This charitable organization either has not responded to written BBB requests for information or has declined to be evaluated in relation to BBB Standards for Charity Accountability. Charity participation in BBB review is voluntary. However, without the requested information, it is not possible to determine whether this charity adheres to all of the BBB Standards for Charity Accountability. The BBB encourages charities to disclose accountability information beyond that typically included in financial statements and government filings, in order to demonstrate transparency and strengthen public trust in the charitable sector.
BBB reports on charities and determines if they meet 20 standards on matters such as charity finances, appeals and governance. BBB does not evaluate the worthiness of a charitable program.

If you are considering taking a course of instruction to prepare for a job in a particular field, you should first determine from those actually working in the field what kind of training is required and what the prospects of employment are. You should also check occupational outlook books, which are available in libraries. Find out if the school will help you find employment through its placement service. If so, determine the percentage of students the school has successfully placed in jobs. Remember that vocational schools cannot guarantee employment for their graduates.
(Some states require trade schools to be licensed and also mandate the disclosure of pertinent inforamtion, such as graduation and loan default rates. Such regulations also prohibit false statements to be made to prospective students.) Besides being properly licensed, if required, the school should be accredited by an accrediting agency as this insures that it maintains certain established standards. A list of all
nationally recognized accrediting agencies is published annually by the U.S. Department of Education. If you are interested in home-study courses, the National Home Study Council (1601 18th St., NW, Washington, DC 20009) maintains a directory of accredited home study schools.
Learn what the school's graduation rate is, understanding that a high dropout rate usually indicates poor quality or poor administrative standards. Talk with others who are familiar with the school, such as current and former students and potential employers, and try to visit to see the school's facilities. Finally, you should clearly understand all the terms of the enrollment agreement, including any financial arrangements, such as government loans that will need to be paid back, before signing a contract. Make sure any oral promises are confirmed in writing.
An organization may change its practices at any time without notice. Donors must decide for themselves the significance of any variation from BBB Standards, taking into account the relative importance of the practice in question in the context of the organization's total performance.

The information in the table below represents an industry comparison of businesses which are of the same relative size. This is based on BBB's database of businesses located in Dayton and the Miami Valley. Businesses may engage in more than one type of business. The percent of time the business engages in a type of business is not accounted for. There is no known industry standard for the number of complaints a business can expect. The volume of business and number of transactions may have a bearing on the number of complaints received by BBB.
Your complaint will be forwarded to the company within two business days. The company will be asked to respond within 14 days, and if a response is not received, a second request will be made. You will be notified of the company's response when we receive it (or notified that we received no response). Complaints are usually closed within 30 business days.
BBB promotes truth in advertising by contacting advertisers whose claims conflict with the BBB Code of Advertising. These claims come to our attention from our internal review of advertising, consumer complaints and competitor challenges. BBB asks advertisers to prove their claims, change ads to make offers more clear to consumers, and remove misleading or deceptive statements.
Some Better Business Bureaus offer additional content and services in BBB Business Reviews. The additional content and services are typically regional in nature or, in some cases, a new product or service that is being tested prior to a more general release. Not all enhanced content and services are available at all Better Business Bureaus.
