State Revokes Approval For Career School Programs

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The Texas Workforce Commission is revoking the certificates of approval for 22 programs taught at career schools run by ATI Enterprises, Inc.

The agency said Tuesday the company misreported the employment rates of graduates in those programs, with a review finding rates below 60 percent minimum rate.

The agency is requiring that ATI either refund tuition of those enrolled in the programs or offer them options to complete their training in compliance TWC.

TWC has set terms, agreed to by ATI, that require it to ensure accurate reporting of graduate employment rates in the future.

ATI said that they've taken the matter seriously and worked with the agency to come to an agreement. They say they will also continue to teach students in those programs and seek re-approval.
