“The savvy professional I strived to become”
Navy Veteran Benny CastilloMichel, a graduate of NPower, considered his career options when he separated from the military. He had an interest in technology, having been in cryptology during his military service, but wasn’t sure where to start. He took a job as a barber and searched online for ways to acquire tech training when he came across a note about NPower. He applied and was accepted into NPower’s tech fundamentals program.
“The instructors were the most helpful during my time in the program,” CastilloMichel said. “The career development shaped me to become the savvy professional I strived to become.”
Shortly after finishing NPower’s free tech program, CastilloMichel landed a position in tech support at SpaceX.
Graduation Bio – I joined the U.S. Navy shortly after high school to pursue my career in cryptology to follow my family’s legacy in technology. Due to unfortunate circumstances, I had terminated my contract to leave the tech field in the military and pursue a career in the food industry. Through emails from the Veteran’s Association, I found NPower which I believed to be too good to be true. After being accepted and having the ability to earn certification, free of charge, I have nothing but great things to say about NPower. The instructors have been the most helpful throughout these months and the professional development team has shaped me develop my professional self. I have been blessed with this opportunity and highly recommend anyone interested in tech to take advantage of what NPower has to offer.
