Urban Ed Inc has been a great experience for me. This non-profit organization has given me great job training hands on experience and the tools needed to pass the A+ certification test and many other information technology test in order to start a career in the IT field. This 10 week program trains individuals the in's and out's of working in many different areas of the IT filled. Overall this is a well rounded program that I would recommend to anybody that wants training in Microsoft office, word, excel, power point, IT technician, and many other area of computer technology.

Urabn Ed basically saved me from making one of the biggest mistakes of my life. I was in alot of trouble in 2004 and if it wasn't for Urban Ed accepting me into their program I have no clue what would have happened but I doubt if would have been positive. I started attending class and within a year I was Microsoft Office certified and working as a Administrative Assistant. That wasn't the end of my road with Urban Ed, enjoying my environment and new career path I continued to excel and became an IT Instructor. I've seen kids, friends, adults and even family come to Urban Eds prpogram and all you hear from participants is good things, how they love the program, how there gonna tell their friends about it and I agree with them all. Urban Ed is one of the best programs a disadvantaged person could come across. I simply looked at it as my way up without all the money and hassle and that's exactly where i've been on my way to since!
