What Our Students Are Saying
I cannot believe how much I have learned in such a short mount of time. The Instructor Mr Gillespie is extremely knowledgeable and his teaching methods are top notch. He doesn't just read out of a book he actually teaches you the right way so it's easier to understand. The amount of hands on in the class is mind blowing. I highly recommend this school and am looking forward to taking additional courses.
I enjoy everything about this program, and I am so happy that I decided to join. College was not the move for me so I couldn’t be more happy to have found this as an alternative. The staff is incredible and made it very welcoming for all the students. I cannot wait to see where I am in these next few months.
From the day I first toured VTA as a prospective student, it was clear that this was a unique offering within the Hampton Roads area. Few if any others offer such an in-depth, hands-on approach to learning the trades. The faculty here is knowledgeable, approachable, and always willing to share their experience in the field, or dedicate some time to help a student who is struggling or answering questions. I’d absolutely recommend Virginia Technical Academy to anyone in Hampton Roads looking to start - or expand - their career in the trades.
