In Our Student's Own WordsWe asked students to reflect on their decision to attend the CTC and how it has made a difference in their lives.
"At first I was on the fence about CTC, but when I looked into it more and found out I could go out every day and do construction I was pretty much sold on the whole deal. Iíve always known I wanted to join the military, but for the longest time all I wanted to do was infantry, CTC and Carpentry have changed my mind and I decided to sign up for Combat engineer. CTC has made a huge difference in my life, some of the best teachers I have had in my entire life are at CTC, especially my Carpentry instructors. Mr. Howard and Mr. Schmid are outstanding instructors, I have learned so much from them and they are definitely the kind of people you look up to and idolize once you get to know them. Coming to CTC is, without a doubt, the best decision I have made, the programs are great, the staff is amazing and the students seem to be a lot better behaved and disciplined." - Current Carpentry Student

"CTC was the best step I took in my life. I am already employed and am ahead of most of my graduating class. I would recommend CTC to anyone. You meet new friends and the teaching staff is excellent!" - 2009 CTC Cosmetology Graduate
"Attending CTC (was SCJVS at the time) for Metal Fabrication Technology opened up a host of career choices for me. I relocated to Lima, Ohio to work at the world reknown Joint Systems Manufacturing Center and became a Department of Defense certified welder, proving that I can hold a welding standard that exceeds American Welding Society requirements. Most people go to work and sit in front of a computer screen or wait tables, I get to build and play with cutting edge military equipment. It's a dream come true!"
"I really enjoyed my education at CTC. I feel that my program of choice (Medical Assisting) fully prepared me for college and beyond. I have since gotten my STNA and am currently attending Hondros College School of Nursing in Fairborn, Ohio. My LPN program is set up very much like CTC, and I feel that I can truly succeed with the experiences I underwent during my 2 years at CTC."
"I have the goal of someday owning my own excavating company. CTC was one of the steps to achieving my goal and it prepared me well for my next step attending Hocking Tech for Heavy Equipment Management." - Kyle Taylor, 2012 CTC Auto Collision Graduate
