Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: I drafted a Letter of Concern to Dr. ***** at Providence Training Institute with recommendations to improve processes on April 24, 2012 and never received a phone call from him regarding the issues below. I enrolled at PTI on 2/10/2012 and the start date of classroom training began on 3/13/2012. The complete experience was unsatisfactory and unprofessional. Specific issues are (1) Substandard teaching methodology; (2) Poor instruction; (3) Lack of monitoring students during PCT Externship/Follow-up with students; (4)Double standards for students; (5) Inflexible scheduling; (6) Changes to program after enrollment date without signed acknowledgment from students; (7) Lack of response to inquiries; (8) Refund for externship included CNA duties which were supervised by a Caregiver and I am already a Licensed CNA. Thus no training dollars expended by PTI for my first half of externship which was solely for CNA familiarity. Furthermore, a CNA is a higher level of qualification than that of a Caregiqver and this was very evident during my Externship with which protocol and standards were not followed.
Desired Settlement: Initial refund was 538 which included CNA Externship and should not include CNA Externship because I entered the program as a Licensed CNA by the State of Arizona and was already employed as a CNA at the time of enrollment. I expect another refund check with "no Externship hours served."
The above complaint is from a former student/customer. We issued her a refund despite the fact that she did not qualify for a refund under our published refund policy, because she had done more than 50% of her required 240hrs for the patient care technician program. She does not qualify for any more refund from our institution.
She received and cashed the check for $538 about 2 weeks ago.
She has been problematic with more than our institution and has filed complaints against the Nursing Home she did her externship.

Better Business Bureau:
I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint. For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below.
I have all emails to show that I was not a problem I did however address issues that I had with the school. Every complaint I have is documented along with the reply from the school. I am not the only student that has and is having the same issue's with the school, I am also not the only student who has witnessed abuse at the place the school sent us to do our externship. I have videos to prove the abuse at the site of externship as well. I chose to go to this school for my PCT not for my CNA because I already have my CNA I paid for my PCT not my CNA. The school never provided to me the externship for my PCT. The externiship or hours completed that I should not be charged for where for a CNA not a PCT. I did not sign anything saying I had to re-do my CNA. Please ask PTI to provide the BBB with some form of signed document by me saying I agree to re-do 160 CNA hours. As students we were promised from day one that we would learn the skills needed for a PCT and with only less then 100 hours to complete the course I still don't have those skills and was never sent anywhere to aquire them.
