Good school if you are going for the diesel program.I when to Lincoln college of technology back when it was called Lincoln tech before the name was changed of what is it today back in 2007 . Those days the school was very different everyone had the same opportunity to learn the program they when for. For me was very interesting because for the first time I was in a environment that was unknown to me. My dad was the one fixing the cars we had and that gave me the idea of doing something similar . My interested at the time was not to be a mechanic at all. But life gives you an unexpected turn. I made the decision to enter the school right after high school. I when for the diesel and truck technology program and graduated from the school In 2008 with good grades. I enjoy my time at the school and they were times that I even wondered if I was doing the right thing. I mostly enjoy when the instructor gives you the directions of how to disassemble and assemble a vehicle component and it tells you what each of the parts of the vehicle component does and how it works together. Back then everything was a little easier because everyone wanted to learn to become a good mechanic or to have the knowledge as a mechanic for hobby purposes. For me it was difficult to find a job as a diesel mechanic because back then at the time mechanic shops from dealers to fleets to independent shops were looking for experience mechanics. It took me a few years to find a shop that were offering positions for entry level mechanics. I was working temporarily jobs working from company to company until a opportunity show up to begin as a mechanic from the bottom up. I currently have five years as a mechanic and have work my way up. I do from oil changes to calibrations and much more. I wrote this because I see a lot of bad reviews about the school and the good reviews and it seems right to write my experience because I'm a Lincoln tech graduate and to show that even it took me a few years to become a mechanic and work for a good company everyone has the ability to do the same and succeed.

We have some of the students working for us and they don't know not near enough to do the job but that working for and it seems like the school is trying trying to rotate them in and out as quickly as possible just to make money. I was told by some of the students that they were told they are about to skip certain courses in advance them why would you skip certain courses they need to know this stuff they're just moving them in and out as quickly as possible.

Lincoln College of Technology has helped me through the entire process of enrollment and the help from the admissions representative, Sean Meeks, was great. He backed me up 100% and got me exactly where I wanted to be to get a grip on my career. I feel that this school is the best way to get a leg up in this industry.
