CTS Canadian Career College Barrie / Con Artists
From day one things seemed off about the school. Previous students spoke of run ins with the program coordinator that would belittle the students. The classrooms used had holes in the walls and the "skills lab" was actually a tiny room with mostly outdated rundown equipment. Anything new was "borrowed" from EMS services by staff who would bring in stolen items so we could actually practice with proper equipment. If you have any issue you are on your own. My original rideout service got changed and I am still currently waiting on a refund of the money paid to York EMS for 450 hours when I only got 98 before being sent to Simcoe instead. Roughly 400 dollars owed. For rideouts they make you pick your top 3 choices then dump you in York even if its not on your list. The so called connections this school claims to have are few and far between. The school managed to lose some paperwork 2 days before my graduation ceremony and if not for my quick work of getting new copies I would have been bumped to the next grad. The school claims to be in the interest of students yet when you deal with them they make it quite clear they are only in it for the money. I ended up doing my clinical sign offs twice because the paperwork wasn't good enough for them and they refused to assist me in tracking down the original nurses who signed it so I could fix it that way. Instead I had to repeat clinical on my own time as well as being in rideouts. This last year has been the year from hell. I did learn one thing. Don't trust a career college. Maybe sometime soon my 30, 000 dollar piece of paper can get me a job but it won't be thanks to these con artists. Do yourself a favour and go to a reputable regular college such as Durham.
And as a p.s. google Mark Solomon Toronto EMS theft. I'm sure you will be interested to read about the person who runs the program and why he is there and not in an EMS service.
