im thinking about going to school at the Nashville Auto Diesel College. im almost done with a 2 year welding degree program, but since ive gotten into the diesels alot, ive been thinking about becoming a mechanic. always liked mechanic type stuff and my dad was actually a diesel mechanic back in the 70s, so i was just wondering if anyone has been to the school or heard anything bad or good about NADC. are any of you guys graduates of the diesel program? or are you a diesel mech that works with one? any info is appreciated.

I have given it alot of thought and am still considering it. from what i remember it is fairly pricey but well worth it. there are a couple of guys that i know that are my age if not younger (im 21) and they just graduated last year and have their own diesel performance shop here in kentucky. plus nashville is a kick arse city so it would definately be worth it in my opinion, and im thinking they have a decent job placement program also.

i called and talked to the admissions guy and he told me that it was 22-32 grand for the diesel program. im gonna have to call them again and get a little more info. im really leaning towards doing it. nashville would be awesome, the capital of country music is my kind of place! when i talked to the guy on the phone he said they are always having companies call them for ppl to hire. gonna have to kick it around some more.

Hey, i think it's a good idea. You can pay for it with your welding jobs. Try to work some overtime paying jobs, like a power plant shutdown or a refinery shutdown. Lot of money in a short time, then back to school!!! Then when you have your training in Diesel Mechanics, you can work for the same companys. If your good you can work all over the world. Do it while your young, don't regret not doing it, later in life it maybe to late.
