Fortis College - Norfolk Reviews
I'm in the massage therapy program and seriously enjoying my time here at Fortis. The instructors here are great! Not only am I learning, but I'm receiving the help that I need to become an all around confident and successful massage THERAPIST! I was also given a job in work study which I'm thankful for, love, and enjoy! This is definitely a great school to attend!
My experience at fortis college was amazing, the teachers and staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. I also enjoyed meeting new people, and gaining new friends. Any time i needed help with class assignments the teachers were available when you needed them to assist. Through the middle of the program i was feeling overwhelmed but the teachers and students encouraged me to not give up and keep going and i am grateful for them and that i stuck it out cause now i am a grauduate of the certified medical assistant program, and i have another goal set to my career.
My experience with fortis college was amazing. There have been some very tough times but my director Mr. Rust has never given up on me. The medical assisting program was definitely my calling and I'm glad i made the right choice. The ma program have some amazing teachers especially Mrs. Carl and Mrs. A. some advice for anyone who wants to become a medical assistant, this is the perfect school for you :)
