Absolutely horrible. I quickly realized high school upgrading classes are for people who recently took the class and wanted get better grades. It’s been 20 yrs since I was in school and was hoping to learn something but the teachers only wanted to talk soccer. I tried multiple times to get help from my teacher and was told to get a tutor. I paid a lot of money and took a lot of my time to take this course only to realize I’ve been duped. That the teacher in the class isn’t there to help but to fill a seat with a warm butt. I complained and tried to get my money back but it was too late they said. And being behind with a teacher who won’t teach or help…I dropped out and the experience stopped me from taking any education classes. I only wish when I called to sign up that sait wouldn’t lie to you but say “it’s only to refresh if you just took the course last term. Don’t expect to be taught anything but the latest soccer scores.”

I took the Engineering Design and Drafting Technology program. The education was second to none. I would highly recommend SAIT to anyone
