Per Scholas changed my life with their Codebridge Program, I was dumb enough to get a degree in Political Science in college but then enrolled into this program. One of the best kept secrets in New York and highly advise veterans to enroll in their programs. I still keep in touch with my class and have a good connection with the staff at Per Scholas.They have IT, QA, Cloud Development, a Cyber Security program with Barclays Oracle Training, and aforementioned Codebridge Program.
Per Scholas literally changed my life. Back in 2010, coming off a decent career as a NY Real Estate Agent-- I didn't know what my next move was going to be. Being introduced to the A+ Certification program was a total game-changer for me; I had often worked on computers as a hobby, but the intensive training, as well as the all-important life skills that were provided- positioned me to really consider making IT the career of my choosing. Now, in 2020, 10 years later-- I'm a Regional Tech Lead for an awesome startup, and I couldn't be happier with the direction my life has taken. All it takes is that first step- and I'm thankful that Per Scholas gave me the opportunity to start walking!
