Thats cool that you're going to WyoTech. I graduated from the Blairsville campus last June. What all classes are you taking? You'll really enjoy it, plus you'll learn a heck of a lot and have a lot of good job offers when you get close to graduating. Anyway, good luck with everything!

Well thats cool to know that you were in PA. How was that campus? What all did you take?

I am taking Automotive Tech right now for 6 months
Engine Management 1 and 2
Engine Diagnosis, Repair, and Mod
Chassis
Drivetrain
OBD I,II, and III

Then I am going to do Chassis Fab with High Performance Engines for 3 months. I will probably use my XJ for a project vehicle. My roomate is taking Auto Collision and Refinishing plus Street Rod so I am trying to learn from him too!!

Later on from Wyoming !!!

Blairsville was pretty cool. I took auto tech and ASM. I had ASM first which was cool because it got my three month class out of the way and then I graduated after six months of auto tech. I would have to say that my favorite part was drivetrain. Automatic trannies always amazed me and to actually be able to understand them was awesome. Not to mention all of the auto trannie certifications I have now. Great school.

All I had to do was give them a call and tell them I was interested. Then in about a week or so, a recruiter came to my house and told me all about the school. I signed up while he was at my house and got an acceptance letter about a month later. It cost me around $20,000 to go, but I just took the minimum amount of classes I could.

Well what I am looking at doing is going to a 5 year masters program in architecture at Norwich University, then hopefully going to Wyotech. But of course that will cost like $125000 Crying or Very sad

Yeah, but its all for a good education. The way I look at it, even if you pay a lot for your education, as long as you apply yourself and work hard, you'll make it all back and be much happier than if you were working at a quickie lube somewhere for minimum wage.

A friend of mines son went to Wyotech @5 years ago for general automotive diognostic stuff that you need to work in at any auto dealer. When he got out the local DC dealership offered him to start; $55k a year with full benifits and they paid him in full for his tuition to Wyotech. Not bad for a 21 year old kid.

Another friend went thier after getting out of the Marines after the first Gulf War. He specialises in Automatic trannies. He is currently working in a large Dodge dealership outside of Boston. He works 4 10 hour days doing nothing but rebuilding auto trannies. He dosent even remove them from the vehicle...he just works on them all day. Last I knew he was making $75k + bennies a year and getting 3 weeks vacation a year.


Alot of Nascar teams hire graduates fresh out of Wyotech also. Most start out in the Craftsman Truck or Busch Series shops, but even they pay extreamly well to start. "Team Players" are a must at that level in racing and generally anyone that does a good job and works well with others and have the "for the good of the team" attitude. Only problem with the big time racing shops is that it dosent work for a family man. Single is another thing thats looked for. Its been proven many times over that at that level of racing the amount of dedication thats required to the shop causes divorces. The shops dont allow divorces to be an excuse for some poor schmucks work to suffer.

When I graduated, I had offers from a couple of places, but there were none around home. The closest offer I had was from a place in Maryland. I decided to stay around here and try to find something and low and behold, now I'm teaching (sort of) at an automotive high school vo-tech program, getting full benefits, a great retirement (public school system), plus I don't have to work in the summer but I still get paid. Not bad for someone thats only going to be turning 20 in two days.
