"Was a great experience and learned new things. However, no job placement (gave a list of shops picked out of magazines but all just threw them away without opening [went by after graduating to check on employment and was told by the owners]), no company would hire me for anything other than apprenticeship (all places did not accept WyoTec's curriculum), massive debt and useless certificate. Went in not knowing much and had great life experiences but one is better off at the local community college. Majority of people from my class of 40+ are not working in the trade and those that are went in with prior experiences and knowledge."

"WyTech is the place to be. I learned from guys that are truly passionate about the industry and about you as a person. WyoTech becomes your family and it shows by how passionate alumni are about the school. Not only did they give me the skills to go out into the workforce, I had a job before I graduated."

"Everything I knew before I got there from high school did not graduate because I missed my third day and they kick me out so I have a 30,000 bill for nothing. So I don't think it is worth the money and you could go to a community college for a lot less and get the same result."

"I started attending Wyotech in Laramie, Wyoming for a year taking the diesel core program and date program for diesel and decided to stay for Motorsport chassis fabrication. When I first started I had no clue about the diesel industry, nor did I know how to weld properly. After taking these I can say I can properly work on trucks and even build a chassis for a vehicle. The instructors cared about our education and teaching us what they knew and how it would be done in a shop."

"When I went to Wyotech there was only the Wyoming school. The reviews I've red lead me to believe the expansion of this school was its downfall. I'm not embarrassed to have gone to this school but I choose it over UTI because Wyotec offered the automotive collision Degree. I earned my associate's degree and have been in the industry as an automotive painter for almost 20 years. My instructors were true techs from the field they were teaching and knew their craft and were brutally honest when telling you you will be qualified to sweep floors and be a helper in your field....that said they also gave advice as not to spout off knolage thinking you know it all. They preached hard work and following the teachings of whom ever you worked for after school...they were right. This degree will not make you a tech as soon as you graduate there is way to much to learn and years of skill involved to simply make a living an what is taught. I spent just under 2 years as a helper before becoming a painter on my own and my degree gave me the leverage to make that push. All said and done I stayed in the automotive painting field because I needed to justify taking out the school loans. As I write this I'm a 39yo tech that makes decent money but has the daily aches and pains of a blue collar job I paid to have a career in. I still love what I do every day but if you are at all thinking about this profession know this...it is hard dirty work that will degrade your body over time BUT it is so very rewarding."

"Do not go to this school. It is a waste of time and money. Went to the Pa school and was not taught anything. Got a chemical burn from another student screwing around and they told me if I went to the hospital I would risk getting kicked out. I went anyway and the doctor told me my eye was badly burned and that I would most likely be blind in that eye. Another time I threatened to be kicked out is when I broke my wrist in a car accident. Got a note saying I could be in shop because of not having a cast and they sent me home on medical leave..... they still haven't aloud me back and is mostly against women attending that school"

"I attended the Sacramento facility. The place was still very new. They had hired teachers that had just graduated and new nothing but that school. I decided to after attending for 2 months to drop out and get a job working for caterpillar and never looked back. In my opinion looking back this type of school is a wastep of money. Just go to a shop get a job and learn. I started as a 60% apprentice and now work as a field tech for a major crane manufacturer. My point is don't waste your money get a job move arround and you will go from making 50k a year to 145k in just a matter of years like i did."

"Pay Attention!!!! First, for all that write a bad review, its probably because you did not apply yourselves, or got kicked out of the program. For one, the ones that report they couldn't get transcripts, its probably because you owe money to the school! also, for those that say you can get this job from a community college or on the job training, a bigger LIE. WyoTech is the reason I am successful. My friends that had no education, could and will not be hired. Any real job in the industry wants ASE certified. Especially because manufacturers require it! I had the pick f many employer offers because I graduated from Wyotech. So, to all of you reading bad reviews out there, its probably something missing from the story. Remember people, there are 2 sides to every story! I highly recommend this school if you have a desire and passion in the industry, and work hard with the instruction and education from WyoTech, you will be successful!"

"I attended WyoTech Daytona thinking of making a career change. Mistake. Not all of the school is bad, however the teachers come in smelling like a bar frequently, among other ideas such as it shows many of them have no real experience in the industry. Classes are dragged out and you tube covers the time they have nothing to talk about. If you ask questions that are beyond the instructors level they either blow it off or get mad at you. After being out in the industry and thinking back to the education it began to show me they do not cover half of what they should cover. Teachers bring in their own bikes and equipment and get students to fix it so they can sell it to someone or another student. No manager has a clue was is really going on. If you donate your time on saturday you will pass with no problem. Many students can miss a lot of time and they continue on in class where others miss 250 hours and are removed from class. Seems very beneficial to the veterans of the U.S. and not so much for us that hold jobs. I saw some of the best instructors ever get cut from the program while assistants became teachers. Several instructors walked out and moved on. I asked some instructors what they did in the field and they gave me stories. I called one business to see if a teacher worked there and no one heard of him. Office is a bunch of cheerleaders that make you feel good but obviously have no idea about the job they do or what the jobs are really like. They act like counselors more than do their jobs. The school seems to be a money income gimmick that is in limbo. I would not recommend this kind of money for such a low paying job skill. The employees try however the leadership lacks"
