My parents think I am a drug dealer at this school GI bill gave me 350 dollars one month. Veterans have student loans and toll roads are not free for veterans with DV license plates - terrible planning
School doesn't teach at all what so ever aircraft that are here do not even get touched. Your working on getting a A&P certificate for commercial aircraft but yet there's only private aircraft that don't even get touched. Waste of money. Teachers don't even teach they jus sit down and hand you a packet. 50 grand for that. You might as well just download prepware and do it at home save the trouble
you get what you put into this school. if you come to class, study and are dedicated, you will graduate. If you try to take the easy way out and pretend this is high school, you don't stand a chance. Instructors are pretty good, people up front and there for you when you need them. Overall my experience as pretty good.
The school will give you a general understanding of what it takes to become an Aviation Maintenance Technician. They do a good job of starting from the basics so even if you do not have a background in the industry you will have a strong foothold to build off of.
I go to the Houston (Airport Blvd) location and it is completely about money and nothing about the actual students the force you to do things that were not discussed in the original student contract. We are currently being forced to undergo a extra class that was never discussed at the beginning and forced to do a majority of our test within a 2 - 3 week period which basically means we have to compress 18 months of knowledge into that set amount of time while some of us have children to take care of and full time jobs to maintain. A total scam beware of AIM!!!
Its high in demand due to the flight increase. The school staff helps you in every way they can.
The teachers will teach you and show you everything you need to know to get your career started. The exam is giving at the school and paid for thru first time around. After you have finished, they have job placements available to the students.
This is the best experience I've had thus far. From picking up the phone and calling to get information to enrolling. The staff is very helpful and yo don't have to feel pressured if you decided that this isn't what your looking for after they have informed you of all the requirements. They literally sit down with you and explain everything to you about the school
AIM provides every available resource for students. For example, if you have a project you can stay for a couple of hours working on it. If you have to research for a project you are working on, the computer is always available. AIM has a program that finds you a job when you get your technician license.
Like i said the resources on the campus are always there open and ready. Main focus of the school is to train/teach students to become the next generation of licensed technician. Without aviation technicians those planes would be worthless on trips or vacations.
There is always a computer lab available, always open when you need it. The school lets students work on their assignment when ever they want. If need help with technology just call anyone and they will assist you.
Your not gonna like everybody you meet but thats the real world and you have to deal with it or just keep on keeping on
ITS a GOOD SCHOOL – I WOULD DO THE SCHOOL AGAIN IF I HAD THE CHANCE BECAUSE IT OPENS MORE DOORS FOR YOUR FUTURE AND THE EXPERIENCE IS DIFFICULT TO RECEIVE ANYWHERE ELSE
EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST – THE EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST THE TOPICS ARE AWESOME AND STRAIGHT TO THE POINT TO WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO OUT IN THE FIELD AND ANY TYPE OF MECHANICS SUCH AS AUTOMOTIVES THE CLASSES ARENT FLEXIBLE AND TRANSFERRING CREDITS IS DIFFICULT AND IT IS LIMITED
Expensive but Worth It – It is e,pensive but it is worth the education the only thing is the teachers are not there most of the time to teach us the right information and we have to pay 35 grand. The certification and job is legit and the financial process is quick and easy just paying it off monthly at the same time is expensive. The total tuition is worth the degree but its the information you get from the teachers or instructors is hard to receive when the instructors are not there. But I like the classes and subjects
this school sucks some instructors dont teach but just read out of the book which you can do in your livingroom
