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.”

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.”

Noelle Robertson

“I’ve learned a lot during my time studying Cyber Security at PTCC, but the most valuable learning experiences were probably participating in the Cyber Defense Team and taking first place at state and my internship with ECMECC last summer. Practical and real world experiences are important for applying skills learned in class and understanding how different threat landscapes can be for different industries.”
