David P.

Small Engine Repair Graduate, 2023

“The skills I have taken away from the Small Engine course I completed with Penn Foster have exponentially increased my knowledge both in my professional and personal arenas. Not only did the course advance my knowledge and enjoyment of working on ATVs, lawn mowers and garden equipment as a personal hobby, but it has enhanced my abilities to work on Air Force Equipment that keeps aircraft ready to fly at a moment’s notice.”
