FTC shuts down academic program and certifications. Pacific Medical Training offers relief.

Starting today, Pacific Medical Training is offering assistance to students affected by a recent court judgment.

November 30, 2016, the US District Court of Arizona ordered a judgment of $8,550,840 against Stepping Stonez Development, LLC, Intentional Growth, LLC, and their successors and assigns, and Stephen J. Remley, and any other name by which he may be known. This is in response to a Federal Trade Commission (FTC) complaint earlier this year. The court found that the defendants “participated in deceptive acts and practices in violation of Section 5 of the FTC Act, 15 U.S.C. § 45, in connection with the marketing and sale of academic degrees and certification programs.”

In February 2016, the FTC stated that filings in both this and another case “point to numerous consumers who sought to use the diplomas they received from the defendants to get jobs, apply for college and even join the military, only to find out that their diplomas were not recognized.”

The court ordered that the defendants are permanently restrained from selling academic degree or certification programs, among other things. Now, anyone having taken courses from the defendants may find that their credentials hold no value to employers.

In court filings, several websites were identified as being used by the defendant. Anyone receiving certification from the sites listed below may be affected:
