Porter and chester is the most over priced, waste of time i have ever been involved in. The building is kept in poor unclean conditions, the equipment is mostly missing, broken, and hidden by instructors that don't want to hear the noise (chris burgess). There is a SEVERE lack of safety equipment. I have gotten burned, cut, gotten rashed, etc because we arent issued long sleeves, dont have welding sleeves or cover-alls etc. NONE of my uniforms...

I graduated on October 2015 and my experience went far beyond my initial expectations. Individual experience and outcome is different from person to person, I met guys who got in the program just to find out whether or not was the "fit" choice, big mistake... Instructors were awesome, knowledgeable, experienced, guided and challenged us every day. Labs were useful, don't expect to tackle every possible scenario, field experience would do it......

I have read most of the reviews and can tell that most of the people who are writing reviews probably failed or are unhappy due to their own decisions. I realize that most people going to PC have trouble reading or writing and just general adjustment to society and are dumb enough to fall for this scam. I don't claim to be the smartest person, but once they talk to you on the phone and then call you multiple times telling you the classes are... Read more

Currently an HVAC student at porter and Chester. I have be going for about a month now and already regret coming to this school. When you go for a tour they bring you to the labs you will be working in and it looks really nice. Seems like there is a lot of equipment to learn on. But most machines are there just for show. Only a few you can actually work on. You find your self in the back watching the other students. I have a brand new teacher... Read more

I recently graduated from porter and Chester. I agree school was overpriced. I did Dental Assistant program. The externships were just to complete hours not to learn how to use your skills in a dental office. I got no support and just grief. I was bullied by other dental assistants but never said anything cause I would not have got support. They set up and tell you you made mistakes but you didn't and they want to teach you thinks and second... Read more

Instructors were well educated. 13 days of my graduation , I got a job at newengland's Highest volume dealership . I have been in my job since then . The only problem i have is , the cost of education is little high . Income and Job provability wise, I would assume i am on top 20 graduates , but still the loan balance is not blowing off as expected... Read more

Currently enrolled in the CNT program it's a night mare they forced us to take the A+ cert a days before it changed they knew it was changing but didn't think it was a good thing to change it to the newer one more than half of the students failed one part of the test and now we have no way of getting our A+ unless we set ourself up to fail

I had the worst experience at Porter and Chester. I was all set signed up for the July medical program then I called randomly to check in with my advisor , he then told me that they filled my seat! They are the worst school most unorganized unreliable "school" in the city of Worcester.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS *** SCHOOL "THE BEST SCAME ARTIST" im in the electrical field, the state requires for me to do 600 hour for test but porter and scamsters will make you do 1284 hours thats double of the hours. Why they do this so you can stay longer and pay more. Go to petersons or any other school that provides electrical or any other trades. Also to include this school charges 28,000$ for 18 months of attendance. STAY AWAY DONT BE A VICTIM... Read more
