Veteran Success Story: Shane Berry

Shane Berry is a member of the Michigan Army National Guard 25Q and a recent student with New Horizons. Shane had a passion for technology before joining the military and that passion continued while he served, working as a Communications MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) in the Army. New Horizons was recommended by another soldier in Shane’s unit. Shane soon reached out to investigate his options.

“I was completely blown-away by what followed. New Horizons put together a comprehensive package that addressed all the marketable IT certifications I would need to land my first job, as well as practice exams, and test vouchers.”

Shane set an immediate goal to transition from a career in sales in the private sector to a career in IT.
