I went to BCTI in 2000-2001. I had perfect attendance, won awards in Keyboarding and 10-Key. I did learn a lot there. However all the big companies I interviewed for gave me computer tests that I could not pass. Why?? Because the information was not covered in class. I was sent out on interviews by the school also. However, I found that I could have gotton a job at a number of these places with out a certificate from a school that most employers laugh at. In fact the job that I did obtain I never used any of the skills I got at BCTI. Except for turning on a computer.
I felt very cheated. I feel as though most of the students there were not serious about being there and there were many times that there we disputes between teachers and students right in the middle of class and not handled very well. A lot of the students I feel didnt even have the aptitude to even be in a classroom setting. There was a gentlman who was even homeless and smelled badly everyday. Im sorry but I have seen this guy on the streets still.
I now have a very well paying job with many great benifits. But guess what I didnt need a degree from BCTI to get it. Out of every single person I have ever talked to that went there they have ALL stated they would not tell a family member or friend to attend there. The staff is not educated enough to teach. I have run into two different instructors from the BCTI I attended and they were not even willing to talk to me about the lawsuit. Gee I wonder why that is. The whole thing is a scam and unfortunately I found out too late.
