    FORTIS-ERIE prepared me with the right classes and “hands on” training. This included opportunities to work in a clinic and gaining real world skills and experience.

    Deciding to attend FORTIS was a wonderful thing to do. I had been out of high school 16 years and working the same job for 10 years. I told myself it was time for a career change.

    The teachers at Fortis were great and helped me find an externship, which then became a full-time job for me. It feels great to have a new career path and I am excited for what the future will bring.

    One of the reasons I went back to school was so I could be a good positive role model for my son and show him that if I can do it and get good grades at my age then of course he can get good grades at his age.
