This school takes people for everything they are worth. Drug user
teachers, no class structure, It was
so pathetic. They took attendance everyday and would literally punish
someone for not being able to be there. a fellow student tragically died at the school and any body that was to attend the funeral got punished by losing time from there grade if they went. The classes
were power point with little shop lesson. Just basically a free for all . We spent two weeks in two stroke with a teacher that was drunk everyday. let alone the motors were old broke and missin parts. Its all begginer and no
rebuilds, little hands on and no structure.   They gave us study guides and
charged over 3,000 dollars for that 1 class of nothing.they said the classes were small and detail orientaited.. wow are electrics class was 60 people. The staff is
rude, they were all unfair unatentive and just didnt care. We all
complained to the cooperate office. and it went unnoticed and got swept under the rug. They flew  higher ups from California to talk
to students we were told we were not allowed to say any thing negitive about the school or else. The president at that school,at the time, kept them
away from us. I wanted to
sue for everything back.  They kept my federal grant money.
I want re-embersed for the full classes I took also. It was no good and
taught nothing. No lesson plan. It cost so much to live there and they
housed us 25 miles from school and we had to be there at 6:30 am! One
of the teachers even drank at his car
at break time. They covered everything up. They fired their faled staff
after I was gone. But I'm out almost 10,000 dollars in loans and my
grant, in addition to the class I want re-embersed for. There is so
much to say here. I pay back high intrest loans
and the total fince on one of my loans is $22,000! This is ruining my
life. I never got any thing i was promised from the recruiters..they pass around a paper bragging of there graduation rate to hire rate.. really 2 people got jobs out of my graduating class. were do theses fake numbers come from?? no degree or certification, and no
knowledge than I already had. The engines that were projects were all
old and out dated and they stated they wouldnt teach rebuilds.! I need help with this still. There are other
students who are struggling with this too. There is so much more to
this horrible experience.i was brutally assulted in daytona while in school. they told me to take a medical leave and take my time healing and come back three months later they have unenrolled me and demand full payment of my loan. wow i caint even walk let alone find a job.  hence i will fault on my loan and will not be able to finish. this is unjust and not fair. to be honest its shady. They hurried to get all of my money and
didnt care about my complaints. I feel I am entitled to alot here, If
any lawyer can help me please contact me.

Yes, fool me twice and Mike, you probably would not get the education that you thought you were entitled to.
You only get the education that you put effort into. It is clear from your lack of grammar and spelling skills that your comprehension would also lack. Kurt Heinrich was an instructor when I attended AMI in 1985. I had received a 5 month Program of Study. I DID work in the Industry for 16 years. I learned much as I put much effort into learning. At 24 years old I certainly could have paid better attention, not considered my stay in Daytona Beach a vacation and learned more.

I worked at that time to pay my rent and to eat. I also attended classes full time and I did have a 4 year old child. I had a wonderful experience, as I did treat it as my lifesgoal to become a licensed motorcycle mechanic. Goal accomplished. As a woman it was an even more difficult task at that time. 1980's was a much more chauvanistic time. I aslo know a girl from Canada who attended at the same time as I and she continued in the Industry also for many years.

You get out of anything in this life what you are willing to sacrifice, the time and energy that you are willing to spend.

I applaud you, bagbobnchop. Author of: Probably better off!

I atended Daytona State College 2011/2012, and had met several students attending Wyotech at that time. I have kept in touch with a few. A girl from Arkansas, did do well also. She obtained a position at ROAR after graduation and has since returned to Ark. A friend from Alaska has obtained work in Ocala and has been woring since March of 2012.. It is what you are willing to put into it.

Of course there are the stories of those who drop out. I had a friend from home , OHIO, who continued to drive drunk. He was in an accident, ijuring my friend, he recieved a slap on the wrist as this was his 5th DUI. He did stay in Daytona jail for 3 months and went home. Completely his fault. Another frined dropped out to care for HER 4 children and then made her husband drop out as she couldn't, due to jealousies allow him to get his education while she was at home with HER children. Not his. This made no sense. 

If you need help financially, the local DPW office will give foodstamps to students, as the loans are not considered income. There is much affordable, adequate housing in Daytona. It isn't a vacation. Do not treat it as one. Your Genesis loans are more than enough to pay rent and electric. Most apartment complexes offer free cable, asThe Barrington Apartments at Vine and Derbyshire Rds.

You even have a Shuttle that takes you to school if you did not come to Daytona with a car or motorcycle.  You have no excuse for your failure.

I also attened the Daytona campus @ that time managing to graduate would of been national technical honor society had one teacher not had a bad day and took 140 profesional points in 1 day (cussing at me until i told him to f off)

I did learn alot yet a few teachers need no be teaching the electrics teacher would rather chase me out side for smoking ( mind you im 44 years old) than help students that need sign offs inside the labs

so feeling that i needed more that i got from Daytona I enrolled in the Laramie campus for ASM (applied service managment and collision  what a mess this school has been

We rented an apartment from an administrator (slum loard) with in 2 months they were trying to evict for me with holding rent while asking for code violations to be repaired infact with the strange Wyoming laws we were evicted with the rent current

no big deal we are happy to be out of that place

if your married you can not get into wyotech housing or they will seporate you and your spouse

backing up to the newest problem all my paper work was submited in june to come to school  here it is november and i was called to the financial aid office friday and 2 times today my genesis loan was not submited and now denied for non payment

The finincial aid rep who was taking care of alot of students loans was fired for not doing his job so a new rep was submiting my paperwork told me my i could no longer attend school

after arguing about who was right we got genesus lending on the phone. they didnt know i was enrolled in the laramie campus because of the failier of the former rep

so after correcting the payment schedule I made my payment and was aloud to return to class wyotech was putting the blame for mismanagment on everyone except them selves while genesis lending told me and them it was absolutly there fault

now the classrooms are over loaded but they have 4 teachers for 80 students that dont sound bad except for any given day 2 teachers are out sick or on vacation not much baby sitting going on the classes are loud and the joking around by the students and teachers gets way out of hand alot of sexual and inappropriate descussions that make my wife uncomfortable at best

I will have over 100,000 invested in my education with my wife and with out playing the wyotech games im not sure i will get any job or recomendation from the school

the Daytona rep has not sent me 1 single job offer

yes that teacher was drunk and was finally fired the brightest spot was attending kurts class has to be the best teacher in all of the campuses (Daytona, Harley )

Probably better off

AUTHOR: bagbobnchop - (United States of America)

Funny how there are so few who have to complain.  I've been here almost 6 months now and haven't had any problems, run a 4.0, perfect attendance, and don't feel like I've been lied to or screwed.  I know a guy who complains about not having and money, is always getting food from the school, but just spent a few hundred dollars on a new tattoo, but had the nerve to complain when the school wouldn't give him food because he had spent his money on a tattoo.  Well duh, that's what happens when you don't have your priorities straight.  I've been around the world a few times and have my share of bills, I live cheap thanks to my bills but still happen to make it.  I honestly wish the school would screen the potential students a little better and wuit letting any joe in off the street come in, would prevent a lot of the class time distractions that we have.  Our class has gone from over 40 students to the mid 20's.  Most of them I can say I'm glad they're gone.  They tell you from the get go the rules, including attendance, you have a job, you miss work or show up late, you don't get paid, do it enough you get fired.  Some of the equipment is out dated or has been studentized pretty bad, hey that's more of a challenge.  While in electrics I got 4 bikes running on my own time that they never thought would run after they had been torn up so bad.  I had almost no knowledge of motorcycles prior to coming here, now I'm almost ready to go to work.  I've got 3 shops, one of them a major dealership waiting for me to graduate and get back home to put me to work.

  Grow up, it's life, it isn't hard to follow a few simple rules and do what you have to do.  Tired of listening to a bunch a kids complaining when this is the first time they've left mommy and daddy.
