Whiteville, NC, United States
Instructor – Information Technology – Southeastern Community College
I have been working on computers for over 30 years and was not able to gain many certifications because of the cost. The MTA certification path has provided practical certifications that I can gain and also implement in my classroom. I wanted to experience the exams before encouraging my students to take these. We have now implemented these certifications as a part of our classes and program. The changes for my students is incredible.
I have implemented five certifications into our programs as a final exam for my students. They now leave with not only a degree but certifications that help them get jobs. The program was started this year so most of our students will not graduate till next year. I expect the number who find jobs immediately will increase. I am so excited about giving these students a great start on a new career.
