What the fake testimonials or the training material?

Re: Sky Hamilton

reselling training material on that is out of date, and it costs less to get the up to date material from official sources.

Depends on copyright etc but they'll probably get away with it if indeed that's what they are doing. Faking testimonials is more serious, they are jailing people in the US for pulling the same crap.

Re: Sky Hamilton

Are you from the US then?

say CISI (chartered institute for investment and savings) found out, surely they would be pissed as SkyHamilton are essentially providing the wrong information which goes against what CISI stand for and they taking money away from CISI who actually produce this material?

Re: Sky Hamilton

I'm not from the US, you could well be right about CISI, worth looking into. I also read that the FTC can impose $16,000 a day fines for misleading marketing. However these guys are in the UK where these things are sadly not pursued with the same vigour. We do have legislation called the Fraud Act which could be applied to this sort of thing but rarely is.

CISI have a list of accredited training providers and you guessed it neither Sky Hamilton or Learn Express are on it.

CISI
