    I happen to be an Alumni of Wyo Tech, and must say its a first rate automotive institution. Pricey, yes, but they stress Professionalism, Academics, and Promptness...plus, require that you send out a bunch of Letters of Application, Course Outline, and Resumes to wherever you want to work upon graduation. I graduated in from there in the spring of 92 and since the economy was in a full recession, no-one wanted to hire an 18 year old punk right out of school, so I joined the military.

    Just remember, even if you NEVER work for a place fixing cars, the money you will save over the course of your life by working on your own cars and knowing when some rinky-dinky mechanic is trying to give you the shaft will more than pay for itself. Hell prolly equal a modest home (at least in North Kack-a-lacky!!!!)


    Good luck>>>>>>>>Rob

    Forget these one year, learn as quick as you can places. Find a community college near you with a good program and go there. They generally have good equipment, good instructors, lot cheaper tuition, and they go slower so you have time to learn. And dont fall for the "you dont have to take Gen Ed classes here" line, most community college technical programs dont require a very high level of math or english.
