Student Reviews and Ratings for William Moore College of Technology

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

Outstanding technical career training in Memphis, TN; has provided important vocational training to tens of thousands of students throughout the Mid-South for hands-on jobs with quality companies since 1939. The graduate placement rate is strong, the current reputation is positive, financial aid is available, and the current school leadership landing new employment relationships and career opportunities for today's grads. The college recently enhanced the curriculum and the physical plant to meet new marketplace demands. Changes are ongoing (Auto Tech, machining, welding, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, property maintenance), all designed to deliver top-caliber technical training by strong instructors. Both day and night classes offered. It's a real school, not a for-profit "tech school business."

It’s strange how the positive reviews are from the uncolored people I will not enroll for racism! How is it Christian again?

Here's the deal, do you make less than $15/hour? You'll be in luck. Go to the Workforce Investment Network. You'll be able to go to school for, basically, a discount. Every applicant is different but my story is that I went to school for welding and took machining as a "minor". I learned a lot and will continue to learn more at the job that Moore Tech helped me get. The school is ever evolving and continues to better itself, knowing that they can always do better. There are schools that *settle*, Moore Tech does NOT settle.The staff are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable in the field of blue collar.I am proud to have gone here and I encourage everyone else to come here if you are self motivated and want a better, more fulfilling life.

Was enrolled part-time and after attending the first night was told that the classes that I signed up for were no longer available. The staff is nice and I love that it's a Christian-based school; however, the front office and the enrollment process is very unorganized. I was told to either switch to different days for my night class or just wait four months until they get it all figured out. I'm very disappointed to say the least.

Overall Rating:

I've been in school here for almost 2 years, and the teachers are quite good at teaching and very knowledgeable about the skills in which they are teaching. They can get good students jobs in their field often times before graduation. The building is a bit old, but the equipment is less than 5 years old, and being upgraded every few years.
