"As you can probably discern, I’m a big proponent of apprenticeships and not so enthusiastic about the repair schools. I was trained in an apprenticeship but I’ve visited a repair school and have met techs trained in repair schools. In my experience, the apprenticeship is the way to go if you can find one." So you wanna be a repair tech I'm on the fence about the decision to go to school vs. OJT. But then, I'm sooo not a repair tech type; I don't have the patience to do that kind of work.
