New Professions Technical Institute was founded in 1992 to offer educational opportunities to support the rapidly growing South Florida economy. The city of Miami was chosen as the site for our Campus because of its multicultural setting and its ever-increasing economic base. The South Florida community with its abundant resources of skills and unskilled labor gave way to the creation of a vocational institute whose primary mission is to train for employment in a variety of fields. We started our first class in October 1993, and after a quarter of a century we continue to promote, “Education as the Key to Success.”


New Professions Technical Institute recognizes education as the absolute key to success for an individual’s professional and personal evolvement. To reach this goal, we commit to make available educational programs that reflect the current professional trends in different career paths.


The philosophy of New Professions Technical Institute is one shared by all and referred to as the “Triangle of Commitment.” This triangle consists of three corners representing the Institution, the Student Body, and our Community. This Institution referred to as NPTI is a place to gather and under the guiding hand of our administrators and educators, train all those who enter seeking knowledge in a chosen field. The Student Body is comprised of a multitude of experiences and cultures with the sole purpose of learning a new career or enhancing a particular skill. The Community, which we are a part of, which we all serve and which we all benefit from, grows as a direct result of the quality of life enjoyed by all. This “Triangle of Commitment” shines like a beacon of hope for all to see.


We will always advocate, encourage and support innovation and creativity, utilizing technology where appropriate. We visualize our well-prepared graduate students becoming assets to their chosen profession with the academic and hands-on practical training needed for immediate employment.
