I was looking for something more steady and stable, something that I could look forward to for the years to come and not just go job to job. The education here at Fortis prepared me just to get out there in the real world to see what it’s actually like.
My education here has made a big difference in my personal life and as well in my career. It has opened up many doors for me and it is doing a lot of great things for my family and myself.
Fortis College really wants their students to be successful. They really believe in their students. What I love about Fortis College is that the president and others are accessible to the students. They don't just sit behind the desk and hide. They even come and get to know the students. The staff and teachers will not let you give up.
The education here at Fortis has provided me with education beyond what I expected. In my personal life I am more knowledgeable with family members, with friends, in my job.
I decided upon Fortis College after I came across the Dental Assisting program. It was by far one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself, and I loved every minute.
