The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

In my honest experience this school is complete trash . There’s a few good instructors who are there to help students actually learn and do it for them (the students) not for the money . Other than that financial aid office is s*** they’ll hunt you down for money but when you need something from them they’re no where to be found . Career services won’t do anything to help after you’re out of college when they guarantee a life time of job help . They sent me a blank sheet of paper for jobs listed in my state . All they care about is money because god forbid they get us new equipment to work on that hasn’t been finger f***ed by students since the 1970’s . Point being don’t waste your money or time here just go to UNOH if you’re doing diesel . 😕 I gave it 2 stars for the instructors who really cared about the students and they left now because of the bull**** the school put them through ..

PSI prepared me for my job and gave me many certifications to make me more appealing to the dealers I applied to. It was easy to get hired in. All of the instructors at PSI are very knowledgeable and no doubt was worth every penny from all the notes and special hints the instructors give you throughout the course. The space they are in is new and still getting organized but by the time I graduated in June 2019 it was very nice to enjoy a neat school environment. I would suggest it to family and friends.

What a special place! Where else can students who apply themselves: -graduate with a degree or diploma in 12-18 months -get hands on training by an experienced staff who sincerely care about them and their future -have several career opportunities to choose from prior to graduation -lifetime partnership for career services / update training I am very impressed with the students and staff that I had the pleasure to meet. They know their stuff and are professional, courteous and genuinely seem to LOVE being there.In dealing with auto and diesel dealerships and talking to them about their service staff, many say OTC is the nations best kept secret. I see now why many employers are saying that.I highly recommend visiting the campus to see the high quality of individuals both attending school and working there. Very unique! Very Industry friendly!Just WOW! Have not seen a trade school go above and beyond this way since the '90s! Great work OTC! I was very impressed and cant wait for Career Day on May 8th!

I just had the pleasure of touring this awesome college at their recent open house. Everyone was so helpful. From my admissions representative, Mr. Whitman, who worked with my son and I on the application process and setting up a tour, to the staff at the school, it has been a pleasure every step of the way. Everyone at the campus makes you feel like they are your old friends. Financial aid department is very easy to work with and accommodating. This school really seems to care more about its students than the others we have visited. We even visited some of the local places where students have gone to work and heard great things about this school.

Absolutely one of the best things my son has ever done. OTC is so much more than just a College. My son has always had a passion for cars. But OTC taught him much more than just how to become an outstanding automotive technician. He started there as an 18 year old teen boy. He graduated in 2016 as an admirable young man who can take care of himself, support himself financially, and make excellent life choices. During an incredibly difficult time in his life -- a loss of a parent -- he navigated through his career with the help of his family, friends, his school peers and his instructors. Those at OTC were his mentors, his brotherhood. Seeing him graduate as Valedictorian was the proudest moment of my life. And seeing him as the successful young man that he is today at a high profile BMW dealership, working on the cars of his dreams, and doing it with confidence and pride is extremely satisfying. Thank you to the staff at OTC, especially Cora and Bonnie, and all of his instructors for helping to mold him into the terrific young man he has become today. Words cannot thank you enough.
