Most places know how hard it is to get a good operator with the right education. When you come into the job with the knowledge and know how that this program will give you, the companies do what they need to or have to, to keep the employee happy and satisfied.

The faculty and staff in the WET program helped me out immensely. They were available when I needed it. Many of the staff felt more like a family to me and still do ‘til this day with communication even after graduation.

Lots of people turn on the faucet and expect water. They might not think about how it got there. Most people don't think about their water until something goes wrong. I think my line of work is often overlooked or taken for granted.
