Fremont, CA Campus of the WyoTech Trade School
WyoTech is a trade school. It generally focused only on automotive technology when established in Laramie, Wyoming in 1966. During that time until now, though, the school has continued to expand, opening new locations and adding electrician courses and other types of job-based training programs.
The Fremont, California Sequoia Institute has now been transformed into a WyoTech campus. This particular campus has specialized programs in both automotive disciplines and other construction and maintenance specialties.
As of February 2011, Fremont students seeking to train for a new career can choose from the following WyoTech training programs: Applied Automotive Technology, HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning), Electrician, Motorcycle Technology and Plumbing.
Many people are strapped for cash these days and simply do not have the money to attend a technical school or college. In that case, students may file applications for financial aid to attend the WyoTech Fremont campus. Just use the contact information that follows to ask about applying for financial aid:
200 Whitney Place
Fremont, CA 94539
As far as housing, you will need to contact the Fremont staff. Of course, housing is relatively expensive in California, so you want to have some idea of your budget (including a decision on your financial aid) before you commit to any kind of long-term rental agreement.
The Fremont campus of WyoTech is also accredited. The body that provides accreditation is the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges.
Note: The WyoTech Motorcycle Technology programs typically have special concentrations, but not all locations provide all concentrations. In the case of Fremont, the following concentrations are taught: European Concentration, Asian Concentration and Harley-Davidson Concentration.
The Applied Automotive Technology program is one of the big draws of the WyoTech Fremont location. It is the only campus that offers this advanced automotive technician program, as of February 2011.
Most tradespeople involved in California construction need a state license. To pass this license, applicants need to pass a license exam. The HVAC and electrician courses could be very beneficial to those who wish to operate as independent contractors in the state of California. Experience requirements also apply.
