Thames Valley College
School Scam

Alight so basically...I went to Thames Valley College of Buisness & IT. I enrolled in the Web & Graphic Design course, and was accepted for financial aid via O.S.A.P!..That's perfect! So i'm thinking i'm on my way to bettering myself and getting certifications to help me advance in life and land a stable job which turns to a career!..How wrong could I of been?!?! The course was a joke! My instructor only got maybe 1/4 way through my course before he got fired, and we never got a suitable replacement afterwards to continue teaching the course!! At the time, there was only myself and 1 other person in the course, and the other person had absolutely no experience or prior knowledge of any of the material in the course, however I was already previously experience and very knowledgable in the course and the materials. Dave Doobay (the school director and owner) chose to push text books and computer screens in front of the two of us in the course and more or less leave us to teach ourselves out of the books (which were far outdated might i mention). I ended up having to practically teach and instruct the other guy in my class just because I felt more sorry for him then I did for myself, having no knowledge of anything at all, and then having no instructor to help him! I was supposed to receive E-Commerce as a part of my course. I never got any of it. I was supposed to learn .CFM (ColdFusion, a web programming language) and before that part of the course even came up, Dave took it upon himself to change it from me getting .CFM to getting PHP (a different web programming language) but I never got that nor did I ever have an instructor lead class for it as promised and assured by dave doobay himself. Keep in mind it went from me learning .CFM, to me learning PHP, to me NEVER learning EITHER of them in my course AT ALL! I was also supposed to receive MySQL along wih the cfm, but when he changed the cfm to php language i was re-assured the MySQL would also come in that part of the calss as previously stated and planned. I STILL never got ANY MySQL textbooks or learning materials or any instruction on any of it, and since those things were learned towards the end of my course, Dave pushed me through to graduation without ever giving me two KEY components to my course, considering being a web designer involves web programming, and for Thames Valley College and its director Dave Doobay, to NOT FULFILL their course obligations to the students, I don't have those and cannot pursue a career in this field!!! My question is this; O.S.A.P is and has been chasing me for the student loan I got for this course, and want me to pay, but I didn't get my full course from the school and I refuse to pay anyone for anything that i never got! How or who do I talk to, to have someone look into this school and Dave Doobay, the director??????????? No matter who or how many times i talk to O.S.A.P they don't care just want their money, tried tot alk to school director many of times, and he has no ambition to honor my class requirements (even NOW) and give me the rest of my course...I don't know who to talk to about this because someone has to go after him for screwing over so many people... It's because of his crap and games I'm held back from attending a REAL school or class or course that would actually GIVE the course as it supposed to be given!!!
