    When they start a new program it is always a huge mess! Yes, the teachers come from the field they are teaching in. However it doesn't mean they are well spoken or educated in life. I had teachers making fun of certain religions! Joke was on them 😂 because a student in our class was that religion. He handled it nicely and explained his religion to them. Which the whole class already knew about because we weren't ignorant. These teachers couldn't leave it at that! We spent the next 3 days not learning about what we paid for! No we learned about this particular religion. What a joke.

    This college is absolutely honestly amazing! They are very serious about being hands on, and they are very good at it. Their schools in IT, Criminal Justice, and Video Production are phenomenal. All of their programs are great. They also offer on campus housing even though they are a 2 year college. Their Humans versus Zombies game is so fun.
    I'm going to give PTC five stars because I've had a stellar experience here over the past several years. With the addition of the bachelor's program, the school has enabled me to pursue opportunities I'd otherwise not have from within my current company. I admit, they're student-body is made up of some questionable characters which is pretty evident by reading the majority of these other reviews (absolutely terrible grammar from kids that barely made it through high school.... it's the "We accept EVERYONE" situation), but otherwise, this place has come a long way and I can honestly say, with their regional accreditation, I'm proud to have earned both my associate's and bachelor's degrees from PTC!
