Complaint / review text:
I was an Computer Instructor for Centura College in VA Bch for 2 years. During my stay I received awards and commendations for my work with students and enhancing the curriculum. This school is truly a scam. They are getting students to get loans for school/college, but they are not teaching the students.instructors are encouraged to pass students so that students can continue to receive financial aid. Once the program is completed students generally are over 30,000 dollars in debt and which most students will not be qualified to obtain a computer job once they graduate.in June of 2012 I resigned from my position after being threatened by students. Students were attempting to get a lawsuit going against the school because they felt they were being scammed. Students were upset with me because they felt I was the only one helping them and felt betrayed that I would continue to allow the school to scam them. Which I had no control over! Students are paying for a complete course and are being told they only have to complete half and they will pass.instructors are telling them they dont even have to come in and they will still pass. I know this because students have now come to me again and are asking for my help. They feel they cant leave now because they invested so much into the school. All of this has been approved by Beth Hall. She is the one who wants to keep her numbers straight so they will not lose their accreditation. I personally saw Beth Hall and my boss fudge information right before an accreditation. Back in June when I brought this to the attention to Beth Hall, days later she fired my boss, but I still have witnesses from students and instructors about how big this scam is. This has also been brought to the attention of the military, because half of all student s are military. Please read and review. All facts are true. Students are standing in line to be heard.
