Whether for yourself, or someone else you know, MNTC’s HIRE program is designed to increase the employment opportunities for people looking to improve the quality of their lives. The proof is in the comments provided by our clients:

I have had many chances to make something in my life count and never took on the battle of accomplishing it. By going to HIRE I have done that and much more. The support is always helpful! I am a GED graduate and a Moore Norman Graduate thanks to being a part of HIRE.

If you are having trouble trying to get in school and trying to find a good job, HIRE is the best place to be. The staff at HIRE really helps you get started on your way to a better career and a better life.

It’s a hand up - not a hand out. If you are serious about getting ahead they will help you by providing the tools you need to reach your goals.

This is the greatest opportunity I have ever had. To be able to go back to school, where I’ve learned I don’t have to give up on myself or my goals just because I lost track of my life. Now, I’m back on track, in school, actually going somewhere with my life, with a higher self-esteem, and loving life one day at a time! Thanks HIRE!

Gavin Abdinor, EMT Program

My experience at Moore Norman Tech was great. Right from the start, the staff were kind and accommodating. They helped me enroll in the EMT-Basic program just days before class started and select an affordable payment plan. The EMT-Basic course itself was awesome! Shawn Morton kept the class engaged and applied the subjects we studied to the real world, sharing his own experiences as a paramedic at the OKC Fire Department. Moore Norman Tech provides top of the line equipment for us to practice with, including a state of the art ambulance simulator! The course prepared me to complete all the necessary testing to become a registered EMT - I passed the NREMT on the first attempt. I am beyond thankful for everyone at Moore Norman Tech! - Gavin Abdinor

I love Moore Norman and everything they do! I’m a current CADD student (computer aided drafting and design) and I’ll be graduating in May. These two years have been the best and I’m always telling people to take advantage of Moore Norman. They have a program for everyone.

One aspect of our business is repair and service. Along with the training we received for our accounting system, we have also been pleased with the instruction received from the machine shop and the electronics/soldering classes. MNTC is a tremendous resource.

Our company obtained its ISO certification in June of 2015. We appreciate the effort and assistance that MNTC gave us. The guidance provided to ASC, Inc. made our registration audit a much easier exercise, and hopefully prepared us for being successful in achieving ISO in the future.

Gabe Savely

Our MNTC training was not a static course that other learning centers might offer, but was set up to be specific to our needs. The courses were engaging and really set a positive mindset for the over 100 employees who attended. MNTC provided opportunities for Basic, Intermediate and Advanced technical training, and we took the opportunity to leverage all three levels. The first call we make for employee training is to MNTC.

I recently attended Connect Now at Moore Norman Technology Center. I was able to bring my son to this event. It was an amazing opportunity for him to learn about options available to him for the future. It was headed up by Barbara Rice, Disabilities Coordinator. Kudos to her and all the vendors for providing this awesome event to the community.
