I enrolled at MATA in 2011 and was one of their first students.I was pushed to be the best I can be,and lectured with the highest grade of descipline to prepare me for the industry where mistakes and slack can cost lives.They gave me a new self worth and made us see how important your self respect and hunger to make something of your life could be the uprising of a dream career.Not only at MATA is this quality and care for students important to them,but in the whole of the Safomar group the care and growth of their employees are of highest importance. I know this,as 5 years later I am working for them,and I would not trade this family for another company. If you want to be the best and learn from the best while building a top notch caracter, then really MATA would be your only option. Jacques
