Fear not; they are always under the guidance of senior faculty with many years of experience. Things will go fine. The program has a long-standing history of great work at the college and a history of graduating quality ASE certified mechanics to the local workforce. The results will most certainly be better than one untrained, minimally experienced, shade-tree mechanic (me) working on the car here and there.
I'm not at all happy with this, you may be but I have seen just how bad ASE certified mechanics are. Half of them I know never even heard of a carburetor or how to rebuild one, the other half don't even know what a Fiero is.
And I have been around a lot of mechanics over my 59 years from everything to shade tree to factory ones. I worked at GM from 73 to 90 at CPC Framingham, MA as everything from a line worker to repair my last 5 years there.
We are here to help YOU, WE are not there to help them, please give them a link to the forum in case they have questions, PLEASE.
We have a lot more knowledge than some instructor because,
There are more of us,
many of us have had ours for decades,
most of us do our own work and know the little problems that can come up when working on a 25+ year old car,
Could you at least ask if you can put a webcam on your car so we can watch just what they are doing? For your own peace of mind as well as the rest of us.
I really hope one of those so called instructors has at least worked on a few Fieros or owned one.
Good Luck, You are going to need it.
Technology is great when it works,
and one big pain in the ass when it doesn't
Detroit iron rules all the rest are just toys.
