Certifications....

Hey gang I'm researching for an article for the NPPG....

Seems the big thing for companies now is to "train and educate" you to THEIR "expectations"....
My biggest issue with this is that none of these comapnies charging you for "treaining and education" are accredited in any manner to be charging you for education. In addition, the certificates are not transferable to another company.

If anyone has been contacted by any company and this is a requirement to get on board with them this in effect becomes a "pay for work" scenario..I don't care how they dress it up...the duck is still a duck...

Can you guys post the toe organization links you have received for a request of this nature so I can contact the people for information for the article I'm putting together...

Thanks....

WW nothing on this subject huh????/
I do know of two companies AMS...and they have you do it through a third party...as they provide the school with you email and the school unaccredited school contacts you.
And VRM as part of their hiring process......
We also found another company advertising on LinkedIn today...
The biggest issue I have with these companies "testing" is the fact that others do not acknowledge the results....

Good topic, How about the Newbie regionals that will not offer a price list until after you pay for a background check? Different subject? Then when getting pricelist, they are too low to work for anyway!

I tell all perspective clients that we need a price list prior to completing any paperwork. If they don't want to supply it then we automatically pass.

Also my company policy.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

You can bet this "third party" school is the office across the hall, in the same building.

Any body here contacted by NOW P&P out of MI back in about '10?

They were charging $5000 for P&P school with no guarantees of work.
$5000 up front, no payment plans.

I told the guy calling me that even at $500 he was over priced and I didn't see his business model working.
He seemed to take offense to that and told me I should feel honored that I was the very first guy he called to offer his advanced schooling to.

Yeah right.




Here is a long list of scams perpetuated by these guys.

From reading thru just ONE of the ripoff reports it sounds like I was one of the lucky ones.
Being fresh off the screwing another BSing regional had done to me probably helped my spidey senses to be a little more alert.

I caught onto his bullspit fast and didn't want any part of it.
