Georgian gave me the knowledge I needed to change my career. They showed me how to use the tools and how to read the information – things I do every single day in my job. What I liked most about studying at the Midland Campus was that it wasn’t too big. The teachers were always there and willing to help.—Theresa Marcotte, Panel Builder at Walker Panels and graduate of Georgian’s Electrical Techniques program
