What surprised people about this program of study?What surprised people about this program of study?

"That it has a greater variety of subjects than I originally thought. It was also difficult to learn all of those subejects and continue to learn and study just like any other carreer and sometimes more demanding."
"I was surprise how quickly you get place on your own to work on a project or to complete complex tasks. Avaition isn't the only place a A&P can work I have been offered jobs working on windmills and rollercoaster."
"I was surprised I didn't make as much money as I was promised in the beginning. This field of work is not as fun as it seems to be, however."
"This field is so vast, there is so much to learn every day. Its surprising and there is so much to learn."
"Deciding to go to work for the federal government (public sector) I was extremely surprised at the red tape it took to get tools/suppplies to do the job. I thought, it was the federal government, they should be able to get anything and have priority over parts, tools, etc. It took about 2 years to get used to the slower pace of work versus what i was used to."
"What surprised me the most was how much different it was than the classroom. You can learn things but it never prepares you for every situation. I learned more on the job in a few months then I did in the classroom."
"I was surprised by the amount of math that was needed to receive the certificate. I felt like I was prepared thanks to college, however, I would advise others to brush up on their math."
