|Before I start, DO NOT attempt to contact CIE (Commission for Independent Education), this is a membership and schools do not get evaluated by the commission. I called end reported the issue and after 5 days waiting, no response.|
Here is my complaint (ESCORTED out by German at Kendall Campus for retrieving for the second time in less than a year students documents with YOUR personal information) and the AGENCIES I have contacted with no answer or the usual answer and I quote "we do not handle personal complaints" (FTC), "they are doing nothing wrong" (CIE).
Here is a list of AGENCIES that will help you NOT, with your complaint because we tend to forget that the owners of FastTrain are MILLIONAIRES and they have the agencies controlled, don't believe me? try them yourself and or do your homework and find out how much $$$$ does it take to open a single school like this and how much you can generate by underpaying your employees and overcharging Florida Unemployment or Federal Grants.
US Department of Interior 1-800-424-5081 (you will be re-directed to make a complaint)
(written complaints against schools in FL)
1-800-misused (Inspector General Federal Education Office, if you have a Title IV complaint, but be careful Mr. Christopher Miller WILL defend FastTrain)
US Dept. of Education, Florida Representative Area Case Director Toyoko Woodard- 404-974-9448, she will keep the case as far as it is not Title IV, other than that she will send it to Mr. Miller above)
Florida Federal Trade Commission- 1-866-966-7226 (will not take a single complaint, they will proceed with mine if someone else complaints) Lets get together and make a massive complaint!!!
ACICS (Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools)-fax or e-mail complaints, or 1-202-842-2593.
If you want to REALLY be heard contactHELP ME HOWARDat to get together and make a PEACEFUL strike in front of the campuses on the same day...TV will notice and the Federal and State Agencies will have to do something before its too late!!
According to FastTrain the records found for the second time in the dumpster were to be destroyed by a "shredding company" after asking the school owner Mr. Amor for a copy of the shredding policies... guess what I got...you guessed it NOTHING!
I got accused of "breaking into private property" and like I said before "escorted out of the premises and un-officially "expelled" from FT, my wife suffered the same consequences despite the fact that she has nothing to do with it.
BTW, me and my wife are Army Veterans (Officers) and we have aMasters and a BA respectively. We were helping our son to do his 9 months course. I finished the MIS course with an 3.65 and my wife has a 3.90 GPA.
Per Fastrain Catalog; Family Educational Rights / Privacy Act
FastTrain complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 Buckley Ammendment, Public Law 93-380, Section 438. All students records are confidential
If this is true, How come FT is not responding to my request of the so called "video" of me breaking into the facilities to "steal" students records?
Answer- FT does not or can not prove such thing since they disposed the records for the second time in their dumpster. FT does not complies with these two laws since they violated them by denying me copies of records pertaining to or associated with me and they did not DESTROY YOUR RECORDS!!
BTW, do not mind people defending FastTrain, the employees are paid to do so.
