Buzz, which part is out of line? Please tell me.
Pete marked my post as dumb....I just replied in kind.

I can go link you to 10 threads where Pete has been argumentative.
Anyway, I’m out.

The Forum would be worthless if a rigorous debate was frowned upon Rodder099, don't give up, if I have been out of line then tell me please, I honestly felt my reply to your reply was an honest one, I was not looking for a scrap or fight as you described it, I pride myself as honest enough, that if I have been out of order then I will admit it. Please PM me with your concerns if you don't want to air an argument / debate in public.
I honestly thought your post was a dumb one, not that you were dumb, far from it you come across as a reasonable Guy, and we can't agree all of the time every time can we? the world would be a sd place if we did.

Maybe if you've failed a course 4 times, it simply isn't meant to be.

Unfortunately folks, I believe the clue to the op’s question was in the title of the thread. Is the training company ‘New Trades Career’ ? Might be a starter for 10 but I’m not familiar with this company.

Joking aside,i genuinely think that there are a section of people,who are just plain and simple,took for a ride with these courses.

Now,there will be others who possible make good,from such promises and sales speak,but this forum has seen it's share,of posters either asking to verify such assertions,or seeking guidance,after undertaking one.

I have spoke to many,who have been sold the "new" career/opportunity/earnings. There is a lad i know,who has been at this with a college in Yorkshire,part attendance,and mostly "online"...he is 6 years and five grand on...and is as close to being a spark,as he is a catalogue model (he looks like a blind cobblers thumb...)

Me 83 year old father,got an "investment opportunity" letter,from a Nigerian prince,last week:rolleyes:...some of these scams are just timeless...and i fear some of these courses,are much the same.
