Both my wife and I could not find stable employment so we went back to school. Now I am happy to be in a career that will help me get a more successful outcome than before.

I gained a lot at CET and by the time I graduated I was very proud of what I had accomplished. I overcame my fear of speaking to a large audience. This led me to start doing other things I didn’t know I could do, even if I was nervous.
I am now a Payroll Specialist. Here I am at my own desk, with a career! I know I can do anything as long as I don’t give up. You can do the same. CET is here to guide you to where you want to go in life.

I needed to provide for my 4 daughters. But I had dropped out of school at 15 when my mother passed away. I had no working experience and went to work in the fields. I found out about CET and came to ask for information. I decided to enroll in the Truck Driver program. Within a few days I started class and began my training. I passed my driving test and was hired. I am now working 70 hours a week.
I’m happy to have taken the training at CET and happy for the help I received while I was in school. I’m grateful for the teachers who had the patience to teach me what I needed to learn.
I came to the United States from Sierra Leone not too long ago. When I arrived, I didn’t know exactly what the future had in store for me. I wanted to make the best of this new life. So I enrolled in the Building Maintenance program at CET Alexandria, VA.
At first I wasn’t sure if this path was the right one for me. But I kept going and found my groove. After a lot of hard work and working closely with the Job Developer, I am now working as a Maintenance Technician for Equity Residential
I attended CET’s Building Maintenance Program in Alexandria, VA. Toward the end of my time at CET, a sudden upheaval with my housing situation forced me to commute from Philadelphia. (Yes, Philadelphia.) I attended school full time, went to work, drove to Philly, slept for 3 hours, drove back to Virginia, and started all over. But now I’m a full time Maintenance Technician and live where I work.
