Voices of PPCC
As a working adult in the midst of a career shift, I was nervous there would not be an educational program to fit my schedule. I was more than thrilled when I enrolled in PPCC's Computer Information Systems Programming Certificate, because it allowed me the flexibility of online or in-person classes. The professors were top notch and accessible, and the program didn't break the bank. I will be starting a new job in the IT field thanks to the education I received at PPCC.
