Student Testimonial

"The involvement of VICA Members and meeting them added so much value to the program. The certifications by themselves are great, but it's really a testimony to VICA as an organization that these companies are willing to come meet with us, and spend their time to share their experiences." - Woody Morrison, January 2017 Program Graduate
