Career Changer Beware Of Scams & Complaints So Make Sure You Check Reviews First!
Unfortunately due to the current economic climate the training industry is seeing the demise of a number of training providers – leaving students stranded. It is a pretty dismal situation if you have made a financial contribution towards your training and the provider goes bust.
In light of what is happening in the industry at the moment (January 2010) NCS are warning potential career changers to proceed with caution. NCS have also setup a special ‘Rescue Package’ for those that have been left without training – If you have been effected by the closure of your training provider please contact New Career Skills to see how they can help.
