ACESS held a 15 week welding course with SLC that I enrolled in, and this sparked my interest and gave me the motivation to enroll in the SLC 2 year apprenticeship welding program. If it wasn’t for ACESS providing me this great opportunity to experience welding I would’ve never went back to school as a mature student and graduated from Welding School and find success in the trades industry.
I would recommend ACESS to anybody who needs help in the employment arena. If you are willing to put in the effort, ACESS will assist you in achieving your goals. What a great program!
My experience with the ACESS program has been very much helpful towards my education. Since there is minimal funding for graduate students compared to undergraduate sources, the ACESS program has been a valuable funding resource. The program has helped relieve a significant portion of my tuition bill. For this, I am very grateful considering my graduate tuition and additional school expenses are not fully covered and are at my own cost.
