I am a 2006 grad of M-Tec.
Now this is a very vague memory, but I seem to remember having a hard time at first getting my assignments to my instructor. I can't remember exactly what the problem was, but I was doing something wrong.
I've heard some of the folks talk about the instructor not being "a good fit." That may be the case with you and you could ask for another instructor.
I would recommend this school over and above any other school. Of course, I'm not familiar with many of the others. It is a challenge, but in the long run, it is worth it. I totally love working at home. My traffic jam in the morning is a 3-cat pile up in the hallway on the way back to my office! LOL!
If you have any questions or anything that I could help you with, please feel free to send me a PM.
