Testimonials from Students, Employer Clients and ABLE Staff

Testimonials

Operation Able has been a true partner and resource for KNF&T. The work they do with their students to prepare them to re-enter the workforce, and to network for them is truly a necessity. KNF&T in particular has been the beneficiary of many smart, dedicated and professional employees, and we are thrilled to hear that Operation Able has been able to continue this work through the current health crisis. - Beth Cabrera, Senior Managing Director, KNF&T Staffing Resources.

Operation ABLE’s greatest strength is its steadfast commitment to those who are seeking training and employment through any economic environment. By placing the job seeker first and foremost, Operation ABLE is, and will always be, a resource to those individuals in need of a career assistance as a purpose for its existence as an organization. Operation ABLE is built to help those in challenging circumstances, and takes those challenges as part of its own mission. - Chad Cotter, Director, Talent Acquisition, Boston Medical Center

Without the help of the Operation ABLE’s Medical Office Training program, I’m convinced my job prospects would be dim. Participating in the program has helped me regain my confidence, and makes me feel that I want to set out and try again to be employed. - Irene G. Student, Graduate of ABLE's Medical Office Training Program.

The staff at Boston Asian YES just completed the Microsoft Word, Levels 1,2 & 3 training and it was awesome!  Our brains are exhausted, but so much more brilliant thanks to Paul Piket. He is amazing. We cannot thank him enough. - Boston Asian: Youth Essential Service, UpSkill Employer Training.

Teaching remotely is a new experience for me. As part of yesterday’s class. I had a PowerPoint presentation about HIPAAA, an important subject in a Medical Office Training class. I had recently learned from one of my colleagues that PowerPoint has a Present Online feature (sometimes called Broadcasting). I set it up in PowerPoint – and emailed the link to all of my students. By clicking on the link, they were able to open a web browser and see the presentation. By telephone conferencing I was able to narrate the lesson as I ran the PowerPoint, just as if I were in the classroom. The lecture went well, and feedback was very positive! - Paul Piket, Operation ABLE Program Instructor, Boston, MA

I cannot say enough about the staff and programs at Operation ABLE. I was in a very dark place, but the help and support I received brought me back into the light. - Darneese Carnes, Duck Boat Driver at Boston Duck Tours

I learned the basics and got over my fears of the computer here. The staff here care about their students. - Charles K., Skills2Work Program Graduate

The entire Operation ABLE staff has been working tirelessly since we announced our office closure on March 16th. Our program Instructors have been communicating regularly with their students, both to share plans for continuing with classroom training as well as assist with any constraints. The Program Instructors have also worked closely with our IT and Marketing teams through the last two weekends, researching and evaluating several different remote conferencing platforms. - Mark Gyurina, Chief Program Officer, Operation ABLE, Boston, MA

ABLE graduates are well prepared and motivated. I find that ABLE grads are proud of what they have learned and eager to put their training to work, and open to learning more. - Steven Taranto, Director of Human Resources, Mass General Hospital

Operation ABLE has been a great company to train our employees. Their trainers are experts and have great warmth - receiving high praise from our employees. - Lisa M. Lurie, HR Manager, Berkshire Manufactured Products, Inc., Newburyport MA
