JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Jacksonville's Southern Career College introduces a new $100,000 computer lab for students studying Network Administration at the higher education institution. Students in the program gain employable skills in information technology network design, configuration, administration and troubleshooting and can look forward to careers as IT Analysts, A+ Certified Technicians, Customer Support Engineers, Network Field Technicians or Client Server Technologists.

The city of Jacksonville was recently ranked by Forbes as the #6 city in the United States for tech jobs, ahead of even the Silicon Valley region.

Southern Career College is located on the 11th floor at 9550 Regency Square Blvd near the Regency Square Mall. The college's current programs of study include the Information Technology Network program as well as Computer Drafting & Design, Consumer Information, Medical Assistant, Medical Assistant Technician, Nursing Assistant and Phlebotomy.

Southern Career College is owned by Dade Medical College, a private post-secondary institution teaching allied healthcare and nursing, headquartered in Miami, FL.  A Dade Medical College campus is set to open early this summer on the 12th floor of the same building and will offer Associate of Science and Bachelor's of Science degree programs in Nursing and Associate of Science degree programs in Diagnostic Medical Ultrasound, Diagnostic Cardiac Sonography and Massage Therapy. Both SCC and Dade Medical College plan to upgrade and expand their Jacksonville facilities as well as their curriculum offerings in the coming year.

As the transition progresses, Dade Medical College projects to add an additional 60 jobs to the already pre-existing staff at both institutions.

 "In this day of simulation and online education, we cannot remove the hands-on, real-life experience component from certain programs and Information Technology is one of these. As Dade Medical College continues its integration and implementation process with SCC, we will work continuously to upgrade our facilities in order to constantly improve the quality of the hands-on education that our students receive," says Ernesto Perez, the company's President and CEO. "It's a new day at Southern Career College and rest assured that we will stop at nothing in order to meet our mission of giving each and every student a quality, outcome-based education."
