My name is Petria Pierce and I entered C.E.T. On June 30th 2009 since I been in C.E.T. The staff has worked with me very closely to help me develope some skills, so i can remove myself out of poverty so that I can become a productive member of society again. When I arrived at C.E.T. I must admitt I did not think I would make it again in a classroom setting, The staff here at C.E.T. has gotten me through many hurdles besides my education. I am truly greateful having an oppurtunity to graduate from C.E.T. I would love to give praise to the Career Developement Department for showing me how to write a resume and how to answer question that employers may ask. I did not know half of the things that was taught to me. I want to take this oppurtunity to thank everyone who played apart in my life today and again thank you C.E.T. I am a winner.

I highly recommend the Center for Employment Training Program as I am a former student and now an employee. While training as an medical administrative assitant I learned medical termology, healthcare protocol and as well MS Word and Excell. The programs instructor was very engaging, professiona and knowledgeable. I am currently employed by So Others Might Eat as an Human Resource Assistant and the skills I received from C.E.T. have help me reach my goal of earning a decent salary and giving back to my community. I am grateful to the staff at Center for Employment Training for consistently going the extra mile for all who who strive for a more productive life. Sincerely, Michelle Boardley

I was fired from my job after 8 years of employment. I applied for assistance and was sent through the standard programs that DC offers for job training, my confidence was low and I felt that I needed more training. I was fearful of failing and being out of a job or being on welfare forever. I found the handout for CET through the ARCH Jobs (a job readiness program in the District). The process was easy to get in, I applied one week and started the following week. I was defeated and fearful in the beginning, I was able to open up about those concerns and work with them the entire time that I was enrolled. The staff was always open, always ready with a open mind and understanding heart. The closer it got to graduation I didn't want to leave. I didn't have to worry the staff was still there while I was in job search. They stayed on top of me and still after 3 years they still know me by name and I know that if I need anything that they are just a phone call away. I really thank them for helping me get my confidence back and being able to enter in my career.

The Great!

I was having a rough time and was introduce to the SOME program. After going to an appoitment and hearing all that SOME had to offer I was very impressed. I later enrolled in the SOME Center for Employment Training program. At CET I have learned so much. I have enhanced my Admin. Assistant skills in typing, Microsoft Office Suite, writing skills, public speaking, and so much more. I'm in the Business Customer Relations Associate course. I also have a wonderful instructor named, Mr. John Adams. He has taken the time to make sure that whatever a position is looking for that his students has that skill. I also took and passed my GED in Sept. 2008 with the encouragement for CET. I feel now that I have the confidence to go out into the work force and secure a career job. Let me not forget to mention the other programs that I have supported SOME in as well. They had a awesome program for addicts. I'm not a addict but some of my classmates are and I go to the events that SOME celebrates with them for their recovery. SOME is one of the BEST Nonprofit organizations I have been introduce to. And I know that their doors are open for the ones that need their services. SOME--keep up the AWESOME job you do!

My experience here at SOME/CET has been the very best decision I've made in my life. When I came here I didn't have any job skills at all. Now I am proficient in Microsoft Office Suite. My self esteem has risen beyond estimate. I feel extremely confident in talking with people and in front of groups of pleople due to our presentations that we do every week in the BCRA class. The whole program is AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
