The reason why I chose STVT was, of course, like anybody else – to benefit my future and to work hard for my children. It appealed to me because I was able to work hands-on and that’s the kind of learner that I am.

Career Services was outstanding at STVT. The school has a good rapport with a lot of these companies – so these companies are more often willing to work with the school and to take on students because they know the quality of education that we receive here at STVT.
