Beware of the google reviews of NYADI. Each of the reviewers have 1 review and it's on NYADI and most of the comments has either 4 to 6 likes on each of them. It's highly suspect when these reviews posted by most of these people has only posted 1 review and happens to have 4-6 likes. Don't believe me, look at the google reviews and you'll see a pattern of reviewers with only 1 review and 4-6 likes. It simply doesn't look right. Like I said before, NYADI censored their facebook review page because there were a fair amount of people that were dissatisfied with NYADI. NYADI also censored some of the comments posted here on this review forum. This school will do anything to enroll students just to line their pockets up and that is very wrong. They would go as far as to post reviews here on this forum and possibly on google. Like I said, be careful and do your research when looking for a school to enroll in. posted Apr 27th, 2018 4:01 am

I just came in to check to see whether or not the reviews has been altered and to no surprise it has. At one point there were "testimonies" from Dale Thomas and Cristian , then it was nowhere to be seen and all of a sudden it appears again as for several other post that were originally here. I also realized that several of my post exposing NYADI for deception has been deleted as well as a post from the president of NYADI by the name of Patrick Hart. I've exposed NYADI on this post for censoring reviews so that people get a good impression and that is very wrong. My reviews are posted on this forum if you're interested in reading it. For people reading this, be advised that reviews can be altered on this site in favor of NYADI and it's very important that you do your research on what trade you want to join before enrolling in it. Also, please look at the "testimonies" from Daniel Rodriguez, George Madoff, Mitranand Bipat, and Monica Perry and you notice that those "testimonials" has been posted on September 12, 2017 at almost the exact same time. Clearly someone from NYADI is copying and pasting these testimonials. Be very cautious when reading reviews of NYADI. NYADI used to have a review forum on their Facebook page and later deleted it because they don't want people looking at the reviews to get a bad impression on the school and again that's very wrong on their part. The tuition for NYADI is very expensive so please do your research on the school on whether or not it's worth the time and money. NYADI has a fair amount of people that succeed as well as a fair amount of people dissatisfied. Again please do your research on the school. posted Feb 1st, 2018 11:35 am

Dear Zack,

You must be an current or former employee at NYADI so let me break down what I said earlier. I said either the reviews are fake OR NYADI employees are posting testimonials on this site from other students. It could be actual testomonies, it could be fake testimonies who knows. What do know is that NYADI is censoring negative reviews so that people looking to apply have a good impression of the school and that is very wrong. You guys go out your way to get rid of your review post on your Facebook page and the earlier reviews posted on this site. I have contacted 2 students via social media about their experience at NYADI and they said the same thing that I described earlier on this post that the school has a poor training facility, outdated technology, teachers that don't care, etc. You guys go out your way to get people to come to your school only to give them subpar education and to line your pockets by charging students to enroll in these overpriced programs. Also, I was already aware of NYADI offering an associate degree in automotive and diesel technology. Sure there are people that succeed and end up getting a job after enrolling in NYADI and there are a fair amount of people that have a bad impression of the school. The point is that reviews whether or not they give a school a bad name should never be censored and the public has the right to see both sides to see whether or not their time and money is worth it. That's a fact. posted Sep 29th, 2017 12:58 pm

I am responding to YK. You claim you didn't attend the school but have been keeping a close eye on it? How could you possibly know what goes on there? Did you know that NYADI is now offering an A.O.S. Degree in both Automotive and Diesel Technology? That means- NYADI is a COLLEGE. Also, more importantly, you should be ashamed calling out Dale Lamont Thomas, a STUDENT and a 20 year Decorated ARMY VETERAN OF THE UNITES STATES ARMY. In the current times we are in, We need to respect and revere the Men and Women who have put their lives on the line to uphold Our rights and give Us a Safer and better world to live in. posted Sep 26th, 2017 1:16 pm

The reviews left here are fake. I'm currently enrolled in NYADI sadly. I'm still enrolled only because I set out to finish what I start. No one is happy here and it is a complete waste of money. There are only 3 teachers in this school that know what there talking about. The facility is not state of the art it is however very outdated you can no longer work on your own cars or get any type of help with your own car. The school didn't like the response from its students the day they said we became a college was a very poor decisions on the schools part half the equipment doesn't work at all. They make us put on dog and pony shows for visitors they have coming to the school make us go to shop and act like we're doing something with machines that won't even turn on. The staff doesn't know anything about the school. You spend less time in the shop then the classroom the training equipment they have in the classes does not work. The cars for us to work on have all broken parts nothing is like working in the field. I encourage you to come to the school and see for yourself it's a very unhappy environment they only want money from you and they don't care about anything else. Recently they pushed everyone's graduation date back which is non sense half the teachers don't know anything 3 of them really do know they stuff... and the actually administration staff of the school don't know a single thing about school they're not able to help and unwilling to help in any way. I will say the job department does help students find jobs and mopars are a plus. But most times your going to be sitting in class bored doing nothing at all... there's no real hands on training.. posted Sep 18th, 2017 7:06 pm

My name is Monica Perry and I am a student at New York Automotive and Diesel Institute. I am so proud to be a student at NYADI where I have completed the Certified Truck and Diesel Technician Certificate, Certified Master Truck and Diesel Program and am currently enrolled in the Master Certified Collision Repair Program.  As a veteran and a female mechanic I highly recommend New York ADI. My experience at NYADI has allowed me to meet the most extraordinary people and has opened many doors for me and my future.

When I relocated from L.A. and registered to New York ADI I was welcomed with open arms as if I were to become family and not just a number.  As a veteran transitioning back into the civilian world, NYADI has given me the ideal platform to do so.   The NYADI programs have given me the opportunity to gain additional hands-on training along with specific theoretical and problem solving skills I would need as an up and coming automotive and diesel technician in today market. Instructors dedicate themselves at school to ensure that we are polished and prepared for the workforce, so prepared that I have a desire to return one day to become an Instructor.  I love it here so much that I go thru a 2 hour commute from New Jersey every day to study at New York ADI.  It’s a decision I would make over and over again.  Thank you New York ADI Family. posted Sep 12th, 2017 9:35 am

My Name is Mitranand Bipat, I started the Master Technician Truck and Diesel Program here at New York ADI in 2015 not knowing what to expect after getting out from the Army.  To my surprise the experience so far has been amazing.  The amount of knowledge I have gain from professional instructors, staff and hand-on experience is second to none. My instructors are very knowledgeable in the subjects they are teaching and always take the discussion back to the industry and its application.  Most of all I enjoyed discussion with my instructors and passionate classmates. 

My Classmates at New York ADI were always supportive, challenging and always helpful while in class or during lab sessions.  Now that I am about to graduate looking back at all the knowledge and skills I have acquired, especially with the certifications I will be leaving New York ADI with, like my 39 modules of Mopar CAP Program, I have nothing else but the world of possibilities that awaits me including opening my one repair shop back in my native country Guyana in South America.  I would without a doubt recommend and hope everyone interested in a Diesel Program visit New York Automotive and Diesel Institute. posted Sep 12th, 2017 9:33 am

I graduated from NYADI in August 2016 in the diesel field.

When I attended NYADI I received the skills, knowledge and the support from the instructors and staff which created a tremendous benefit to me.

Before graduation I worked in the diesel field and while I was there I was promoted to shop manager and then offered to buy the business (NDK group Inc.)

I am now very successful in my business and very happy that NYADI gave me the opportunity to pursue my dream. posted Sep 12th, 2017 9:31 am

I Joseph William Mardorf completed the Mopar Cap program through the New York Automotive and Diesel Institute. Susan helped me get the job at Westbury Dodge Chrysler Jeep dealership. I went for my interview and got a call back that I was hired and one week later I began working. I work Fridays, Saturday and Sunday. During the week I continued my education at NYADI, now that I graduated I will start my full time position.

Beware of the reviews posted here on this forum. Most of the reviews from Cristian, dale Thomas, John and others are either fake or copy and pasted testimonals posted by the employees working at NYADI. NYADI school is censoring negative reviews to make sure that people reading the "good" reviews get a good impression, thus encouraging others to apply to NYADI. DON'T DO IT. Though I never enrolled in the school, I've been keeping an eye on NYADI for quite some time hoping to enroll. Unfortunately there has been several reviews about NYADI lack of quality instructors, poor learning environment, and dirty facility. There was once a review section on their Facebook page and there were several negative reviews posted about the same thing I explained earlier. NYADI later removed their review section out of their Facebook page to censor the negative reciews. Also, NYADI seemed to censor the earlier reviews posted on this forum. If you're reading this, please do your research before enrolling in this school. The reason is because NYADI is censoring negative reviews to avoid being seen by the public and that's very wrong on their part. Everyone deserves to find out for themselves on whether or not enrolling would be worth their money and reviews should never be censored regardless. posted Sep 4th, 2017 2:54 am

My name is Dale Lamont Thomas, I am 46 yrs. I retired from the United States Army after 20 years of honorably service. I enrolled at New York Automotive and Diesel (NYADI) in December 2015. NYADI have a professional structured program from the administration staff to the instructors. The instructors here at NYADI, are teaching the need-to-know, for the students to be employment ready once we have successfully completely our selected course of study as required. I have learned a lot of automotive knowledge, safety techniques and how to properly use tools that will last me a lifetime. I have learned things about myself that I can improve on, that will make me a better person for the job that I choose.  Here at NYADI, I have also learn, how to be on time for class and conduct myself like a professional. I have worked on team builder and build an excellent communication skill with my instructors and other students as well. NYADI has been an awesome experience for me to learn how to apply myself and stay focus. Before attending NYADI, I had no automotive knowledge and understanding on how to do things the safe and right way.

This place is a joke. It may seam appealing if you're looking at a short term place that is reasonably priced, DONT LET IT FOUL YOU. I came to see the school for that reason, upon speaking with the admissions rep I made my decision trusting in the picture that was painted by my rep. Most faculty assume that no one knows anything, and constantly disrespect the students. Many many are discouraged and pushed out the door instead of being lead to a water fountain and taught to drink. It's more of a social club rather than a school. If you do decide to attend the facility make sure you are not afraid to ask questions until you get an answer, and stand up for yourself; wether it is an issue with a grade, an issue with a teacher, or a problem with anything. You'll get shut down and made to look stupid instantly. Take it from someone first hand, rather than finding out for yourself. Go to a REAL school, not one that just became part of the education system, dot com to dot edu. posted Sep 21st, 2016 4:35 pm

I have attended this school for 8 month. On a scale of 1 to 10, one being absolute academic disaster to 10 being acceptable learning enviroment, This school ranks a 1. If you can avoid this school by all means do, its a huge rip off i promise you. The disaster ranges from broken down cars that cant even be used for most demonstrations, teachers that are so unintellectual to the point that some of them dont even spell or read correctly, there is a teacher named Rose who litteraly spent 6 weeks where we were supposed to be learning about alignments and suspension doing nothing but wasting our time, he would claim he is going to being back tools while going off doing god knows what in order to pass time while drove in the freezing cold for 20 something miles so we can end up standing around. Most teachers do the same thing because this job is just there retirement job, they only come to make money soing nothing. i promise you, you will lose your money and effort going to this school, at the end they dont even find you a job because most students come out not learning anything and employers have bad experience with the school. posted Jan 22nd, 2016 2:32 am

I already had knowledge on working with cars from prior experience with my car

since I was 16. I'll say that the school polished what I already knew which I do

give them credit for. There are a few instructors that know their stuff hands

down. Mr.T, Mr.Frank,Mr.Machado,Mr.Lebowitz,Mr.Murphy,Mr.D,Mr.Fontanez, and

Mr.Degnan and Mr.Smith.



Hands Down these are the instructor that know their stuff outside of book and

will give you great advice with knowledge with hands on while you are in the

shop.



I'm not complaining but the collision program is a waste of money now that

Mr.Degnan(from what I heard) left the school. The other auto body instructor

doesn't even teach. The director of the school gives Thomas Christ his families

job and Mr.Christ makes his student do some work. But whatever job he does get,

it has NOTHING to do with the segment. Okay, not always but most of the time.

/>


My boy tells me " he tells us what to do and leaves us unattended to only judge

our work when he gets back ". If this is true, that really sucks.



One of his colleagues had to wait 2 months to get his last segment to receive

his certification.



Now that sucks. They can't promise a graduation date for whatever reason they

make you wait.



All the segments are disorganized from when I was there.



If you ever get a chance to go and see the school, you'll probably catch a few

guys and girls cleaning a car or SUV for the director or Mr.Christ himself.

/>


If it's part of the segment, then by all means go ahead and do what you must to

learn and get your hands on.



If it's not, that free labor to the cost of our loans that we will pay for not

learning what we came to learn. Good school though. Thank God I went for my

Master in automotive and not collision.



Rumor is that Degnan left because Christ was over using him for everything. And

if you see a red camaro, christ didn't paint that although he takes all the

credit for it posted Jan 16th, 2014 10:55 pm

The director of the school gives Thomas Christ his families job and Mr.Christ makes his student do some work. But whatever job he does get, it has NOTHING to do with the segment. Okay, not always but most of the time.

My boy tells me " he tells us what to do and leaves us unattended to only judge our work when he gets back ". If this is true, that really sucks.

One of his colleagues had to wait 2 months to get his last segment to receive his certification.

Now that sucks. They can't promise a graduation date for whatever reason they make you wait.

All the segments are disorganized from when I was there.

If you ever get a chance to go and see the school, you'll probably catch a few guys and girls cleaning a car or SUV for the director or Mr.Christ himself.

If it's part of the segment, then by all means go ahead and do what you must to learn and get your hands on.

If it's not, that free labor to the cost of our loans that we will pay for not learning what we came to learn. Good school though. Thank God I went for my Master in automotive and not collision.

Rumor is that Degnan left because Christ was over using him for everything. And if you see a red camaro, christ didn't paint that although he takes all the credit for it.

First off you're not spelling things correctly which automatically makes your opinion less valid. Either way you fix broken cars, not perfect cars. They do run, just not well. I attended school here and it worked out fine for me. The teachers show you things in a way that is more of a real world understanding and to me that makes learning a lot easier. The tools they give you at the end are a good incentive for you to want to graduate and get going in the job market. I don't know exactly what you're talking about but I got a voucher when I got my diploma and picked out the tools I needed. I like that aspect of it because I'm not getting tools I don't need. I checked out other schools before I chose ADI and even though they have more locations than ADI, the shop at ADI is 10 times bigger and better. If you're looking for a school to learn Automotive?Diesel/Collision this is the place to really learn. posted Dec 9th, 2010 3:46 pm

How do students learn if the vehicles that they are working on does not run. I understand that I new student should have the right to work on a vehicle that does not work, but once they reach a certain point a working vehicle is needed to further improve their learning. If this is not done how could this school possibly take students money and tell them that they are going to be ready for job placement upon graduation. Why is the snap-on tools charged to the students account if it's given to them upon graduation. I don't know I think that this is a total rip-off. posted Jul 25th, 2010 9:50 pm
