Well seeing how no one has taken the time to comment. I think I'll throw my 2 cents in. Currently only one automotive instructor has the talent to teach but not the resources to teach, the school doesn't provide enough for the teachers to teach correctly such as animated images to explain theory behind things like a transmissions parts and components.
No projects are over viewed in the shop check points on the paper work sheets are skipped. So most students dont even know what there doing. The school teaches you how to change parts and sometimes not correctly. Anyone can get into this school baby killers criminals who ever. And most of them dont do anything but copy each others work and some how manage to still get their degree. In the long run this screws all of the real people who put there heart into trying to make something of themselves. Because 80% of the employers around don't hire NCST grads. Its extremely hard to get a job with the reputation most ppl give the school. Now theres a lot wrong with some of the employees at the school as well. Lets take the schools Head of education Mr. Giovanelli or w/e his last name is. This is a guy who is head of the education but doesn't even know what goes on in the shops. Here's a little story (one day 2 new students got into a fight over a chair in the shop. The chairs were then removed and everyone had to always stand) See this created a problem in the shop a student was upset about there being no chairs to sit down and do work. So he went to Mr.Giovanelli to see if the school could put the chairs back. He said why do you have a lot of paper work? In my opinion you should be able to know how much work students do in there shops. Here what goes on in this school. If you have a surgery and are out for over 37.5 hours you are kicked out and made to pay the money for your quarter before you can come back to school. Because you student loans will be sent back since you are unable to finish the quarter. If you have any problems dont go asking the Itallian pricks for help. They will simply say they will review it or look into it. But really they dont care and never do anything. They will lie to your face rather then tell you the facts. This school doesnt care about its students its simply making a profit as their goal.
Best Auto Instructors

Mr. Bill Clarke (died) Best teacher ever in NCST
Mr. Taylor (found a different job)

Nothing has changed. They lie about what you'll learn to suck you in, and then they lie straight to your face while you're they treat you like a 5 year old.

This other "anonymous student" that appears must have had some kind of bad experience at the school. In my opinion, this place is great. I am also in the automotive program and they try to simulate the experience of working in a dealership and have a partnership with Preston Automotive who is already looking to employee us and has a couple students working part time while they go to school.

Maybe times have changed or something since this other guy went to school here, but as far as I know I haven't been lied to. During my admission interview they took me on a tour through the lab and showed me the stuff I would be doing and it all turned out to be pretty straight forward.

I guess that just goes to show that you shouldn't listen to someone that doesn't learn anything because he's too busy sizing up the teacher's jugs..
