"This school is tough, not for everyone. I went to a community college diesel program for a year, served, then WyoTech. This school is different. I rebuilt my ford 460 engine in performance class, ran it on the dyno, and replaced most suspension components. I helped a ton of my fellow students with their projects before I finished WyoTech. Electronics are where most people struggle, especially with the new cars you work on, hybrids and electric cars. Pay attention, finish the paperwork they give you, don’t copy, don’t cheat and you’ll be successful. Best of luck."

"I think things have change at WyoTech. When i went there it was one campus. They just where setup the PA Campus. I took the diesel and management class. Instructors knew what they were teaching and could make you comprehend. We had decent students to be around. About 40 student per class two instructors. Diesel Mechanics section had it the best, the new engines and new buildings. All student hated the BS of shaving and hair cuts. It was even stricter than what the recruiters approved of. Refrigeration course was excellent with diesel classes. ASM classes were drudge to get through. Like being back in high school. But they did teach you the BS to apply for loan and make business plans. General account practices, which was nice. They also taught you how to struct your shop profit on jobs and deal with employees. It's very useful if you apply it. Now the housing was a joke, huge mess. The motto at the school was the housing was a joke but the classes are very good to teach your job. So we deal with it. It was before the campus rooms and it was all off site with the old Buford, Plaza, downy and log cabin hotel. Now the kicker. 4 of the 4 phase of classes in diesel mechanic. The teacher give you the low down. Your only good enough to change oil or brake. If you lucky a water pump. Ryder will love you but your won't be mechanic maybe a techinician if you lucky. What they did is more start you on a career path that 10 year later in the field if you apply yourself you will be useful and have a good job. That's the little BS twist when they ask you at orientation who wants a job and we all raise our hands. They say too bad we only prepare you for carreers. 10 year later now i understand. I started changing tires at wyotech at $7.00hr with some brake jobs, in two years i was fleet mechanic for a place(making $40,000), now i make $26 in a very rural area. It's a good living and i could not advance with out fundamentals but Wyotech prepare to fight in the grease and tire pits where you have to start. But it will making you get out them fast if you have knowledge from Wyotech Overall 8-10 would do it again."

"If you go to this school you will get nothing out of it. You will learn more if you play Papa's Burgeria then went to this school. The teachers do not teach you very much and they were very rude to me. I was very upset about how this school is run and I would not not go to this school again if it was between life or death."

"This place is the worst place you can go. When an representative talks to you about joining this school don't do it it's nothing but a load of crap. It has been the worst experience and decision I have ever made. Plus the schools instructors are not the best people they try to avoid you when you are working on an engine. Besides that if you do make the decision to go here, you are doing it at your own risk."
