cadteacher/vdci does not provide job placement. Because of our long-standing relationship within the San Diego/Southern California AEC (Architecture/Engineering/Construction) community, and also because of the strong reputation of our training program, many employers approach cadteacher/vdci and ask if we have any appropriate job candidates.
