I think it’s great that I can provide a different kind of lifestyle after some time. I find myself in a better position and my family finds themselves a little bit more at ease due to the fact I happen to do something else that can make a better living.
The HVAC field has changed my life tremendously. What I mean it was a life saver it was a life saver. I went from making minimum wage to making way over minimum wage times two.
I was looking for something more steady and stable, something that I could look forward to for the years to come and not just go job to job. The education here at Fortis prepared me just to get out there in the real world to see what it’s actually like.
I loved the program, it wasn’t easy of course but I enjoyed the demands that learning required, and acquiring all that new knowledge was stimulating and interesting.
My most rewarding experience at FORTIS was meeting so many new people and learning all of the interesting things about the dental field. During my externship I made such a lasting impression on my site, that when a position came available, they called me to work for them.
