I graduated 5years ago. where am I now at Wal-mart for the past 4 years. I didn't learn enough to survive at a body shop alone.those auto tech schools are nothing more than money machines for the people who run them. And then you have the tool supplyers who prey on the kids with their promises of discounts on tools, so they leave school with another 10 grand in debt to go work an $8/hr job. I'd bet that only 1/4 of grads actually work in their fields after graduation.
