Report Filed: ATI trade school Promised training I never received Garland, Texas!!
I was promised an education in fire alarms, Burglar alarms, Access control, CCTV, Nurse call systems and a few other systems as well. Out of the systems we did work on the only one my teacher knew how to do was the CCTV system. All the other systems were not completed at all. The burglar alarms circuit board got fried the first day the first class was working on it and by the time it was our turn to work on it it did’nt work anymore. So we never got to work on it. The systems we did work on were’nt functional, we could not properly program the fire alarm systems, burglar alarm systems, and access control systems. We did not even have the proper materials to program the access control system. None of the systems were properly assembled. Most of our time was spent reading books in a classroom with our teacher advising us on systems he never worked on. They also told us most of our hands on training wouls come from the field. In the first job interview that i went to, they literally told me to go and get my money back. I was not properly trained on any of the systems we were promised and paid to be trained on. There are no words to express how deceived I feel. To change my life around to go to school, have as much money to pay back as I do, and sacrifices made in being promised something I did not recieve, I would b expected to at least have the knowledge to have a career which would enable me to support my family. Hence the purpose of going to school.
