During high school, Travis began taking classes at Northark and continued the next year, earning his welding certification. Travis said Northark's instructors taught him everything he needed to know. "You have someone teaching you all the tricks and stuff you don't usually learn," he said. "Once you get out in the field you know what to do, and you can take care of business.
Like many people, Travis didn't know what kind of career he wanted. After getting his welding certification at Northark, Travis went from being a dishwasher at a restaurant and building fence to making $37 per hour welding pipe. He said attending Northark has paid off for him. "If you take the time and put in the effort, you can make the big money," he said.
Travis plans to work fulltime a few more years, then move to working only six months while continuing to earn a high salary. "You take a year or two out of your life to go to (school) and learn the trade," he said. "I learned from great teachers, and now I'm a great welder."
Northark offers associate degrees, online degrees, one-year certificates, certificates of proficiency, GED classes and non-credit community education courses in more than 70 areas of study.
