Institute Of Technology-Clovis Ripoff A Waste of Time Fresno California
*Consumer Comment: i feel the same way
*UPDATE Employee: More than you know!!!
I don't know about the rest of the courses been taught there but the NST (network systems technicians) course is a joke. It's no standard being taught at this school, all the instructors teach each course different. The teachers are unprepared and too laid back, I had teachers who would waste weeks and weeks trying to install a OS correctly(operating system). I only took a computer apart twice in 8 months.
The only instructor who is willing to make sure each person in the class is learns is Mr. Belk he has a passion for teaching, but I never had him as a instructor, so I didn't learn too much.
I'm so grateful for because I bought the A+ and Networking course from them once I realize that I wasn't going to learn anything from the Institute of Technology and the cd-rom taught me everything I needed to know to be a network systems technician.
The teachers was always complaining about not having enough time to teach us everything, well I learned more from a 20 hour cd-rom than being at the Institute of Technology for 8 months.
You have to pass the schools practice test before you can take the acutal A+ test, the school makes the practice certification test way harder than the actual A+ test, so they don't have to pay for the test voucher.
I'm A+ and Networking+ certified now, and I got all my knowledge from the training cd and I paid for my own vouchers and passed the exams on the first try, so I didn't have to play that little game like alot of people in class who was failing the practice test every week and they never got a chance to take real exam, you voucher is only free while you're in class.
This school is only good for getting the training in writing on your resume, I would have 95% averages and not know nothing!! because you will not learn anything unless they change their teaching standards, I never in my life seen so many people drop out of a college before. Some teachers would just grade you on attendance and you would never take a test in the whole mode (it's like a semester).
Instructors would give you 4 and 5 chapters of homework and not even check it to tell you if it was right, so I started showing them the same homework each time just changing the chapter name and date and they never even looked at it. That's really sad.
My advice just got to the and buy the A+ and Networking+ cd, it's $299.00 and you'll learn much more, instead of spending $9000.00. The only reason I didn't drop out was because my GI BILL was paying for it and it will look good in writing for hiring purposes.
sorry, allowing you to give a competitors name would instigate others to just file against their competition, to only come back later to suggest their company your comments on this policy are welcome!
