This is truth - 3/27/2015
Degree: HVAC
Graduation Year: 2003
"Ok to all my veteran friends. I did not graduate because I withdrew my self. I got screwed during my second and received a grade that I never took a final on. The whole class but one failed the osha test and he only passed because this was his job in the coast. Rght now Im out 4700 dollars and most likely will have do a civil lawsuit in order to receive my money back. I do have a good case since the whole class is willing to back me up. Some were awarded a free month of class at the schools cost. I chose not to because it is a waste of 2300 dollars. You can pay the same amount at TCC and receive better training and a associates degree in science. I won't be going to this school. I know no will read or listen to this but I warned you. Don't take HVAC until the program gets better. Also if you talk to the education supervisor Mr. C., make sure you remember the date because he forgets your conversations.."

"My name is Pablo. Please consider other schools if you looking to get a trade school degree, let me explain why. I started nov 21 2013. The teaching curriculum was all based off piwer point. For someone that is hands on this was not the best learning methos. After all the commercias on tv said "get the hands on training that employers are looking for at lincoln college I'm sure you've heard them. Its all a lie. We hit the power point for 5 hours straight. And have a quiz the next day. Its kind of like drinking water from a fire hose. Thats one thing about Lincoln the teachers are test happy. Sometimes up to 3 test a week. Another thing is all the equipment is broken. And when it comes time to work on the equipment we are kind of thrown into the pit with no clue on how or where start on the crappy equipment., while the teacher is playing angry birds on his desk.. we covered blue prints and the next instructor had no idea about what he was talking about. Contradicting himself constantly. So we would be confused and then here came the quiz. Some bs I though. Towards the end we moved into hydronic heating. With this old man Mr. S. The biggest ass in the world. He would say "give me a reason to fail you".  Anyway he was an industrial HVAC tech in his time. He talked to us like we were 10year experienced techs. We had no clue on how the hydronic system looked like or let alone how all the component s worked. But the next day came quiz time. He would mark you wrong on the test for little dumb things. For example your finding your cubic foot. And you give him 200cu ft. He would mark the the whole thing wrong if you didn't show the work. Its simple math you. And we have calculator for the same reason. So unfortunately he would give me 60% 70% on test were i should have scored a tleast 90s. Mr S. would have a notepad with him always. When we were doing class work he would doc you points if you talked to your classmate next to you even through the work was done and on his table. In my eyes your a  low life for doing that. Next we moved into energy audit. It was a pointless class only used to fill space and time. As an industrial tech you won't do an every outlet. Energy audit is another branch of hvac completely seperate. But we had to sit through it all or fail the class because of poor attendence. I felt like I learned more at work honestly. All in all if your in the Denver area dint choose Lincoln tech. If i would of known i would have paid 2800 and taken a training seminar with Don Leonardi which is the hvac guru. He knows his shit and makes sure you pass your nate certification. I paid 20 grand for this lame s***. I felt stupid like I paid 20 for a piece of junk geo metro. One of my work buddies went to and he's well more advanced than I am. And we've been in the field the same amount of time. Please consider another school. We had to get 9 news to see if we could fet some sort of refund for all this bs and me and my class of aug 26 2014 aand the class of oct 2014 are still in the process."

"First thing they withheld the truth they say job placement never happens the only thing they do is a resume no help getting interviews as far as classes if you ask for lab hours that's supposed to be part of the course they consider anytime your out of the chair looking a parts no hands on training as promised faculty doesn't know what is going on job fair never had employers only banks and services simply put don't make my same mistake"
