Mechanics will always be needed in this world, so job opportunities will always be out there, though they may be scarce at times.The school should try harder to control and train instructors that are disrespectful and rude to students.
Good school for all programs except automotive and tuner programs. These programs are being taught like hobbies and not real careers, so education suffers for students in these fields.
