ConsHidden Costs, Poor Tutor Support.

I have 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...

“SkillsTrain - EVIL”

ProHome learning is a real bonus

ConsSales 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...

“Warning about Scheidegger”

published 10/08/2000

ProYou can study at home

ConsNot 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...

ConsLooks can be deceiving

I saw the Skills Train advert on TV - looked great so I sent for info. Next thing I know there is a 'salesman' on my doorstep. After what seemed like ages, I had been talked through the details of the course I was interested in and agreed to sign up. At the sign up point I should in hindsight...

ConsSo 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...

Conswaste 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...

Excellent

published 19/08/2008

When I thought about taking up the cisco course I decided to do some research on the net. I was shocked to see some of the reviews on here (and one or two other sites). I did read some very positive reviews as well and made my own decision to go ahead with it because I was fed up with my job. The guy that came round was very friendly (but he has to be to make his sale) and the prospects looked great.. I wasn't too sure about signing up for finance with them but it meant I could afford to pay for it without high amounts of interest. Thanks, Pete
