WyoTech Boston lied to me at enrollment about the medical certification for doing the job that they were going to train me to do and never ever took the time to explain to me that the job required a medical certification that would need to be passed in order to work in the field they were training me for.

I am a diabetic and when I enrolled the fist question I asked the enrollment consuler was would I be able to do the job with the disease I had and was told It would not be a problem.

I again asked the instructor in the first phase if It would not be a problem and he said it wouldn't be a problem.

I graduated with honors and took 3 of 4 tests before
I found out from the faa website that they lied to me about the medical certifiaction for the job and never put the info into the ciriculum. I only found it because I was getting ready for the last test and was searching the website.

If anyone reads this and you go to that school and you have any medical disabilties your being riped off you will not be able to get a job doing what your being trained for check the faa website as far as what the medical certification conditions exist. the school will not inform you about this information.

In the state of massachusettes it is against the law to lie to potential students to get them to enroll in there business.

It was not a misunderstanding

AUTHOR: Glen - (U.S.A.)

I specificly asked a question regarding my medical condition and there response was it would be ok and I shouldn't worry about it.
it is not a matter of he said she said it's a matter of being lied to in order for them to make a business contract. legaly it is not binding for them to lie in order to make the contract valid. I would never of signed the contract if I knew the truth and as soon as I found out the truth I stoped all my dealings with them. I will not quit on this because it is wrong, wrong, wrong, what they did.

Successfully suing schools is rarely done

AUTHOR: Juliet - (U.S.A.)

Successfully suing schools doesn't seem to happen a whole lot, on an individual basis, or in class actions.

From the sounds of this particular complaint, it seems to be a "he said/she said" situation, which would really make it hard to prove. Unless you have an audio recording of them stating that the FAA doesn't exclude people with your specific medical conditions, all the person has to do is say "I misunderstood". Misunderstanding isn't a basis for suing, as far as I've ever heard.

Even if you were able to launch a class action suit, the lawyers are the ones who make the money. When settlements are done, I don't recall the litigants being "made whole" for their losses. It always seems to be pennies on the dollar once the fine is spread out among all the litigants. The lawyers get the vast majority of the money.

I'm so sorry for your loss of time and energy, it is so unfair when schools set students up to fail. It breaks the bank as well as dreams, and that is so unconscionable it's beyond sickening.

Just letting go of the situation is SUCH a lame offering of assistance, but it could be the best thing, emotionally. Eventually, all consumers have to resign themselves to being unable to fight corporate America, in general, as they cover their hides so doggone well.

Wyotech bad business practices

AUTHOR: Glen - (U.S.A.)

Yes Wyotech outright lied and I have witnesses
the subject was brought up on more than one occassion and there response was the same.
you can not go to a school like that and have to take insulin injections and not have anyone notice it and the kept saying it was not a problem so they did outright lie at admissions and throughout the time I was there.
In court they will loose just ask the faa what the deal is they know about it also. it's a loose loose situation for everyone involved.

No They outright lied at admission

AUTHOR: Glen - (U.S.A.)

I asked the question at admission and they outright lied to me about it. I asked the question again and they outright lied again about it. If they wanted to be clear about it all they had to do was to ask the faa for clairification and they did not do it which also makes them negligent.

I Don't Know About You But...

AUTHOR: Cory - (U.S.A.)

I think I would have checked, or gotten the exam before taking the classes. The school has nothing to do with getting an FAA med cert. That's up to the doctor who gives the exam to determine if you pass or not. It probably depends on the type of diabetic you are and if it is controlled or not. They should have told you though that one was needed. The vast majority of the students never get to that point anyway. Also very few students ever get a job in the flying field. There are too many ex-military folks out there with thousands of hours under their belts. It sounds like they didn't lie to you, they just didn't tell you the whole story which is a whole different tune in court. Been there, done that.
