"So. I absolutely enjoyed every minute of attending this school. You never know how you could accomplish something until you have the support you need from staff at your school. They give you so many opportunities, chances, & most of all recognition to make sure you get the help you need to make it."

"Fortis college was a great decision for me as far as continuing my education!! I chose HVAC as my career of study and I had a great learning experience..My instructors gave me the knowledge needed for me to excel in the real world. Hands on learning in the lab gave me real life experiences I would encounter in the real world. The staff here at Fortis college were very helpful with solving any problems I may have had, and with answering questions I may have had in a promptly matter. My Career service administrator help revise my resume and prepared me for future interviews with employers which is very beneficial to me. I really enjoyed my experience here and encourage others who are looking to forward their education to come to Fortis college"

"As I decided to return back to school full-time I saw there were many options as far as colleges. I had to make sure I was making the best choice for me. I had to know my needs and what it was going to take for me to complete what I started. So one day in July 2017, I picked up the phone and called to make an appointment. The appointment was made comfortable to my schedule and when I arrived it was stress free. My advisor gave me her complete attention and was very open and true to the answers. She didn't pressure me to enroll instead she let me think about it. We agreed to touch base in a day or two and when we did I be came a student! My advisor knew I was concerned about returning back to school but she was and still is here for me. As far as the instructors, I can say they care about you and making sure you know the material. They'll help you as much as they can. All you need to do is show the effort and they will too. I would recommend Fortis College to the person just high school, to someone looking for a career change, etc. There is no age limit to education and Fortis believes that. In closing, I would like to thank the Smyrna Campus for being here for me in this new chapter of my life..."

"I greatly appreciate Mrs. S., Mr. W. and Mr. S. because since I started they have been nothing but an amazing. Mrs. S. is the best ever she has really got me through this program because even the times I wanted to give up she motivated me to keep going and telling me I can get through it and even when times get hard never give up so hiring her was the best choice you could ever make. As far as the college it is a great opportunity and they actually help you with anything you are willing learn, welding is a great program and we have a great staff."

The school even helps you get a job at the end of the program, and they really did set me up with a sucessful job near my house. Overall, a wonderful school to attend."

"I have enjoyed the program this far. I think its a good program. Only suggestion is we need more bathrooms. The school has a lot of space so this should be an easy fix. I have attended for 7 months and I'm excited for graduation. Thank you Fortis for being a good school."

"I loved the program, the teachers were amazing and the course info was presented in a fun and exciting way. At times the class was challenging due to being an accelerated program but the teachers and students all pitched in to help keep the info easy to absorb."

"A few months ago I lost my job. So I started looking for a job that compared to the past experience that I had, and something that would allow me to make a difference in other people lives. Well I filled out application after application, after application. So looked into different schools in my area; although Fortis was kind of far I went to the school and took a tour. The staff was extremely nice and willing to so see what I wanted to do with in my life to have a successful career. After speaking with a career advisor, I chose welding. I thought I would not make it because it was something new to me. I had a chance to meet with my instructors as an one on one project for advice to learn how I could be less defeated or intimidated. They made time for me before and after class to ensure that I was comfortable with my class work and lab projects. I can say it was well worth it. I have made the Deans List several terms and I am less defeated by my fears. I thank God that he has placed the staff in my path to direct my future. I would advise anyone making a career change or just wanting to see what options that can be afforded them to please put Fortis College on their short list to get a foot up on their new career goals. Thanks Fortis for everything."

"I started attending Fortis and was a little iffy at first, but the further I got into the program the more I loved it! The hands on is helpful for all of the students. Mr. Mays and Mrs. Swallows are very good instructors. I am currently in my clinical rotation and feel as though I was very prepared for my hospital."

"Do not judge every Fortis by what you read because where I went (Richmond, Va) was great for dental assisting. It has CODA accreditation and the instructors know their stuff. I was nervous but prepared for my extern and even got hired making good money and PASSED my CDA. I am glad I went there and had the instructors I did, they really help you learn the material and help you with personal stuff too. They really care. THANK YOU for everything! (Richmond, Va)"

"This school is not only amazing. It has taught me a lot that I didnt think I would be able to learn. The teachers work well with each individual to assure that each student has a great experience. Each student has the potential to be great and with the help of students and faculty it has become possible for many others like myself. Definitely recommend"

"This school is like two monkeys playing football. No one knows what they are doing. Always arguing over lack of supplies. Instructors berating students. The teachers expect us as students to be professional yet they have no clue what that word means. Save your money NEVER ATTEND FORTIS COLLEGE IT'S A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY."

"I loved my courses and the faculty at Fortis College were well qualified and caring. The program and curriculum were structured for working adults. I was able to earn my degree while working full-time with a family. I would recommend Fortis to anyone wishing to advance their skills or move into a new career. The best feature about being a Fortis graduate is Career Placement and advisors who work hard to help you to be career-ready!"

"STUDENTS BEWARE!!! they lie to you up front... these credits DO NOT TRANSFER ANYWHERE!!! they tell you they do.... lied to! We started with over 30 students in health assessment (NEW TEACHER!!). When only 15 got to pharmacology, (NEW TEACHER AGAIN!!!) only 4 passed the class... the teachers do not write their tests.... the administration do... HELLO how can you teach when the teacher doesn't know what is on the test..... THEY TELL you that you can repeat the class.... OH>. and you will pay to retake it also!!! BIG BUCKS. I waisted $25,000 (student loans) on nothing... left after pharm... complete waist of time. not only do I not have a degree but I will have to pay for this bad school who just wants your money... they don't care about teaching the student how to be a good nurse... or how to help you understand information... don't waste your time in the Salt Lake City campus... ITS A JOKE!!!"
