You’re looking at the testimonials because you want to know the truth about the school, correct?
Well, I just picked my diploma up today, after just 15 days at the school. I knew the name of every instructor: Mr. Al, Jimmy, Big Nate, Lil Nate, John, and Antonio. All these guys were there to help you as much as you want / need to be helped out and stay late if you requested extra attention. You can tell that they truly care. I struggled at the beginning and they were unwilling to let me fail at any part of the process. Do you think Road Masters would have cared that much?
