WARNING SCHEIDEGGER PC MASTER COURSE

AdvantagesNone at all

DisadvantagesCosts a fortune and information is outdated and of poor qaulity.

"I did the scheidegger PC Master course and I so wish I hadn't. Basically this is how it works. You respond to a paper add claiming you can earn £20,000 a year as a Pc technician, A salesman comes to your house a pretends that you might not be good enough to get into their college as they are fairly selective, making you want to join to avoid rejection. He lies and tells you that you will become Comptia A+ certified if you do the course. He ..." Read review

My Scheidegger Experience

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesCoarse Material out of date

"...If they are formerly , Scheidegger I won't be going ahead with them now. I had a bad experience with Scheidegger about a year and half ago. I enrolled on a Web Design Managers coarse, the "Advisor" gave a sales pitch stating that you get a personal tutor with a team of 5 back up tutors, this was not the case, it took a few times to actually get through on the phone and it came across as a call center as opposed to a teaching section. I HAD to ..." Read review

Schiedegger - Beware of this Co.

Advantagesnone

Disadvantagesa very unpleasent feeling

"I recently signed with Skillstrain and subsequently realised I was told many lies and half truths. I was incorrectly lead to beleive I would be sponsored and after a 3 hour interview I miraculously 'passed' their aptitude test and was 'offered a place on the course'. It seems I was only just 'lucky' to get in. I can't begin to tell you what was said but among the lies was that only people over 35, that there was 5 local tutors and that Skillstrain ..."

Warning about Scheidegger

AdvantagesYou can study at home

DisadvantagesNot widely recognised

"I wasn't impressed by the Scheidegger course I did (Information Technology). A lot of it I already knew, and the stuff that I didn't know, I found it difficult to get help with when I needed it. There was pathetically little hands-on computer work, but worst of all, since finishing the course, I've found that no-one has heard of Scheidegger and my "qualification" is not worth the paper it's printed on. I'm sorry to be so damning but I really felt ..." Read review

SkillsTrain - EVIL

AdvantagesHome learning is a real bonus

DisadvantagesSales pitch sucks.

"Sales pitch all the way. A lady turned up in a very nice looking Mercedes, well dressed and very professional looking. I won't go into too much detail but she sat for over an hour doing my heading. Despite me knowing exactly what I want to do, how I want to do it, what/who/where I want to get a job after the training and despite the training I require only costing roughly £500 she insisted that I couldn't just take up the one training course.... Noooo, ..." Read review

Avoid Scheidegger

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesDeception from the outset

"...a brighter future but then Scheidegger were revealed for what they are. From the moment the Sales man arrived at my house i felt he was trying to make me believe that i would be honoured if i made it onto their course. The whole time at my house he was withholding important information and giving incorrect information. I completed the usual written test as everyone does and passed with flying colors. He then formally welcomed me (After calling his ..." Read review

Courses, in wasting time and money.

AdvantagesHome Learning.

DisadvantagesHidden Costs, Poor Tutor Support.

"...been studying Computersised Bookkeeping with Scheidegger since June '03, tutor support hasn't been great. I find that I have got behind in my studies due to my tutor often taking too long to send my previous assignment back to me.. As the current part of my course is computersied I cannot even go onto the next unit,until I have my previous assignment back,to correct any potential errors. But my biggest shock came just a week ago. The course ..." Read review

Wish I'd gone to a technical college instead !!

AdvantagesMaterial looks polished and professional

DisadvantagesLooks can be deceiving

"...company is closely linked to Scheidegger so you become locked into the course and are unable to quit without paying the full fees. Pretty sneaky way of getting money think. Anyway I signed up when perhaps I should have reconsidered. The course material is presented in spring back binders and has tuition and assignments on CD. It all looks very polished and professional. After several weeks of doing the course I noticed that some of ..." Read review

Scheidegger CIW - an expensive waste of time!

AdvantagesA nice collection of ringbinders you can use for something more useful

DisadvantagesSo many - Financial, emotional...the list goes on!

"I also signed up with Scheidegger after an "interview" with a very pushy salesperson. I had reached a stage in my career where I was becoming desperate, I needed to find a course that covered the topics most relevent to my work as a web developer. The CIW course seemed at first the solution I had been searching for. Again, I was convinced by the salesperson that the CIW certification was globally recognised/required by employers and would guarantee ..." Read review

Web Development Course

AdvantagesStudy in own time, software included, detailled information

Disadvantagesfairly expensive

"...had contacted Skillstrain about the Scheidegger course and when I got the curiculum list I was impressed, It covered ten times more than my intended HNC course and I soon realised that if i had completed the HNC i would still have needed to go on to university. I did find the cost to be fairly high, but the learning materials and support has been exceptional and is regularly updated both in the form of replacement coursework and online additions. ..."

Scheidegger/SkillsTrain. Don't go near!!!

Advantagesnot so ever!

Disadvantageswaste of a lot time and a lot money.

"They are liers! When one of their advisers came to my house he guaranteed that they find me a job after completion of the course. And a lot more. And I was too naive to believe them. It took me more than a year to finish that course. I could have done that in 2 months on my own, buying all materials myself which would've been much much cheaper. I was pissed with their way of teaching. Oh sorry, actually they are not teaching anything. They are just ..." Read review

SkillsTrain AKA Scheidegger

AdvantagesNone that I have found

DisadvantagesBad service - Out of date material - Ignorant Staff

"SkillsTrain AKA Scheidegger AKA Metropolitan International College AKA Metropolitan College AKA God Knows What Else.... I went for a course with these guys... Ha, I'm still fighting for a refund after they sold me one course and sent another. Because the course was late arriving in the first place Career Development Finance (who happen to be on the same street) inform me I did not cancel in time. To boot, they ignore all communication you send ..." Read review

Quick review of Scheidegger

"signed up with Scheidegger in 2004. received 1st two lessons via mail then nothing! no return of phone calls or e-mails. Like an idiot i was tempted by the promise of a golden new career. Like an idiot i signed up to a credit agreement that is costing me a lot of money for nothing. Clydesdale finance don't seem to care that they link their name with a company that doesn't deliver. as they say BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
