My experience at New Horizon was awesome! The staff was and will always be part of my life. The training was made for people who want to learn at their own pace, which was perfect for me. The scheduling was always fitting my ever changing work schedule. They also helped me look and apply for jobs with resume writing tips. I have a paid internship I’m attending because of New Horizons Computer Learning Center. Thank you all so much.

Carolyn W.

Where do I start? I can honestly say going to New Horizons was one of the BEST decisions I have ever made. I was never one that was good or confident with computers. This lack/fear of computers always held me back at jobs. New Horizons changed all that! No matter what degree of computers skills you have or don’t have New Horizons can help you.

This program will help students at any level. The program is designed where you watch tutorials and learn and then you get to practice them yourself. Then you read about what you just learned. The combination makes for greater understanding all in one package. Not only are all the instructors so knowledgeable……they are so patient no matter what level of computers you are at. You will learn so much here whether you are a beginner or advanced in computers.

I just started a new job upon graduating a week ago. (Yes…….believe it or not…… ALL  thanks to New Horizons guidance/leads with job search!!)

Its only been a week at my new job but I feel so much more confident with anything given to me on the computer there. Now I have the computer knowledge and my “fear of computers” is gone thanks to them.

New Horizons Computer school is AWESOME. They are all so positive and you can feel that everyone is there to “SEE YOU SUCCEED” Thank you NEW HORIZONS for all you have done for me and for all your patience and guidance. I will miss going into a positive environment everyday which I did at at your school.

I will truly miss you all!

I started my job today as a Network Administrator for Wilkes University and I would like to thank the team at New Horizons for giving me the training to make this happen. The CCNA ICND 1 & 2 training which I completed on May 15 was directly responsible for my return to the work force. I would specifically like to thank Jordan and Heather for the super effort that you both give to the training program. You both exude a tireless effort and professionalism that allows each student to gain the most that they can out of their respective training. I highly recommend the training at New Horizons Pittston PA, and thanks again.

Mark K.

I would suggest that anyone looking to truly further their computer knowledge in a professional and personable atmosphere strongly consider New Horizons Learning Centers. If you are thinking of extending your education of computers I suggest that you contact New Horizons Learning Centers for one of the best learning experiences of your life. Also, they have the best staff always willing to help and guide you personally in achieving your learning experience. New Horizons Learning Centers are a true plus to the world of computer education and the Bethlehem staff is a true plus to New Horizons Learning Centers.

When I registered as a student at New Horizons, my knowledge in computer technology was basic. They have personalized programs, where you can learn at you own speed. They also have different training methods. I learned so much at New Horizons, Bethlehem. Thanks to the school, I was able to get my certifications as a Computer Network Technician, this is so valued in the job market. Staff were always helpful and the professors very knowledgeable.

Before going to New Horizon’s I had no idea on how I would be able to approach an employer about my computer skills without having the backing. New Horizons taught me the necessary skills to have confidence while approaching that employer. With their learn at your own pace method, it gave me a chance to be one on one with the instructor so I could give the right amount of attention to learning. The skills that they teach you such as proper job search to resume writing, put me above some of the rest when it came time for me to start searching out an employer. New Horizons is the school for you if you are looking for your next career move.

Having recently graduated with a Diploma from the MIS Enterprise Network Administrator program I have to say I am glad I found New Horizons in Bethlehem to help me harness some skills and learn new ones. The staff is always eager to assist and answer any questions, and when the staff can respond with career experience, you know you are in the right place. It is a professional environment that promotes learning at ones own pace and resources are abundant. I was able to read, watch, then go on to actually complete the tasks assigned. I could not think of another learning experience where the floor was open to any questions related to the material or IT industry. Being able to work with real equipment and software allowed me to explore the many different features, services and options available. Where mistakes are allowed and encouraged to find a solution using experience and learned materials has made me a better and more confident employee. I would strongly recommend anyone who is already in or considering a career in IT give New Horizons a chance to expand your knowledge and accelerate your career.

When I was told I would be losing my job that I was working at for seven years I was devastated and thought, what am I going to do. I followed all of the guidelines and went to Careerlink as advised, I knew I wanted to take advantage of the available training assistance but wasn’t sure what I wanted to do or where I wanted to go. Careerlink held an Education Fair where several representatives from the different schools in the area came to help and provide information to unemployed workers like myself. This is where my journey begins with New Horizons. I was met by an outgoing representative from New Horizons Computer Learning Center by the name of Tim Borowski who was the only representative from any of the participating schools that went out of his way to provide me information and answered my questions. He explained the courses they had to offer and stated he would follow up with me after I had a few days to think it over.  After meeting with Tim and speaking on the phone with him several times I knew this was the school for me. Tim made the transition from unemployed and not knowing what to do, to getting me ready to start my new endeavor. 

I met with my student rep Sarah Haydt and my new instructor Ruth Harton and was on my way to completing the Healthcare Information program. Returning to the classroom as a grown adult would give anyone anxiety, but the instructor made learning fun, easy and very hands-on. Ruth was available anytime for questions and to ensure I would succeed. I obtained higher grades with this schooling then I did in my entire high school career.  Ten months later I have three certifications and knowledge that I can apply to my new career.
 
After completing my course, New Horizon’s help didn’t stop there, they provided weekly emails with job leads and feedback on interview questions and also suggestion on follow up thank you notes to potential employers. Thank you to all of the employees at New Horizons who helped me obtain my goals and start a new chapter in my life.

During my time at New horizons I had trained at the same time as some of the local businesses in the area- it was so nice to see that the companies I wanted to work for trust New Horizons for their training. Not only did the training at New Horizons provide me with hands on skills needed to qualify for the job, but they also helped me prepare for the interview! The resume workshops, mock interview and the Job Placement Assistance Program allowed me to build the confidence and skills I needed to out shine other applications and the certifications I earned gave me the edge- I got the job I wanted!! Thank you New Horizons.

I think the training at New Horizons is thorough. The IT Systems Admin course that I took was very helpful leading to my job as a Customer Support Service Analyst. The coursework has given me a better understanding of what one might need to know in the field.

I am so grateful that I found New Horizons! I first learned of New Horizons at a job fair in the fall of 2012. I was immediately interested and made an appointment to meet with them at their Allentown, PA location. I could instantly tell that they were passionate people and truly cared about their students. Right away I felt welcomed and they got to know me, my situation, my learning style, and my interests. This helped me choose the program that best suited my career goals and aspirations. I decided to pursue the Systems Administration path, and I must say that I enjoyed it. The staff was always friendly and they would go out of their way to ensure I had everything I needed. I was always able to ask questions (and I had a lot of them); they were never unapproachable or made me feel uncomfortable – I knew I could ask anything that came to mind. I was also able to get hands-on training through the use of hardware, virtual machines, and even a rack-mount server they had set up. The training I received at New Horizons was invaluable – in less than 9 months I completed my CompTIA A+ and CompTIA Network+ certifications, and I’m on my way to attaining several more. The best part, however, is that New Horizons gave me the knowledge and confidence to go out and hit the job market for the first time in over 2 years. I’m happy to say that I’ve landed my first job in the IT industry – I couldn’t have done it without them!

The best part of training at New Horizons Learning Center personally would be, how well the material in each class is broken down and made very understandable to everyone individually. Job placement is very beneficial students are offered different workshops to enhance skills. My personal favorite was the resume workshop. Which focused on helping each individual personally on further developing their resume with there previous and new skills. Both Instructor Frank and Advisor Sarah were of big help with creating a cover letter and improving my resume. The staff at New Horizons is incredible! You can easily interact with instructors in regards to any questions that may arise during lecture or with classwork. The staff is amiable and very open to helping all in need.

I was looking for a simple solution to help me progress towards a career in IT. I don’t care much for the typical classroom and learning about an assortment of other things that have nothing to do with my field of interest. So when I received a call from new horizon I was happy to hear that there was a program that was aligned with what I had been looking for. The best part of my experience was the knowledge I gained from the instructor Mark. He enhanced the process by finding simple ways to explain the sometimes complicated world of computers and networking. Over all the school was a great experience for me and I got to learn more about something I have always had an interest in.

Richard G.

New Horizons provided me with the foundation and confidence to make a career change after leaving a job of 21 years. The courses are focused on teaching the essential information needed to obtain industry certifications, and the instructors are very approachable with any questions you may have, be it about the subject of your training or any other part of the IT career process. Having industry certifications and being able to say I’ve been trained by New Horizons was key to finding my first IT job–only halfway through my curriculum! I am beyond excited about the possibilities that are available in the IT field. and wish that I had made this choice much sooner!

RoseMarie

Your program has been awesome. I really want to thank you for your excellent service to my customer, as well as to me by sending regular updates on her program. It was a great business exchange and I hope we cross paths again in the future on other customers!

Robin G.

I was very impressed by the depth of knowledge shown by the instructors. We would do these “break outs” where the instructors would bring their expertise to the experience. If anything there could have been more of those which greatly increased my level of understanding. Also the accessibility of the instructors was much appreciated. They were always available to offer insight and answers to questions that the book did not offer. In all had a very pleasant experience here at New Horizon and I am looking forward to geeting my certifications and a career in IT.

New Horizons mentored learning approach to learning is a step in the right direction. I did the traditional college and found out that after taking pages of lecture notes I still missed key points. Well not with New Horizons mentored learning. I could replay lectures to make sure I got the key points I needed. If I still wasn’t sure there is an instructor there to go over what I didn’t understand. People have asked me if I had to do it all over again would I choose New Horizons? Well my answer will always be YES!

Training at New Horizons Computer Learning Center had to have been the best educational program I’ve ever attended. Do to the fact that an instructor is always present, class and group discussions, and hands on training that gives you a better understanding to your knowledge. It is amazing, the things you learn and also surprising when you realize how quick you’ve learn them. One of the most comforting things about New Horizons is the hospitality and warm welcoming feeling that puts a smile on your face. The staff is beyond tremendous. Well organized and keeps you up to date with your studies. Let’s not forget about job placement, New Horizons help people by guiding them in the right path. It provides classes to help build and write a professional resume, talks about professional appearances and proper attire to interviews, to even setting up interviews that can be a perfect job placement and a future for you. New Horizons helps you grow and helps you get to the next step in life. I put my time and dedication to this program. Accomplishing everything I had to and staying focused with my curriculum allowed me to be the professional man I am today. This has been a great opportunity for me providing me with extraordinaire computer skills. It is affordable and fast. What universities will teach in two years, I guarantee you’ll learn in one. Thank you New Horizons Computer Learning Center.

Flexible to accommodate each individual’s needs and schedules. An opportunity to make friends and have fun. Building confidence and skills to give you the edge you need in a very competitive world. Thank you New Horizons!

Its hard to pick just one thing that I like best about the program, but if I had to only pick one, it would be that you don’t have to fight for attention from your instructor. The curriculum is very well-organized and the instructors are always available to answer questions and guide you if and when you need them.

I attend New Horizons in Bethlehem, and am currently enrolled in the Medical program. I wouldn’t be at New Horizons if Tim Borski hadn’t made that phone call to me. I’m truly grateful to him. He was extremely informative about the how program worked. I’m going through a divorce right now, so getting approved to attend New Horizons was a true gift. Everyone from Jesse, Tim, Sarah, and Mark in Mentored Learning have been an exceptional asset to your facility. It is a joy to walk in that building and know that there are a great bunch of people that work there. This is my future, and I’m going to excel in this program. Please take the time to let Tim B. how much I appreciate that phone call. I’ve told him several times, but I would like him to know that he is greatly appreciated by me.
