Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students.

My Husband graduated from here, he enjoyed school but the whole "helping with a job search" is literally the biggest lie. They haven't helped in any way. The relationships they claim to have with these companies that hire their graduates must be out of business because when we reached out to the school after about the 3rd time they finally got back with us to tell us they didn't have any leads and every other job listing wants someone with years of experience. All that we left with is a ton of student loan debt and no help whatsoever.

Excellent school. Excellent instructors and staff. Highly recommended for people who like to work with their hands or don't want to sit behind a desk all day. Cannot wait to start my new career.

One of the best decisions I've ever made was to go to Northwestern Tech. I got a job in the field before I even graduated and I feel like the school greatly prepared me for work out in the field. I never had a teacher or met a staff member here that I didn't like. They are super helpful and friendly. There really isn't a better school for HVAC in Michigan than Northwestern. Not a day goes by that I don't love my job and I'm happier than I've been in my entire life and it's all thanks to this school.

Being enrolled at the technical school I can say one thing technical schools are what you make of them if you don't pay attention show up late there's no way you're going to keep up I watched a lot of people not try at all and then get bad grades and then sit there and cry and whine because they didn't know what was going on I had no problem finding employment through Northwest Tech and now I'm on my own with my own van and equipment. there are a lot of things that the school can improve on.

Overall Rating:

Very compassionate teachers, they really took their time in explaining things in the most simple and basic ways possible until I understood, very thorough. I have been out of school for years and it seems the instructors really take that into consideration inside the classroom, they were always willing to stay after class to answer any questions I may have had. Also there was tutoring available on Fridays if I felt that I needed any additional help. If you want to learn and be successful in this trade this is the place to be! Good luck to you!!
