Chris Nowak, NDT Alumni

Chris was inspired to change careers after his grandfather went to the doctor for an EEG test, which measures electrical activity in the brain. He was inspired to pursue NDT as a career and joined the college's first cohort in January 2020.

"My favorite parts are all the hands-on experience I have gained from this course and the friends I have made," he says. "It's been difficult at times, but my dad always told me, "Nothing good comes easy."
