An American success story in the making, Lawrence had spent nearly two decades in hotel security after immigrating to the U. S. from Nigeria. He was anxious for any kind of foot in the door to a better opportunity with room for growth.

Lawrence has already seen growth, passing his first two certifications and enjoying the corresponding pay raises, and he’s even working on projects outside his direct sphere, helping his company with implementation of ISO 9001. He’s taking advantage of every opportunity to learn, both within his apprenticeship program and on his own.

Lawrence is eager to continue stacking skills and certifications, and looks forward to moving on to the Network Engineer program as soon as he has the required two years of experience under his belt.
