Thomas Nelson Community College Reviews

Being an HVAC-R student at Thomas Nelson is great. All of the instructors are extremely knowledgeable and up to date on the latest industry equipment. There are many training units in the classroom and the split between classroom and lab time is about 50/50. The workload is not terribly demanding however, if the basics of refrigeration and thermodynamics are not understood then failure is inevitable. Part of the associates degree requires a semester working in the field and there are companies in the area hiring people from the program every month. Overall I feel that being an HVAC-R major at Thomas Nelson Community College is a great experience.
Review Thomas Nelson Community College
I feel Thomas Nelson is the same as any other college in America. Some of the courses are not as exciting as others, and some instructors are not as likeable as other instructors. There is a wide variety of courses offered and a wide range of class times which does tend to make it easy to get all of the classes you want and not have to sacrifice too much personal time. Another thing that makes Thomas Nelson great is the class size. Most classes are around 22 students so there is a lot of personal interaction with the instructors which helps students who require a more personal touch. I feel my experience at Thomas Nelson has been wonderful so far and would recommend it to anyone looking to further their education.
I am currently at Thomas Nelson as a dual enrollment student. They have a lot of great resources including a library and a computer lab. Thomas Nelson offers great teachers who know their subject and who are willing to work with you. Most of the work is online, so you can do it anywhere. There is also a Subway and a Cafe area to lounge at and plenty of vending machines to go to throughout the day.
