Turn Pro at WyoTech
April 1, 2020
To Our WyoTech Family,
We hope this finds you well. During these unpredictable and unprecedented times, we’re doing our best to weigh common sense while protecting the well-being of our students and employees, which is always our top priority.
Currently, the State of Wyoming has put social distancing restrictions in place until April 17, per our Governor’s order. Prior to that order being issued, we had planned to start class on April 6. That would run contrary to the restrictions in place, so we were faced with having to either modify our delivery model (i.e. move to online classes) or modify our schedule to mesh with the directives from the Wyoming Department of Health. The leadership at the school feels that moving to online delivery is not in the best interest of our students. We are a proud hands-on school that trains professionals for a hands-on industry. While online learning can be used effectively for theory, it is not a reasonable substitute for hands-on shop time. We feel like converting to an online model for the short term would be a disservice to our students and the employers that hire our graduates.
To that end, we have decided to delay our start date until May 11, 2020. We will have registration on May 8, 2020. It could be that our restrictions subside prior to that date, but we feel strongly that we need to get our returning students and their families some dates to plan around.
We look forward to seeing you all here at WyoTech once this has passed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you from a scheduling standpoint. We just believe wholeheartedly in our brand and what we do, we want to make sure you receive the best training possible and believe delaying for six weeks and being true to our hands-on model is the best way to accomplish this.
Please do not hesitate to call our campus, we have people committed to addressing your concerns.
