"I took the diesel and advanced diesel program. Diesel core was okay, but advanced diesel was really great. If you take advanced diesel, know when your order parts for these trucks they may show up late, wyotech doesn’t care, you need to get to the shop early and leave late just to pass. Another tip, is get a good tool partner. Someone smart that wants to be there. This was not like college, it was pretty much a training program. I’m from Yakima, Washington but I decided to work at Wyoming Machinery after I graduated. I work on 795 CAT haul trucks. It’s not easy work but I’m making around $10k a month now. WyoTech seems like a good choice if you want to work in the diesel industry"

"The instructors don’t care about you, and the administrators just care about money. While attending I was ignored by my teachers when I asked questions about certain procedures. They leave you alone with expensive equipment and make you operate it with no training. Then when it breaks because it was “teckerized”, you have to pay the bill for it. Do not go here because all the certifications you can get here do not do anything in the real world and when working for a different job they are going to send you to a better school when you learn something for free"

"I am recovering from the bad decision that I made to attend this school , They truly told me that I could earn $65k as a diesel mechanic and it turns out ... that is a lie and only after years of experience , I didn’t realize that wyotech on your resume is something people laugh at . I put my mom into $35,000 in debt and I cannot pay the monthly bill , I am dealing with destroying my moms finances and that fact I could have just gotten an internship for free and be debt free and happy , I did enjoy meeting some friends but we are all in the same situation and I suggest you do not fall into this scam. I had no idea what for profit meant , I thought that meant private school , I was very wrong . They preyed on me and my mom who has no formal education to take a loan for me ."

"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."

"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"

"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!"

"Absolutely a wonderful experience beginning to end. The professors care but push students to excel. They pay attention to each person in a hands on environment, setting young people up for success. There are many opportunities for different specializations."

"This school was the best decision of my life. I had 15 students in my class. I got great one on one win my instructors. I heard some horror stories about WyoTech but it seems like they got their shit together when they got bought by Zenith Education Group. Now they are non for profit. There was no pressure w applying.had a great experience and top notch training with the DATE Mack/Volvo program. Got a good job working for Mack dealer in Tennessee. If you apply yourself you'll get great training. Very strict with following rules and professionalism. There are top notch employers that show up at career fairs to interview with.they delivered what they promise if you're willing to show up for class and learn. Campus housing is rent free and all utilities were included. Is a decent place to live but needs new carpet. Only had to pay for my food for 9 months."

"I enjoyed the school and the teachers. I was always in the top 5 of my class. Many people hated the school due to the strict rules and dress code, but I did not mind it. It is a school for those who are willing to give their all. If you're looking for a party spot as you go to school then Wyotech is not for you! The one thing I regret about the school is that I did not have my own project car to bring in and work on, so I just got all the odd job projects in the shop, but it gave me a wider range of stuff to learn from in cassis fab. The school offers job fairs and a ton of extra certificates you can work to get. I left the school with 6 certificates, and a job that paid $26 an hour. I then joined the navy as an aviation mechanic and received a 4 pay grade advancement dou to my past college with Wyotech. After I got out of the navy I got a job paying $45 an hour. The interviews told me the main reason I was hired was because of the skills I have learned at Wyoming tech! The school will help you find a job in many ways if you try! And they will help you find grants and loans to pay for the school and very low rates. My loan was at 1.5%. You can't ask for much better then that. After grants and scholarships I was left with $20,000 in loans. But I had them paid off in 6 years. It would have been sooner if I did not join the military, because I took a pay cut joining."

"This school is absolutely bull. The instructors that work here are lazy, half the time they don't know what there talking about. I was one of those students that came here not knowing much about mechanics but I did learn a little bit to get me by but the fact that they take so long to get class started that I feel as tho it's unnecessary. They don't abide by the rules here at all. They harass u if you don't know what your doing and out you down, and then they don't help you and if u actually really need help they will get all pissed off because they actually need to do something. The instructor ken and john in the light duty diesel class are pieces of shit and all they do is favor certain people and don't enforce nothing. All they do is sit there walk around and not ask you questions about anything or try and help you with anything if you need the help. And to me these people should be looked over by someone above them. They suck at there job and are just here because they have to be. I would not recommend taking this course. Or hell even coming here."
