Default Mobile Dynamics? (school)

Has anyone heard of Mobile Dynamics, it's a car audio school. Web Site :
http://www.mobiledynamics.com/main/enter.html

I've been kinda thinking about getting into the business since most shops around here are shit. I'm wondering if this is a good school or is it a waste of money? I signed up for their brochure and today they called me asking me if I'm interested in attending. Seems kinda interesting.

Thanks,

Ryan

IMO, if your plan is to run a business, you'd be better served by taking a business course. I've known a few people who are damned good installers, could work wonders with fiberglass, did all kinds of work under the table and made some good dough doing it, and when they finally set up a shop it flopped almost immediately.

A few years back I came across a great post in rec.audio.car (usenet) by a guy named Eddie Runner who owns River Oaks Car Stereo about starting a car audio business. There's a lot more to running one than you may think.

I don't think I'd start my own business yet... I'd have to get a partner with money and who is good at making money. Most local shops don't really offer any custom installations, just the basic Circuit City & Best Buy crap. I'm just wondering if anyone knows anything about this particular school. I know installers don't make a whole lot but it's gotta be somewhat better or more rewarding what I do now (I work the front desk of a hotel).

Was that the student's fault or the school's fault? The web page states they have tons of hands on experiance (building kick panels, boxes, etc)... I'm really tempted to go but it's a risk. I don't like to waste money let alone $6000 that might not get me any experiance to make that cash back + a career.

Does anyone know about the Home Audio part of the school? Is that area in demand for installers?
