Student Testimonials

Richy R.

Assistant Project Manager for the Detroit office of Homrich - Certified Journeyman carpenter

The ACT program was very knowledgeable- not just from an architectural standpoint, but it gives you a base to start with any architecture firm in terms of what’s expected of entry level employees.

The instructors were great. They were willing to help out and were very knowledgeable about what the industry as a whole demands – from the idea of a building to the finished product of a building
