Before enrolling in ICDC College’s Homeland Security Associate Degree program, Haiden was working a dead-end job in a factory. He proclaims that having no real future, being unhappy, and not making any money led to frustration with his life’s direction. And then he saw a commercial on TV for ICDC College.
He checked out the Homeland Security Associate Degree program and realized that this would give him the necessary tools he’d need to make his dreams of working for the federal government a reality. He applied to ICDC College that day, and two days later was enrolled, but there was one obstacle: he was lacking a high school diploma.
His Student Services advisor immediately put him on the right track to achieve his high school diploma – one of the requirements to enter the associate degree program. Without having that requirement, Haiden said his life “would have been going nowhere, fast.”
“My ICDC College advisors were the most influential and helpful people I’ve ever dealt with in a school facility.”
His favorite classes were ones that had to do with technology and terrorism. After Haiden graduated, he applied for a position at an international security firm with over 100,000 employees. He accepted their offer and became a flex officer – a position reserved only for the most qualified individuals. These courses gave him the tools he needed to be able to design and implement security manuals and solutions for the firms’ clients. He also learned valuable skills on how to write reports and having a professional look for the interview.
