“Before joining HVJ, I was a high school teacher for several years so I had no relevant engineering experience—but that's what makes HVJ different. With the on-going training they've provided, I've completed several certification programs including ACI and TX148E certifications. Now I'm planning to pursue an engineering degree and obtaining my PE—all with the help of HVJ.”
