Want to make a difference?
Want a career and not a job?

If you answered yes to these questions, maybe you should consider entering the health care field. Express Training Services was founded in 2004 by Sherri and Tony Kalishman. Sherri and Tony have been in the health care industry for many years. Sherri is a registered nurse with over 20 years experience in direct patient care. She also has extensive teaching and management experience. Tony has a vast amount of experience in administration, management, and operations for nurse aide competency testing throughout the United States. Together, they had a dream of being able to assist adult learners of all levels of education to enter the health care field. Their first school opened in Gainesville, Florida in 2004, and they've been helping students realize their life goals ever since.

They understand that many people who would love to start a career in health care choose not to take the first step for a variety of reasons, the most common being the time it takes to get trained and prepared properly. Express Training Services works with anyone who is motivated to pursue a career in health care and make a difference in people’s lives. Sherri and Tony work with a dynamic group of instructors throughout the United States. Everyone at Express Training Services believe that there is no such thing as a “throwaway” student. They offer tutoring and additional sessions for all students free of charge.
