Success with Microsoft Access

“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.”

Navy Veteran Hired as IT Specialist

Luis Salvatierra 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.

Success with EC-Council Material

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.

Working Professional Works Towards Adobe Certification

Michael Brooks is a Technical Editor working for the Department of the Navy enrolled in the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) Web Specialist program at New Horizons Learning Group (NHLG) – Burbank campus. As a working professional has already completed an MS in Leadership and Management and did not want to pursue another degree. He did, however, have education benefits from Veterans Affairs still available.

Having been a publishing editor for 13 years and using Adobe software for the majority of that time he said to himself, “why not get an Adobe certification for the software I have been using for years?” Despite his previous experience, an additional workload for any working professional is never easy. He states, “It does take a tremendous amount of my personal time and I do have a lengthy commute… about an hour and twenty minutes.” This is time he would otherwise be doing some of the many things he loves to do such as writing, hiking, and exploring movie and television filming locations.

His passion and career goal of achieving certifications in several desktop publishing programs and possibly becoming an instructor drives him to continue his education with NHLG. His favorite class in the program is Photoshop and learning layers management techniques.

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.

More than a Training Center

"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."

Network Engineer Obtains More Government Contracts

"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."

Project Manager in Mortgage Industry

"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."
