Graduating- Students Advancement Ceremony

We had an amazing certificate and advancement ceremony for five graduating students.

Amber, Dylan, Dallin, Eric and Lee all have moved on to great things!

We are so proud of their progress, work and successes.

Each have created a successful path forward and are rocking it!

We will miss them and hope they will come back to visit often.

We never know when a student starts where they will land; finding themselves and working through roadblocks leads often to new paths and possibilities.

We have tried to ensure that each student finds their landing place as a destination school more than a transition school.

Congrats to our students and supporters who have all worked so hard!

TFL Students Tour Local Tech Companies

 

We toured two local companies; InfoWest and MetaShield.

InfoWest is a pretty sweet company, the atmosphere there was friendly and relaxed.

We got to see their help desk room as well as their server room.

Anyone with a background in Information Technology would agree that they feel at home when entering their help desk room.

MetaShield is a company that creates advanced coatings for materials like glass.

We got to see their chemistry room where “all the magic happens.”

We also got to see their highly advanced, scientific, machinery that’s used to measure various different properties of whatever coating they’re testing.

Welcome To Reid Our New Student From Texas Looking To Gain Tech Certifications

Reid comes to us from Texas.

He also enjoys playing video games and working out in his spare time.

All of us here at TFL can tell a difference already in his body physique, he is taking it quite seriously.

Reid’s favorite food is Thai and if he had a super power, he would want to be able to fly.

Reid’s goals while at TFL is to gain all the certifications he can earn and to find a job to help support his lifestyle.

We have already taken note of how serious Reid is taking his coding classes and we look forward to see what he is capable of doing this summer in the intensive coding classes.

"Wild Bunch" escapes...

“The Wild Bunch” Escapes…

We were named the, “The Wild Bunch” when we entered the escape room!

We had one hour to find Butch Cassidy’s gun

and we worked hard as a team solving puzzles,

using our nose to smell things and identify different scents,

we struggled with trying to figuring out anagrams

and unfortunately those anagrams held us back from finding Butch Cassidy’s gun

but we had a lot of fun working together.

It was fun to see how everyone’s brains worked so differently in the way they looked at the puzzles

but how each one contributed in helping us move closer and and closer to finding the gun.

Phase two advancements ceremony

TechieForLife Student Advancements- Congratulations!

Congratulations Amber and Joseph!!

Both of these students have advanced from phase one to phase two.

Amber was able to advance right before our winter break and Joseph advanced a few weeks after.

Each student was excited to receive the coveted “keys” to the Nest. 

In order to advance from one phase to another,

students need to complete the current phase,

meet with the program director,

keep weekly SMART goals,

and go before the students for a vote.

We can’t wait to see what each of them can do with phase two.

–Kristin, TFL Program Director

They’re excited to attend the NATSAP Conference and help with the launch of the new app they built.

Amber does amazing work!

“Amber takes my ideas and brings them to life, only better!” said Debbie, TFL Marketing and Admissions Director.

This has been quite the project for our students.

Now they get to be a part of the launch…
