          Why Students Pick CIAT

          “When I was searching for a school it was important to be able to have flexible in-class time. CIAT is one of the few places that allows for this without being restricted to online courses. I used my GI Bill to earn many certifications as part of CIAT’s Associate Degree program at no cost to me and CIAT included all the books and exam fees. As an added benefit CIAT would have paid for a second exam free as well if I needed it. Fortunately, due to their excellent instruction, I passed all my exams on the first attempt. The school focuses on learning the concepts and gets hands-on with both hardware and software labs and simulations. I am gainfully employed in the DoD sector and highly recommend CIAT!”
