SK3 Group, Inc.: HealthStaff Training Institute Expanding with New Location and Innovative Online Course Offerings

MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA--(Marketwire - Feb. 17, 2011) - SK3 Group, Inc. (PINK SHEETS:SKTO) today announced that HealthStaff Training Institute, which provides entry level vocational training to students for the healthcare field, is expanding with second location and new online course offerings. SK3's has signed an agreement to acquire HealthStaff Training Institute, with that acquisition pending.

HealthStaff Training Institute, Inc., founded in 1986 in Santa Ana, California, is a private vocational educational institution, training health care and professional personnel. As healthcare demands continue to increase, HSTI meets the need for qualified professional personnel, assistants and staff through a range of approved programs including training for Clinical Medical Laboratory Assistant, Clinical and Administrative Medical Assistant, Medical Assistant (Front/Back) Office, Drug & Alcohol Counseling, Medical Billing & Coding, Pharmacy Technician, Phlebotomy Technician CPT-1 and Computerized Office & Accounting. Also pending is the implementation of Certified Nursing Assistant/Home Health Aide certification programs.

HealthStaff's new online education platform allows students to customize their learning schedule, while complemented by in-class time where appropriate, and is a significant draw for students for whom travel to a campus is difficult. The new web interface will appear online in March, although students are already enrolled and participating in pharmacology, certified drug and alcohol counseling, and various continuing education units. As online course enrollment across the nation climbs, HealthStaff is prepared to meet the needs of those students seeking healthcare training. Its programs allow students to complete an entire education and begin seeking employment in as little as nine months, a distinct advantage during troubled economic times.

While the school expands its course offerings, it is also adding a new location in Temecula, California. The Temecula campus is the first of a planned series of expansion satellite locations to bring health staff education to the communities that need it most. HTSI Director Judee Tompkins says, "We are thrilled to be received so well in Santa Ana, and want to make the same educational opportunities and stepping stones available to students elsewhere. We will be scaling our educational model to fit the communities we feel we can best serve, beginning with Temecula."

HTSI also plans to apply for Title IV accreditation this year, which would allow students to receive government funding to attend school.

SK3 recently announced the pending acquisition of PRN Registry, a healthcare staffing agency providing personnel to serve in positions throughout the southern California healthcare community. PRN specializes in around-the-clock staff placement, serving clients 365 days a year. PRN recently announced its intention to continue its growth by expanding geographically into Northern California.

While pursuing additional acquisitions for its healthcare services portfolio, SK3 is simultaneously completing the audits that will allow it to re-qualify as a fully reporting company under Section 12 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934.
