This "school" offers classes for ABS knife and black smithing courses. You can't register or pay online and it says to print off a form and mail in a tuition check. Nothing about call in and we can register you over the phone making the whole sending in a check thing useless. There are a limited number of students per class and they post if a class is full or open. I sent in my tuition check (you can't pay on line like I wanted to.) after checking to make sure the course was open. I sent in a check in Jan for a course in June. A week AFTER my check was sent I got an e-mail saying someone called in and registered by phone the same day the got my check that was Post marked A WEEK BEFORE THIS PERSON CALLED. I then get an e- mail saying because he called in the same day they gave the last opening to him even though I sent my check in good faith a week earlier.
I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I missed the class before and so I sent in early to be able to escape the Tx 105 degree summer heat to go to this class. They said I could attend the nov. class which was 10 months away.
I don't think I have ever been so upset in my life. I have been a cop for over 16 years and I could not believe they would not honor the fact I sent mine a week earlier and this person calls in and gets the last slot. If I had known I could register by phone I would have. You can't pay on the web but you can call in? Why the hell would you print off the form and send a check? It makes no d**n sense. You could be the first one to send the tuition and if a few call in then your just out of luck
This company has ZERO INTEGRITY! The attitude was like you can try again in nov. even though it is almost a year later! I'm a 260 pound weight lifter and second degree black belt in Kempo and it took every fiber in me not
to take a trip up there for a "meeting".
I would hope at least a few people reading this would stay away from a business that has no more integrity or common sense then this place does.
I have talked to everyone I know to see if I had the wrong opinion and it has been the opinion of every person I talk to that I got screwed and they couldn't believe that they wouldn't honor the post mark to show I in good faith registered first.
