Top Management Failed This Company, Employees, and Students

AUTHOR: The one who walks through walls - (United States of America)

Hello,

I guess I should chime in here. The problem with the now defunct computertraining.edu business model was that the schools in my opinion were not standardized. The training I got at Annapolis Junction MD was great, I had a great instructor, and the staff was excellent. However this was not the case at other schools. The issues behind the scenes of the school were because of the Top Management and their paradigm of excess.  Now that the school is destroyed by that paradigm, I hope that this serves as a lesson to American companies. When you start devaluing your employees and  customers, thinking that by firing people you are making a profit, and paying no attention to the quality of your product, you are not helping the country rather you are hurting it, but I guess what a well know traitor once said was true, Patriotism is only practiced when you are in power, Freedom is only useful when used to disguise the lack of equality, and the ones who often yell the words of Patriotism and Freedom loudest are the ones who dine on the carcasses of the true believer, may America pay for her hypocrisy piece by bloody piece. This is applicable in this case because companies are acting as traitors to this country and are the ones who dine on the carcasses of the true believer, yet speak of loving this country and what it stands for.

The Real Truth

AUTHOR: Ex-Employee Hunt Valley - (United States of America)

On Christmas Eve, ComputerTraining.edu is shut down by BB&T bank and forced to close all schools and corporate offices with no forewarning or notice to students, creditors, employees, management or shareholders.

After seventeen years in business, on Christmas Eve December 24th, 2009 ComputerTraining.edu was sent an email notifying them that their primary financier, BB&T bank, had frozen their line of credit, bank accounts and was seizing all assets immediately.  They also instructed Computertraining.edu to lock down all locations and not allow employees access to collect personal belongings.  This request stunned the ComputerTraining.edu management team who refused to comply.  All employees were allowed access and terminations were made face to face.

Regardless of the fact that there were sufficient funds to do so, BB&T decided not to pay ComputerTraining.edu employees or keep training centers open to allow enrolled students to complete their schooling. Several attempts have been made by ComputerTraining.edu management to remedy the situation without success.  

ComputerTraining.edu is a Nationally Accredited Institution and has placed thousands of graduates into IT careers over the years. Graduation and placement rates were among the highest in the industry. Current students should contact their states board of education as soon as possible to work through refunds and remedies.  ComputerTraining.edu has posted surety bonds and restricted cash deposits with the states which will be used to help students transfer to another school or obtain refunds. 

ComputerTraining.edu is working together with Sallie Mae and all State Agencies to ensure that BB&T does the right thing and teaches out the classes and/or guarantees all refunds. Students have lost their education, employees have lost their jobs and shareholders have been bankrupted. None of this was necessary and could have been avoided had BB&T taught out the classes the way that management recommended and had done in the past.
