"There IS no better instructor than experience. I was told before I enrolled that after graduation I could qualify as a service manager that could not have been farther from the truth. I was not taught how to do pm service or what to even look for when doing a service. I was hired at Kenworth of Indianapolis in March of 77 I think because of my diploma but it became quickly apparent how much I didn’t know. I was extremely lucky to have a service manager and two shop foremen who took an interest in me and taught how to do it and do it right. I stayed there for 25 yes and then started my own business in 2001. I received several awards KW and the major engine manufacturers.Unless their curriculum has changed I don’t think it is worth the money these days because dealerships don’t provide personal instruction like I recieved"

"I am from Jasper, IN. I was hired on the spot when I told them I just graduated from Nashville auto Diesel. I worked there for over 10 years and almost all of our mechanics we hired during the time I worked there were NADC graduates. I was promoted to Assistant Service Manager. To the best of my knowledge NADC Grads. never had a problem getting a Job at any of the 4 car dealerships in Jasper if they were in need of a mechanic! My nephew is also a NADC Graduate and Worked for the Nashville city bus line a few years, then was hired by Nancy Bear Trucking Inc. in Jasper, IN and then promoted to be their Service Manager!

"The school did need some updating when I was there 12 years ago but the teachers were all very informative and would help every student THAT WANTED TO LEARN. I had a pretty solid background in auto/diesel before attending the school but the instructors would cater to every persons level of skill the best they could. I am now a fleet manager for a state department with over 80 pieces of equipment to maintain/repair and multiple employees I have to help train. I would not be in this position if it wasn't for the instructors I had at NADC."

"Lincoln school is a complete joke. The school is so out dated and is so worried about other thing than learning. As of right now i work in a shop and i attend the school and going to school there is nothing like a shop experience. The only reason im still attending the school is because I';m to far into the program. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYONE! ITS A WASTE OF TIME"

"School used to be great. I graduated in 07 with honors just around the time Lincoln tech was taking over. They ruined it. Completely. It's a shame too, there used to be no better place to learn about auto and diesel technology, but now it's a sham. They just want your money."

"Since I graduated from NADC 51 years ago (1964) this won't help the students today. I must say the school has grown so very big compared to when I went there. When I went there were a total of 4 small buildings one of which served as a dorm cafeteria and a few automotive classrooms upstairs, one was administration with an automotive classroom in the basement, one was the welding shop with a classroom above, collision repair was a building facing Gallatin Rd. and finally the diesel repair shop/classes were near the main part of town quite a ways from the main campus. Looking at the pictures of the school today it is amazing how large it is compared to my days. Yes I know I am old but I thoroughly enjoyed my education there and the instructors were great. Anyway, as the old saying goes " you will only get out of it what you put in to it. So study hard pick the instructors brains and learn all you can and don't expect that upon graduation that you will be running some company just because you got a degree, it takes time but if you learned what was taught to you then you will soon be on the fast track. It worked for me and I made an excellent living even before owning my own business after that I was on easy street."

"I attended NADC from 1977 to 1978, that was before there AA came out. At that time it was only a Diploma, should I remember right. I relocated with my family, a wife and two children, Sold my house from where I left and traveled down to Nashville, TN. I apologize for forgetting the administrators name (Mr. B), who really assisted my family and I. After the tour of the grounds and college, this administrator then got in his car and I followed him to a near by motel to where he paid for my family's overnight stay and also suggested places for me to live. The next day I enrolled and couple more days I located a rental. The training I received was wonderful. I so enjoyed this trade school and I made a lot of friends. With the training I received, I was employed in less than a month in Florida. After a year in Florida, I gained employment and worked overseas rebuilding and instructing as a hands on supervisor for diesel engine rebuilding and maintenance with about seven years in the Middle East, two years in the Pacific, Marshall Islands and four years in the Bahamas. Yes this training made a big huge difference in my life. Thank you NADC."

"This "college" is an absolute joke. If you want a career in diesel mechanics start off cleaning the shop and work your way up. They guarantee a job when you graduate. That's a lie. If you are like me and actually work full time and go to school full time (40 hours each)don't expect any sympathy for missing a day here or there. They will "red stamp" you. Once that happens, if you are even 1 minute late to class, they send you to the main office and you are basically expelled.then you get to pay about 1000 dollars to re-enroll and start that module over.basically this school talks a big game, gets you in the door, gets your money, and then could care less after that. Also they have a horrible reputation especially in the south as far as graduates. I believe this is because the way the modules are set up any dipshit redneck living of mom and dads money could sail through with flying colors and graduate. I applied for a job at freaking TA and the manager laughed at me when my experience was that I went to that Shithole. And it only costed me 20,000 dollars. DO NOT GO TO THIS SORRY ASS COLLEGE!"
