Review for Center for Employment Training - CET, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am an instructor at the Center for Employment Training and a graduate of the school as well. I was given two choices of schools to attend by the Workforce Investment Act; one was a community college, with the other being CET. Being new to the area and in the middle the adoption of a newborn girl, I needed flexibility and a central location. I toured the college and was met with the same hum drum attitude of staff and instructors. When I toured CET, I was overwhelmed by not just the positive attitude of the staff, but the overall vibe from the school, to include the students. The staff had all of the answers to my questions, their interest in me and my success is what helped me decide to attend the school.

As a student, I never felt out of place and assistance was close by at all times. I was recognized for my maturity and given responsibilities as a student, which empowered me to do even better.

As an instructor, I settled into the position with ease. As a former member of the military , it was second nature to gather the men of women from all walks of life, help find a common bond, and to foster a team environment where learning a new trade was number one, and help those around you at the same time.

The type of individuals I've instructed run the gamut, from farmworkers to former professionals, former gang members and parolees, to young adults learning a new trade.

All of this is possible due to not just myself, but my fellow staff and administration. The positive, can-do attitude, and keeping the mission of CET in mind is what is helping shape these people's lives.

The Center for Employment Training is an integral part in liberating workers out of the fields, keeping parolees out of prison and on a positive path, and getting the new millenials off the couch and into a well paying, secure trade of their choice.

I am not exaggerating when I say that I love CET for what it is, what it does, and what it stands for.
