“It’s OK to be a beginner at something, because you can continue to learn and develop.”
.…on the training she received from NPower Texas’ free Tech Fundamentals program.
A recent graduate of the NPower Texas’ Tech Fundamentals program, Walker is a testament to what the nonprofit’s free 16-week training course can offer.
Before joining the program, Walker was facing the most difficult period of her life. When she saw the organization at a veteran’s job fair, she grabbed the opportunity for its free training and the opportunities it could provide. She ended up getting not only tech instruction, but much-needed social support as well.
In a little over five months, she learned new technical and life skills, earned multiple certifications, and has since begun an apprenticeship with CITI.
“I could not have imagined these accomplishments a short while ago,” Walker said. “With my new skills, I plan to work hard as an apprentice with the goal to obtain a full-time career in a specialized field, then move on to advanced training.”
