Our Vocational Training Can Guarantee You the Job of a Lifetime. Consumer Bulletin No. 13.
Federal Trade Commission, Washington, DC. Bureau of Consumer Protection.
This guidebook cautions the potential vocational school student about the possibilities of false claims, poor training, and unreliable job promises from commercial trade, technical business, and correspondence schools. It points out what sort of things to look for and which claims to take seriously. Defenses against an aggressive sales pitch are suggested. Sources of reliable information on vocational schools are given and the contract form is explained. Finally, means of redress are given. The included folder reiterates the major points--how to get solid facts, what to ask about, and what protections are available for the potential student. (MS)
