Students go on to Success Because of Programs at VTI

Monday, May 2, 2016

With Virginia Technical Institute's 95% placement rating in the job field, it is no wonder that students who attend our school see tangible results for their efforts and hard work. Our students come from all different backgrounds and paths of life, some are just starting in a career field and some are coming back to school to try their hands at something different, but, no matter where you are at in life, investing in yourself by getting an education with VTI lays the foundation for a successful future. Below are just a few stories of some of our students here at VTI:

Ryan, newly married and working at a local retail store, responded to a VTI television Ad and filled the last welding training position.  After one year at VTI he is starting a new career in welding at Banker Steel.

Jeremy, who after his first semester at VTI, was hired by his VTI HVAC instructor to work at Moore’s.  He continued to attend classes at VTI as part of the company’s "Continuing Education" program and after two years of training, is now a service technician.

Ryan, who found his two semesters of carpentry education very useful on the mission field in Guatemala, he is now forming concrete foundations for walls to protect the villagers from thieves.

Kelson, after working in manufacturing for a number of years, decided to specify in welding.  He applied for a more rewarding welding position with an architectural design and welding company near his home in New York.  The NCCER credentials he earned at VTI got him a quick interview and hire.

Cheyenne, a Liberty University student majoring in Mechanical Engineering, enrolled in a welding class at VTI. Because of her engineering background and welding skills, she already has an offer from Banker Steel as a designer after graduation.
