CleanEdison offers courses and then cancels them. They refuse to refund you your money! What a ripoff!

I enrolled in a CleanEdison course that was postponed two times. I cancelled my enrollment and accepted their offer of a full refund. BUT, I have never received the refund. They do not return my phone calls. I think these people are running an organized training scam and a rip-off. There is no other way to account for this.

I used to work at CleanEdison. It was founded in Late 2008/Early 2009 with the goal of MAKING MONEY off of the LEED exam prep industry since the exam was about to change and get harder and many people were scrambling to take it. The founder, Avi Yashchin had worked at Lehman Brothers, and had no background in sustainability or green buildings. I would say more but he is the type of individual who would sue for defamation of character. All I can say is that the two previous comments do not surprise me.

Not only I managed to enjoy the course and learned a lot, but I also passed my exam and saved money. What else could you ask for? CleanEdison’s prices are unbeatable, the courses are well-organized, teachers knowledgeable.

Having a lot experience with CleanEdison and its CEO I need to agree. They are bridge-burners and carpetbaggers, total pirates.

WOW! It seems like we are talking about two totally different companies here. I took a solar pv bootcamp class earlier this year and had a good experience. They let me know what I was getting into before I paid and did not have to cancel classes or any of that. It seems like they have changed ALOT for the better from what you guys say.

Yeah used to work there it's very much a start up environment. Yes the CEO is a d bag kind of individual and very money hungry but I guess that's the way the cookie crumbles
