Very good school, I miss this school taught me a lot more than being a tech. I wish I could go back and learn more have work though. I like way the course are set up. I was scared to leave my parents home and go to wy but when got there I every one was nice I had friend at school and friend's at church one of the experience in my life
I went to Wyotech in Laramie and it completely ruined my entire outlook on wanting to be a mechanic. The teachers are great people and great friends. Great teachers they aren't. The school is a joke. Please do not make the same mistake I did. The administration makes it their goal to make you as uncomfortable as possible. You are forced into shaving no matter what your medical condition is. Please don't consider Wyotech unless you want to be depressed and miserable for a minimum of 9 months.
This place is the worst place you can go. When an representative talks to you about joining this school don't do it it's nothing but a load of crap. It has been the worst experience and decision I have ever made. Plus the schools instructors are not the best people they try to avoid you when you are working on an engine. Besides that if you do make the decision to go here, you are doing it at your own risk.
I graduated top of my class, and for the 30k I paid for my education, it was not worth my salary. I have always worked in automotive, but needed that paper saying I was educated, but my salary did not change. I was getting $10-12 an hour offer.... can you imagine working and supporting a fame with 12 an hour.... I left this occupation and work in sales where I make more money. To me this school is about making money, I regret attending school with wyotech and look forward to getting more in debt and attending a higher education.
If you apply yourself and try the school will teach you the basics. The elective classes on the other hand will teach you a lot. Mine was chassis fabrication and I make good money on the side welding. Just 2 months into my job I was promoted to lead tech because of the skills I learned at Wyotech. as far as cost goes it really is to much money my loans total $50,000 and when signing up I was informed it would only be 29,000. The core class not enough information electives are really hard but in the end they are an amazing learning experience.
I was there when a group of the best teachers were let go. Big mistake. The equipment we learn on is destroyed and never works. The teachers care and try to make due with what they have. It costs to much money to go here. No one will hire Wyotech grads. Talked down to by office people.
This is the worst school I have ever been to, that is saying a lot I have 5 degrees and one of them is a teaching degree. The reasons why I would not attend this school are as follows. One, the teachers in this program are new, I realize but as far as teachers or professors go they are terrible. Two, to be hired as a professor at Wyotech you do not need any sort of teaching background. Three, there is way to much information for the students to attain in a very short nine month period. Lastly, being a private school it is very very expensive. Now, the two teachers Mr. Bowers and Mr. Slaughter that taught this program need to be fired immediately. After being threatened by one of the and demoralized by the other. I would not give even one star to this so called school. It is in my opinion that students wanting to attend this Tech school or any other due there due diligence and check out all of their option before making his or her decision!!!!!
Do not attend Wyotech! Consider another school! They do not care for you. All they want is your money. You're education and experience is nothing they care for. Wyotech did not even accept my scholarship from Ford Motor Co. And AAA. Wyotech is also being investigated for money laundering by the state of California. Please reconsider.
Teachers are great but they just fired most of the best of them so I don't believe this is a good school anymore. I paid way to much money to come to this school to have them steal my education half way through by let all the good teachers go... please don't come to this school.
Great school a lot of hands on and very helpful. Not all my teachers were great, but I have to say most of them knew their trade and thats why i keep in contact with them. At the time i was attending school i was working in retail, now 4 years later I'm a building engineer apprentice for a local union. I'm still attending school through work learning other trades and furthering my career. I have to say wyotech was a good stepping stone that got me in the right direction. I'm very happy I found a good paying career because it took me a long time to find what I wanted to do with my life.
