School History


We Are E.D.P.

In 1994, Felix Raytsin established Evolutionary Data Progressive Systems Inc. (EDPSI)as an employment agency catering to full-time and consulting professionals. EDPSI primarily focuses on connecting Information Technology (IT) experts, such as Computer Programmers, Quality Assurance Engineers, Business Analysts, System Architects, and related professionals, with rewarding job opportunities. Over time, EDPSI has grown to become one of the leading placement agencies in the tri-state area.

During their search for talented clients, the staff at EDPSI observed that many existing clients aspired to advance in their respective fields but lacked sufficient training opportunities provided by their employers. Recognizing the need for skills upgrading, Felix Raytsin joined forces with Natalia Nevidomsky, another IT expert, to establish E.D.P. Computer Consulting Inc. This new venture specialized in providing training programs for employed IT professionals seeking skills enhancement or specialization in various areas of IT. E.D.P. Computer Consulting Inc. operated under an exemption status granted by the New York State Education Department.

While E.D.P. Computer Consulting received numerous recommendations from former trainees, they had to turn away many interested students who did not meet the requirements for training under the State Education Department’s exemption status. Consequently, the founding partners of E.D.P. Computer Consulting recognized the need for more comprehensive and inclusive programs and courses to cater to a broader range of students, not solely limited to IT professionals. This realization led to the establishment of E.D.P. School of Computer Programming.

In 2001, E.D.P. obtained a license from the New York State Education Department to operate as a career school, supervised by the Bureau of Proprietary Schools Supervision. In October 2018, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education accredited the school.

Mr. Raytsin and Mrs. Nevidomsky, being technology professionals themselves, understood that graduates from other institutions often possessed theoretical knowledge but lacked practical skills crucial for career advancement. As a significant objective, E.D.P. School of Computer Programming, Inc. prioritizes equipping students with practical skills alongside theoretical understanding. The school employs teachers who have real-world work experience in their respective fields, with many instructors working in the industry during the day and teaching at the school in the evenings. This approach sets our institution apart from others.

E.D.P. School operates as a non-profit corporation, with Mr. Felix Raytsin serving as the CEO/School Director and Mrs. Natalia Nevidomsky as the Chief Administrator. The school has a governance board comprising professionals from various specialized career fields. These experts contribute to program decisions and help identify the educational needs of the community. We take pride in offering relevant and meticulously designed programs and courses that empower our students to succeed in the job market.
