I love the staff and the instructors were awesome. They knew things I couldn’t even think of before, but now I’m ready for my career in my field of study. I recommend this school to anyone that dives in deep with torque specs for engine rebuilding, volumetric efficiency, and coefficient of friction understanding.Mack D., Diesel Technology Program
