in the community.”
The job-focused training in these growing career fields makes these programs an excellent choice for those looking to train relatively quickly for a new career. For more details on the session or training programs, please visit CareerStep.com/lahc or contact an Academic Advisor at 1-877-225-7151.
