NJBIA President & CEO Michele Siekerka joined Sen. Vin Gopal and local government officials at the recent ribbon cutting for ACI Medical & Dental School’s new location at 215 Broad St. in Eatontown, where students are training for in-demand careers in the healthcare industry.
Local officials said they were excited to see the former Fred G. Steelman School, a 113-year-old historical landmark in Eatontown, transformed into ACI’s state-of-the art educational facility featuring clinical labs, student workstations and expansive classrooms. The larger space allows ACI to train more students than ever before for exciting careers working as medical and dental assistants, EKG technicians, phlebotomists, patient care technicians, medical and dental billing specialists, and more.
“Right now, the healthcare industry is struggling to find the highly qualified workers it needs,” Siekerka said. “ACI Medical and Dental is doing tremendous work here in this beautiful new facility to provide students with amazing career opportunities and help alleviate the healthcare worker shortage.”
Monmouth County Commissioner Director Tom Arnone and Deputy Director Commissioner Sue Kiley presented ACI’s President Frank Preston with a certificate of recognition at the Sept. 9 event.
“ACI is one of the top technical schools in NJ offering educational programs in the medical and dental field with hands-on training and job placement assistance,” Kiley said. “The Board of Monmouth County Commissioners applauds your efforts towards the betterment of our community and the lives of these students.”
ACI Medical & Dental School is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA-CESS). The school boasts a 93% graduation rate, 85% employment rate, and 89% credentialed rate on national certification exams.
