My overall Experience at this school is fabulous. I've never went to vo-tech, but now; I can easily create brochures to posters to make a website all by myself. PTI is also a unique school because it's very hands-on. You get to work while learning. I would definitely choose this school again if I had another chance. My family was a little unset because I didn't go to the "named" school. Those famous school such as the Harvard, MIT, Art Insitute. But I enjoy everyday here, it is very challenging. I also am confident to complete with the AI students.

The program I am in requires that you have a background check, the workload is not to bad, around your fifth quarter you will have a heavy workload but it will settle back down. Curriculum is somewhat demanding as you will learn some law and you will need a thorough understanding of the crimes code. The facility is relatively new and its one big building. They school also offers an internship as part of your graduation requirements, and it will help you with future jobs, if you so choose to continue to need help looking for one.

My major is Graphic Design. One our first quarter, our professors will teach us most of the basic that will get us started. Later on to the second, third, and fourth quarter. We will built of our knowledge and create our unique designs. Fifth and Sixth quarter is when we're ready to go into the adult world. We will start doing things on our own, professors will help us with our portfolio piece that will help us to get ready to be in our internship.
