As Laramie WyoTech struggles with recruiting students it's not looking good for the rebirth of WyoTech. Talked with a couple recruiters and they said they are having a hard time signing students to attend the school. One recruiter that has worked for... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Zenith Education Group
Here are the listings on the U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION CLOSED SCHOOL UNIT https://www2.ed.gov/offices/OSFAP/PEPS/docs/oct18sec1.pdf
I think Mathis got the school fairly cheap and he had investors so not much skin in the game. I also believe he owns the apartments there and will rent out to UW students so he will make his money there. The school will close within a year.
Things aren't going to well for WyoTech's rebirth. Jim Mathis is discovering why ECMC pulled the plug on WyoTech, no one wants to go there. Classrooms are empty and the next start in January looks even more dismal. With the economy on the upswing and... read more
You fill in the blank.... The pathetic demise of zenith education group is in the hands of Dave Hawn, Peter Taylor, and finally Jeremy Wheaton! I want to thank you for leaving all the incompetent and abusive people that only want " YES MEN" in charge... read more
They are all in bed with each other. Its a sick, disgusting, vile industry. No wonder students are failing today. We have asshats like this driving the train... read more
ECMC still owns this company In January 2015, in United States District Court, Southern District of California, a judge issued an Order in a case alleging Premiere Credit of North America had violated state and federal FDCPA provisions. In this case... read more

Things are going as planned for WyoTech Reboot. Students just don't seem to interested in WyoTech anymore. Signing up a few locals and that's about it.
Tuesday, August 14, 2018 I’m Goldie Blumenstyk, a senior writer at The Chronicle of Higher Education covering innovation in and around academe. Here’s what’s on my mind this week: Can this tiny career college really become ‘America’s work-force... read more

It's been a crazy 5 years for us. The last couple of years under CCI and then 3 years under Zenith. 98% of us have moved on to bigger and better opportunities and a few near retirement age are suffering through uncertainty and financial problems... read more
Install the wrong people with the wrong education background in the wrong places in a business that they have no idea about and let them run wild like they are the leaders at the white house. Lets hire a bunch of teachers with fudged resumes and... read more
The axe will fall Q4 at ECMC corporate. If employees in MN think they are safe, think again great white North.
Last year, about 8,000 veterans got a message in their inboxes telling them they may qualify for a new law that restores education benefits to GI Bill users whose schools have abruptly closed... read more
Sale was finalized, now enrolling new students.
It's next to impossible to teach the entitlement generation how to use their brains to think independently. It's completely impossible to teach that generation how to use common sense and logic to repair anything mechanical or electrical. I'm not... read more
The Wyo Tech peeps in Laramie were so o wrong in everything they did. They did not provide excellent customer service in Financial Aid department like Blairesville and Daytona. Some of the FA reps were good like Lori and Moe. Te admissions team under... read more
Yes folks, its your good pal Mic Drop. Once again bringing you the news and views of ECMC and it's red headed step child "Zenith Education Group" By now you know the Wyotech sale was all smoke and mirrors, typical corporate BS as usual. And if any of... read more
Looks like mic drop was correct, ECMC isn't selling WyoTech they're closing it.
Where did all the people go that were positive WyoTech was staying open?
Once Mathis completes the Due Diligence he will find out this isn't the WyoTech he knew back in 2002. There's a ton more regulations and hoops to jump through plus he has to hire an Independent Monitor for a half million a year.
18 days till the END OF WYOTECH Yehaw!!!

Rumor has it that the Austin campus has a potential buyer. Can anyone confirm?
Count down do Wyo Tech closing!! The funny thing is people actually think they may stay open. Business 101 you make announcement well in advance of closure as once you close you are screwed because news stories hit and competitors use against you... read more

I heard rumblings that they will re open in July? Is that correct or a pipe dream?
Ahhh, spoken by the great LL Cool J. Here's how this little plan will workout. The 3 remaining campuses Tampa - Norcross - Bissonnet will announce teach-out by Q2 of 2019. I attend all the meetings, see all the emails of the new programs, and watch... read more
So - looks like another Town Hall meeting is scheduled in a few weeks. We again get to hear about the financial boom that ECMC is in. Hence they're worth 10 billion in assets. Another comedic finding is how worried Jeremy Wheaton and his legion of... read more
Within a little less than two months the transformation will be complete. Think of how many lives would have not been destroyed if Everest and WyoTech would have just closed three years ago. Such a shame the scam was allowed to go on for three more... read more
Wyotech Laramie not dead yet. More news to follow.
Corinthian Colleges may be gone, but a company that targeted vulnerable people, including vets is still doing bad business. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/lead-generator-quinstreet-preying-vets-misleading-shipping-shaulis/
One trip into a meeting without talking and just listening is all a person needed to see the sink hole coming. WyoTech was guided by people with no experience in the industry it focused on. When a president makes a decision to remove the most... read more
The sad truth is that many of us were laid-off; fired with fake charges and false performance reports; and sent home to work there but slowly "disappeared" into the sunset. My disappearance was about 2 1/2 years ago and although it was a bad... read more
I wish I could feel sorry for the ones losing their jobs now, but I don't. I've been waiting and hoping to see Zenith fail for three years and it was music to my ears when I heard the news in November and have been counting down the months since... read more
It only took three years for ECMC to accomplish what it and Obama set out to do, SHUT THE SCHOOLS DOWN. No loss to tax payers and millions in the pockets of ECMC executives all at the expense of the students and employees. Do you feel used and... read more
