Further Your Career Today!
Fortis gave me back what I love to do, patient care. They gave me the skills that I needed so that I could use them every day.
I decided to come here to Fortis because I spoke with a couple of other schools and I actually liked the curriculum and the way Fortis was set up. When I was going to school I was working second shift so I was able to go to school in the morning full-time and it worked out fine.
I learned more here than just technical training. I got some life skills. They helped me write resumes and just showed me how to also just run a business so they teach the fundamentals with that as well.
This was my time to shine and I had to take everything I could from this experience. Every question I asked, and there were a lot, was answered fully. With that extended support I was able to start not only my new career as a Certified Massage Therapist but my new business.
