There are some fantastic teachers here, but there are also 2 or 3 bad ones. That being said, a lot of the course work is actually research and reading. There are hands-on projects, but you WILL have to read and provide references when completing them. Many people do not actually graduate or get their licenses, and it's not the school's fault. A handful of students are disruptive and rude, and do not pay attention, or do their work. The teachers will tutor you if you struggle, and there are many materials provided to you that give you more than enough to succeed.

Great school, for Veteran's they, explain everything in detail way before you commit to the school. They are very strict on attendance but that is an FAA thing for this type of school. Career Services is on it! Any time I have had a question, I got a response quickly.

Maintenance, you will do well here. There is an attendance policy that is very well explained by the admissions team. Not all of the practices and techniques that are taught at this school are necessary for a commercial airline career. However, it is important to note that in order to obtain your A&P Ratings you MUST know these techniques and practices. This school will equip you with everything you need to graduate and pass these tests and requirements. But you have to work hard, pay attention, and come to class in order to do so. The instructors at this school are great and the policies are fair. I graduate this December and have managed to maintain a high GPA and feel more than confident in my abilities, as should everyone that attends.

You get what you put into this school. Everything is explained during the entry process and at orientation. If you pay attention you know exactly what to expect. If you come in late to class, leave early and do the bare minimum, don't complain when you can't pass your FAA exams.
