“Before I came to school here I had a little experience working on computers and my resume kept getting passed around because I didn’t have any other qualifications. After passing my certifications I had two job interviews within two weeks. PTC has given me several opportunities and the job I have today with RamJack.”

"I first became interested in welding when our agricultural class offered it at the end of the year and I was the only girl who actually tried it out. I chose PTC because my older sister did and she had success finding a job."
