I would absolutely recommend the heavy construction academy to anyone interested in this career field. From the instructors to the career center and finance office, you are taken care of every step of the way. They want you to succeed, but you will have to put some work in, yourself if you truly want to be successful.

It was a great experience. I now have the knowledge of safety operation of heavy equipment and base of blueprint and excavation math. I now have a great career path based on being certified operator

I came to the HCA in January to change my career path and it's one of the best decisions I've made. The instructors take the time to make sure you know what you're doing and encourage you to ask your questions. They have great senses of humor and will laugh with you. If you're in a piece of equipment and are unsure about what you're doing, there's a radio so you can talk to the instructor, and that radio was my best friend for my first few weeks when everything was so new. (Poor Bill. He and Kevin were incredibly patient.) I had an awesome group of classmates and have made some lifelong friends. I was the only woman in a class of 23, but I felt welcome and accepted from Day 1. The instructors and my "pack" really brought out the best in me. The Career Services office was a great help in finding work in a new field, and Lori was fantastic as we worked together on my resume. My biggest fear before deciding to enroll was whether I'd be employable, but I had a job offer the day before graduating the program. I start my new job soon, and I'm wicked excited!

Thank you for reaching out and handling what happened during my time there in a professional manner. I very much appreciate the coverage of all the expenses and thank you for doing so. In light of this, I will happily change my rating.

This was an amazing school! The instructors Bill, Nate, Jim and Craig are top notch! They explained everything clearly and made it all understandable. If you have a question they do not hesitate answering and taking the time that you understand. Career services is stellar when it comes to writing resumes and helping in job searching I came home after 6 weeks to a job with other perspective employers wanting to interview for other operating positions. If you're interested do it! It's worth the effort! It'll change your life for the better
