This course was FANTASTIC. I am a bit of a “serial course taker” and this was possibly the best training type course I have ever taken. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and talented at teaching what they know to people who have little or no background in mechanics. They are also very charismatic and make the material interesting and fun, as well as relevant. The facilities are excellent and went beyond my expectation. The garage is clean, warm, and well lit. The selection of tools and availability for students to use was key to this being a successful experience and the limit on student numbers ensured that everyone had an equal opportunity to get their hands dirty and do the practical lessons. I can’t recommend this course highly enough! I feel like I have gained an entirely new skill set and I look forward to putting it to use over the next months (and years) as I work on my own car. As an aside, although I would expect no less from a college, I want to commend both instructors for the exceptionally equal way that women were treated on this course. I entered my first lesson prepared to have to “stick up for myself” in a traditionally male-oriented area of study, and I never once had the slightest indication from the instructors or from the other students that I was in any way different from the men. While this should be the norm, sadly it isn’t in the automotive world and it is often frustrating just walking into a shop to buy parts. Well done for fostering such a gender-equal and positive atmosphere!
This is a very friendly and supportive college. The teaching quality is quite good. I had a lovely time there and I learned a lot. Only negative is that the enrollment procedure was awful and confusing.
