    An apprenticeship is a great route for your career as you are learning a new skill but also getting the experience while getting paid. I chose NWRC because I’ve always heard good reports about it. I applied for welding as I always had an interest in engineering as I had done it in school.

    The College offers so many great opportunities and experiences. I got to study in Atlanta, Georgia as part of my course and now I'm employed as a full-time Business Analyst with NWRC's Business Support Centre.
