Unsatisfied

I received this certificate from a short course offered by the public library in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I wasn't expecting it to be "accredited" from an American company. Unfortunately the certificate looks awful esthetically and I would be embarrassed to show it to anyone.

I signed up for a "continuing education" class at a nearby University. The good news is that the course was pretty easy and interesting. The total cost was around $200. My disappointment was when I sent in the completed exam and critique they emailed me a cheezy certificate from Allegra, rather than from the college I took the course from. One of the main reasons I went through the UNIVERSITY was to get a nice framable "diploma" type certificate. When I went to the University to show them the certificate refused to give me one with their information. In their explanation, they said the course wasn't accredited! I was dumfounded. Now, on my resume, if I decided to list the certificate, I have to list a non-accredited educational company, rather than from a college or university. Sounds a bit cheap and evasive to me. Previously, when I paid 1/4 of that amount for a continuing education course from other universities-even Harvard-they send me a nice "diploma".

There's many complaints about the same issue in other states that they use other college logos to get students in you can really reported to the Better Business Bureau and file a class action suit for misrepresentation but you have to read the manuals and advertising to see actually what it states to determine if they represented the accreditation appropriately.
