internal88 :

Hello, I'm Brandon.

internal88 :

Have you review the The BMW METRO STEP Experience program?

internal88 :

The training development program is for highly-skilled BMW service technicians. Available to the top performing graduates of the country's best.

internal88 :

http://www.bmwstep.com/ - Here is the website for additional detals.

internal88 :

The Step program is tuition free but you have to a top student in one of the qualified autmotive schools.

internal88 :

You will learn and experience the latest BMW technology.

internal88 :

I will recommend you to also work in a BMW specialized shop for hand on experience.

internal88 :

The Step is national recongnized as one of the best bmw program out there.

internal88 :

If you want to be the next generation of BMW tech. The BMW STEP program will be best helpful for you.

internal88 :

Are you willing to re-locate?

Customer:

Yeah I know about that program. I read about it on the UTI website. I read student reviews of that school and about 40 to 50% of former students and graduates gave it poor ratings. I was just wondering if there was a smaller better tech school because UTI is basically a for profit chain business

internal88 :

Lincoln Technical College is based in Queens, NY.

internal88 :

Many schools such as UTI is commericalize and only looking for profit.

internal88 :

SUNY Farmingdale - This is a good school. This is the school that I went to.

internal88 :

I graduated 4 years there and learn many autmotive engineering techology.

internal88 :

State school so the tuition is reasonable.

internal88 :

Sorry, I will back in one hour.

internal88 :

I'm going to switch to QA mode for now. I will be back at 12 pm.

Hi Kevin,

Some of the best school are not commercialized because they are non-profit.

For example: school like SUNY Farmingdale is accredit college, they offer 2 year and 4 year Bachelor degrees in automotive technology. You will learn the automotive theory,engine design, electronically system and engineering behind the automotive system. This is a intensive program and I highly recommended. After the 2 or 4 year program you can think about going to the BWM STEP program if you prefer. During the meantime you should locate a BWM specialized shop and work part time there to learn hand on. This is the best learning experience I had. I like the specialized shops because you get to experienced old and new BMW as I have experienced in real life. You will learn a lot after 5 years.

Bes of Luck!

Brandon
