    Went there back in 1976 when it was around $2000.00 for 1 year of study classes now are very expensive you should see if you could join a local union and get in as an apprentice it won't cost you anything as long as you complete the 5 year program and the training is much better plus its manditory that you pass the ua star test.

    Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in
    mud.
    After a while you realize that while you are getting
    dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

    It is not exactly cheating, I prefer to consider it
    creative problem solving.

    25 years ago we had Bob Hope , Steve Jobs , and Johnny Cash today we have no Hope no Jobs and no Cash !

    Lincoln Tech is the biggest rip-off going, at least here in Maryland. Everyone that I know who has attended that place thought it was great until they got hired and were forced to enroll in an apprenticeship. They all couldn't believe how bad they were ripped off. I think tuition is about $19,000 now, unbelievable.

    I agree, get into a union apprenticeship.

    I took a couple semesters of digital electronics at Lincoln in Pennsauken. The quality is largely dependent upon the teacher.
