Trident Technical College is a terrific school so far, with amazing people working for them! I rarely ever have troubles with things, and when I do, they are always willing to help and do whatever it takes to help! The only thing that I would like to see improve is their website! There is SO much stuff on their website that it gets kind of confusing to navigate! I think if they just added more drop down sections with related things grouped together, it might be a little better and easier to navigate through! Other than that, I would recommend Trident Technical College to everyone!

I love trident technical college, I adore my teachers and my medical laboratory technology program. Best accredited school for the price!
The classes are very challenging and the professors are not only excellent teachers, but they are very knowledgable about what they are teaching. The only improvement needed is about the grounds of the main campus. If the landscaping was prettier and tended to with a lot more effort and care, the entire environment would feel more welcoming. A lot of the buildings and landscaping seems old and "run-down" so-to-speak. Fresh paint and landscaping would really brighten up the atmosphere on the main Thornley campus.
