Dawn Career Institute was founded in 1976 as Dawn Aeronautics Flight School. From 1976 to 1996, the school was approved and certified by the Federal Aviation Administration. In 1992, the school’s curriculum was expanded to include its first non-aviation program: Health Insurance Claims Examiner. Due to this addition, the institution’s name was changed to Dawn Training Centre to better reflect its expanding curricula.
In October of 2009, the School changed its name again to Dawn Career Institute, a name that even better embraces the variety of curricula available and presents a clearer vision of the School's future direction.
Dawn Career Institute’s commitment to career development excellence has been recognized by the Small Business Administration, who awarded founders Fran and Hollis Anglin the 2007 Small Business Persons of the Year Award for Delaware.

The committee meets at least twice per year to discuss curriculum, facilities, equipment, faculty and placement assistance. This ensures that programs and course content are kept up-to-date.
Dawn Career Institute provides students with the opportunity to work one-on-one with a representative of the placement assistance department, as well as take part in classroom discussions in order to learn the latest interviewing techniques. The department advises students on resume writing, introductory letters and personal development before graduation. Dawn makes a conscious effort to match each student’s capabilities and strengths to the most appropriate available positions.
