MEET THE FACULTY
Aaron A. Boisseau, A+, Network+, Security +
“Mr. B” (as he is very affectionately known to all of the students and faculty) has over 10 years of teaching experience with computer technology. He understands and has taught both the Macintosh and the Windows operating systems. He started with Remington College as a Computer Graphics Instructor, but because of his extensive background, he was asked to teach the first class for the Computer Information Systems, and Computer Networking Technology departments and he has been there ever since. He has also taught Security+ concepts for many military bases and also NORAD, Northrop and NASA.
In college he studied Oceanography, Marine Biology, and Psychology. He is a certified Master Hypnotist and Hypnotherapist and uses these skills to teach relaxation techniques to relieve stress and improve performance. He believes in positive motivation, building self-confidence, and strives to empower students through improving self-esteem. He authored a class on positive motivation to teach principals of success, enhance self-confidence, increase retention, and improve self-esteem.
Richard Horne, A+, Network+, Security+
Richard, formally a native of St. Petersburg in Florida, relocated to Richmond California in early 2010. He has been in the information technology (IT) industry for over ten years and has CompTIA’s A+, Network+, and Security+ certifications.
Richard has worked with Fortune 500 companies (Kaiser Permanent, Twitter, Levis Strauss, Google and UBER) and taught at a non-profit organization, based out of Oakland, where he helped dozens of students get CompTIA certified.
Richard is an avid sports fan who brings the same enthusiasm to his courses and students!
