thumbs up review

“Where do I begin? I met so many wonderful people and teachers here. I gained so much knowledge and refreshed my typing and computer skills here. I am proud to say that I walked out of here with the qualifications in getting a job and that I learned how to create a job resume at a young age. Thank you CET for the proper training I needed to succeed.”
