“Atlanta is a major tech hub,” said Rebecca Mattox, Cisco Certificate program manager. “Atlanta being a major tech hub. “There are plenty of opportunities in the field, but not enough qualified candidates. This program is designed to provide essential training to those seeking employment in the field.”

The five-month program is taught by Adenkunle Ayodele, an industry professional with more than 15 years of experience in managing complex technology projects. Ayodele holds more than 28 IT certifications including Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIEx2 – Routing and Switching, Service Provider), Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP), Program Management Professional (PgMP), and Project Management Professional (PMP).

Roger Hinton, program graduate, said the class was “a breath of fresh air.” The program was a welcomed challenge for the retired military veteran.  “I spent 20 years working on telecommunications gear,” Hinton said. “I was qualified to work on a lot of pieces of equipment; however, it was nothing new. When I got in this class I noticed technology had really taken off from what I had done in the past.”
