Choosing the right training provider.
Asking the following questions might be useful in helping you choose the right training provider for your career path.
What are the total fees?
What is covered in the total fee? Tuition? Books? A kit? Application fees? Graduation fees?

How much real experience will be provided if any?
What student support is offered if any?
Some schools may offer added support such as financial aid, job search services, counselling, computer access, etc.

There is a difference between certificate and certification. Certification is industry-recognized and granted only after meeting industry requirements through testing. A certificate is documentation of participation in any given course.
What are the minimum and maximum class sizes?

Some training providers may offer discounts at distributors post graduation. Other examples include parking, food services, technology supports, etc.
Are the instructors available for one-on-one support?
What methods can I use to contact my instructor after class?
Is there an attendance policy?
What is the training providers policy on attendance, personal image standards, conduct, etc?
What is the refund policy?
What if I change my mind before I start? The first week after? What if something unexpected happens that prevents me from finishing the course?
