"I had my final interview for the Service Delivery Analyst position today. About two hours after, the IT director called me and unofficially offered me the position. $60k starting salary, plus full benefits and opportunity for 5 percent bonus. I just wanted to say thank you for the help that you have provided from the beginning. It feels amazing to be starting my career. I am so excited that I need to go run around for a while." -Jeff

"I've been at Boeing for one month, and I am doing the usual apprentice stuff, and learning a lot, including running wires and terminating jacks. I am having a great time so far!" -Allen

"Instructors Dave [Skeen] and Laura [Robertson] are two of the best people I have ever met. Their expertise in their field was amazing, and they were willing to help any student with any topic. I was treated well, and with respect. My experience couldn't have been better." -Aaron.

"As a hands-on learner, I appreciated that [the instructor] always made sure we had an abundance of hands on experiences. We worked on fiber optic cables, spliced our own test cables, cut and attached wires, tested and made sure they worked correctly-it was so much better than just being shown an image on a PowerPoint presentation or book work." -Jose.
