Technical Training / Cost-Lies about Product
I am a former Instructor of MyComputerCareer.com This company is a Certification Mill!
I believe that the PROPER QUALIFIED person WITH EXPERIENCE, can go through a program like this and succeed. I've watched them do it.
What they don't tell you is that out the 20+ persons who start a class, only 3-4 will usually get a job! I've lived it through many of MYCC classes - I've helped to teach. They will not even do you the honor of a graduation program. Your done - Good-by!
I worked with MYCC, I know the Owners "Tony and Richard Galati", "Bill Salada" .
Most of the staff are the Galati Family.
Like many companies they oversell, overcharge, and under deliver. They are focused on sales and not on giving every student the best possible product. They have few scruples and will sell to anyone they can whether qualified or not! They are into defending and justification not reality. They make 1.5 mill per year per training center and get commissions of apx $1000 per student per owner.
Although I know that some of the staff do their best to do what they can. They have sold themselves into believing what they sell. Overall they are working a lie. The marketing misrepresents the market and the job opportunities available and the requirements to qualify. The jobs go to those who have, or can represent some type of experience.
I have seen Kevin help a student take the pre-exam and then have the student get a invalid Grandmother pay for the student loan that the student had no ability to succeed with because of IQ.
-I've seen them miss-represent what they deliver again and again.
-They lie about the job opportunities.
-They lie to your face about the Cost Comparison or twist it so that they hold themselves up against the most expense colleges and universities - or programs.
-They will tell you that their instructors can deliver so much more than possible with ratios of so many students to 1.
-They then use "VERY close to exam" practice tests to assist in getting certified!
-The "Hands-On" is C***. You have NO TIME to get real. The further you get into the courses, the less time they give you for hands-on and the more all you do is memorize test questions..
I warn you that you will feel so overwhelmed, EXTORDED, and in the end, it will still be up to you to find the job, competing against those who have some experience for low pay work.
If the instructor likes you and you have any levels of skill - you may succeed passing exams(Memorizing the Test Questions) but unless you already have some IT background or IT aptitude this program is NOT for you. It comes at you way to fast. OTHERWISE "??" will call you a "Doorknob or a dumbbell" give you the brush off and good luck! It is such a tough world out there. Such a far different attitude then when they are trying to coax you out of your ca$h.
You have to be prepared to do nothing but study for months and then Gamble the $$$$ against a promise that you MAY get a job in this economy.
Sooner or later, they will have blood on their hands. I've seen students go Postal!!!
Hundreds of persons who would love to sue but MYCC has excelled in building a legal defense with cameras, policy you sign into contracts, and instructors that report about attendance, performance about keeping up your studies, participation and so-on. If you are off course of their next to impossible plan, then you have no legal recourse.
Do yourself a favor and go to the local community college for a IT degree, or use "competency based learning"(Google that) and check out this college for THOUSANDS less-For a better career & a better life with less dept without MyComputerCareer.com
I recommend that you go get a Microsoft Press IT book - read it to get the basis and then go online to get practice tests - study them until you pass at 90% and then pay for and go take the exams. Cost - Less than a $1000.00 for everything. That is exactly how Tony and every other IT person really succeeded. Regardless either way, YOU STILL have to do all of the hard work.
Please, If you have to work with a group use the community college (they are so much less expensive) and not such a $$$ and a stretch against what is LIFE !!!
Sincerely, your friend! You have now been warned!
