    I gave in my graduation speech that FEAR stands for face everything and rise and even at 30 and two kids and being out of school for almost ten years I was still able to go back and I didn’t feel that I had lost that much time, I was able to get back into the groove of it and if you put your mind to something you can achieve it no matter what obstacles stand in front of you.

    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.

    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.

    Karen C.

    I am proof that dreams do come true. I was working for minimum wage and no benefits before Fortis. Now, I am working full time with benefits and doing what I went to school for. Keep your head up and reach for the sky. Go Fortis.
