Student Testimonials

Forbes Road CTC is an excellent place to lean practical skills while still in high school.  Through the Computer Networking and Security program, I was able to learn how to build and fix computers, how to design and implement networks, and how to secure the network from hackers.  It has also allowed me to earn numerous computer and network certifications.  Forbes faculty and staff are friendly and allow you to grow as an individual.  The Student Organizations allow for students to meet other people in the school, region, state, and nation.  Forbes is a great opportunity and everybody should take the opportunity to attend.

"While in Emergency Response Services, I have learned many skills involving emergency medical services, law enforcement, and firefighting.  I used my skills in the field as an emergency medical technician (EMT) to save the life of an elderly lady who had gone into cardiac arrest. I will continue to use the skills that I have learned in class to become a Pennsylvania State Trooper and will continue to work as an EMT and a firefighter in a volunteer capacity in order to serve my community.  The skills that I have learned in Emergency Response Services will continue to help me, my family, and many others."

"Attending Forbes CTC was the best academic choice I made in high school.  The Computer Networking and Security program not only taught me technical knowledge, but also the soft skills needed to start pursuing a career in IT field at a young age.  The class opened so many doors, and I have been working in IT nonstop since age fifteen. The foundation I received at Forbes helped me become the top of my class at the Pittsburgh Technical Institute.   I am now working full time as a Linux Engineer and Technical Project Lead, while attending Robert Morris University for Computer Information Systems.  I owe a lot of where I am today to Forbes and the Computer Networking and Security program."
