At HTI, the faculty and students are committed to a mutual process of learning and development. Learning takes place in the classroom, at student social events, from community outreach to service learning experiences, and through professional internships. In all of these environments, students learn to be self-directed and become life-long learners. Our average student to instructor ratio of 14:1 fosters a close-knit, collaborative environment where students receive the attention and support they need.
Before beginning a new program, students attend a one-week orientation in preparation for the academic rigors of short-term modularized training. Orientation week is filled with personal and professional foundation development exercises, discussions, and activities that focus on the values, behaviors, and techniques necessary for success at HTI and in life in general.
Instructors advise students on their academic progress on a continuous basis. The Allied Health Careers Project Director and the Student Services Coordinator are available to advise you on personal growth, professional development, and academic success.
HTI makes community service projects a part of every module. Students have the opportunity to ho`iho`i (give back) to the community through various volunteer activities, such as, helping to clean lo`i kalo, preparing and serving food at soup kitchens, and assisting in operations at homeless shelters.
To foster the values and culture of HTI, a variety of enjoyable events are planned for students during each semester. HTI also hosts quarterly `Ohana Nights to welcome family and friends and provide information about training opportunities the school offers.
