CBT College, an academic and career institution based in the Greater Miami area, is celebrating 25 years of tremendous growth, community service and empowering education. To honor this milestone, the college is hosting an exclusive pre-gala VIP reception where Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado, Hialeah Mayor Carlos Hernandez and Sweetwater Mayor Jose M. Diaz will recognize its achievements.

"Since opening our doors in 1988, our college has helped thousands of students find their career path, ultimately forming a stronger workforce in Miami-Dade County," said Peru-born Fernando Llerena, founder of CBT College. "We will continue to strengthen our professional relationships within these communities in order to build a better future for our students."

Family owned and operated for two generations, the institution's history is symbolic of the Llerena family's journey. Two of CBT's five campuses cater to its large Hispanic student population with specialized trade programs including A/C Refrigeration Technology and Electricity, which are taught both in Spanish and in English. CBT recently held their 56th graduation ceremony, bringing multiple employment opportunities to businesses in the community.

CBT College is also a proud member of Service Members Opportunity Colleges (SOC) and participates in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program.
