Hear from Our Students

It gave me the confidence I needed to look for the job that I was looking for. Even though I already had IT experience I was lacking confidence. The instructors that I had the opportunity to work with were able to guide me and support me throughout the program, answering questions when I needed the answer and support. My wife is very happy that I will not have that crazy schedule going in to work at different times during the week and on working holidays.

Francisco Ventura

I was looking to change careers from retail to IT. If you're looking for an opportunity to learn at your own pace while still working or taking care of a family, this course would be perfect for you. The courses don't overwhelm you. My coach was wonderful and was always available to answer any questions that I had. The job assistance team was fantastic. They have a wealth of knowledge and resources to get you noticed. I was very fortunate to get hired in just a few months after graduation.
