“I left my job of 15 years to make a career change. Once I complete my course at Propel I am planning to either get full-time employment somewhere or start my own business. I like that they focused a lot on safety and everything I learned improved my knowledge of welding and construction.”

Patrick Kocurek

Commercial Welding Trade Training Student

“I like how professional the school is. Everyone I talk to, the staff, all of the instructors, and all of the teachers are very professional. If you ask a question, they're going to give you an answer, or if they don't have an answer, they're going to point you in the right direction, so you can get an answer. They're very helpful”
