Success Story

I have always been interested in science, so I decided to pursue a degree in Applied Laboratory Technician training. My training schedule was flexible, and the instructors ensured experiments were educational and interactive. When I began my internship, my coworkers were impressed that I had the field skills needed to excel in the workforce. After I completed my internship, Logoplaste hired me as a full-time employee. Students who go to Blue Ridge CTC can expect to receive high-quality training in a supportive environment. My advice to anyone would be to never give up. Even if it is stressful at times, Blue Ridge CTC provides everything you need to be successful.
