Additional Notes

Complaint: November 17, 2014, I went into The Academy of Learning, telling the worker/counselor I wanted to do billing and coding from home to work remotely. She ************************ had to go back and forth several times to get clarifications; ********************************* I was severely misguided. **************************************************************************************************************************** after getting thru 4 modules I realized I won't be leaning ICD-9 or 10 coding anytime soon with the course, because it's not even in the text book or CD. ************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************ I wanted a refund less of course text books an fees. I was emailed by ******* who told me to read the contract I signed that there is no refund. It's super vague and lists nothing to the effect of no refunds on online certificate courses that I can see.********************************************************************************************************************************************** I want my refund. *******************************************************************************************************************************

Desired Settlement: I want my full refund now, I want $840 dollars back *************************************************************************************************************************************************.

Business Response: Final Consumer Response /* (3000, 7, 2014/12/10) */ I was contacted by the General Manager of the Academy of Learning and ******************************************************************************************. He advised me via email that he has approved my refund for the full amount of $840 and the return of the materials/texts at my convenience. ***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** As it stands there is a cheque to be in the mail.
