Since starting his education at Mohawk, Louis feels it’s a much better fit for his learning style. “I really like the hands-on labs. We do more,” says Louis “I think the theory is more relevant to the actual profession we're doing rather than just an overall encompassing theory class.” According to Louis, the program takes hard work and determination, but that’s what makes it so worthwhile.

We do not have opportunities. Here in Canada, I could see a strong will to change this scenario,” says Michelle.
