Student Testimonials

Alize Love-Miller

“I was looking into two year schools that had a good Cyber program and had a high graduation rate. One of my coworkers told me about PTCC, and I looked up what programs PTCC offered and decided to apply.  So far, I have loved being at PTCC. My professors are all extremely helpful and willing to give recommendations on study tools to use as well as what courses to take. They are always willing to explain things if I don’t understand something and are extremely understanding.”

Logan Schmidt

“PTCC prepared me for my career 100%. Prior to attending college, I couldn’t count how many times I’ve had to break out manuals or go to google to try and figure out issues with different machinery. I had access to and learned newer technology at the College, and I’ve been able to inform my supervisor on different ways to program or a simpler way to complete a task because of this.”

Bella Anderson

“I love Pine Technical and Community College because I don’t get lost in a crowd. The faculty always take the time to make sure you are doing well. I feel like they care about my learning and want to see their students succeed. As a Workforce Development Scholarship recipient, college is extremely affordable.” 

Randi Pederson

“The instructors at PTCC are incredibly supportive and do whatever they can to help each individual student. I have learned so much while in the program and I feel as though I was fully prepared for my future in the nursing field because of the education I have received. I went into the program unsure of how returning to school and heading into a new career would go, but I left with confidence in continuing my education, and entering the workforce.”

Stephanie Binner

“I landed on Cyber Security because of my interest in computers and technology. I enrolled at PTCC and Chris Morgan (Cyber Instructor) had an opportunity for an internship through Abbott. I applied, and within weeks of starting the program, I was working as a Product Analyst and have gained great real world experience and knowledge through the opportunity.

I’ve had great experiences with the classes and instruction through PTCC and would highly reccomend the program to others looking to break ground into the world of Cyber Security.”

Innocent Ongwae

“Everyone at PTCC is so friendly, the environment is quiet, multiracial, accommodative and conducive for all. Nursing school is tough, but so rewarding. On my first day at PTCC, the Vice President, Mike Colestock, made a comment that resonated with me, ‘if you have to crawl on that graduation stage, then do it.'”
