I am currently a student at WyoTech and I am taking the time to write this review because I want all of you to know the truth about this school. First of all I would recommend that you look at UTI before even thinking about WyoTech. At WyoTech if you are not a convict, ex-con, or felon then this school is not for you. This is where all of these kids go to. We just recently had a bomb threat. Most building had to be evacuated. In the same week an ex con pulled a knife on one of the kids at our school. And in the same week again we had 2 bomb squad patrol cars come to our school because they had found a package wrapped in tape which so happened to be a bunch of books. This school is alright. Its a little expense for the education you get. Overall if you really want to get a job and learn stuff without having to go to school with convicts, ex-cons, felons, etc. I recommend that you go to UTI its pretty close to WyoTech and no more then 20 minutes away from WyoTech. Also you will not need to fend for you life or worry about people from prison pulling knifes or making bomb threats. If you are a good kid and want to learn you stuff and don't want to be wasting time. WyoTech is not the place for you.

i am currently enrolled in the wyotech eletrical program and will be graduating in 2 weeks (nov 2010). for the other posters who say there is not enough hands-on training i simply say they need to wait. while i understand that the first module is all theory and refresher math with no hands on and that half of module 2 is the same, the course really picks up from there. in the second half of module 2 you will be bending conduit and all of that math and trig that you learned in mod 1, comes back into play. module 3 is residential wiring and NEC studies. module 4 is transformers and again you will be using that math from module 1. mod 5 is panel building and blue print reading and mod 6 is lighting design and control. module 7 is motors (more mod 1 math again). mod 8 is motor control (yep, more math) and mod 9 is advanced motor controls and Logic Functions. so while it may be a bit slow at first and you may be eager to starting lighting up stuff, the course is layed out in a very logical way in which each mod builds upon the last and if you didnt do well on the last mod, it may affect you on the next one. overall i feel the course is laied out very well and the only complaints i have is with career services (what a joke, they send me "hits" from careerbuilder.com and indeed.com) and the financial department who apparently have never heard of the G.I. Bill and how it works. what a mess that was and i am still not sure they have it correct. overall i give them 4.25 stars out of 5

I took the automotive route in 04' it tought me everything I needed to know in this field and I was very successful after graduation taking my new talents to Mercedes Benz. I did go and get this job on my own as an apprentice technician. Unfortunately I got a DUI that ruined the whole thing and thats what people need to understand. CLEAN DMV is key in automotive hands down. Companys can not insure you if you have a bad driving record dont blame wyotech.
Now I am in the electrical program 2010 which I find great because I understand the way the school works so its a bit more easy for me to understand. I admit some teachers are just there for a check but they do their job its on you where you go from there they are not there to baby sit. Automotive classes are big but I got strait A's because I wanted to learn that is all on the student whether they are timid or outgoing and ready to do this thing. I would like there to be more hands on, yes I agree cause thats how I learn. Thing about WYOTECH is they give you the tools and know how to move forward in a career. Nobody ever said you cant go home work on your own car or home on little projects and fine tune what they are teaching. They didnt say COME HERE AND WE WILL GIVE YOU A JOB. Im 28 years old didnt graduate high school and I was given an opportunity by Wyotech still. The best tech school around in my opinion. Im already doing my thing as an entry electrician making 25$ an hr. I didnt use career services, no comment.

WyoTech helped me make my dreams come true! The school teaches you everything you need to know about basic and advanced mechanics, with tons of specialties like street rod customization. All of the classes are very hands-on so you're learning by doing, and by graduating in less than two years I'm already on my way in a great career.

Corinthian Colleges to sell two WyoTech campuses
The board of Corinthian Colleges has approved a plan to sell its WyoTech campuses in Sacramento and Daytona Beach. Corinthian has not yet secured a buyer for either of the schools, but has allocated internal resources to identify potential buyers and evaluate proposals for these campuses. Corinthian anticipates completing the sale within the next twelve months. Until the sale is completed, the Sale Schools will be accounted for as discontinued operations. Corinthian anticipates recognizing a charge during the quarter ending June 30 related primarily to impairment of fixed assets and recording the estimated fair value of the schools included in discontinued operations, but such charge cannot be reasonably estimated at this time. :theflyonthewall.com

stay away from this school teachers are racist, some do not teach anything at all except about how terrible they really are. the schools carrer department is useless. was there five times and received no help at all. watch out for the financial aid department who takes your money without explaining how they take you the cleaners. do not even consider this horrible escuse for a >/?? run from this place and do not look back. better off to attend junior college or correspondence school where you pay less and get so much more for the money

So, I graduated the Medical Assisting program last year. This school was a little scary to go to considering some of the types of people that go there. I finished the program with high honors and yet still havent found a job. The career services promised to find you a job after graduation and help you along the way! But no... When you first graduate they may send you links to job websites via email of places you can easliy search for yourself! I was hopeing they would actually HELP you find a job instead of just sending me links to websites I can find myself! Also they only did this for about a month and stopped, probably because they keep adding more and more gradutes that have also paid thousands to go to this terrible school. They basically forget about you in a way. They promise you a lot just so they can get your money and be done with you once you graduate. I have given this school tons of chances to help out with this situation, by email and actually a couple voicemails to career services. I actually regret going to this school and having to pay off this big loan for something that was just a waste of time. I am now looking for a different job and forgetting about Medical Assisting all together. This school lies and is a waste. I am VERY disappointed overall.

My son atttended Wyotech Blairsville campus and although he did really well in the program, upon graduating there were not any jobs available to him in our area which is east of Columbus. None of the automotive dealerships had heard of Wyotech and therefore were not willing to even give him a chance. A small repair shop owner finally offered him a job, but upon learning that he had very little hands on experience, did not keep him over a month. The school I feel was misleading in stating they had a 90% placement rate for students who are in the top 10% of their class as my son was and he was not "PLACED" in a job. The cost of the school is outrageous for the what he was taught and the way he was taught. Now he is stuck with a $30,000 school loan and a full time job as a salesman simply from the misleadings we received from the school recruiter and the representatives at Wyotech. I would not recommend going to this school at least not the Blairsville campus.

Wyotech does accept the Post 9/11 Gi Bill and BAH in Fremont Ca is $2133.00. I changed my class schedule from nights to days and it was a day and night difference. The teachers are energetic, eager to teach, bright eyed and bushy tailed and the students actually like waking up in the morning to go to school. The biggest problem is getting to starbucks in the morning and finding enough time to enjoy the neighborhood restaurant. The atmosphere is very professional, somewhat formal and very disciplined. I am a Commercial HVAC student and Fremont is the only campus that offers this major.

They accept the Post 9/11 Gi Bill. BAH in Fremont is $1914.00. I have caught Career Service in a couple of lies, they are rarely available and do not return phone calls. The student body is terrible. I doubt I will be able to do service work after graduating, however, do think that I would make for a good apprentice or helper. I looked odd going to school with a bunch of kids so I opted for trade school and it was a bad decision. My Commercial HVAC diploma cost $27,500 and I'll probably end up working for CR England. Community College and a State College is way better than this
