"This program has helped me to strengthen and gain new skills in the field–I liked that I was always learning new things in this program. Everyone I have met at WITC has been so nice, understanding, caring, knowledgeable and easy to work with. I also liked the flexibility the program had to offer with how I wanted to complete classes: in-person, online or a combination.”


–Rachel, Medical Administrative Professional graduate


"The impact that the Leadership Development program has had on my personal and professional life has been profound. Not only did it pave the way for obtaining a bachelor’s degree, it opened doors for me that may have never been opened otherwise. After being hired by my current employer, I was promoted to manager within one year and senior manager just a year later. I’ve often said I would never be where I am today had it not been for WITC.”
