"I am currently attending the campus in Lincoln, RI. I would NEVER recommend this school to anyone. I am in the night classes, because like most people in the night class, i have a job. The teachers assume we all have time to do activities in the workbooks, and to study, and they dont understand why we're not prepared for tests...HELLO!!! WE WORK ALL DAY. We're not even being taught, and we have to teach ourselves. the teachers i have now just sit there and tell us what to do. The staff and administration are a joke. they always want you to tell them any problems, but when you do, you get yelled at, or in my friend's case, expelled. they dont care. dont bother voicing your opinion.they dont have they're stuff together, and my class (and im sure some others) are paying thousands of dollars for absolutly nothng. The communication in the school between the 2 instructors that you get is terrible. nobody has any idea what is going on. its ridiculous. they dont care about you. finacial aide meetings were also another problem. they suck you in and leave you with a million questions that never really get answered.overall, this school is awful. dont waste your time and money like me and many other students."

"I went to this school in 2003-2004, and when i registered, I was told that when I graduated I could open my own business and be making $15-25, but that was not the case. When I did graduate I was laughed out of businesses when I told them where I went, and I was told that hardly anybody trusted Lincoln Tech Graduates. To this day, I have never had an opportunity to work in my field, and I wasted over $12,000 dollars in tuition for ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. When I tried to use the job placement program, and they actually sent me on an interview, the job had been filled weeks ahead of time. I have not had any success with the job placement at all. I can supply you with the names of the companies who told me that Lincoln Tech was not trustworthy."

"I attended the local "campus" for LTI. I found it not to be worth the time or the money. And I didn't pay for most of it, the State of NJ did. Most instructors were just hanging out. Not all, but most. Most employers in this area felt the same. I did well there, averaging in the 90's for all the classes I took. I also did well in the NATE exams. Unfortunately, quite a few of the instructors I had were failing the same Nate exams that I was passing. I also found out later, that I was outscoring instructors on the same in school exams Most people that I know that went there, went on to other fields. If I had to do it all over again, I would have found an employer willing to hire a beginner, joined the local RSES chapter, and used the RSES materials to learn the trade from a theory point. It's kind of hard to learn to braze copper tubing when on the day of the class, they have no gas to braze with and they don't have enough copper for everyone to make the project. Same thing happened in the Workplace class. No sheet metal and no tools. You had to bring in your own, or learn nothing. The instructor said to complain to the school so the next class wouldn't have this problem. The last class was told to do the same thing. Even though the state paid for most of it and supported me the entire time I went there, in the long run, it was not worth it."

"Started the first time in Aug '07 and went all the way to the middle of July and they dropped me because I was not on track to graduate in sept and so after paying over 21K for the automotive course I signed up from they let me re-enter again in aug, just a couple of weeks after they dropped me and then today just over a month they dropped me again and said have to wait 60 days to re-apply. What kind of deal are they doing to these students? I had passed over half my courses but they decided I wasn't going to pass so drop me? after they got all this money instead of working with me. To give you an example. still have a problem knowing what tools are what and they didn't work with us on this. I really feel cheated and think I should entitled to some kind of a refund for education I wasn't given."

"It was very different, I'm a little older and used to classrooms. The coursework was great along with the tools I had. If I had questions I did have a coach/tutor whom I could call or live chat with. I completed my course 6 months ago, and am completely satisfied with the end results and the friends I made. It was the best thing i could have done for myself career wise."

"My online learning experience was challenging and rewarding. Classes are held through simulation activities, virtual classroom, lessons from instructors well versed in online education and the ability to communicate with my peers, in real time. I wold recommend LTI to anyone that had a desire to get ahead. LTI gave me the confidence to assert myself in my career and I have been promoted twice since my graduation. I enjoy more responsibility and my family enjoys a better lifestyle."
