A Case Study of Our Proven Approach & Graduate Testimonials

Like countless other industries, the U.S. military had a problem. They had numerous defense contractors who were struggling to fill high paying jobs near one of the Army’s largest military bases. The problem was compounded since these were not simple staffing jobs but information technology positions requiring specific certifications and background checks for candidates to gain security clearances. The solution? Create a first of its kind, highly immersive class intensely rigorous in its selection process that teaches students and includes their certifications of choice:

  • Java, CompTIA A+
  • Comp TIA Security+
  • Oracle Java SE8 Certified Junior Associate (OJA)
  • Oracle Certified Associate (OCA)

And do all this in just 17 weeks. The challenge of building this new, customized course was daunting. So, the college administrators looked for a partner, hopefully, an entity that had prior experience building such a program.  nTier Training stepped in and did for this group exactly what we hope to do for you. The testimonials you read earlier on the page were not random or created by us, but by real students that have completed this process and found new careers in a field full of opportunity.

In addition to having the lowest teacher/student ratio in the industry, we employ proven educational techniques to ensure student accountability, such as having review times built in daily and student-led teach backs.

Required to show up ready to go, students in our boot camps learn the meaning of being prepared. Cognitive learning research has proven learning is maximized when students prepare, present, and practice. We use a simple app to randomly call on students to present throughout each day. Subjects can range from simple review topics to giving an overview of their full application.
