"I DO NOT recommend NTI what so ever the staff are rude and are only interested in your wallet. In the IT section you are charged 12000 to sit there and watch videos from a program that you can pay the website directly for everything less than two grand. The instructors haven't taken the program and there are constant problems with the program working. You don't get credit for doing any school work online with their program unless sitting in the school. Their dropout rate is so low because if you fall behind in schoolwork or have any problems showing up they drop you and take your money not affecting their scores, and if they drop you and you would like to return they charge you full price tuition plus an extra fee for being dropped. Everything said NTI is the worst decision I have ever had the displeasure of making."

Degree: HVAC
Graduation Year: 2014
"I just graduated yesterday from NTI's HVAC/R program, and I start my new job on Monday. Such an awesome experience from the time I first walked in the door, spoke to Admissions (they were not pushy like another school that just started offering hvac in So Portland - that school seemed so desperate for me to enroll and had zero graduates and zero job placement). Anyway, the admissions person really listened to me, and didn't try to sell. The financial aid lady was just as good. And the instructors were outstanding. Our entire class did great, we all got jobs. I can tell you, that the folks at NTI really care about students, love what they do - it shows every single day."

S Stevenson - 6/9/2014
Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014
"I attended the Clinical Medical Assistant because after comparing all other schools in the area, NTI had more hands on in the Laboratory (almost 250 hours versus only 80 at the Community College). And it only took me 7 months to complete compared to two years at all the other schools. I was also impressed by their job placement. I loved the training, passed my certification on the very first try and they arranged SEVEN interviews for me the 3 weeks PRIOR to graduation. I had 3 job offers within a week after that. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND NTI to everyone and anyone interested in going back to school"

"I went to NTI to become a medical assistant. I visited another school in Sanford but my friend did not have a very good experience there. Mostly I didn't feel pressured and they were very helpful during admissions. The teachers were very friendly and helpful and I was able to do some of the classes from home. My clinical class was great and I made some good friends. Overall I really liked the classes a lot, I learned a lot and I got a really good externship.Not five stars because I don't think anyplace is perfect and there were a couple things that could have been better (longer break for lunch!) and it was a lot of work. But I guess it is supposed to be a lot of work.Would definitely recommend to someone who doesn't want to go to a college and just wants to get through and go to work."

"Completed their Clinical Medical Assistant program in less than 7 months. Great approach to learning with lots of flexibility and hand-holding. Labs are great with no more than 10 students in class. School has excellent externship and job placement support. Heading out for a job interview tomorrow. Great experience."

"I recently graduated from the PHL/EKG program at NTI. I enrolled on the recommendation from a friend that had gone the previous year. I was happy with the course training, materials and placement assistance. I am now working in a local lab and couldn't be happier with my career choice."

"For me, NTI was the worst waste of money. They lie to you and wayyyyy over price the courses. I don't know about the IT program, but I took phlebotomy/EKG, and it was awful. We performed venipunctures on real people for a few weeks, and THAN read about it in the text book. There was a lot of standing around doing nothing time. The EKG was only 2 days, if that, I have not learned anything from it. The EKG machine was broken, and looked like it was taken out of a time capsule from the 70's. Their job placement people brag about how great they are with placing jobs and externships, it's not true. So, think before you cough up 4000 dollars. The school is making billions, and you don't get much in return. Again, this is just on the clinical program, not sure about the other ones."
