Has anyone here been through MMI or know someone who has?  I have been on the website and also spoke with Lisa at admissions but I would like to hear some first hand accounts of what the training is like.  If anyone has any information I would love to hear it.  I would be uprooting my family and starting from scratch in a new state.  If the school is not what it seems I would rather not take the chance.  Thanks.

I would give it some serious thought not because of the school but the boating industry as a whole has taken a major nose dive in the last decade, there used to be several manufactures in the area , Wel Craft, Chris craft, donzi, and a few other smaller ones, now gone or consolidated into one brand. The only thing keeping the once admired Innovation marine engines in business is a .gov contract for the navy. I'm not sure if you could make a decent living while and the whole pain of a start up business ect... Look at a different career.

It advertises on TV, so there's an indication of quality.

There's also more marine mechanics out there than the market can support with the current economic situation. You'd do better going into automotive and getting ASE certified.

A key things to look at when looking at MMI or any other school like it is that they are "for-profit" unlike most educational institutions throughout our nation.

Thanks for the feedback.  I was hoping it would be the opposite as that looks like a fun profession.

Graduated from there in 2001. Like any schooling you're only going to get out of it what you put in. Economy did hurt the industry, but there are well paying jobs out there. Let me know if you want to anything else.
