Pennco Tech is a great school. I am about to graduate from the Electrician program. The teachers here are very knowledgeable. I’d like to mention Mr. Spicker……..he makes complicated things very clear and understandable. The teachers and staff at Pennco Tech are always here for me when I needed help. I recommend Pennco Tech Bristol to anyone who wants a career in the Electrician field.

Kyle P., Electrician

One of the best decisions I have ever made. I loved the school and especially the staff. Never had one problem. The teachers are very knowledgeable and I believe are masters of the field. Hopefully one day I can come back and take another course and maybe even teach here one day.

Ryan S., Electrician

I enjoyed my experience at Pennco Tech! I joined the Electrician program in hopes of continuing the growth of my own business. My handyman background was lacking in the electrical department until my instructors helped me thrive. Mr. Spickler was a great asset in helping my professional growth. I utilized the Career Services department to help in development of my resume and they were excellent in offering advice on my next step forward. I would highly recommend Pennco Tech to anyone looking to get involved in a trade.
