Indigo is unlike any other college or post-secondary school. Our priority is to train the very best dental assistants and office administrators, then help them land great jobs. Because of this, we design each course with “the end in mind.” This means we form class sizes based on actual job openings in the Indigo Network, only admit those students we think are capable of filling those positions, and then train them with all the skills our industry experts have identified as important for today’s modern offices. We’re so confident Indigo graduates will land a great job that we offer the Indigo Promise. We also offer more advanced Registered Dental Assistant (“RDA”) certificates and an RDA exam preparation course.
At Indigo Career College, we believe in the convenience of online learning and the value of in-person training, which is why we teach using a hybrid model. You will have weekly coursework online supplemented with weekly in-person training or clinical sessions, focused on the skills you learned during the week. This model provides you with critical repetitions in a fun and flexible environment. Our curriculum is designed, and taught, by industry experts who have identified the most critical skills necessary to succeed in these fields. We schedule the program in a way that allows you to easily transition from your current job or schooling into a new career path. The combination of in-person clinical training, led by highly-skilled and experienced dental assistants in an actual dental office, along with a guaranteed externship with a local dental office, ensures you graduate as a confident and effective dental assistant.
