I have noticed a big difference between Vatterott and other trade colleges. The instructors really focus classes on explaining the subject matter thoroughly and using "real life" situations. Staff and faculty create more convenient hours and are more willing to work with your schedule to get a good education. I enjoyed my experience here because it provided me with a good base of knowledge in my field. Career Services has assisted me in looking for a career and continues to help me with my resume or any other barriers to employment.
