    Well first of all just joined the forums, so hello to all. I really wish I had viewed this site towards the end of last year! Sorry folks my first thread is going to be a bit of a moan! Well basically I have signed up for A+ and CIW with Computeach. Not wanting to go into my complete personal situation but going through a divorce at the moment and this all kicked off after signing up for me computeach stuff! Well to cut a long story short and as I have been disappointed with the literature and course work received so far decided to contact computeach advise them of my circumstances and ask to pay for what I had completed so far(only the first 2 introduction modules) and be refunded the rest! I have just recently received my standardy response quoting refer to clause this and clause that and basically telling me I was stuck with the course like it or not! Just wanted to know if anyone has gone through the same as considering taking legal action if I can find a loophole as was not happy with the hard sell, the cost and to be honest in general what crappy material i have received to date for my dosh!

    Hiya Andy.

    While I can understand your disatisfaction with your course
    work, and hard sell. Unfortunetely you have signed up a
    financial agreement to undertake the course.

    It's very much like taking out a loan for a car, then deciding
    after 6 months that it doesn't run right, can you get your money
    back, the answer is the same mate??

    Computeach are a company who are good at what they do, like
    all the other training companies, making money and throwing out
    figures to make them look good. Everyone does it mate.

    While I don't really approve in the way they recruit, I like many
    others went in with open eye's and looked at all the options
    BEFORE signing up. If like others i've heard go on about lately
    you signed up expecting everthing handed to you, a £50,000
    pa job then i'm sorry but:
    if it's sounds too good to be true? then its probably not? Get what I mean?

    Please do not take offence by anything I've said, as I do not
    know your circumstances at all,
    when I signed up, I then
    changed jobs, left my home, hit rock bottom (and i mean the bottom)
    but still had to persue what i'd undertaken with them.

    Some of the material does get better, and some is a bit outdated,
    but i have to add that when studying for win NT/95/98 then why
    should it be new material? they are old systems, the new
    material i've recieved for Xp is bang up to date?

    As I say mate, please don't take any offence - not intended but
    I can fully understand your feelings - ok?

    That's bad to hear. :(

    Everytime I see the Computeach advert on the TV it makes me laugh that they have the testicular fortitude to carry on advertising despite all of the complaints against them. :D

    Please don't type in upper case, it makes my head hurt.

    Take them to court for what?
    You've paid for something, used it and decided you didn't want it any more.
    Why should they give your money back? Where does that happen in life?

    You'll have to go to court and have to admit that you signed up for something you didn't usnderstand without reading the small print and they'll laugh at you.

    The only chance you've got is if they havent provided you with something that they said they would. If it's something the salesman promised verbally then you've got the problem of proving it...

    I agree with Jonny. Just type like the rest of us. We'll still "hear" you, ok. Yes, you should have done your homework but we all make mistakes in judgment. I pinned this thread at the top of the Training forum for a reason. See if it makes sense.
