As our elderly population continues to grow, there will be an increased need for trained medical assistants. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), job opportunities for medical assistants will grow much faster than the average for all occupations nationally over the next decade.
Keeping the environment safe and comfortable is only one aspect of work for the HVAC technician. As environmental systems have become more complex, there is an increased need for trained technicians who can install, maintain and repair heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration systems. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, due to the increasing complexity of these systems, employers are increasingly seeking technicians who have graduated from formal training programs.

FORTIS College was a life changing experience for me. I never thought I would graduate from college. I love the staff at FORTIS College and I made a lot of life-long friends during my time here.
The school helped me learn many of the skills. I learned many skills that helped with my externship. I can use my skills more in the medical field. The teachers helped a lot and when I had questions, they were always there. The school is great and I would have anyone go. Best experience of my life.
As far as changing my personal life, I finally got a certificate, completion of something. I’ve got probably over 200 hours of college. I’m master of a lot and graduated from none. But I actually finished the program, got to walk the stage and got a certificate. So it’s actually something that I actually completed.
The degree I received at Fortis College definitely made a difference in my personal life. It allowed me to find a better job…not only a job, a career that I love.
