This school is for people who PAY ATTENTION IN CLASS!!!

I had my doubts because of bad reviews, however when I Lionel Stoxstell II went to ATI for the HVAC/R program I paid attention and now I'm enjoying my new "career". People who give this school a bad review are those who didn't pay attention while in class, also those who are lazy and aren't meant for the HVAC/R field.. I still visit this school because I have much love for the people who have helped me grow in an industry that I had no idea was this substantial. If you are looking in to joining the HVAC/R industry then ATI is your answer.. DONT NOT LOOK INTO THESE NEGATIVE REVIEWS until you have tried it out for yourself.. The school gives you your first week to decide.. Check it out!!

It wasnt great

This was truly terrible as an experience. Ati is the biggest regret of my life. I owe 12000 and didn't learn a thing. I have been working in the Hvac field for 2 years and can tell you this with a clear conscience: Save your money and have someone teach you hands on. Don't be fooled by the women in the front and tour guides of the school. Remember one thing, they don't know JACK ABOUT HVAC!! They can tell you they offer this and that whatever. Bottom line is the curriculum at this school is terrible. I wish yelp would accept my reviews so most people could be aware of whats going on. They dont teach you anything that is helpful when you actually get out on the field. They make you learn a bunch of science with no hands on. I had a similar experience as the gentlemen alumni. The teachers dont really know how to teach and they dont do enough hands on for 12000 dollars!! The drug use is rampant in the students and they have 0 standards all they want is money. Honestly I regret going. the best thing to do is get your EPA and during may get someone to teach you hands on.!!! The course material is downright silly and will not help you out on the field trust me i have 2 going on 3 years of experience.

Just graduated from ati

I just graduated ATI recently after 11 months in their program. The first 6 weeks of the program went fairly well. I learned mechanical and electrical theory from a good teacher(who no longer teaches there) but after those two classes things rapidly went downhill. The teacher they hired (from Craigslist I later found out) had dyslexia and couldn't even read let alone teach. I had this "teacher" for 12 weeks(he is still there too). My next teacher was "transferred" to Arizona midway through the six week class for playing anime cartoons during class and having students go make bets for at the New Orleans during class time. The incompetence of the teachers were appalling, yet they still make you pay for this madness. A good half of the students they are accepting also have drug problems. You can often walk into the bathroom and see or smell someone using drugs (often speed) and watch them work with electrical equipment. Going to ATI has been the biggest regret of my life. And I still must payback thousands of dollars. I feel I was cheated. Also the person who is suppose to help find you a job is so unpleasant and condescending that you don't even want their help. That person makes you feel like a inferior human being and that it is a privilege to be in the same room as them. This is nothing but a for-profit school that will cheat you out of a good HVAC education. I am writing this to warn others not to make the same mistake I did in choosing ATI to learn HVAC. alumni

Great School! By John Taggart

I came in everyday and put forth the effort to always learn and work in the lab. I also started to work before even completing school. Thank you ATI. John Taggart.

I got a Job!

I just graduated a week ago and already got a job. Excellent training program for those who actually wanna learn and put forth the effort to do it. This is not a school for procrastinators and complainers who only love to do nothing and ewxpect something in return. You get what you put it to it. I've learned alot and I will continue to keep learning. I only had a [problem with one staff member and he no longer works here after I wrote a review on his horrible teaching skills. M time here is greatly appreciated. Victor McDaniel

Waste of time and money

They don't offer a degree and the program cost too much, its a waste of time. CSN is a much better option.

Auto mechanic training in Las Vegas!

I was planning to leave Las Vegas and all my friends to go spend 2 years in Phoenix to get training like this. Now that ATI has a brand new state of the art program RIGHT HERE IN LASVEGAS, I'll be able to keep my job and my apartment and attend school here for around $10,000 less than what I planned to spend on that other school!

School Is A Joke

The school is a joke... $13,000!!!! And I did not lean what is needed. The school Over crowded. Google the owner to see where he lives! Taught by washed up technicians that did not make it in the industry. Do not waste your money.

student

Overcrowded class rooms, under staff, not enough equipment to work with, to many lies from the staff. Be care full.

No one at the school promises job placement, in orientation and class we let students know job placement is there to help students, but does not guarantee jobs. When a student enrolls, each student reads and signs a document which lets them know about the tool policy, BEFORE they start school. You do need to be 50% paid, and is stated in your contract that you sign before starting the course. Also it varies if you are a cash paying student, a Financial aid student, or a student receiving funding from somewhere else. Every student signs and understands what our policies are before starting. If anyone has any concerns about job placement or the accreditations we have, please call 702-658-7900, and if any past, present or future student needs help we are here for free refresher courses for graduates or make an appointment to come see Job placement for help.

There is no such thing as a Federally Accredited School. There is a regional accreditation and a National Accreditation. National is higher than regional, and we are NATIONALLY ACCREDDITED by ACCET. We have EPA the universal section 608, osha10, and 410 a cert that is included in the course. The HVAC Excellence is a programmatic accreditation which cannot be bought. They came and audited the classes and the course work and then it is awarded to the school. Please visit http://www.hvacexcellence.org/Accreditation.aspx, so you can understand what we go through for it. The lab training, and course work comes from our national accreditation. They set the standards of how much class time and lab time there is in the course.

the truth

They try to teach but will load a class with as many students as possible, so the fastest pace they can go is that of the slowest student. The school will not give tools until you are at least half paid off to them.They have HVAC of excellance, but THEY ARE NOT A FEDERALLY ACCREDITED SCHOOL. Ask them about a FEDERAL accreditation, theywill tell you they have epa or havac of excellance, which can be bought.. The "Lab Training" is terrible. It is nowhere near the 50% of total time they promise, and the equpment you work on is outdated and out of use. I f you ask them about job placement they tell you they have strong job placement, but I dont know of anyone I graduated with that was placed in any form. BTW promising job placement is illegal. You are seriouslybetter off just applying to an apprenticship or starting out as a laborer. Please do not waste you valuble time and money on this "school" as I and many before me did.

To No Help - Cont'd

3. Our placement person may be new, but she was put in that position because she cares about the students and will try her best to get our students jobs. Also to this end, we have added an additional person to the department to help our students. 4. We have had a lot of successful students and we always work towards this goal. We offer refresher courses free of charge, and do mock interviews to help prepare students for the outside world. If you're having a problem finding a job, come back and we'll talk about it. This invitation is good for any student (past, present or future) of ATI.

NoHelp

In all honesty the program hjas improved over the last year. I am a recent graduate & newer students are being shown more detail at a faster pace than I was .The new tuition IS around $12,500 so saying it is no where near 14k is a bit of a lie.As far as the training it does give you more info than you would have going into the industry blind. Do I think it is worth the monay , NO.As far as teh placement , they do have a placement person .The problem is she wasnt trained to do this & is flying by the seat of her pants.She tries , but in all honesty the palcement asistance is a JOKE.They encourage you to look on your own & she sends out resumes to prospective employers, but in 5 weeks since my graduation I have been sent on a grand total of ZERO interviews initiated by the school placement office.

Shocker is a idoit

Shocker you are an idiot. They are not 14 k; they are accredited, and also have a hvac excellence accreditation. They also have a real person for Job placement, not a binder, and Financial Aid for people. You sound like you are talking about the other hvac schools in Vegas. Get your information correct.

HVAC exellence

Visit www.hvacexellence.org, look at accreditation in Nevada, and see how many other schools have this program accreditation. (I'll give you a clue 0)
