What Our Students Say About Training & Certifications

"I'm done with the class I love it. I learned so much! The instructor made the class easy and not boring. " - FSET Student

"The course was excellent and I definitely recommend it. The Instructor was knowledgeable and the design of the course was informational and used many examples of discussion points within Human Resource Concepts. The Instructor also gave direction to all resource tools and examples of study schedules to use prior to sitting for the exam. I feel prepared with the tools and direction to be successful in the exam. The class I took sits for an exam in December 2020. Also an unexpected bonus is the learning management system which I have access to until December 2021. Overall I had a very good experience and gained knowledge from the course. Thank you and the other New Horizons staff. " - WIOA Participant

Read this email from a recent New Horizons of Wisconsin student.

"I just recently earned my certificate in Microsoft Azure Cloud Computing (AZ-900) and Entry Level IT. I haven't really had the chance to truly sell those skills, but just updating LinkedIn and personal profiles on other job board has compelled other companies to reach out to me about IT positions--I would have NEVER thought this would be possible for me. Not only that, the courses themselves also helped me see the ways in which this knowledge can deliver me onto even grander, entrepreneurial pursuits.  

New Horizons literally came to me during a time when I (and understandably, much of the world) did not know what was next in terms of gainful employment and future career options, giving me hope for new possibilities..."

Your certification will lead you to a great job without needing a 4-year degree! Research shows you don’t need a four-year degree to get a job in IT. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, about one-quarter (26 percent) of IT workers in the US do not hold a bachelor’s degree or higher.

If you feel you have limited experience or skills, certifications are an effective way to quickly ramp up the knowledge and skills needed for a new career in a matter of months! Professionals that hold a certification can land a new job with at least a 25% higher starting pay.

Once you complete your certifications, you’ll notice that hiring managers will call you back much quicker. Why is that? Because your certification is exactly what they’re looking for and you stand out from the competition.
