"I enjoyed learning lots of new things and when I went out on my own jobs I could see how the skills I had learned benefitted me and I could apply them to the job. I learned a lot on-site because having certain scenarios that you can't replicate in a classroom is good for learning too. I also liked that I got paid at the same time."
