Most colleges and universities today are more concerned with research and profit than educating students. Omnitech, founded by Charlton Carlos Lester in 1998, is different. Charlton Lester founded the school with the intention of helping general community members as well as veterans and the unemployed. The school is certified by the Veterans Administration to administer GI Bill and Post-9/11 Former Military and Veterans Training. Omnitech Institute also offers training to Workforce Investment Act unemployed individuals.
