Western Technical College - Wisconsin Reviews
As a forty something returning back to college it is life changing. This year was the ending of a restaurant career after twenty something years. Turned into the beginning of a wonderful future in the medical field. Starting in January of 2018 I enrolled myself into the Nursing Assistant Program at WWTC, in which I received my certification in. I enjoyed my learning so much, I figured I didn't want to stop learning and enrolled myself now in the Medical Assistant Program. The teachers, staff and alumni want to see everyone who walks through the Welcome doors to have a goal in mind and to succeed at it.
I attended Western many years ago and things may have changed, but when I was there it was fantastic. I got a good education for not a lot money. I had a job 6 months before graduation and 18 yrs later I still work on my field of education. I think that says a lot since I survived the stock market crash of 2008 and the recession that followed. I have never been unemployed for 18 yrs. With my degree I can pretty dictate the salary I want to make within reason. I highly recommend Western and in fact I’m sending my husband there this fall because he is unable to find employment with his BA.
I have been at Western for almost four years. The staff is awesome, professors are always around to answer questions. The professors I have had over the past years have been able to help me anyway they can whether that is staying after school for office hours. Also the school has many other helpful resources ranging from help with finding a career after graduation; They also have tutoring hours available.
