“I completed the IT Support program at Delta College, then attended Central Michigan University where I completed my bachelor’s degree in Information Technology. I now work for Covenant HealthCare in Saginaw as a Systems Specialist. The IT Support program greatly prepared me for university level classes, as well as taught me the groundwork to my education that I still use on a daily basis. The curriculum is very accessible and the professors are impressive, to say the least. I highly recommend the program for any student seeking a career in the IT field.”
