When i started the program it seemed difficult. As i progressed it became easier & easier. While i was in school i was offered a job with the help of the career services department. My Professors were very good at explaining the subjects & made it easier for us to understand.Thank you to the staff as well.
It was a very tough road, but with the help of the wonderful and thoughtful staff as well as the brilliant professors at PC AGE I was able to succeed. If you want to change your life for the better this is the place to come. It is a very challenging few months but if you always put your best foot forward anything is possible here.
Pc Age is a great school, the staff and the teachers are excellent and I have a delightful learning experience . I enjoyed every minute of it. Yes, i would definitely recommend this institution to anyone who wants to learn IT.
My Experience at PC Age Career Institute has changed my life for the better it was a great experience that i really enjoyed and can actually see my self pursuing a career in the future. It was just 9 months but i felt like a full 4 years of college experience.
During my time at PC Age, my instructor was pretty detailed with his points on what he taught me in class regarding objectives for computers, such as Cisco or Router Switching. While there were points in which the work took a lot of time, it still went out well for me in the end. It was definitely a step-up on my part.
PCAge was the missing piece of the puzzle that I needed in order to jumpstart my career. I had become disillusioned with my education and wondered whether I could bring myself to finish a degree, or even a vocational program. I researched various online universities, including Thomas Edison State University, as I felt this might make it easier to finish a degree. However, I did not enroll in any schools, and I kept working at various temp agencies and bouncing around from job to job for the next few years.I noticed billboards for PCAge while riding the bus and PATH trains around the city, and began to consider attending the school since it is close to where I live. I later found out that they offered transfer credits to Thomas Edison University, which is the school I had been considering in the first place.I finally enrolled in March of 2017, and I spent nearly all day, every day for the past few months immersed in the subject material. I absorbed the knowledge and applied it wherever I could, and I finally remembered what it was like to enjoy school and education.In late November, I had my first job interview through the program. I was interviewing to be the onsite IT support technician for a company in Midtown Manhattan, and I was hired the same day. My education at PCAge gave me the technical prowess and interviewing skills needed to get the job, and now I am working during the day and finishing my classes at night.It is a lot of hard work to get through this program, and it is even tougher now that I am working and finishing my classes, but luckily the school was able to accommodate for my schedule by moving me to night classes. I will complete the program soon, after which I will be transferring my credits to either Thomas Edison or Western Governors University so I can do my studies online and still work full time.
