Success Stories

See what our graduates are saying about Fortis!


Dominique S.

I wanted to become a medical assistant because I wanted to do something in the medical field and becoming a medical assistant is going to be your foot in the door for different options. With me I was lucky enough and blessed enough to get hired on after my extern and the pay is great to me, I love it. It was well worth going to school the ten months I went to school. To me it was worth it.


Justin G.

Going to college it was a lot different than from what my friends did. But I made a lot of friends. I learned a lot from the instructors. I liked it a lot and I recommended my cousin, who was talking about going to college, and, you know, he started thinking about, you know, the field I was going into and I actually recommended him to check Fortis out so he actually goes to Fortis for HVAC now.


Christina R.

My grandmother is absolutely just ecstatic of my experience and how well I did in school, that I graduated and placed so quickly in a job. I talk to her every night still since I was 21, talk to her every night and I see her at least once a week. There is always a story and most of the time I haven’t heard it. She taught me to read, she taught me to articulate. I think from her I learned to enjoy people and that is why I think I have had the jobs that I have had, is the interaction with people.
