“After three months on the job my boss told me I was the best investment they’ve made in the U.S.,” says Jonathan Wilder, a graduate of Western Technical College’s Electronics Engineering Technology program. “I told him he could thank Western Tech for that.”
After completing the program, Jonathan was hired by On Site Safety, Inc., where he started as repairing, maintaining, and diagnosing all the electronic equipment for the organization.
“Western Technical College provided me with the resources and Real World training to work in the electronics field. The hands-on approach at Western Tech is awesome; they actually show you how to apply the information learned in the classroom.”
After time, Jonathan started recruiting and training new employees for On Site Safety, Inc. “I’ve been to other universities, and they don’t have the same hands-on training,” he says. As a note to all current and future students, he offered this advice: “Get your certifications; I was lucky because Western Tech provided me with opportunity and the knowledge to earn mine, they are necessary, and employers look for them when they are looking to hire.”
