History of the School

Concorde Career College, formerly Valley College of Medical and Dental Careers, has been operating since 1955. The original program offerings were Medical and Dental Assistant.

Over the years, the school has expanded its curricula to meet the increasing demands for trained allied health professionals in a variety of areas. The Vocational Nursing program, which prepares students for state licensure as licensed vocational nurses, was started in November 1966. The Respiratory Therapy program was added in 1969 and is fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC). 

In May 1986, Concorde Career Colleges, Inc., acquired the school. In 1989, the campus name changed to Concorde Career Institute.

In September 1997, the campus moved to its current location on Victory Boulevard in North Hollywood.

Approval to grant associate degrees occurred in 1999. On August 15, 2005, the campus name changed to Concorde Career College.
