Program Testimonials

I was a little hesitant about taking an online class but Professor Warner made it feel like an actual college classroom setting. It was a great environment to learn in. The tools the Professor uses to teach work well for the class. I would consider taking more classes this way.

The certifications I earned through pursuing these programs landed me interviews at a number of hospitals, IT firms, and military development organizations, including Lockheed Martin in Mount Laurel. They also helped me earn the experience to land my current position as a Network Support Engineer and Service Desk Technician at a network operations center.
