Do not go to this school. If you are someone who just wants the certificate and know it all then go here. But if you don't know much and come here you will leave with the same amount of knowledge you came in with.

Overall Rating:

Fantastic school with very knowledgeable instructors who have years of experience in the automotive industry. You'll also have hands on experience with a variety of vehicles during five hour lab days on Tuesdays and Thursdays. As an added bonus you can also work on your own vehicle if it correlates with what you're doing in lab that semester.

So i took the welding program. Huge waste of time and money. They have book work but the just go over the answers on the test and go to lab. I learned zero from this program. They do have all of the materials to practice with, for 20,000$. Just spend 2 grand on a nice machine and gas and all of that and practice in your garage. Also in the welding industry they do have a shortage of welders. But this is a shortage of master welders. Companies refuse to hire new people fresh out of school due to the fact that this pos school doesnt teach you anything but how to run a bead. Also the instructors are all good honest guys who are willing to teach you but considering the master welder thing it doesnt matter. And when you need to find a job they give any job they can for 12-15$ an hour but tell you not to take pay lower then that. All around its a big waste of time and money.
