Successful Graduates

"After graduating from Lake Area Tech I got a job at Connecting Point Computer Center in Watertown, where I repair laptop and desktop computers. After only three months I am moving up in the company and showing my skills. At Lake Area Tech, I learned by working on real life networking and computer problems. That experience helps me out every day at work. Thanks to LATI's hands-on training I'm ready for anything that comes my way!"
