I took a course there . It was Network & Internet Security Specialist . The cost of this course was around $16, 000 . There is no class there, only they gave me a computer and I had to study by myself and when I had a question, usually It took a long time to get answer . I just passed the exams and didn't learn much . I have lost my money and time as well . I strongly beleive that, EVEREST COLLEGE IS ONE OF THE WORST COLLEGES IN CANADA.

    Some lessons Ive learned after having been screwed by a "business/career/trade" college.
    1)If the school is Private, stay away from it
    2)If the school is for-profit, stay away from it
    3)If the school offers people the ability to finish a course offered at a public college or university in less that half the time it normally takes, stay away from it
    4)Do the credits transfer to other PUBLIC colleges and Provincially funded universities? if not, stay away from it
    5)are there multiple posts about the institution on educational forums and on the internet in general that are negative in nature, if so, stay away from it
    6)Does the school offer job placement assistance, guaranteed high paying jobs after graduation, scouts/employers from companies that come to the school to look for grads, a 70-90% graduate employment rate and a whole bunch of other really over-the-top gurantees?!, if so, stay away from it
    7)Does the school have multiple "campuses" spread out all over the country?if so, stay away from it
    8)Is the school on the third floor of a scummy building? if so, stay away from it
    9)Does the school seem to change names every couple of years? If so, stay away from it
    10)Does the school go through a constant change of instructors and management? If so, stay away from it
    11)Does the school employ ex-grads as teachers?, if so, stay away from it
    12)DO they advertise on tv, have a 1-800 number and do they have glossy print ads? If so, stay away from it
    -If I wouldve had a list similar to this before I enrolled in that institution, I wouldve thought twice about making said decision

    Just because a business calls itself a "university" does not mean it is a UNIVERSITY
    Bottom line:DO YOUR RESEARCH!!

    @ mohsen:
    i feel sorry for you man. Maybe you just got the wrong teacher, lol. I'm studying at Everest College-SCarborugh, Network Security Specialists Course. We always have 2 hour classes every day mostly focus on Cisco for CCNA exam, sometimes some even complain that we are being taught more advanced than what is really covered in our courses. If there are questions with regards to the lessons, the teacher will answer it ASAP even sometimes when he's having a lunch or coffee break.

    Most of the people i know already landed a job even before they finished so why don't you come and visit sometime and talk to our instructor.
