Q&A with Boardman Training Center student, Tia Marapese

  1. What were you doing before coming to BTC?

Prior to attending BTC I was attending the Dental Assisting program in Youngstown. I decided to leave that program because I felt I wasn’t getting the best education.

  1. Why did you choose BTC?

I chose to attend BTC because it’s local and the classroom size is small so you can have one on one time with the instructor(s).

  1. What do you think about your classes?

I like my classes because the instructor(s) cares that you understand the material that was taught to you. If you don’t understand then the instructor(s) will spend one on one time with you until you grasp the material.

  1. What do you like about BTC?

What I really like about BTC is that the hours are very flexible. Classes are three days a week, so I’m not overwhelmed in this program. The instructor(s) explanations in class are easy to understand.

  1. What do you hope to obtain from BTC?

I hope to obtain the skills to become a successful EKG Tech/ Phlebotomist.

  1. Would you refer a family member or friend to BTC?

Yes, I would refer BTC to my family and friends because I’ve had an amazing experience thus far!
