I can not say enough bad things about Lincoln Tech. WHATEVER YOU DO DON'T GO (X1,000!!!) It was an absolute SCAM!!! They tell you you'll be taught about the trade of hvac, but everything you do is book learning, "NO HANDS ON" at all!!! WAISTE OF MONEY!!!
this was the worst school I ever attended in my life. It was all basically self taught, and the instructors we did have had favorites and passed them with ease. I wish I NEVER EVER went here. I DO not recommend it. Apply to a real school , not this joke of a place.
My stay here has been draining of my work ethic and overall time. It took me two months to find a job due to the lack of help received compared to what was promised, and in essence this school is just a small prison. Dorm punishments are unfair and inconsistent. I had received 20 hours of community service on campus merely for free labor due to me having a girl in my room. Neither me or her were in any sort of situation that we were doing something and we were both clothed. Yet I talked to another student who said they caught him on camera with a girl entering his room for 5 hours, and he received nothing. The teachers in the program Im attending want to help you, and they show it. Some just merely watch and play favorites. They would rather work you to death and get your money than give you a proper inviting learning environment overall on campus. I planned on returning to this school for multiple courses, but after I finish this 6 month course I am done and gone.
Don't go here! Find a local program. The representative who signed me up lied multiple times, wish I had found this site before now. Was told I would have great room mates- Collegiate housing services will not help when they set you in an apartment with drug dealer, won't help when they give you a room mate who will not bath either. The school will not help you find a job during your schooling. She tells you "Go fill out apps". The teachers are only half there. If he has decided to quit, he stops teaching, half way through the month he stopped teaching us. The equipment we were too learn on was half missing so we never got proper education. Just don't do it.
I want to how we can do about Lincoln tech I read many compliant about then but what we can do? i have the same problem about paid back everything when you have a personal issue like family death and they denied you to take time out. instead they made you to lose all your grant a paid back all the money for a course that you even finish.. this is not fear
I was so excited to begin at this school. They guaranteed me a job once finished and promised me a lot of financial assistance which would leave me owing barely anything. They also enticed me with Mothers Hours. I had one class per day, for a half day of schooling. This was perfect because I had an infant at hoe who was being watched by my great grandmother. I couldn't go for any more time at that time. So things were going ok. Although it was way to easy. The day before our tests the teachers would get up in front of the class and have us take notes. These notes were actually a complete test. It was every question on the test in the order it would be on the test. I literally only studied that on the way to school the next day and got 100% on every test. Then they decided to have a meeting and tell us that our hours were changing. It would no longer be a half day program, it would now be full day. I told them it was not what I signed up for and that it was not feasible with a small child at home. They told me that my contract stated that they could change the hours. I requested a leave of absence so I could figure it out. They denied me and I had to leave the school. Because I left early I lost all of my grant money and now have to pay back all of my tuition. I am in debt for a program in which they handed me the test questions the day before the test and changed the hours 3 months into school. I owe 13,000 for nothing. I lost my tax return this year for this school. I was also just reading some of these reviews. How is it that they say 4 star but when you read the review they tell you "this is why I gave 1 star"
Here is my review DO NOT I MEAN DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL IT SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN!!!!!!!!! If cant understand what I wrote then read this. RUN AWAY FAST I SPENT 20000 +, and the certificate they give you is pathetic. Your high school diplomas are more professional than what they give you.
I am a newly enrolled student at Lincoln technical institute, although I've just started, the experience of the college world is exciting. the hand many programs in auto, medical, and Electronics. The teacher and staff are wonderful people, who really wants to help and see u succeed. I recommend any and everyone who looking to forward there education to come and check it out.
The Absolute worst worst worst school ever! If you really want a job in the industry just sign up for ICAR and put your money in that. I went to Lincoln Tech for 4 months and it was terrible. Instructors not only like to tell you how great they are every second but really they haven't worked in the industry for a long time. Nothing to work on, they gave answers to the tests because all the kids do is watch the phones or listen to music. You are being set up for failure if you go here. They not only give you the answers but it doesn't matter because you're not being certified for anything at all. You can come out of that school and be an apprentice maybe. I left after being physically touched by an instructor, disrespected by the horrible staff and I spent more time reading magazines because the instructors don't have their stuff together and the material was 20yrs old that they teach. They didn't even have a back up instructor and I had to step in and instruct a class. If you're a veteran please don't waste your GI bill, I'm a retired Army MSG and I was shocked and appalled at how this school does business and how their instructors teach. After 4 months of nothing I left the school. I brought concerns to the Dean, Dept of Education, and the school President, they would rather have blinders on then fix the problem because every poor student is a paycheck. So, I found my own Body shop job and I'm a ICAR Certified Platinum Estimator that I did with no or training from Lincoln Tech. Please be aware of this place they are "for profit" for a reason.
I admire all of the staff at Lincoln Tech in Shelton,CT. They go above and beyond for their students, and potential students interested in attending. Every one is so helpful from admissions down to the front desk receptionist. When ever a student is in need whether it be help with a class, a family issue, etc. the staff is always ready to help and if they can not help personally they have resources in which you can turn to for help.
