Jordan

I'm at Montana State University Northern. We have bachelors degrees in diesel (that's what I'm taking) Automotive technology, and body work. It's frozen up here but it's worth it. And our school is working on helping to set up a college down there with the same thing. I'll do some more asking on that and get back to you. Wyotech and UTI are both decent schools but they wouldn't be my first pick. Don't be afraid to travel to get out there and get a degree or some education. It can lead to a lot of great things. I just applied at jobs all over the country and as long as people are hiring I could go anywhere! And I love that, I'm 22, almost 23 I have nothing to slow me down and stop me from going anywhere. Good luck!

DIESEL ALL THE WAY!!! Jp

Jordan, I comend you on being a father that gives a damn. I have never met my real father. My real mom is my best friend, she gave me up for adoption because she couldn't take care of me. And I can say this with confidence, I don't think I'd have my degree if my Mother hadn't given me up for adoption. I wouldn't make half the money I do now, and I wouldn't be having half the fun either.

Good luck with school either way, I'm still asking about the satellite school we are helping with down in your area.

Yeah, I'm going to go back to school and get my welding certs where ever I end up. Again UTI and Wyotech will tell you as well. I just don't know about in your area.
