Sustainable Architecture Instructor Recognized for Excellence

Mar 3, 2023 2:36:37 PM

Herzing College started offering a Sustainable Architecture training program several years ago. This program offers an alternative to people who want to participate in eco-friendly building design, but don't want to invest years in university to become a licensed architect.

Our program trains students in the principles of sustainable architecture and the software and technical skills required to draft architectural designs.

Moncef Noual has been teaching the program since 2017—and was recently recognized as Herzing College Montreal’s instructor of the year! The honour reflects the fact that he really gets to know his students during their tenure with Herzing and goes out of his way to make sure they have the best possible experience from beginning to end.

We chatted with Moncef recently to learn more about his career journey and the sustainable architecture field in general. Here are the highlights of that conversation.

Herzing Partners With Bell to Train New Technicians

Feb 9, 2023 8:52:28 AM

Bell Technical Solutions (BTS) had a problem: they had far more work than their current staff could handle. But it was tough to find technicians with the right skills to fill open roles.

To address that shortage, they turned to Herzing College.

The result was a customized network cabling program that prepares individuals for employment as field service technicians with BTS. The training takes just six weeks, and BTS even provides tuition subsidies. Trainees who successfully complete the program get hired.

Computer Networking Jobs in 2023

Jan 4, 2023 2:34:00 PM

Just what is computer networking? It’s the practice of connecting devices to share information. And it’s one of the hottest fields around.

Companies have long relied on computer networking experts to design, build, secure, maintain, and support the digital information systems that link employees and customers. But with the enormous shift to remote work during the pandemic, the demand for networking professionals really took off.

As companies implemented work-from-home policies or a hybrid office structure, employees who were once connected to in-office setups had to learn remote practices. That often involved using new sharing software, connecting to a company-wide VPN, or other tactics. As a result, the need for those experienced in computer networking has grown dramatically.

As in any field, computer networking jobs have various levels. To succeed and move up, you need to demonstrate good problem-solving, communication, prioritizing, and teamwork skills. You also need to keep up with rapidly changing technology.

So where could you start out as a total beginner, and what opportunities are there to advance your career?

Keep reading to explore seven different computer networking jobs, from entry-level roles to the most senior positions.

So how do you get started? In this post, we explain how to become a 3D animator, what career paths are available in the field, and what steps can best set you up for success.
