"I could not have done a full-time course being on parental leave and I had this plan of doing a course which would propel me towards my goals of obtaining a steady, secure and decent job with a municipal government. The course that Humber offered fit well with my schedule and I finished it on time."
"The knowledge and professional information that I gained during my studies at Humber, especially under the fine guidance of experienced teachers such as Steven Kinsella, prepared me to secure a job with the Town of Oakville. I joined the Town of Oakville as a Parking Enforcement Officer shortly after leaving Humber College. I worked for five years in the Parking department before moving to Town Hall as the Lottery Licensing Officer and By-Law Enforcement Officer. I am currently doing both jobs."
"It has been nine years since I left Humber College, but I can surely say it was the very first stepping stone for me to get where I am today and I am still on the move to achieve more." Raj Vemulapalli – Municipal Bylaw Certificate
