Phil C.'s Bio

Hi. Thank you for having me. I'm almost 54 years old. My wife & I are looking to leave the cesspool we live in - a.k.a. NYC - for good in June (2024). I'm looking to do something in agriculture, more specifically the broiler industry if possible, as a second career. (My "first" career(s) will be completely irrelevant and thus not even worth mentioning). We're considering Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia. I'm a native NY'er so considering driving to get a foot in the door to the industry and experience different aspects of it while making contacts. Leaning toward getting the CDL-A before I leave NYC.

Affordable CDL training, Colchester, CT

I called their phone number but couldn't leave a message as their voicemail is full but the owner called me back within 10 minutes. She told me that I could put $1,000 down and pay the rest before graduation. I visited the school, signed a contract, returned home to check my finances and paid $1,000 through their website. The guy who took my signed contract said he'd be in touch to schedule me for a class when payment was received, he never called. I called the school 14 times and they never got back to me, voicemail still full. I drove the hour out to the school, and spoke to the guy who took my contract. He said I just should have come in the next day after paying as they like to start their students right away. I was not told this before this point, yet he said I have "only myself to blame". He gave me a number to call to get a refund but it was the same number with the full voicemail. This was weeks ago and no one has called back. I filed a complaint with the BBB a month ago, no response from Affordable CDL. Buyer beware.

If anyone comes here in the future with a similar problem, and any money and/or agreements were made online (as the OP made the $1,000 down payment), be advised that you can file a complaint with the FCC and FTC. In my experience, companies respond more swiftly to that than they do to BBB complaints.
