I just want to start out by saying this is THE best decision I believe I have ever made in my life. I have worked a lot of years in several different mills. It was hard labor and hard on the body. I did not want to continue to do that the rest of my life and possibly end up disabled. Unfortunately, that is exactly what happened. I have been through several different surgeries and was recuperating from one of them when I got as call from UMA after inquiring on the website. I had been out of school for over 20 years and really didn’t think I could go back and succeed for a career. I am here to tell you to never give up on your dream, because UMA will make it happen. There are so many academic coaches, advisors, and instructors, along with live labs with other instructors, that there is just no way to not succeed if you really want this and you use all of their resources available. I am so excited about my new upcoming career and I do not regret ever taking the plunge.
