I cannot tell you how much my skills from New Horizons has positively affected my life at work. The skills I've learned are going off the chart. New Horizons and OneStop gave me the opportunity for CompTIA Network+ and CCNA training which is making me glow at work. I am so appreciative to Lisa, Jeremy and Marcy from OneStop...oh and Marcus who is an awesome IT Mentor. My life has been forever changed. I strive to grow and learn everyday. It all started with my lay-off from Boeing. I thought my life was over. Not so. I am doing so well and I want you to share this with you. You’re awesome. I had to stop and say Thank You from the bottom of my heart. I was thinking of all my thankfulness as the year winds down.
“It was really a very good course specially if one is involved in using Access in web-based environment. and data sharing. The very-experienced instructor takes the students from one lesson and subsequently builds it up to the next level with practical applications enhancing retention in particular and the entire learning process in general, making the “investment” all worth it.”
Luis is a Navy veteran who exited service this year and was seeking civilian employment in information technology (IT), an entirely new field for him. Luis took advantage of veteran-focused services provided at the South Metro Career Center and enrolled in computer certification courses. One month after completing his training, he was hired as an IT specialist.Luis' success is important for many reasons. It demonstrates that workforce programs help veterans to successfully transition to civilian employment. It underscores that our programs have an impact on reducing the high veteran unemployment rate. And, we are proud that we can serve a veteran who selflessly served his country for many years.
"Carrie Williams (Apps Instructor) is very knowledgeable and extremely patient with everyone's learning curve."
"I didn’t know classes like CEH and CHFI existed until I was shown the courses at New Horizons, San Bernardino. I had done many things before on my own, but never had formal training. This is what I was lacking while looking for work. Everybody wants degrees, or certificates to land a job. The class material provided by EC- Council was accurate, informal, and filled in the gaps that I needed to take the certification tests while going for my BS. These courses were really fun and my instructor Dennis Thibodeaux was knowledgeable and great! I would recommend these courses to others in the same field."
NHLG, Michael says, “is perfect for the working professional. The course schedules can be tailored to meet your needs. The staff is courteous and professional and they are ready to help facilitate student success.” Michael has already passed the Microsoft PowerPoint exam and continues to excel in the ACE Web Specialist program.
"Getting training is important, but New Horizons (NHLG) is more than a training center. An integral part of the NH organization is the staff behind the great training opportunities. The persons in accounts, marketing, mentored learning support, IT, and front office staff all contributed to my excellent experience; each person was a supportive element to the organization and to its customers, the students. Each time I needed support to get a question answered or technical assistance a NH staff member was available to help me. Moreover, I had a few chats with staff in the break room where each time I was personally engaged with, I was asked where I was in my training process, and how was I achieving my occupational goals. Equally important, all the instructors I had were supportive and encouraging. I highly recommend NH as your training center, not just for training but for encouragement, support, and the human element of professional enrichment."
"Increasing my technical know-how in the IT industry and providing my company with the ability to obtain more government contracts was the driving force behind obtaining my certifications. My training advisor was insightful in working with me to formulate a training solution that was geared toward my specific needs. Ultimately it was the attention to detail and the willingness and support from my instructors and my educational guidance that I chose NHLG."
"The instructors were vibrant, knowledgeable, and exciting to learn from which greatly assisted in my overall success. Each instructor’s unique personality and teaching style made learning exciting and fun! It was very obvious that their dedication, academic preparation, and patience with re-explaining in order for me to fully comprehend was never bothersome. I will continue to recommend New Horizons for anyone wanting to sharpen their skills or earn certifications. Again, I offer my sincere appreciation and gratitude to the entire staff– everyone made a profound difference in my overall success."
