Mission and History

35 years ago, At-Home Professions pioneered the distance-education model for new career training.

Our goal: At-Home Professions was founded in 1981 with a goal to make education and a professional career attainable—anytime, anywhere.

It worked: At-Home Professions grew quickly after it was founded. We continued to expand and help more students reach their career goals.

Building trust with quality education: In 2004, the school took a huge step forward and gained accreditation from the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC), which is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a recognized accrediting agency for distance learning schools.

Today, At-Home Professions is still growing and adapting to meet the needs of adults seeking professional careers. We offer high-quality healthcare certificates that provide a foundation of knowledge for students to train for a professional career in the healthcare industry.

We're here for you: Our focus remains on our students every day. We continue to build on our history to bring you the very best distance education training. We are here to help you reach your goals for a healthcare career and a successful future.
