The Bad

  • Day hours
  • Time commitment
  • Automotive-specific

Day Hours

One potential downside to Newgate School is that school hours are between 8:00 a.m. and 2:45 p.m., Monday through Friday. For interested students who need to financially support themselves, you will need to find late afternoon and evening jobs to work with your school schedule. Evening or weekend classes are not available nor are other flexibility accommodations.

Time Commitment

If you are looking for a quick certification program, then this isn't what you're looking for. Newgate's automotive programs require 12 to 18 months of training. The auto mechanics training emphasis is a 12 month program which prepares graduates to work as general service technicians. The auto body training program lasts about 18 months and focuses detailing, auto body, refinishing, framing, and safety procedures. The time commitment ensures that you are able to achieve the necessary certifications in order to be recommended for successful job placement.

Automotive-Specific

Newgate School focuses specifically on auto body and auto mechanics. It isn't a typical trade or technical school that provides numerous program offerings, as automotive vehicles are the specialty. Degree options also aren't available as that isn't the mission of the School. If you are interested in a school with options beyond the automotive industry and potential degree options, then it is recommended to look elsewhere.

The Bottom Line

If you are located in the Twin Cities in Minnesota and are interested in auto body or auto mechanics training, then Newgate School is worth looking into. Newgate focuses specifically on helping low-income adults find success in the automotive industry. Tuition is free and classes run weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Language skills aren't necessary as the majority of the curriculum is learned through hands-on experience. Newgate School also makes the learning experience easy and individualized through low student to teach ratios. There is a time commitment involved as programs run from 12 to 18 months in length.
