Overview & History
Coast Career Institute was originally established in 1968 as Coast Sewing Machine Company. These businesses started out with the selling and repair of sewing machines.This led to the establishment of the vocational training programs of sewing machine repair and operator in 1991 and incorporating a name change to encompass our Floral/Bridal Programs. This synergistic relationship between the programs and its customers also lead to the subsequent establishment of a fashion design program.
After an initial period of sustained growth, the management identified opportunities to further diversify its training programs to include Optical Dispensing Technician in June of 2001, Cake Decorating in November of 2003 and Private Security Guard in April of 2004.
In May of 2010 we have added Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Medical Assistant, and Solar Installation programs to continue to provide the community with opportunities for growth through career-oriented training programs.We are approved by our current state agency the Bureau for Private Post Secondary Education in the Department of Consumer Affairs.
We are an institution with an established growth plan, and we look forward to the future with the determination to implement this plan.
