"I really want to thank Ms. Wanda and the SoCal Pre Apprenticeship program for giving me some direction and getting me started on the path to finding a career path. Taking those classes were vital in tuning my time management, communication skills and eventually starting a job that gave me foundational Electrician skills. Just being open to learning something new made me realize I could learn anything and start fresh which has led me into healthcare. Thank you all for what you do."

“Thank you for this program. I learned a lot. The professors explained the lectures very well and made sure we all understood. I have grown in presenting in front of others. I get nervous when I have to do a presentation, but this program has helped me relax and be confident.”

Keyla (Cohort 5)

This was my first adult environment experience and I’m glad to say I’ve enjoyed it. I feel like I’m able to communicate and socialize with other adults even though I am younger than them.

I would recommend this program to others because anybody can complete it and what you earn at the end is worth it. You feel a sense of community and a sense that everyone cares for one another. The professors were great, and everyone was friendly and helpful when help was needed. It’s been a great experience.”

Joseph (Cohort 5)

“I enjoyed the program and would recommend it to others. It is a good investment in oneself. The work and commitment we had to put in prepares us for future commitments. Thank you for having me and giving me this opportunity.”

Matthew (Cohort 5)

“I would definitely recommend this course to others because I really liked the way the instructors took their time to explain the subjects in detail, especially in business math and communications math. I really enjoyed this time with all my classmates.

It was a good refresher for me after being out of school for a long time. This was my first time taking a hybrid-online class and I’ve learned many new things. I’m going to be honest, I was scared at first, but now I know how it works and I’m ready to continue with my Medical Billing course.

Thank you, Savanna, for all your support. Ms. Wanda, this is a great program. Thank you for giving us a second chance to make things better.”
