Tidewater Tech - Trades Reviews
Rating 3.63 out of 5 8 reviews
most instructors are very involved, experienced in their field, and caring. The education is valuable and there are opportunities present. Student services and advisers are not very helpful after enrollment.
overall the experience was rewarding because I achieved my goal and made lifelong friends, however i did not expect to find out later that the credit hours taken do not transfer because the school does not hold the required accreditation needed, This was a huge disappointment and had I known I would not have attended this school.
Most of the students vary in age from 18 to 50 and its very diverse. Many are working class students in search of higher skill levels in order to gain a higher paying job to support their families. We all are focused on reaching our goals as quickly as possible to keep up with the constantly rising cost of living and employment expectations in the workforce.
Limited to No Connectivity – Tidewater Tech - Trades has very limited to no connectivity on campus. They have a small computer lab but the speed of the internet is slow but its very reliable because it works. There is no wireless network connections at the school which is well need for students who have their own personal computers.
School Is Life – The schools financial aid process is very easy and simple, but it became a hassle for me because of the lack of information I was able to give my school. The whole process is well worth it, the school has great staff that are willing to help you and every way possible. They want to make sure they are helping you to get the education you desire and also help you reach your life goals. The program that I attend school for is a very hard program and you must study in order to learn this information because its the only way you will get it in your head. The only thing I would like to change about the schools financial aid system is that they would help with housing for the students who either have to travel a great distance or for the students who are homeless.
Flexible and Convenient – The school schedule is very flexible. The counselors and teachers will help you get a job in your chosen field.
Pretty Good School – This is my second time attending this school. I went for HVAC, and had a great experience. I chose to come back to learn about automotive mechanics. The teachers are great, and they are willing to help you any time.
