online motorcycle mechanic school

Does anyone know anything about the online motorcycle repair technician program at Penn Foster. I was wondering if its worth the 600 bucks. I have a job, I just want to work on my own bikes and maybe do this part time.

when i took msf again a few months back there was a guy who was doing it. He said it was cool and you learned a lot. The only downfall i see to it is that you don't get the hands on training that you get from a tech school...

Ya man, I am looking to do the same thing. I don't want to quit my regular job but I want to be able to work more on my own bike and maybe do stuff for other people on the side. I just don't think I'd get much out of an on-line course for this type of thing. I'm going to try to find a way I can get some hands on training.

i took one do it. it was great. BUT make sure you have something to work on or a job doing it because when you read the book and etc. it goes great hand in hand with you hands on training.
