Techie What?

May 11, 2010

So Herzing has been offering what we are calling the “Tech Academy” for the last six months or so.  I have to admit that I haven’t paid much attention to what it really was or what it really entailed, but my inquisitive side kicked in today and I thought I’d find out.  Well it is definitely techie stuff; and good stuff at that!  The cool thing is that you can earn a diploma in just a handful of months and get out into the workforce.

Here are the three paths down techie land I discovered 🙂
