Lincoln Tech Reviews - Certificate in Welding
Im sorry but i waseted my money if you cant teach youreself youre going to have a hard time. They put you in the class room for 2 days then youre on your own theres one techer for every 30 students. I went thru the entire program and luckly got a job on my own. There are no supplies for students we get yelled at for being late when teachers dont show up on time go to another school and save your money. You can learn the same things on the internet its 2019.
If you are considering going to trade school for welding, Lincoln Tech in East Windsor is not the school for you. I am currently a student at this school and it is completely a waste of time and money. The instructors barely help when you can find them and trying to ask them to do something for you is like pulling teeth. In hindsight I wouldn't have wasted my $25,000 that I pay out of pocket for this scam. I would have bought welding machines and supplies and learned off of YouTube. That's basically what we have to do here anyway. It's a joke. They run low on supplies often, most likely because the guy in charge gets a bonus or something if they save money. Unfortunately I'm stuck in this course because I paid for it already. I plan on calling OSHA on the school because the ventilation system barely works and you end up sucking on fumes The entire time. I can almost guarantee the oxygen levels barely at 19%. The sinks and bathrooms in the shop both don't work or are filthy nasty. The hand washing stations in the shop have been broken since I've been here and two of the three urinals have garbage bags over them because they don't work. I don't blame the instructors, it's really poorly managed. With Good management you get good instructors. With bad management you get instructors that just don't care. The instructors complain often around their students about the mismanagement and each other. Also, don't get the impression that you are going to graduate with any welding certifications. Unless you fork out another $700-$1200 bucks for a private inspector which they just began offering. Basically, this is how it goes. Here's a welder, here's some metal but don't go crazy on it because we don't have enough for everyone, now go learn off the internet. That's it in a nutshell. If you are a parent of a prospective student do not waste your hard earned money at this school. I could have paid half as much hiring some guy to show me one on one. This isn't me going off on the school because of bad grades or because of drama, I'm one of the better students. I am just frustrated with the amount of money I pay for the lack of an education. They only teach the very basic fundamentals and you'll leave still needing to learn a lot about the trade and to get your certs.
First of all, if I could go back, I would have never used the last of my G.I bill on this place. The first incident were the school shirts. It took weeks before we finally received them. Now Im dealing with the financial aid office. I had to wait four months before receiving my first fafsa payment. I was instructed to call on the 15th of January. On the 15th or January I was told my payment would be available right after MLK day, today is the day after MLK day, & now theyre telling me to come back Friday.. This school definitely NEEDS Improvement. Im sure everyone would agree with that!!!!
So this school is garbage, they promise that we would be certified but we didnt even any type of certification. I have paid over 11k to go to this school and only come out of it in debt. However I did get onto a union but in order for me to placed in a job I have to take a welding test to get certified, something the school should have done I would not recommend this school to anyone.
Horrible school. don't waste your time. The office staff is ridiculous they never answer or return calls and even the secretary is a pain and acts like you are bothering them. there are other schools go to one of them. I attended in 14/15 and the teacher was ok its just the support staff that is bad.
I am currently enrolled in welding for the 2015 2016 year I've been here three months and we have currently ran out of material for time I would not recommend going to the school for welding or anything The school is a complete joke They take you into the admissions office when you ask about the reviews online and they bring in a fake student and he tells you they are old fake reviews the schools 100 times better it is a complete lie you're not waste your time or your money at the school if you're going for a while then go to Wyota in Florida I will be transferring there within a month The School is a total joke
My review is somewhat of a disappointment to see and look at every review on all search engines in reference to my nephew going to the same school and which I did I do not no what happened throughout the years with the credibility of your school and the programs you offer but I talked him into changing careers in applying for your school as I did in the seventies it's truly unbelievable how all of these reviews are out there and you only respond to a handful of 5 star reviews your school should be ashamed of themselves your teachers your staff your faculty the owners these reviews are disheartening I will not agree on my nephew getting and receiving academics for a future career coming from your programs because all of these reviews cannot be wrong you should be cleaning house on your reputation and fixing these issues because its peoples futures you have in your hands with the academics they put in your hands to help them
Constantly running out of materials for days on end when the school is expensive as it is waste of money They dont teach you the skills needed in order to work as an entry level welder 90 percent of the welding you do is on a flat piece of metal by a welding instructor who barely knows how to weld all their training methods are useless they brainwash you into believing that the people like us who talk bad about it didn't put in the effort it's all a lie I put in tons of effort took in all the information I could and still there was no useful shit to be learned. The only reason I gave the financial department a good rating is because they are real good at stealing your money i saw kids physically kept from entering class because of payments. Before I started going there I read some of these online forums and then decided I didn't believe all the neigh sayers. There are better schools out there do not waste your time with this one. Remember this is a for profit school and as long as there is money coming in they don't give a fuck about you or your career
There financial aid department had 4 months to run my loan status before I started they waited until a month after I started to tell me I wasn't approved and then said pay $791 a month or find a co signer well when I told them I didn't have a co signer they charged me $8,000 to drop out!!!
