    All I can tell you is how it worked at my dealership.

    Basically my dealership would sponsor you in a co-op program. You would attend classes for several weeks and work for several weeks. Something like 6-8 weeks in class and 6-8 weeks working in the dealership. Was a two year program. You would work directly with a technician, and get paid too. I highly recommend the co-op over just sitting in the classes for 12-18 months. I don't know if that particular school offers the co-op program.

    After you graduated, the dealership would reimburse you half of your tuition after your first year of employment, and the other half after you worked the second year. Pretty sweet deal, considering you could make some cash and get some real on the job training.

    I'll try to answer all of the questions I can, but like I said, I was only the trainer, and can only speak from experience at my dealer.
