Hello everybody I would be grateful if anybody could give me some serious advice... I signed up with ATL Practical Training a year ago to train to be a gas engineer, found the help from the 'tutors' very minimal so I stopped doing the course. I am now interested in training again to become a gas engineer, but when I researched ATL I found they are also known as many other company names such as 'Metropolitan International Schools Ltd' and now 'ERR' (according to City and Guilds)?? I was also told I could cancel the course at any time, which I have found is not the case and would have to pay £3000 to cancel it through Career Finance 4 Trade Skills Ltd!! It seems a lot of people have had problems with them, and are in the same boat. This sounds very much like a [problem] and I was wondering whether anyone has done any training with ATL? If so, did you have any problems? Also, did you get your qualifications in the end and were they up to date? I would also be grateful if anyone can recommend any gas engineering courses? Thanks everyone Tony
Hi Similar problem with ATL pt. ..paid almost £7000 for 3 books and 2 cd...no tutor support and no communication. Now, after I paid in full and 3 years past they refuse to refund my money saying that we finished our contract and they completed their obligations... My argument is that they never provide the service they promised so the course was a big lie as I found out that they can not provide the qualification (Renewable Engineer) I have sent two complain letters and they replied to one patronizing me, saying that numerous student completed their qualification... obviously they will not provide name and contact numbers to check that. I want to complain about them and their practices and get my money back. Any suggestions, please! Thank you
I started this course last year when I had just split up from my partner, recently had a baby and had to move home! A sales man came out and was saying how I would be guaranteed a plumbing job at the end of it and I would get loads of work as I am a woman and vulnerable groups prefer woman in their homes etc etc he said I could take as long as I wanted to complete and I would pay the college monthly!! As I am currently off work due to a back injury I am struggling to make payments and have contacted the college who have told me they need to see proof which I am gathering! As I felt I would be know longer able to continue due to a back injury and the nature of the job I started looking at the forums! People I know had mentioned these courses as being [problem]s before and saying you cant get a job after you complete it but I didnt realize it was actually true! I have already paid these people nearly 2,000 I have also read that they went into liquidation in 2010! I feel very stupid to be honest and I cant believe I rushed into something without taking time to research properly but now I just need help to get out of it and if possible get my money back! Does anyone have any ideas?? Is anyone any further forward if you have taken action!? Should I just stop paying?
