ok so i went here to lincoln also. i was a knuckle head tho. i was able to finish the program with help from family and friends who gave me the extra push. problem is the staff didnt really care what i did. most the other students stayed outside in parking lot smoking and selling.Teachers just collected their checks. 25,000 dollars but only worth honestly 1500. i do work for the city now but that was no thanks to lincoln. most companies laughed at me when i said i went to school there. stay away from this school, you can get better for cheaper. i am now taking hvac all over again thru my job but still had to pay them their 25,000 for learning 1 week of basic knowledge

Don't waste your time or money. Too much money and you don't learn anything. They are just good at talking good about the school and pressure you to go there.
