    Truly Exceptional! I completed my Cyber Security Learning track with vigorous hands on training. The vast experience of knowledge from the instructors paved the way for me to successfully pass my industry certification exams. The training I received at Atius Technology Institute and the IT Academy has provided me the basic foundation in utilizing those experiences at my current job. I highly recommend Atius Technology Institute and the IT Academy for anyone who would like to acquire the skills that are highest in demand by the government and many DoD contract agencies. I have been gainfully employed since I completed my learning track at the Information Technology Academy.

  • Atius Technology Institute is a school that wants you to succeed, not only professionally but personally. I have gained the knowledge to pass 5 certifications.  With assistance from the school, I was able to land a job paying over $60,000 after my third class and 3 industry certification. The structure, organization, and lessons make this school a great environment to learn. The instructors are knowledgeable, informative, and there for you when you need them. The I.T industry is challenging, and I needed to be in a school with teachers that will go above and beyond for me because I go above and beyond to learn the information needed to be successful. Thank you Atius Technology Institute for helping me gain the knowledge to position myself in this industry so I can better provide for my family.

  • I was reffered to Atius Technology Institute's Information Technology Academy in the Spring of 2014 by my father who is director of University of Baltimore's "Forensic Science - High Technology Crime masters degree program". I took CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+ and Security+ at this great school.  The hands on training that I experience complimented my previous knowledge about computers. After completing these 3 classes I was able to get an interview and get a job working at Microsoft, 3 minutes from my house in northern Virginia. I will be back to the school to enhance my skills once I am aclamaited with my new job at Microsoft.

  • Employment before ITA: Verizon
  • Current Employment: Employed in I.T. ($140,000+) Uber


  • I am proud to say that I was one of the first graduates of Atius Technology Institute's Information Technology Academy. Before I attended the school I worked for Verizon.  I was introduced to the school by my father who was also a student at the time. After successful completion of A+, Network+, Security+ and CCNA with certifications earned in the first three, I was able to land my first IT job working for a government contractor at Fort Belvoir.  The HANDS-ON training I received in all of these classes was incredible. In a matter of a few months I had not only learned the skills to do the work, I had also developed my resume and technical vocabulary to the point a seasoned professional. The school, staff and instructors at this school work hard to make sure that 100% of their students succeed. With guidance and advice from the school, as well as hard work on my part, I was able to demand a salary of $150,000 working for a government contractor only 14 months after my graduation from the Information Technology Academy.  It is now three and a half years since my graduation and I am a now a seasoned Senior Network Engineer for Uber – Washington, DC. I am currently designing and building networks all over the world for Uber.  I love my job because of the salary I command, the time and flexibility I have for my family and I owe a very large part of that to the Information Technology Academy and its great instructors.

    The help and flexibility that the instructors give you, along with the support is priceless! Real world scenarios, combined with an intense classroom environment, makes you comfortable. They make the transfer of information easy by tailoring it to the individual style that fits your needs. After completion of A+, Network+ and Security+ I have been able to successfully interview and get a job with a government contractor.  I am still attending classes and have a few more classes to take complete my track. The school inspires you to want and to do more in order for you to get what you want, the best inspiration hower; comes from former students, who once sat where you currently sit and tell you their stories of hard work and great success. They are all humble and inspire us to work hard because success is only a few classes away.  I never could imagine making the kind of money I make just after completing 3 classes and industry certifications.  I want more so I will continue to attend until I complete my learning track.

    I took the A+ Certification class last year at Atius Technology Institute's Information Technology Academy. The school, staff, and instructors were great. The environment is very chill and everyone is willing to help if you should have a problem. The instructors and the classes helped me in my career a lot, the A+ Certification that I received help me get a pay raise and notification for the hard work that I do for my organization. What is special about the school is that you get hands on training and one-on-one time with the instructors. I would recommend this school because it’s cheaper than any other schools I looked into that provide the same type of hands on job readiness teaching style, the location is perfect, and the class hours are too. I will come back to this school for my other certification courses.
