How Can DTC Change Your Life?
“Without Delta Tech, I wouldn’t be here. I would be at my minimum wage job, struggling to pay my bills. I love welding because it’s an art and it’s fun.”
“I loved pretty much everything about it. There’s some times that I got frustrated, because I couldn’t get to it, but the instructors would help me, and I eventually got it.”
