Ashworth College evolved from a humble start in 1987, when it was a family-owned school offering a single course in real estate appraisal. The course was so popular that the founders knew they had filled a widespread need for high quality, career-focused distance learning. Thus, Professional Career Development Institute (PCDI) was born.
