We are starting to see the failure from ECMC / Zenith / Altierus. And their lack of knowledge in the Education sect.
They have hired Todd Steele, President, Zenith Education Group to oversee the direction of Jacob Kassuba – Vice President, Campus Operations
and Tom O'Donnell – Senior Vice President, Operations.
Not sure why you need two vice pres positions with 3 small campuses. But I digress. All three men are Alum from CEC (Career Education Corporation) a for profit company. So its the boys club. I give one of these guys less than a year and they will be terminated
Now for the good stuff. Zenith Education Group has 3 campuses. All are under performing. Its has been alleged that all 3 campuses are falsifying placement and graduation numbers. This remains to be seen.
Within a year and a half, the CIT program is being taught out because students cannot pass the A+ exam required by ACCSC for graduation. Last day of program estimated Oct 2020. No new students are enrolling. This was a multi million dollar program to launch.
This is more evidence that ECMC, the parent company of Zenith has no desire keeping these schools afloat.
The Tampa location is on show cause from ACCSC for inaccurate placement numbers. The attrition rate at all 3 locations is above 10% despite what the company discloses.
As it looks now. The 3 remaining campuses will announce teach-outs of all programs and shutter in late 2020 early 2021.
Stay tuned for more juicy information. We have the inside track on all things Altierus.
