Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) — a leader in high-performance network security – is growing quickly, with an average growth rate of over 25%. To accommodate this explosive growth, we continue to expand our global presence, including our primary North America support center based in Ottawa. We have been particularly pleased with our innovative partnership with Willis College. Over the years we have worked with Willis College to leverage Fortinet’s technical expertise, unified threat management appliances, FortiGuard security services and technical curriculum to develop and expand Willis’ Technical Career program. In return, we have been fortunate enough to hire many of Willis College’s graduates. Willis College graduates join us with strong technical skills, professional communication skills and great attitudes. They have proven to be a great fit for our fast-paced, highly technical environment. Because of the excellent training these graduates receive at Willis, they’re immediately able to add real value to our organization. The fact that Willis graduates students throughout the year is particularly useful for us since our staffing needs are as dynamic as the business we support. We look forward to building on our strong relationship with Willis College, hiring many more graduates, to offer the local community opportunities for high quality technical training and great jobs in a fast-growing industry.

What Our Graduates Are Saying

My experiences at Willis College have been life-changing. In completing my program, I grew in many ways. My confidence increased and I was amazed at my own capabilities, which I didn’t recognize until coming to Willis. The atmosphere at Willis made me feel like I belonged to a large family; that we were all in it together to succeed. Hats off to the staff of Willis College because they work together as a team and everyone helps everyone. No one falls through the cracks. Thank you Willis College.
