    I have been working at Spartan School of Aeronautics

    Pros

    Great place for hands on experience.

    Cons

    The curriculum is comprised of books printed by the American Society of Nondestructive Testers, as well as curriculum produced at the school. The curriculum produced at the school could use some major revision and spell check.

    Pros

    School has been open many decades; stability and longevity are guaranteed. School has excellent reputation and great hiring rate for graduates.

    Cons

    No summers off; classes go all year long with a couple, 2-week breaks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More information on website would be helpful. It would be nice to see galleries of photos of school activities, as other colleges supply.
