How do I evaluate a motorcycle repair school? Are they all Private and "for profit"?

My son wants to become a Motorcycle mechanic, and I am willing to pay for the best shool possible. Yahoo and Google searches don't turn up much. One in Arizona/Florida and one in Pennsylvania and a couple of Home study courses. No community colleges or public trade schools that I could identify. What questions do I need to ask of these shools? What do i need to look out for? Is home study a viable alternative when it comes to finding a job? I just don't want to be snookered by a flashy sales presentation, I want to make sure we find a school with real "meat" to it.

You do not want to talk to the schools. They are in the busines of getting students. Talk to the top Motorcycle shops and ask what kind of training and schools they look for when they hire a mechanic. It may also be helpfull to see who has a manufacturers accredadation.

I personally think the schools are a waste of money. Best schooling ever is to get an old single jug four stroke and a repair manual for it. Have him start with simple things like oil changes and such then go to more indepth items. Meanwhile talk to shops and see if he can get a job there even if its sweeping floors... More
