    I came back to school to get a viable skill that was marketable. I went into HVACR because there are so many employment aspects to it that the field of opportunities is wide-ranging.

    My experience with the program was excellent; when I went to the externship sites, I felt I was well prepared for activity in the dental setting. The instruction and classes were fine, I made some friends and I am proud of my achievement.

    Obtaining my degree from here actually did a lot for me because not only was it an educational facility it was like a counseling session, we learned a lot about maturing and growing up, living day to day life, understanding that every job won’t be easy, but you have to continue to do what you love to do and love doing.
