I recently (Nov 2019) graduated from PCI's Wind Turbine Technician program and it is becoming one of the best choices I've ever made in my life. From my first initial phone call, they were interested in my success and assisted me patiently with the application process, financial aid, and other online steps that I needed to complete. Through PCI's Wind Turbine Technician program, I learned skills relating and applicable to Industrial Safety, Computer Literacy, Electricity and Power Generation, Wind Turbine Science, the Wind Energy Industry, Industrial Maintenance and Operations, and concluded with a 10 day on location 'Boot Camp' program. I was able to apply what I had learned in a hands-on environment. After the course concluded, I was assisted by PCI staff on how to write, revise and improve my resume. They also gave me tips on how to research a company and job position that would best utilize my learned skills and personal strengths and time availability. As of Jan 2020, I am a new hire of FieldCore, GE, as a Wind Commissioning Technician. I can honestly say, that my life is different now than it was before I started PCI. I was working 2 part-time jobs: as a substitute teacher and as a line cook at a McDonald's restaurant; both were minimum wage jobs. Working both jobs didn't give me the time or desire to complete a traditional college program. The online student experience let me learn, work and test on my time and specifically delivered on information, skills, and subjects directly related to the job I was focusing on. If you want to change your life, work hard and get into a new career, maybe PCI is the path for you as it was for me."
