I should begin with this disclaimer, I made the decision to sign the contracts under my own discretion and free will. Now I will make the most important statement regarding this post, I made a very substantial financial mistake attending Techskills LLC.
The reason for my decision to attend Techskills was very simple, I wanted to pursue my education and increase my marketability Im nothing special you see. I was excited to hear that Justin, the Recruiter slash Salesman slash Misanthropic Pseudo Confidant wanted me to succeed and make money, I made a mistake by trusting a stranger who claimed to want whats best for me.
The money they charged for their Tesptprep software was totally outrageous, considering that the test material that came free with my book was just as substantial in preparing me for the CompTIA exam I took. Coincidentally however, a couple of the questions in their Testprep software were worded verbatim per a couple that were on the actual CompTIA exam, this is a factual accusation that I would testify to in a court of street law where I would receive justice. I paid $5000.00 for a Network + Certification, that got me a $10.00 an hour job in the computer industry. Anyone who wants to get certifications for the computer industry should take advice from me, do what I do now. Download the book that concerns your certification off of a torrent site, read it after work and buy the equipment involved, you'll get your certification for the price of the book, equipment and your spare time.

Or just go to a community college, you'll have more human and material resources and you won't have to buy the equipment.
To Carmen Robl the Director of and Justin XXX the Recuiter of Techskills Denver, Colorado I want to tell you something. You afforded me a great lesson in human nature, never gain will I trust that someone has my best interests at hand concerning my educational and financial wellfare. My only hope in regards to your welfare is that you may suffer the lesson I have learned once; one thousand times over, in a thousand different emotional and physical realms, and may you never learn your lesson. Catch a cold sore and die alone.

    My employer is paying for mine, otherwise I wouldnt pay that much. They give me some structure, which I needed. You get out of it, what you put into it. The staff at the Charlotte, NC campus are great!

    I was a student at TechSkills I came out of TechSkills with A+, Network+, CCNA and MCP and at the time a $16/hr job which after 2 years has increased to $24/hr. The people I have seen not make it either 1)started school in the midst of many life problems. 2)Weren't really motivated and just wanted to tell people they were in school. 3)Lazy. 4)Stupid 5)Crazy or 6)Can't speak English. The only thing TechSkills does wrong is not weeding out the Crazy and Lazy applicants.

    Good!!, I just went to take my exam there. The lady at the front desk was rude and totally arrogant.
    i will never ever take any exams there at this facility. Cisco should dropped them as a facilitator providing exams.
    Along with other vendor that chooses to use this same company.

    These types of schools are predators dressed as educators. You should ask (1) What educational training and/or education background to your instructors have? (2) What type of teaching experience does you up front and back office staff have? (3) Who are your instructional technologists? (4) Where are they ? (5) What is the completion and placement rate for your particular facility?(6) Who on the staff has teaching degrees?

    Best advice: Attend a community college.
