While Dad is no longer with us here on earth, Curtis is the true founder of Winn’s Career Education, having taught plumbers in Texas since 1996. He had over 50 years of experience which included leading a growing plumbing shop, nuclear plant pipefitting, general contracting (residential, multi-family, commercial), medical gas installation and certification, as well as plumbing and medical gas continuing education, exam prep, and special endorsement courses. Curtis held Journeyman and Master plumbing licenses in Texas. One of his last wishes was that our family continue Winn’s CE as his legacy, a wish we fully intend to fulfill.
