“Looking back a few years after graduating, I’m glad I went to OIART. I don’t think any other school in Canada has a curriculum and staff worthy of comparison, In less than a year they’ll teach you the fundamentals and attitude to help you down the path to a career in the industry. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them.”

Thanks Phil! We wouldn’t be where we are without people like you.
