  • Dale Lamont Thomas - 2016

    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. NYADI you have taught me that "Tomorrow is promise to those who prepares themselves today!"

  • Mitranand Bipat - 2016

    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.

  • Monica Perry - 2016
    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.
