As a recent 2005 graduate of the Institute of Technology, I must say that this is the most disappointing school I've ever attended.

I don't know about the rest of the courses been taught there but the NST (network systems technicians) course is a joke. It's no standard being taught at this school, all the instructors teach each course different. The teachers are unprepared and too laid back, I had teachers who would waste weeks and weeks trying to install a OS correctly(operating system). I only took a computer apart twice in 8 months.

The only instructor who is willing to make sure each person in the class is learns is Mr. Belk he has a passion for teaching, but I never had him as a instructor, so I didn't learn too much.

I'm so grateful for because I bought the A+ and Networking course from them once I realize that I wasn't going to learn anything from the Institute of Technology and the cd-rom taught me everything I needed to know to be a network systems technician.

The teachers was always complaining about not having enough time to teach us everything, well I learned more from a 20 hour cd-rom than being at the Institute of Technology for 8 months.

You have to pass the schools practice test before you can take the acutal A+ test, the school makes the practice certification test way harder than the actual A+ test, so they don't have to pay for the test voucher.

I'm A+ and Networking+ certified now, and I got all my knowledge from the training cd and I paid for my own vouchers and passed the exams on the first try, so I didn't have to play that little game like alot of people in class who was failing the practice test every week and they never got a chance to take real exam, you voucher is only free while you're in class.

This school is only good for getting the training in writing on your resume, I would have 95% averages and not know nothing!! because you will not learn anything unless they change their teaching standards, I never in my life seen so many people drop out of a college before. Some teachers would just grade you on attendance and you would never take a test in the whole mode (it's like a semester).

Instructors would give you 4 and 5 chapters of homework and not even check it to tell you if it was right, so I started showing them the same homework each time just changing the chapter name and date and they never even looked at it. That's really sad.

My advice just got to the and buy the A+ and Networking+ cd, it's $299.00 and you'll learn much more, instead of spending $9000.00. The only reason I didn't drop out was because my GI BILL was paying for it and it will look good in writing for hiring purposes.

#2 UPDATE Employee

More than you know!!!

AUTHOR: I.t. Employee - (U.S.A.)

Since being acquired by the Bright Star Education Group (A.K.A. Arlington Capital Partners), any education at Institute of Technology has become merely a byproduct of profits. Driven by Jim Hega and his puppet Todd Lardnoit out of Denver Colorado the quest for cash at Institute of Technology has taken educational rip-off to a new level. Here are few of the atrocities brought on by Hega's mission for higher profits. Photocopies are given to students instead of text-books. Instructors are directed to pass failing students in order to make room for new ones. Tuition money earmarked for student certification is strangely absorbed into the profits. Admission representatives, due to incentives, will do/say anything to enroll a person as long as they are eligible for funding and have a pulse. The list goes on and on.

When unable or more likely unwilling to deliver on the promises made by the Admissions Representatives employees were told to quiet any student complaints. Case in point culinary students were promised externships in exotic places like France, Napa Valley and New York when these sites never existed. When these students were ready to graduate and started asking questions about the sites employees were directed to tell them that their grades were not good enough for those sites and they would have to settle for a local site like a school cafeteria.

At this point you are probably asking, how can they get away with all this? Isn't that illegal? Well it is illegal but thanks to the politician investors of Arlington Capitol Partners there is no longer a governing body (B.P.P.V.E.) to oversee things like this. Now you are probably asking, well why a person doesn't just get a lawyer. But like O.J. if you can afford a good enough lawyer you can get away with murder and Bright Star Education group has one of the largest legal firms in California on retainer for just such things. Any local lawyer will tell you there is just no since trying to take them to court.

If you choose Institute of Technology to further your education, chances are it will only lighten you wallet.
