Well, my husband went to this school.  They don't tell you everything before you get the financial aid process done.  They lie until the orientation when they tell you some of the truth.  Many people dropout, you can't miss more than 18 days.  Everyday that you miss has to be made up on Fridays.

The money that you pay for this school is more than 2 or 3 years of a real University.  Unless you go to the financial aid office to see whats going on and how much money you are supposed to have leftover, they will not give it to you.

The aircrafts that they have are old and outdated.  They try to speed through everything you are supposed to be taught.  They fire and hire new teaches every few months.

You can't get a job as an aircraft mechanic just by finishing the school.  You have to graduate, then take the FAA airman test which has about 6 parts, and costs $1400.  The school only gives you $100 towards this test. Very little people pass it.

The worst part is, most of the items that's on the test are not taught in the school.  My husband had to study other books that we bought online to pass this test. Each part costs a certain amount and if you fail, you have to pay the amount again before retaking.

After he passes everything, the career counselor puts him in a job at AAR Corp in another state.  She has placed many graduates there.  She's friends with the human resources worker.  Of course, this company turns out to be rotten. 

They people treated him bad once he got there.  He was not trained per FAA regulations.  It so happens that they fire people after they have used for 4 or 5 months, right before they are about to go permanent.

So please, don't trust this school.  Go somewhere else and get all the facts first.  Find out how hard it is to get a job as an entry level aircraft mechanic.
