STVT Testimonials

“This program is a 10-month program. We keep everybody on the same page. We don’t let anybody fall behind. There’s a lot of information being thrown your way, but like I said, we want everybody to be on the same page. We really stress safety, because electricity can do some harm. The torch as well, it burns at degrees I don’t even know, but it’ll burn through metal, so it’ll burn through your skin. Safety is very important for us, especially here in the lab.”

I was helped in so many ways. You know, I couldn’t be more grateful and blessed, you know, to have the staff here at STVT – the students that I was with and my instructors.  It couldn’t have been any better.
