is Marine Mechanics institute a good choice for some interested in becoming a marine technician?
It's come to the point in my life where i need to find a career path, and i need to get on the road to completing it ASAP. So being that i love to scuba dive, I love anything to do with the ocean, and I've always been interested in becoming a mechanic, I've decided to look into a career in the marine mechanic field. I've been interested in the UTI programs for quite sometime now, so naturally i turned to the MMI program in orlando florida. I just wanted to ask some questions before i spent 25 grand and have a bunch of loans and no job to pay them off. Is there really a huge job market for boating mechanics like the school claims? The guy I've been talking to "my counselor" if you will lol, is telling me that if i graduate i can go back to MMI free of charge when ever i want, to brush up on stuff if i need to do so. Is this true? Students that are or have been enrolled to the MMI in Orlando, how do you like the program? do you feel like it's worth the money? Students that have graduated, was it hard to find a job after the program?, Does the school really offer Job placement? do you feel like the school is worth 25,000 bucks? I've been researching the school on yahoo answers, and there have been some employers bad mouthing the program, claiming that the students that come from there "know absolutely nothing" and they've had to completely retrain them, and that they will never hire another person that comes from MMl again . Is there an employer that can back this up? Is there a better alliterative to this school? How much money do marine mechanics generally make? I just want any feedback i can get from students employers etc. Please help

You would do far better getting you ASE Certification for the Automotive field. There are far more cars out there, and dealerships, auto shops, and even independents who need... More
