Pohs Institute of today is proud to continue this tradition, and has one primary focus: The success of our students.

The Pohs Institute Assurance Policy

This assures students the opportunity to return for pre-licensing training or review for up to 12 months from the date of enrollment at no additional tuition as long as they have completed their financial obligation. Pohs Institute is available to assist you with all your pre-licensing and continuing education requirements.

Our Service Goes Above and Beyond

Personalized Review

When a student is having trouble with course material, we arrange for a Personalized Review of the student’s academic performance. This allows students to zero in on those areas of study that need extra focus.

Our Committment

We recognize that every adult learns at a different level. Some are visual learners. Some are auditory learners, and some need to have "hands-on" learning experiences. We incorporate all these learning styles in our approach, with lectures, hand-outs, books and computer testing disks. We also offer private tutoring when an adult learner feels it is a necessity.

"No other school offers the Pohs Institute level of service. It's that simple."
