There was a lot of knowledge that I have learned well I was in this
program.
I feel i had a great learning experience, i just wish we had a little more
time to work on stuff and also if we had more equipment to work with
I enjoyed the getting to know the instructors. All four of them are very
good people, and very good teachers. You can tell that they all care
about the students and teach them to the best of their ability.
the teachers are nice
I liked the small classes and being able to get to know everyone and it
is a very friendly environment
Lots of hands on, time spent in the shop
I thought the program was pretty well spaced out. Of course i think it
would be better if it could of been a little longer because some
sections could definately be extended.
I enjoyed the program and learned alot
It was extremely educational and actually quite fun, a lot of hand on
experience and great instructors
I liked how the program mostly taught students on how to work on
semi trucks. 75% of students will end up working on semis
i thought the program was a good experience
Really good program and proud to be apart of it and experience it.
Had all the lesson to get you out the door and start your career. Need
the equipment to be updated with newer equipment.
I liked the lab portion of the class,it allowed for alot of teacher student
interaction and it enabled me to learn better in my mind than being in
the classroom being lectured.I also enjoyed the diesel related field
trips to the john deere plant along with this upcoming trip to the zigler
catapiller shop these trips allow us to see shops i would have never
had the oppertunity to see if it hadn't have been for these trips-it also
allows the students to get a glimpse of what it looks like out in industry.
I thought that this was a verry good program overall. there was alot of
information crammed in the 2 years we were here. i liked the heavy
equipment part the most becuase i am more interested in the heavy
equipment side. i would like to see this school do more with the heavy
equipment side of the diesel feild in my opinion. i understand that its a
lot of money to fork out.
I liked that the instructors were motivated to teach me and help out
when I asked them. I like the shop and the amount of equipment that
is available for learning.
i like the different amount of vehicles to work on. there are many
styles of equiptment and this course has given me the opportunity to
work on them.
All instructors knowledge about equipment and if they didn't have the
answer they would try to find it in a timely manner.

I think the program should have to have more farm equipment
because some of the tractors that are older would be easier to learn
about since there so easy to tear apart.
more hands on time
for some of the courses it would be nice if the material being taught in
class was what was being done in the shop
Try to get newer equipment to work on.
nothing
Over all I think that this program is a very good and sound program. I
don't have any complaints. Maybe make it a 3 year program so that
some more of the material can be covered more thoroughly like the
heavy equipment, or engines.
we should not have to pay so much for parking passes. because we
only park down there once a week
I would like more hands on time
I wish we had more variety of equipment to work on
I think that this program could be a 3 year program, there is so much
to learn and not enough time to get it all in
I would like it if there was more time accosiated with the program,or if
the student could personalize the program to what they would like to
do after school and when they go on to industry.If the instructors were
around more to answer your questions it would be more helpful (this
comment excludes duane yachawak-he's always been around )and
possibly focus more on what is a commonly worked on in industry so
were ready for whats to come once schools over with.
I would add an additional semester for the advanced engine course to
allow the students more time to apply and reinforce their computer
and engine knowledge which is the most important part of being a
good technition. The extra classes that were not related to the diesel
program could be better used for this perpose.
the shop that is used by the diesel program is very outdated and
"rough". it has surpassed the useful age of the building and should be
considered for a rebuild.
Make it a 3 year course. There is so much more information that could
have either been taught or could have just spent more time on the
things that were already being taught. Lots of new technology that I
felt were not even really touched and old information as well.
I would change nothing, the course was great
i would like to have more one on one time with teachers. the teachers
should be out in the shop more when students are. if the the teacher
needs to leave the shop. jhe should let students know where hes
going. i spent many hours looking for teachers thinking they disapered
off the face of the world

maybe lengthen the program if at all possible. the amount of
information given was alot in a short amount of time in the electrical
we were given. there are other parts that dont need as much time but
i know that this program has been going for a while and it just works.
but i would like to see more time in a few of the longer and tougher
coarses.
more one on one time with instructor and student in the shop teaching
Needs more equiptment to work on.

i was good at communication at the beginning of college. so it might
have helped me with my wrighting. im sure it helped people that are
shyer
It was an okay class
it was good
all the time
very good
Yes they do
the communication skills were fairly decent. we as students all have
different ways of learning and its the harderst part for a teacher to
adapt to all of that. there were a couple of instincts where i got
frustrated but i have learned i just need to speak up over it and things
will get better.
??? No idea what you mean ???
I think i have good cummunication skills.
we had classes about communication and did plenty of verbal
comunication which in my opinion helped me alot
The communication was very good in all areas.

Came to myself very easy!
very good. i was very impressed with todd shaw!!!!!!! very great
teacher. wish i had him all 2 years so i didnt forget my mathematics
Nice to learn for electronical
we applied the math we learned but there was not a large amount of
math dealt with throughout the program which was perfectly fine
The teacher was somewhat of an air head with some of the students.
Math concepts were applied well in the areas of necessity.

The math teacher we had was rather agrivateing to us.
yes
i thought the course was good
yes and the teacher help you gett better in the weak areas
Strengths are that the teachers are great and good stuff to work on
yes
the strengths would be the intructors we have the truck part of it we
have younger teachers who are fresh out of the feild and that is great
because of the fact they know what goes on out there. the heavy
equipment side requires somebody with alot of experience which
there is. maybe lengthen the program as a weakness
My strengths after coming out of this program would pry be
transmissions and my weakness would probably be electrical!
