"Before I even graduated from OTC's Automotive Technology Program, I had passed two ASE certification exams and been accepted at the Marine Mechanics Institute in Orlando.

Human Resources Assistant at Baptist Village
2001 graduate of Business Office Technology

"One of my favorite things about my training was that it was never boring. I was very attracted to the technology of the computers. The work ethics that we practiced in the classroom, like attendance and punctuality, were very valuable to me when I took the job at Baptist Village immediately after my graduation."

Jason Strickland  

Jason Strickland
2003 graduate of Computer Information Systems
Employer: ATC Technical Services Supervisor
Alma Telephone Company (ATC/AccessATC)

"I manage the technical support operation for Alma Telephone Company (ATC/AccessATC). In addition to that, I have been working on my Bachelor of Information Technology from American Intercontinental University on line. I have such good memories of my classes at OTC. I especially appreciated Carol Shugart. She managed to teach and still have fun; she was a knowledgeable friend as well as an instructor. Over half of the coursework for the IT degree consisted of programming concepts, sql database administration, and visual basic/object oriented programming; I do not think I could have done it without the foundation I received at OTC.."
