Hear From Graduates

"Having never been to college before, it was a little scary for me at first. Once I started my education at Northwood Tech, the staff and students made me feel welcome, and I made a few good friends along the way. As far as my time with the instructor and the Power Sports program, having never touched an engine in my life, the skills he taught me have more than prepared me for the power sports world as well as life in general."

Ryan, Power Sports Technician Graduate
