yeah, there are local schools and such, but if i want to be "the best" i need to learn from "the best". I have had my mind made up on WyoTech since my freshmen year in high school (yeah like 6-7 years ago) its really not that expensive, i am taking the Collision Repair and Refinishing main course, with every "add on" course available (except business management, my mom went to school for that **** so she will deal with the company $$$ if i get to open my own shop some day). Its only gonna cost me like $30K which seems like a lot for 21 months of school, but i think it'll be worth it! im doin everything on this page- http://www.wyotech.com/Auto-Body-Autobody-Repair-training-program.php
anyways, thanks for the help.
