Fasttrain holding my Transcript for ransom

1. The complaint should be written and legible;
2. It should include as much detail as possible;
3. It should include appropriate supporting documentation, if available; and
4. It should include the complainant’s name and contact information. Anonymous complaints may be investigated, at the Council staff’s discretion, if the allegations are serious in nature
To Whom It may concern,
I am writing to you to file a grievance against Fast train. My entire Fast train experience has been a bad one. The biggest problem that I have had is their parting shot. They are holding my transcripts and refuse to release them even though I have paid them in full. They insisted that I give them a large amount of money even though I had a payment agreement with a third party company named TFC. There is apparently a 45 day lag between TFC and fast train. Fast train insisted that I was 2 months behind on my payments and referred me to collections, To a man called Elio Chang. The Executive director refuses to call TFC to confirm that I was telling the truth and told me that according to her record that I was delinquent. I told her that my new school Florida Tech requested my Transcripts and she said according to her record no one had requested my transcripts. I told her both of this issue that she is refudiating can be easily confirmed. She refused to help me. I begged Mrs. Amore to release my transcripts because I am poor and I really can’t afford to pay off fast train in one lump sum. And that we had a preexisting payment arrangement that I have been paying on diligently and I begged her to let me continue to make payments. Her exact words were.” If you can prove that you made your payments and can prove that Florida tech has requested your transcripts we will take it from there”. Since then she has refused to return my phone calls even though I have proven both of those things. Furthermore I have empty my life savings to pay off Fast train leaving myself destitute and penniless. To satisfy the debt that imposed on me. I have called Dawn Amor 35 times or more in the last three weeks and she has not returned a single phone call.
In a conversation with Elio Chang said, ” Dawn Amor made and executive decision to put a hold on your transcripts”. Which led me to believe that she did this to me on purpose. I will not get processed for financial aid unless Dawn Amor allows my transcripts to be sent to Florida Tech Before 25th to allow time for paper work to be processed. I am a single parent and I am raising a child on my own. My father passed away last year and I have no one to help me or look out for me. My wife is terminally ill with cancer and will not survive to see me finish school. I agreed to go to Fast train because they promised me Job Placement assistance, Qualified instructors, state of the art equipment, and personal individualized service.
They lied about everything and as soon as I was finished with that nightmare I tried to go to a really college because I was so sad that I made such a mistake. I feel so foolish for trusting them. Now because I can`t get Financial aid because Fasttrain won’t release my transcripts I owe Florida Tech about 6000.00 that I have to pay in cash, Before I can reenroll to any school. I am ruined for a very long time and all of my dreams for a better life for me and my Son are ruined.
I paid them the money that they demanded but they still come up with one excuse after another why they won`t release my transcripts. Time is running out for me. My Father would be very disappointed in me for letting this happen, my wife may pass away without ever seeing that I am really going to succeed and my son might never know a better life than the one that we lead right now.
Please help me, you have the authority to ask Dawn Amor to Release my transcripts and let me be a success story not just another life ruined my Dawn Amor and Fasttrain.
They will not even tell me when they will release my transcripts.

I can provide as much documentation as you like I have the return receipt from the check I sent they signed for. I paid with a cashier’s check so the money is easy to track. However, they will not deny that I paid them they will just make one excuse after another why they won`t release my Transcripts. I can even provide the email where they change the story time and time again.
Please all you have to do is call and tell them that this is unacceptable.

Fasttrain Ripped me off. I am looking for people with similar experiences for a class action lawsuite.

My name is Gilbert Conrado. I started Fasttrain on November of 2006 taking the ( Management Information Systems) course applying for a student loan of around $ 14, 133.29 which I already paid a total of $18, 000.00 Dollars.
Even tough I have been working as a systems administrator since 2004, I think that the courses at Fasttrain were too intensive at that time specially when a person is a fulltime employee, By taking 2 classes at a time and right after finishing one class starting another I believe it was too much if you want to study after taking a course to get certified. I’ll like to mention that all of my instructors at Fasttrain advised me and all of the students in the class to study and get certified right after finishing each class in order to be fresh with the material, But this seemed to be impossible because there was no time to study because the classes never stopped.
This situation led me to start canceling/dropping classes paying each time a $100.00 dollar fee which I had no problem paying for, all that I wanted was to learn in order to get certified following my Fasttrain instructors advise.
After dropping classes, the employee that did the scheduling at Fasttrain would call me and let me know if my course was available for the coming semester. This happened only a few times they stopped calling me, and after that I started making the calls to Fasttrain to find out if courses were available for me. I’ll like to mention that at that time there was little or almost no communication from Fasttrain and I assume that it was because employees including office staff and instructors did not last very long working for the school having me to explain over and over again my situation to the new office staff.
The last time I called Fasstrain I was told by an employee by the name of Jean Frances Graham that I had dropped out of the school and there was nothing they could do to help me and that I had lost the $14, 133.29 that I had already paid Fasttrain through Sally Mae, I insisted and told her that all I did was to follow their advise, then she told me that she was going to do her best to help me and asked me to send my credentials report to Mr. Santiago Martinez on 7/28/09, which I sent, he received and approved.
I continued to communicate with Ms. Jean for about 2 weeks and finally she told me that everything had been taken care of. She told me that Fasttrain had given me credit for my courses taken at the school and also Ms. Jean promised me that Fasttrain will let me continue my education at the school for the same price that i registered for in 2006 because the price for the program had increased, She also added that Fasttrain will give me all the credit from all the money they had already collected from Sally Mae, and that Fasttrain will let me finish all the course without paying anything, and that I was scheduled to start classes at Fasttrain on September 8th 2009 . She added that the only fee I had to pay was a $250.00 Dollars for the credentials verification (signed by Mr. Santiago Martinez on 7/28/09) which I went to see her personally and gave her a check for $250.00 and signed a few forms.
Later that week i was contacted by Mr. Theo Gibbings saying that they could not do anything for me but he was going to try to help me and to email him a letter explaining my situation. After that i did not hear from him anymore, i tried to reach him on the telephone, but they always told me he was busy or in another call (to leave a message) which i always did. The last call i made to him, a person told me that he was busy and that i was going to receive a letter in the mail. I received the letter saying basically that if i wanted to go back to school i had to pay for the whole course again.
I believe that this situation happened because of the lack of communication from Fasttrain office staff, instructors, and the fact that instructors as well as office staff did not last very long working for Fasttrain, but the bottom line is that i ended up paying $18, 000.00 dollars for a computer course that i never received. I feel i have been ripped off and its just not fair not receiving a service that i paid for.
If there is anyone outthere having a similar situation with Fasttrain (Computer School) Please comment on this blog i am looking to do a class action law suit against them. You can also email me at [protected]

Thank you very much.

Fasttrain Great School

Dont believe everything you read on the internet. I went to FastTrain at the Kendall Campus and my experience could not have been better. I was working a full time daytime job and studied at night. My instructors were great the equipment was up to date. The best experience is the career person at the Campus. He sent me to two interviews and I got my first job at a major Fortune 500 company. My salary went from less than $20, 000 a year to almost triple that. I was hire with four certifications but still working on additional certification. My new employer will even pay for me to go back to school if I want.

I had three different instructors during my year at FastTrain and I still call them when I run into a problem that I cant fix (yes being certified doesn't necessarily means you are a know it all). If you are considering schools I highly recommend FastTrain. Dont take my word, stop by the school and talk to their students.

Do you still really think FASTTRAIN it's not a SCAM?
I was a +A at the Tampa campus, we were just about to graduate and after the "visit" of FBI & DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION, they just shut down the school suddenly without letting us know. Now me and my classmates don't know what to do because Principal continue telling us lies, we are stuck, they sold/transfer the school to another school and now FASTTRAIN doesn't exist anymore. This has been the worst nightmare ever for me and my classmates, we had to resist all this GETTO and all this bad joke because most of the "teachers" didn't know any thing about education, this school took away from us our time, effort, dreams and of course...OUR MONEY.

Its it worth it

I have the professional network dip. from here. I had some good teachers some real bad ones. I feel they gave me the information to make it and thats it as far as the certs go they are way off. Learn the product and hell cheet like crap its the only way to make it for the certs. I got a high up career thank god it was slow teach yourself if you can save the money. I need the dumb degree now and looking for fast train to try to rip me off again. I think I need to go with them for the credits I already have thats the only reason I hope its not going to be to much. I am seeing a as degree run from 8 to almost 50k wow and they wonder why people just say the heck with it. Back to the point the school has goods and bads as with anything just watch yourself. I think it is better to go online and find some training vedios and watch them. Go to some place and make 3 computers. 1 to just take apart make changes to and see how it all works. 2 Make a good computer to work with you don't have to spend a thousand on a computer to make a good one by the way. 3 make a server and use it during learning. Make a little network and remote back and forth ect. you will spend about 5k on all this and still lean about as much as I did. Good luck to all the IT people one last thing keep up to date.

No. Judging by the spelling and grammar of the students here, it's obvious FT is making easy targets of kids who would be better of just going to Community College. I started FT in '05 in Oakland Park. They didn't promise me the world. They promised that If I buckled down and studied hard they would help. For my A+ course I feel I really buckled down. I learned a lot from that course. But I realize that eveything I learned, I LEARNED. Very little (other than how to configure JUMPERS, or how to plug in a Router and log on to it = basically the most in depth hands on stuff we did LOL) did the instructers teach me.

My A+ instructor was Mr. German, a Cuban man from Miami who was more higher up and was only teaching the course because they couldn't snatch some young, know-it-all IT pubescent teacher from the Miami Clubs early enough the night before to drag in. G was a cool guy. I really felt like he was a guy from the streets and he preached about that. I respected his story. But then I realized that most of my teachers were all "Cool people". When it came down to it, me and my peers had to read and study and hope we each had throw away computers at home to work on. Because the computers in class, when the screens weren't busted out or the backs were missing, were ALL 1990's. I don't even think most computers had XP. This was 2005 mind you. I remember in the back of the class, all the junk parts and whatnot they had, were even OLDER. LOL. I swear they had the first prototype laptop there. Don't go to this school thinking that when you have to learn about printers you'll be able to work with some of the ones that are modern, current and on the market. Nothing they had was up to date, and most the time itdidn't work. I vouche for whoever said the net was ALWAYS down. And we had to rely on the net basically to do our own studies.

All in all, this place can really hurt you if you're independant. Thank God I still have my parents but even they have tough times with their finances. This place taught me a more valuable lesson then I ever imagined. ALWAYS do your research people! ALWAYS Do background checks! Do them yourselves! Don't jump in to thingS!

Judging by all the terrible spelling and grammar, I'm thinking, most of you should probably figure out the english language before trying to take an IT program. And the fact that some of you attended this school for free is a joke.
For those of you that are serious about making a career in the IT field, and don't make excuses for your lack of dedication, FastTrain is a great school. If you want to be treated like an adult and can actually budget your time correctly, this is a great opportunity
Attention USA: Please stop loaning grant money to people who have no business taking IT programs. Make them test into it.

If this makes any of you upset, GET OVER IT! That's some real life experience for you.

Call me anonymous: What I will say is very true, nothing more nothing less, and do not judge me.

I went to this school (The Fort Lauderdale campus) for their medical billing/coding program.
It is extremely low class and ghetto! I came in via a work force one government grant, after being told that I could get one since I did not qualify for a loan. (credit score at the time was not the best.) So I got the grant (and I am damn glad i did because that loan would have made it worse in the future and more worthless of an education.) My classes were all out of order (where as in a decent school) you would normally start with your beginner classes so that you have a strong foundation... but it was totally opposite. (you started with whatever class was available at the moment.)< VERY TRASHY AND UNPROFESSIONAL> They force all that info into your head within a 3 week time frame, where as in a good college that same class would take you at least 8-10 weeks or something like that.( because the knowledge is very extensive). They get angry and say that you are not trying enough when you may need extra help. Most of the students who enrolled their for the medical billing were these (bitter about life ghetto as hell, baby mama types.) It made me feel like I was sitting around a bunch of losers and did not want to come to school, they just have so much negative energy. Teachers were always quitting or fired (what ever). Equipment hardly ever worked and was very old. Sometimes you don't receive your text books on time. I have even encountered students using books from a previous year (sometimes a little outdated, and that is not good for a field that is always changing. As far as job placement, when I was finished with the program the first thing i was told was that I needed experience. They can't really help you at all. They did not even have an intern or externship for you to get your little 3 mos experience. And guys, for the record: That little externship means absolutely nothing in the real world. You have got to find a way to network, try volunteering, its the easiest thing that I can think of, and then you can add it to your resume for experience. Even the teachers don't have good advice on how to get in the field that they are teaching themselves. When we did our career course at the schools for job interview practice, I have to let you know that the teachers are very old fashioned about it with those [censor] old 1970's interviewing styles. We are in 2010 people! Fast train hires anybody. Most of the teachers lack real talent for lectures or instructing. There was one very excellent instructor, very concerned with our education and students obtaining employment, but I think that they might have fired him because he was gone so suddenly. After becoming a student over time, they begin to treat you like [censor], like just another number and the only concern is that grant voucher when it's time to receive it (money). Now this was between [protected] time. I doubt that they get any better. The one thing that I am grateful for is the fact that I got the grant instead of a $19, 000 loan. I am happy that I don't owe them any money. Please don't say it's just me. As a matter of fact, roughly all the people I know that went there, feels as if they have wasted their time. I only decided to finish the program because I like to finish what i start.
So my advice to all of you would be at the least: If you want to go to school, especially fast train for that matter, do your research, check the school out, don't rush just to get into an institution just to say that you are in school, Realize that this is a game and don't listen to some admissions counselor who says only good things because that is their job, (What do they know about what is best for you?) Absolutely nothing. Try doing some volunteer work in your field before signing some stupid contract, so that you could know what the field is all about. Take the time and sleep on your decisions, because these types of schools are very good at trying to make people feel guilty about waiting to go to school. Remember when you go to a school like this, someone has to pay your bills (And that is real talk). The one way to get some experience is to go out and volunteer for a company that is in the line of work you want to pursue, (that is common sense) The teachers could not even give me that simple advice, which should tell you how bright they really are. When I first enrolled, they did not even check to see if I even had a high school diploma and I had a lady in my class with no diploma or GED and last education was 9th grade. I happen to be very intelligent but I just jumped in to this without research( so that would be my fault). I am definitely not bitter, it just teaches me experience and at the end of the day, this is a game. A game for the takers and the took. You decide which one you are.
I am not an immigrant and English is my primary language, so I was able to understand all of this, (TAKE IT FROM ME). FAST TRAIN IS A RIP OFF (TRUST ME).
NOTE: This is one of those government schools from work force one, so really you should just go straight to work force one and take a look at their list of schools to choose from. because depending on your situation you probably don't have to sign a loan and [censor] up your credit. Why not get it for free if it's available. Just go down to those government agencies and tell someone that you would like to inquire about going back to school.

follow only your heart and what make you happy.

I found this on the internet today. I just started at this school in pembroke pines last month and so far it has been great. My cousin started 6 months ago and he already got two certifications. A lot of people sometimes complain because it can be harder than other schools, but if it was so easy it would not pay as much as it does. The school was cheaper than alot of the schools arounnd my house and the courses and stuff I am learning in class is alot funner and cooler than my friends and miami dade and fcc learn. It has been the best school I have been at in my life. My teachers are all real cool and care that I am learning. The classes are a little empty cause they just moved, but the school is growing.

If you had a bad time at school it was probably because you didnt study or you didnt care. I would sign up all over again.

I used to be the busdriver at the Kendall Campus and was fired because I questioned why they always make me take the recruiters fishing for new students in the same poor neighborhoods of Fl.City, Goulds, Naranja and projects in Homestead-I will be helping FBI with this investigation

In regards to the comment about the school being 10K for less than 6 months, a school can charge you for an entire semester if you've sat in class for the first 3 days. (This is in the enrollment agreement) If you're going to a school that is a 12 month program for 30K, then 10K is actually less than what it should've cost, unless you're in a program that was less.
Bottom line, do research before you start college, and when you're in your Financial Aid appointment, before you start, listen, and read the contracts you're signing. The school can not receive Federal loans without your consent. If you went for 6 months, you're going to be charged for 6 months.
Also, if you graduated from FL Career College, you should be asking THEM for your money back, because you can't form a complete sentence!

I have been at FastTrain in Clearwater now for 5 months and so far this is the best school I have ever gone to. My instructor Mr. Goode is excellent and always ready to help me with anything I need. The girls that work there are real nice and help me when I need it and the teachers are real good. It sucks that you dropped out but so far I can't wait to graduate. They constantly bring people from businesses that offer jobs and talk to us all the time, and my best friend just got certified! I recommend this school to everyone I know.
