Learning a new skill is a great way to begin a new career, and ATS have a huge choice of courses available that have a proven success record when it comes to delivering real world results for students. Whether it’s a Crane Operator Course or a Heavy Machinery Course, Truck Driving course or something else, they all provide both classroom and on-site instruction to kick start your new career.
However, learning a new skill can be daunting, there are costs to cover, not least for the accommodation to spend the duration of the course away from home while you learn. Because these skills are valuable to the economy, there are a variety of funding assistance options available for covering the cost of courses themselves through government and other programs, but ATS also provide housing assistance that makes sure you have the comfortable place you need to help relax and focus during the course.
We use a local business, the Watertower Residence inn to provide housing assistance for students, and we reserve a room for you in the dormitory facility to cover the full length of your training course. With cable TV, air conditioning, a refrigerator, microwave and wifi in each room, laundry facilities available when you need them and a great location just 5 miles from ATS itself, you have one less thing to worry about for your training, you know you have a great place to stay!
With restaurants, grocery stores and everything you need in walking distance, it’s not just a place to stay, but a great base to make the most of your time in Wisconsin and explore this great state in your spare time. Whether you are on a course to start your first career, or are looking to retrain from something else, the idea of the course, especially before you arrive, can be a little intimidating, but without assisted housing plan, we hope to get everyone settled quickly and enjoying learning those new skills that will lead to a new career.
For our valued students who have served in the military, as a thank you for your sacrifice for our safety, we offer further accommodation assistance with every course. This takes the form of a housing voucher that covers the complete cost of your stay at the Watertower Inn in a double occupancy room for the entire duration of your course. This applies to all veterans who have been honorably discharged from the military and submit their Form DD214 to the school registrar, and we hope this goes a little way in expressing our gratitude to those veterans.
Our housing assistance is just one way we make the sometimes-daunting prospect of learning new skills a more enjoyable experience for all our students, allowing them to concentrate on learning the skills they need for their new career.
