Michael - 9/12/2016
Degree: Communications (Technical)
Graduation Year: 2015
"I enrolled and graduated from Fountainhead with my associate degree in 2005. I enrolled again in 2013 for my Bachelor's degree in electronics communications and graduated in 2015. I recommend FCT for real education regarding work on real systems you may see in industry. I furthered my career by attending FCT. The staff are all subject matter experts and are willing to help everyday. I attended other area schools and found the large classes created impersonal relationships with the students/ teachers. FCT has smaller class sizes that encourages good relationships with the staff and teachers; this becomes even more valuable when needing a letter of recommendation or assistance with class flexibility. I highly recommend Fountainhead College of Technology for technical training. And remember, all schools have strong and weak points, talk to the staff and decide for yourself!!!"

"This school is a complete rip off! For some reason they are marked with an A+ with the BBB (I've mad a claim). I'd say this is because they take advantage of naive people who don't know what to do when faced with crooks.When speaking with representatives of the school you'll hear only the best case scenarios... which I'm not entirely certain are even true. They tell you what you want to hear like that they have a 90% success rate with placing graduates with jobs They fail to tell you how many students they remove from a course before they can graduate.Speaking of being removed from a school.... they don't explain this to you ether. Apparently they can "drop" you from a class (without warning) whenever they feel that you aren't meeting their standers. In other words if you don't make a good mark on one test or miss one class they can kick you out and keep your money.The teachers are pathetic. They are ether ridiculously stupid or the most inconsiderate people you'll ever meet. They simply don't answer any questions you have nor do they bother to clarify what assignments are do and when. Leading back to them recommending you being removed from the school because, yes, your asking to many questions.Speaking of questions. The cost for one semester is around $5,000 (depending on what you study) but they don't pay the $50 for you certification test. This seems strange as we know the money isn't being spent on the school's or their equipment as you have to pay extra fees to use their lab (which consists of about four old bulky computers). They simple have no people skills. The receptionists as well as the representatives are wonderful. They smile and joke and can promote the school without your asking. Yet, the head of the school, Mr. Rogers is a complete (excuse my language but there's really no other word to describe him) dick. Really what irony that a man with the name of Mr.Rogers could have the personality of a vegan zombie. He's pretty much just a bully.Over all the school looks to a pretty good deal. They teach what you need to know quickly then set you up with a job all for just thousands of dollars (and maybe your sole) asking nothing in return. Unfortunately it seems that school is nothing more then a swindle, hiding behind cleaver legal loop holes and depending on the gullibility of the bright eyed high school graduate with big dreams or the desperate family man, living off food stamps and minim wage searching for a quick solution.Either way you look at it the schools a scam, save yourself the trouble and just pick a different school."
