North Lake College Instructor - Irving, TX - April 2021
Many of the student in my classes were working professionals that wanted to become Cisco CCNA engineers. Classes and labs were always full. Many of the students would return to the campus to let me and other instructors know how they apricated the information that we shared with them. Because of their training they were able to get certified and obtain new job.
