After graduating from the Lexington Campus in 2008, David Boulden was working as a medical assistant at a pain treatment center when the practice’s systems administrator discovered how adept he was with computer technology. He began calling on David to assist him with the website and with technical issues that would arise. “It got to where they’d just call me off the nursing staff and I would go fix their computer,” David recalled.
Today, David has returned to American National University to enhance his IT skills as he works toward a degree in information systems engineering (ISE). While in school, he is working for Worldwide Tech Services/F2 Onsite as a field service technician where he repairs his clients’ computers, servers, and printers at their home or business.
David said he strongly recommends the ISE program at American National University. “The course material is catered toward the certifications,” he explained, adding that certifications are highly sought after by employers. David received his CompTIA A+ certification as part of the ISE program at National and he has gone on to receive over 30 additional certifications through his employer, including certifications as a Sony Certified Repair Technician and as a Dell Certified Systems Expert.
David also runs his own business, building and administering websites. He currently serves as web master for Galaxy Bowling in Richmond Kentucky.
He may someday combine his education in the fields of healthcare and IT. “It’s given me the tools that I need to get out of the trenches,” he said of his career training at American National University.
