HAZMAT 1951, when this blog came to my attention I researched your comments and found a history in our records concerning your situation. We strive for customer satisfaction and I am sorry that you were disappointed but I believe there was a misunderstanding. You were indeed granted a 50% scholarship all of which must be paid before you attend class, which is our policy, as it is most training organizations’ policy. You wanted to attend a class that was only a brief period of time away, so you had a short time to pay it. But you had the opportunity to take a later class and make payments beforehand for whatever period you chose. You later requested a 100% scholarship but those are normally only granted to individuals who are unemployed. You were gainfully employed and were planning to travel to Las Vegas to attend the class. So, the board decided that a 50% scholarship was appropriate. Please allow me to respectfully submit that even though you were disappointed that you didn’t get a 100% scholarship, neither the organization you chose instead, or any other similar organizations offer scholarships at all. We want to make our courses available to as many people as possible, because we truly have a passion for safety, which is why we offer scholarships. Our scholarships are given dependent on need. That is why we check one’s ability to pay. It is true that no one who is truly unable to pay full tuition is turned away.
