Our graduates have been successful in obtaining employment in their chosen field because our curriculum is developed to industry standards. Additionally, we have surveyed top companies in the local area regarding skill sets and experience needed so that our graduates are prepared to enter the workforce. We also provide basic job search and resume critique with each class and partner with the job developers that will be working with the students upon graduation so that the transition is smooth from training to employment.
