Honestly schools like Wyo and UTI and are overpriced. UTI is 32-37k for their 45 week (broken up into 3 week classes) diesel program. But it is only for Semi and up. Granted you can take what you learn and apply it to light duty, but there is a lot of extra stuff you wont use. Refrigeration, air brakes, etc. I was going to UTI for that then realized that you need the full 75 week Auto/Diesel program ($40k) to cover more into the consumer area. But to get really into the light duty diesel training you need to pick up Ford FACT (UTI only a crappier version of the ASSET program)
So after totaling that up to 46k and that the FACT program is less training than the ASSET I realized hell no and withdrew. The college has Ford ASSET program here, as a two year AA degree for 6k. You get 14 weeks a semester at a dealer 8 weeks in class/lab. Plus summer and breaks working at the dealer as well.
So imo do the Ford ASSET program at a real college, you will be much happier and less in debt.
