The quarter I graduated, the only career services person they had left for another job. The person they replaced her with had no experience in job placement, and it was obvious. After 3 months of reefing and re-refing my resume, and submitting it to hundreds of postings, they found some of us a temporary placement agency to get in the door. I was discriminated against at that job, and went back to searching. Six months later, I got myself a job without their help. They are worthless. I've talked to several other students who've not been "placed", and found out that they use the term 'placed' very loosely. If one of their graduates gets any kind of job (not what they were trained for) they still count that student as being placed. What a farce!

I took the Ecotech online PV Advanced Training course for the NABCEP program. At first I was skeptical, as you are paying for a service that you do not get to 'try out' necessarily. However, the service is great. The slides are easy to follow, and the information is not too dense. It's broken up into a lot of sections, so do be prepared to spend some time on your courses. I spent about 8-10 hours a week and it took me just less than 2 months.

The main thing that stuck out to me about my experience is the quick response and care that the support team shows for their students. After emailing them a questions I got an answer within 12 hours, and they were extremely helpful.

Don't go here. The administration is awful. The instructors do try to help but their hands are tied. I can't believe some of the people they let in this school. They barely know how to spell their own names and they're a bunch of stoners. Rumor has it that their admissions department is getting leaned on so heavily by the for-profit corporate office in birmingham alabama, that admissions will let just about anyone in. They don't care about the students at all, but they make it seem that way when you go to your first orientation session. They say they have a 90% job placement rate, but no one ever asks what kind of jobs the graduates got after graduation. A lot of them aren't jobs the student studied for. They're jobs like working at the UPS facility schlepping packages all day or cold-calling everyone in the phone book to try and sell them solar installation services. Students are told they'll walk out the door making 60-80 thousand dollars in their first job. HA HA. You're lucky if you get a job at all after going here.
