I graduated MMI (marine) in Orlando in 2011. I had perfect attendance and even a few student of course (soc).
We were told that professionalism was important because big name employers stop by the school and observe students, not true. Also MMI claim they had job placement, not true. They also told me i qualified for two $5500 grants. I never saw a dime.
So needless to say i dont work in this industry.
I eneded up getting back into machining only because i had 20 years in that trade prior to the MMI tradgedy. Dont get me wrong there were jobs in the marine industry, I just wouldnt work for $10-$12 an hour.
