Overall my experience with P.C.I. was a great one. I recently graduated from the wind tech program on December 2nd, 2019. Before graduating I already had received job offers! This program is built for those who are willing to put in the time and effort to succeed. Anyone that commits themselves to complete this program will have a successful outcome. The instructors were readily available and willing to help in all facets of the program. Like anything in life, it's going to take working hard and being dedicated to the goals which you wish to achieve! There are very few programs across the country that teach the necessary skills to start a career in the wind industry, this is one of them. Most of the program is on-line, this makes life much easier than having to travel to a school far away from home for long periods of time. I believe this program is perfect for anyone like myself who has other variables in their life, yet desire to make a serious change and start a new career. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is highly motivated and a self-starter, you will reap the benefits of your hard work in a short period of time.

I attended Pinnacle Career Institute for the Massage Therapy program. During my time here I put forth maximum effort to make my dreams become a reality. This program is a hands-on, What you put in is exactly what you'll get out of it. The harder part of the program is developing good study habits and needs more attention to detail from a student's point of view. The main piece of advice for future and current students with this amazing program is; do not give up but give it your everything because you are doing it for you.

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."

I started at PCI because I wanted to make a change in my life. The staff was very helpful from the beginning. They walked me through enrollment and financial aid without a problem. The instructors were knowledgeable and passionate about the courses. All of them were flexible with their schedules as well. I thought online classes were going to be hard, but it was easy to incorporate them into my normal schedule. My favorite part about the program was the hands-on boot camp towards the end. Meeting the instructors and having that face to face interaction was valuable. I had an opportunity to work with actual tools and climb their mock tower. I thought it was going to take me a couple of months to find a job in this industry, but that was not the case. I had a job lined up before I graduated. Companies are looking for knowledgeable and certified individuals, which is exactly what you get with PCI. I have been working as a wind turbine technician for four months. I'm excited to go to work and every day is a new challenge. If you're looking to make a change and want to advance in a fast-growing industry this is your chance to start with Pinnacle Career Institute. I'm glad I took this opportunity because I know there is so much growth in this field.
