As many of our friends know, ABC Training Center has been a staple in New York City’s medical career training field since the early 1970s. That’s a long time in this business and over the years we’ve witnessed countless changes all around us – political, technological, economic, etc. But all along, we’ve been fortunate to have had steady leadership that realizes that a successful business is one that can adapt and change with the world around us. Doomed are the companies that are not fast enough to change and adapt. (See Blockbuster Video Stores, Palm Pilots, CD/Record stores and, most recently Kodak, for proof of this.).
And while ABC has been quick to adapt to a changing world, there’s one area of our business that has pretty much stayed the same: our teachers. Instructors are the number one asset of any school and they are probably the single most important reason why thousands of our students have achieved career success over the years. At the end of every course, we ask students to write down an honest assessment of their instructors here at ABC. I’m always amazed at the responses we get, such as:
“I have no areas of concern. When you talk, you know what you are talking about. Thank you.”
“I want you to continue teaching at ABC because you make students successful.”
“You treat everybody with respect and encourage us to learn everything. Keep it up.”
“Amazing instructor, need not change anything. I loved the hands-on and her teaching patterns.”
“It was a pleasure to be with this teacher and because of her I would recommend this school to family and friends.”
“I really enjoyed the way you asked questions out loud and how we had to answer them. It really stuck in my head that way.”
“I’m never going to forget you. You are the best of the best. God bless you.”
“My teacher has an art to her teaching. She brings clarity and understanding to everything in class.”
“I enjoy coming to class, the atmosphere is awesome.”
“I love the way you teach… You are the best and I am happy to be in your class.”
So in the end it’s not the building you’re in that makes a good school. It’s not the computers and equipment you’re using. It’s not the textbooks, notes or study materials that you read. It’s the teachers, plain and simple. It’s been said that to succeed in business you should do one thing and do it better than everyone else. Here at ABC Training, we’ve been able to pick the best of the best when it comes to our esteemed instructors and we’re proud to say that we do that better than anyone else.
