Talk about your experience at Ecotech and its value to your life.

I value the experience that I have had at Ecotech. It has increased my earning potential with skills that are fundamental yet not always available in industry. In some ways my education that I have received has over prepared me for my current career but in doing so it will insure my advancement in my present career.
