Did you lose money when ComputerTraining.edu closed?
ComputerTraining.edu, a Hunt Valley, Md.-based school that's been offering computer training for 17 years, suddenly shut its doors in late December in the middle of classes.
The operation had teaching locations in 14 states, including centers in Towson and Annapolis Junction here in Maryland. The story was covered extensively by news outlets in other states.
The closure came as a shock to many, from students to government officials who track such private career-training schools. Here's my story on it from today's edition. Liz Kay, our Consuming Interests blogger, also has some details on the rights and options that the school's students have.
I'd like to hear from Maryland students (or students in other states) on your experiences in trying to get either a refund or placed in another program. What are your plans? Who is (or is not) helping you? Are you getting any help from ComputerTraining.edu? What about the student loans you may have taken out?
Please, leave your comments below. Thank you.
