Path: Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Certification
As a result of the depressed economy, the housing market took a dive, and Mark’s employer, a home builder, announced layoffs – including his. When considering what to do next, he searched for a way to put his creative and artistic talents to use. His grandfather and uncle were draftsmen, and he thought that today’s version of that profession – computer-aided design – might be his ticket to an interesting new career. Over the next two years, Mark earned straight A’s as he completed his courses, and was also inducted into Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. Upon earning his certification, Mark was hired by an engineering firm, KCI Technologies, where he now serves as a designer.
