A business analyst who was not working actively in his field for over three years, Anthony was having trouble securing employment. He realized that many companies were requiring advanced certifications that he lacked.

Fortunately, Anthony was approved for vocational training from UC Irvine Extension, where he successfully completed the required coursework to attain the Business Analyst Certificate Program certification.

Today, Anthony has nearly doubled his income, earning $26 an hour, including benefits, working full-time for Second Image National in Ontario as a Business Systems Analyst. “I want to thank the WDB for believing in me and giving me this life-changing opportunity.”
