Betty took an assessment and was was enrolled at a program at Cal Poly Pomona to receive her CompTIA Security+ certification. The online course would give her an industry certification that, combined with her years of experience, would make Betty more marketable for employment.

Betty completed her online course in record time. She updated her resume and will be actively job searching and applying the certification she earned toward a new career and a better future.
