CompTIA Security+ 2011

"I paid £90 for extra textbooks when I first joined them and then called them and found out I could have got them for free! It was those kinds of things that were off-putting in the early days but it would always be a 5 star review for me which I promised I would get around too (at the end). It has taken me 8 and a half months but I went from my CompTIA A+ with them to the EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker and am currently now employed at just under £49k (again slightly less than I was promised) but I am only working 30 hours per week from home. The team were brilliant for me every step of the way and their training was excellent. I would advise any new starters to ignore the practice labs at first, at least until getting on the Network+ / Security+ where they become more relevant, again you have to ask for the labs, they didn’t just give them to me. But overall they have been brilliant and I am now successfully in the new career that I’ve wanted for the last 4 years. As long as you put the work in, they will get you there.

"Mis-sold a course, help and motivation offered but only until direct debits were successfully setup. Got none of the benefits I was promised at time of sale, totally fraudulent and zero student care. When I complained, I was promised help from customer services department but after the third broken promise, I stopped receiving contact altogether, no refund offers made even after proving the dishonesty of their company. £3,500 down the drain. Fraudulent and money grabbing company. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!" - 01-02-2020 22:57

"I used to work there and we got paid on commission. Our target was based upon gross profit. The sales people would set the price to get the most gross profit.
Example: call in and say you’re a dentist, it’ll cost 4K. Call in say you work at Tesco, 2.8k.
Also the lies!! As it’s a sales company expect to hear what you want to hear:
Example: If you earn 40k per year already, expect to earn 80k when qualified. Earn 20k, expect 40k.
Starting salaries with these qualifications are more realistically 24k. It doesn’t take a genius to know that the big salaries require experience and a lot more than a self study course. Although expect to be told otherwise.
Don’t trust me? Call in pretending to be a high earner, see what is said and try another call (with new calling details as you will be saved on their CRM with notes) being somebody else and see what another reps tells you.
The other point of ‘exams included’ is worth knowing about. 80% of people don’t get round to exams so The Learning People never have to pay to get you a voucher so their profit rises more! They know that the missold expectation means most customers won’t get as far as exams. Unless you study non stop for years.
If the courses are for you, you have realistic time to put in (we are talking over 4 hours a day to be qualified in a few years) Go direct to the retailer for the RRP and not be upsold with student care (a rep who books exams) cv detox (a unqualified person looking at your cv) or exams included (only if you get there and pass a mock exam with certain scores).
This is your career but just a sale to them. Be expected to get stuck in a finance plan.
Expect lots of fake reviews to follow this as (much like their questionable rating on trust pilot) they fake review to get customers." - 29-08-2019 07:48
