Forbes Road CTC

Overview

Starting in my sophomore year of high school (2010), I attended Forbes Road CTC for Computer Networking and Security (CNS). This program utilized the Cisco Networking Academy curriculum for IT Essentials and CCNA Discovery. After this training program, I was able to sit for and pass the CompTIA A+, Network+, IT For Sales, and the Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician (CCENT). I graduated in June of 2013 as the valedictorian of Forbes Road CTC. (Photo of me with Mr. Karnbauer, instructor of the CNS program).

While at Forbes, I had the privilege of being President of the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), and being a member of SkillsUSA. I competed at the Pennsylvania State level in both of these organizations placing in the top three of all of my main competitions and in the top ten of several secondary competitions.
