SEO Reputation Management at its best!

The Kisimmee campus is very unprofessional. The employees are trained and told to keep the students long enough to drain them out of their financial aid. The students are not told that the credits at this school will not transfer to a state school. The students are not provided with the correct training because most of the instructors do not have the proper credentials to teach. There are some instructors who are only certified in other countries and states. This company also poorly trains their employees and some are not trained at all its learn as you go, so nobody really knows what they are doing.

There are students in the HVAC (heating and AC) program who have zero hands on training but are allowed to graduate. Some of the students are given the wrong tools and go on interviews and cant get jobs because they have no hands on training and dont know what they are doing. With no experience and no hands on these students could kill or electricute themselves and blow somebody's house or business up. This campus is also charging students money they dont owe. Students are told when they graduate that there is no balance but then months after they graduate they suddenly receive letters for thousands of dollars that they owe to the school all of a sudden.

This school is also very racist and only caters to hispanics. A majority of the students speak spanish in class and the teachers speak spanish in class leaving the English speaking students feeling left out. The spanish culture is pushed on you and they continuously have spanish festivals parties and events playing spanish music. Alot of the staff and students you can hardly understand because they can barely speak English. This student hires criminals as staff. There is a guy named Jason A Casanas that was an admissions rep he was arrested for selling opium(heroin) and was spotted by a student that was in jail with him the same weekend.

He was fired after that but he has a rap sheet. Look him up on mugshots.com if you cannot see this link http://mugshots.com/US-Counties/Florida/Osceola-County-FL/Jason-Amado-Casanas.57902399/details/. The teachers there are fraternizing with the students and "sleeping with students" Just recently they fired 4-5 Chef's that were instructors one by the name of Sotomayor and several more for sleeping with students  so they just got fired and again this was swept under the rug. They had a lady named Angelina that was fired because she charged 14 thousand dollars to the school and she was verbally abusing students.

They were also making the students be part of a WIA (workforce program) which is a government program. They were forcing students to be in this program and dragging students out of class and falsifying documents for the students so they could try to get free money from the government but the problem was that the students didnt want to participate because they were missing class and their education was being harmed. The students fight in classrooms and the cops stay at this school. This is a very dangerous school and the location is in a mall. One student got beaten by a gang and everybody saw his face and staff even asked him what happened but suddenly he disappeared from classes!

This is gang territory. They even had a shoot out in their parking lot behind the building where people had to be airlifted.. Check the Kissimee police reports! There is minimal lighting behind the building so at night students and staff are walking in an unsafe enviroment. They only have security in the back of the school so if someone walks through the front door and wanted to harm students or staff they could very easily. Some students are told they have to pay to sit in class and if they dont they cant go to class and others are allowed to never pay if they go to the deans and cry they are allowed back in school.

There are students that graduated without ever paying a dime.  This school targets poor students, disabled students, military and minorities because they usually can get financial aid or have scholarships and grants provided by the government. Yet they provide a poor education for the students and take poor people and put them in further poverty by sticking them with a ton of debt that nobody can explain. There is not entrance exam no background checks NOTHING so they let anybody in this school. There are gangbangers and criminals and drop outs who attend this school so BEWARE!

If you leave your bag or purse, phone or IPad and come back it will be stolen. Staff even has to lock up their things. They took forever to get us our tax forms and never update addresses. They will pretend to change your phone number and address then all of a sudden they have the wrong address. One staff member doesnt know what the other staff member is doing because there is zero communication so again nobody knows what is going on. The staff is unprofessional and they wear clothes that are too short and too tight and wear stripper club heels TO WORK. I have never seen pants and skirts and shirts so tight on staff members!

Its like they are running a brothel instead of a school. The schools director Gabriel Garces has no clue what he is doing and he really does nothing for students. He has students with balances working around the school with NO PAY but off the record to pay down their balances. Who does that? Isnt that illegal? There is so much wrong with this school just watch one day they will be on the news with all of this I am telling you. Do yourself a favor and go to a state community college especially if you plan on transferring to get a higher education or want a real education these people are bogus. They change staff like they change underwear so buyer beware.

If you enroll and even sit in class a few days you will be charged THOUSANDS of dollars and they will not remove that balance you will be stuck with it and they will send it to collections. I have have seen the scamming and dealt with this school. Oh and by the way the guy on here that will do a rebuttal on anything you say about this school is a hire up that works for this school. He will defend anything that is said about the school and call it all lies and try to get you to talk to him DONT TALK TO THAT GUY! He is trying to trick you. So good luck to anyone who is foolish enough to be scammed by the people or even consider signing up.. You will end up in debt and in tears!

#1 UPDATE Employee

Were you a terminated employee?

AUTHOR: David Ruggieri - ()

 It seems to me that from the contents of this, you were not a student at FTC, but possibly a terminated employee. If that is the case than you know why we made that decision. So condeming the remaining staff, faculty, and students, is a bit immature on your part.

To those who may read this - I say this - visit the school, meet the students, meet the staff, meet the faculty, make up your own mind about what FTC represents.

We actually have very little turnover of faculty and staff - only those we generally let go - for reason.

I don't need to defend Kissimmee - go visit and make up your own mind.

And to the writer - your facts are wrong. But, since you go nameless, it's hard to address with you.

To a reader - call me at 407 447 7300 if you have any questions - I will be happy to talk to you personally.

I am sorry for people like this, but it's a free country

David Ruggieri
