Bates Technical College Reviews
Bates Technical College is amazing!!! I am currently enrolled in the Power Sports Technology program, and the instructor, as well as the material are amazing. I had previously graduated from the Automotive Technology program in 1991, and though I joined the Army, 3 years later, as a Medic, the knowledge gained from the program has remained with me for a lifetime. The environment is welcoming, and the faculty and staff understand the concept of customer service. The instructor treats the students with respect, and takes the time to thoroughly explain the material. I would recommend this program to anyone.
I'm extremely happy with the program I have enrolled into here at Bates. My instructor is very helpful, respectful, and committed to their students. Getting through each quarter is challenging but in no way stressful.
Bates Barber Evening Class is Awesome, the teacher is great and the overall program is the best, I wouldn't change anything about it, i love it!
