He’s consistently on time and has been incredibly responsible in following his scheduled training hours, which are after school and on the weekends. When he has a project or other school-related commitment, he never fails to call his employer and let them know as soon as possible. Amado always puts his education first!
Amado’s aptitude for learning extends far beyond just the hard skills.

We are very proud of having him as our client, and his supportive parents are there every step of the way!
