CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Classes start next month at a new technical school setting up operations at Norland Shopping Center.
Thompson Institute will begin offering classes in medical assisting, medical billing, computer specialist courses and office systems technology in late April, according to Barb Rose of Panoramic Visions, a Camp Hill, Pa., marketing firm representing the for-profit institute.
The parent company, Thompson Learning Corp., has campus sites in Harrisburg, Pa., and Philadelphia.
"They currently have lots of residents from Franklin County that are attending the Harrisburg (Pa.) school," Rose said. The campus will provide a more convenient location for those students, she said.
"Our research has shown that there is a need for quality, high-skill education in Chambersburg and the surrounding areas. With the increasing need for technical skills by so many employers, our number of applicants continues to grow," Thompson Institute Vice President for Operations Dom Montalvo said in a press release.
