At NBSS, you get a big picture perspective. You know what's supposed to happen before and after. Everybody should learn this way... I don't look at the world the same way now that I know how to build a house. That's priceless.
Ken Craggs CF '07

The biggest obstacle I faced before applying to NBSS was my own doubt. After I decided to go for it, everything fell into place... The Cabinet & Furniture Making program gave me the skills to make whatever I dream up. It was an excellent investment in my life and career.
Brent Hull PC '93

There is no other place to get this type of training. If you want to set yourself apart, NBSS will give you more credibility and knowledge than you could get with 10 years in the field. It is the best money you will ever spend.
