I could not have asked for better training. Where else can you walk out in 6 months with a pocket full of certifications, a padded resume, and confidence in your skill? I turned 19 at a refinery in Texas making $37 per hour and $129 per diem. In 8 months, I had worked for three industry-leading companies and grossed $100,000. I owe it all to my KWI experience.
