Fair questions all & thanks for caring enough to ask.. The school IS NOT YET a real facility, WE have been creating & working out the location, sponsorships & funding for almost a year. We believe we will be open in Spring 2015. WE will have sponsorships & grants from some of the mills & trade associations & coops to help us fund the build out. WE will be soliciting some of the biggest companies in the industry to Fund a SCHOLARSHIP fund that will allow us to offer ever applicant a $2,500 scholarship for their schooling. The Tuition will be $5000 for the month all room & board & books & tours included & they will get a basic tool kit & tool box to take with them. Take away the Scholarship & the students will fund the $2500 balance FAST is a Ga Based 501-3C Not For Profit Corp & we can raise tax deductible donations to help fund the school Our instructors are very experienced industry trainers with mill tech & floor experience, two have mostly Gray hair & the other two soon will! For me the most important part of the instructor selection was that they came to me & said they wanted to work for the school even if it meant a cut in pay.
