Trillium College-Oshawa Campus
Trillium College at the Oshawa campus has been the greatest experience! I am currently enrolled in the Dental Assisting Program and I absolutely love it. My teacher is amazing she is very smart, kind and helpful in every aspect of dental and more. Also all of the staff is kind, caring, and always puts a smile on my face! Thank you Trillium College for this great experience! :)

Why I love Trillium College
I love Trillium College. I am currently enrolled in the Medical Office Assistant program. Trillium College offers a fast pace environment. This means I will graduate and obtain a career sooner! The teachers here are amazing and I cannot say enough good things about our MOA instructor. She is fantastic. She makes learning fun and makes me want to come to class each day. Our classroom size is small is there is lots of one-on-one learning. Trillium College makes it easy for me to succeed.

PSW course
Great location, staff are very friendly, professional and helpful. The PSW teacher is knowledgeable, and goes the extra mile to ensure you understand the course information. I believe the school truly cares that you succeed with your career and that your experience is enjoyable.

This is the most horrible "education" experience I have ever had. Since day one, it has been shady. Do not be fooled by their "niceness" it's all FAKE. The staff here are - of course - very nice when you first come in, they want your money and OSAP's money. DO NOT BE FOOLED. This school is the most disorganized and rude group of individuals I have ever had the misfortune of coming into contact with. To start off, I complained about the fact that the classroom has no air conditioning. It was 30 degrees in there every single day and they assured me they would fix it and it has never happened (in two months, nothing is done). Next, the instructor, Dina, can't even speak proper English and lacks common sense with grammar and mathematical skills and gives incorrect or out of date facts. The way she pronounces words is often corrected by students, and she can't even say some common English language words, she admitted to me that she gave the class general marks on more than one assignment and offered to bump up my mark by 5% when I was unhappy with it - which I objected to and said I want the mark I deserved for the work I did, she said Dalton McGuinty was the premier of Toronto, and the Essential Skills and all other following courses are COMPLETELY irrelevant to Dental Assisting. I approached Olga, the program director, and Dina both about our books being five years out of date and stating incorrect Canadian laws that were updated in February of this year, and they both acknowledged it and told me the write the out of date, incorrect laws in a test as per the book instead of the actual new Canadian standard law. Dina has inverted numbers or miscalculated more time than I can count in Technical Math. She never replies to emails, or waits days and days to give a half response. Not only this, but since my complaints on these school matters, Olga has done everything in her power to bully me and try to get me to withdraw from the program. She has insulted my intelligence, denied my learning disability, denied me any extra help or extra explanation on things if I have asked her or Dina, they refuse to accept my transcripts from high school as sufficient proof of a learning disability, despite my enrolment in special education courses and despite Olga stating that was enough proof and then going back on her word once I actually showed her evidence of it, they have now told me I cannot come to school until I have documentation of my disability, and claim that Karla (the person who enrolled me) and Ryan (the financial administrator) both told me I needed to bring in this document; which Ryan denies saying and Karla has since been fired for misconduct. Furthermore, I brought in everything that was on the list of requirements when I registered including police check, immunization records, vaccination progress and TB test progress, high school transcripts, tax returns, and a void cheque, so why would I not bring in a piece of documentation if I was told to and if it would have further benefited my educational experience? Because they told me my transcripts were sufficient, that's why. Now I can't even come to the school because they will yell in my face in front of the entire school and threaten to call the police. I haven't even done anything wrong, and yes, I did yell at Olga in a meeting, but that is because she was speaking with Sherida (another woman who enrols students) about my "lack of intelligence" right in front of me, as though I was not in the room, they said they can't get through to me, etc., etc. I was in class on my calculator and Dina yelled at me saying it was a cell phone until I showed her otherwise and the school said she is allowed to yell at me, single me out in the class and verbally abuse me in front of everyone because she is an "authority figure". NO! This is NOT the way you run a school. I have two diplomas from previous post-secondary educational training in which I graduated with honours. I still communicate with my teachers from my previous college and I have used them as references for jobs. I'd love it if I could be in my original field, but there are no jobs so I thought this would be a better option. Clearly not. Do NOT go to this school unless you want a horrible nightmare and to be treated like an income source, money grab. This school is a scam! They make me sick! I am processing a complaint with the school and the Ministry of Education if they do not reimburse my tuition to me. I'm so angry and stressed, my stomach is in knots every day! I've invested thousands of dollars into something I wish I could take back. I regret ever registering at this horrible, nightmare of a school!

I know exactly who this is...I have a friend still in that class, you were rude and disrespected everybody in the class. You laughed out loud at other student's with accents and were a bully.

I agree about Olga but I had Dina last year for Essential Skills, ok her English is not perfect but she's the nicest, sweetest most patient lady, no way she yelled at you.

You never studied and was failing and when they put you on notice You stood outside the school on the sidewalk swearing and yelling at everyone for like an hour.

You have 2 diplomas so why were you at Trillium hmmm? I agree with the other comments about the administration being horrible and yes it is a disorganized mess but it's not kindergarten, stop acting like a spoiled brat.
Comment by trilliumcollegesucks on Sep 10, 2015
Whoever this is, you know absolutely nothing about me or the things I endured from this school or why I was yelling about the things they did to me. I currently have the MPP office on my side and I received an entire full refund from the school for their behaviour, despite my two months to going to classes. I was not failing, actually, but thank you. And I do have two diplomas from Georgian College in Barrie. I am in the school because there were no jobs in the field that I had gained my previous education in. So thank you. Kindly fuck off until you get your facts straight. I am anything but a spoiled brat and I support myself completely and have for years. Again, kindly fuck right off. Thanks.

All I can say is, if a school that WANTS YOUR MONEY kicks you out and gives you your money
Comment by trilliumcollegesucks on Sep 12, 2015
Lol you know nothing. NO ONE kicked me out. The MPP office demanded I receive a full refund after they infringed on my human rights. Again, kindly fuck off you uneducated moron :)

Trillium College St. Catherines
I am presently attending this school and finding it is a joke. They make us pay 15 grand for the full course (at least the one I am in) that lasts 45 weeks minus 7 weeks for breaks. The focus seems to be on group work presentations when in future jobs I can see single presentations being valuable but not group presentations. Some courses we pay for the books and don’t get them on time for classes or for some classes we don’t use at all.Half the psychology book(148.00 on Amazon which is always the cheaper choice) was not even needed to know for exams we spent more time writing notes that were not needed. I shudder to think how much they charged us for that book in school. They take daily attendance when you arrive and when you leave because the focus is on attendance cause thats how they are funded,never mind of the lack of valuable education. Its like a giant daycare for adults we are paying for basically.I. f you miss 20% of school they kick you out because they are accountable for the funding to be given. Forget the fact that things happen like car breaks down, being sick, and things happening in your life. They add to your daily stres for their benefit. The ipads some students get don’t come in boxes and seem to be from drop out students and some are refurbished ones. Some classes that get the used ones find that they are 1st gen ipads which are old and are charged the same amount as new ones.Ipad cases hard to find since no one makes cases for older generations anymore. the education from private career colleges are not recognized by some institutions especially if you want to be in social work. I am stuck cause i cant afford to leave and be charged this outrageous amount. I am planning on going to a better school Mohawk in 2015 which has no issue and is not in just for the money. The education I got here is not recognized but they continue to tell me it is... Liars!! So i will use it for a better job for the meanwhile. A look forward to next year with better education.

Experience at Trillium College
I am in the Network Administration course at the Peterborough campus. I am graduating on December 5th 2014. When I started this course I was barely able to start a computer, with Rick's support (pushing) I have not only learned about computers I am now able to confidently go out into the world and finally attain the job I want. There have been ups and downs throughout the last 42 weeks but at the end of the day I have my certifications and that is what I came here for. I would like to take this opportunity to thank not only Rick, but others as well. Katlyn, who always had a smile when we came in, Tracey, who as academic coordinator was there to assist when things seemed to be getting rough. Ashley, the Campus Manager, who seemed almost happier than us when we achieved the certifications. Thank you all for your support throughout this journey, I am proud to call myself a Trillium College Graduate

Ripped Off & Pissed Off
I took the CSW program based on a recommendation from a friend. I wasn't sure about Trillium, but talked to one of the teachers. He was great. His positive attitude and knowledge of the field I was signing up for sold me on Trillium. But when classes started they stuck me with another guy, Mike. He was nice, but really doesn't know how to teach. My friend had the other teacher, Mr. Wayne and she loved it. I wanted to switch classes but was told I couldnt.

OSAP is a nightmare. I highly recommend that you check the math carefully. I found many errors, two of which they refuse to correct. Because of this I will be paying thousands more than I should have to. They are ripping you off and liningbtheir pockets.

I tried to make an appointment with Naomi who is the campus principal. She missed our appointment three times. When i complained about this she told me that sometimes in the business world appointments get cancelled. I think if a business puts off its customers pretty soon they don't have a business. Naomi is rude and condenscending and basically tells you to F. Off with a smile on her face.

Maureen, the front desk staff is very nice but her coworker frannie is rude. She makes sure you don't get to see the boss.

If you are looking for excellent teaching, people who will listen and a school that is more interested in you than your money, go somewhere else. You have been warned.
makes sure you can't
get to Naomi.

Terrible, horrible management, scams!
I was a student since Sept 2013. The office management has been terrible since the first day I have arrived. The admissions want you to sign up for money in their bank. The instructors are excellent and have no complaints. I have maintained 90%+ throughout the months I have been there. I left for two months for an overseas job and returned in June. I had attended back into my program. Trillium Oshawa had informed me that I will be graduating on time after making up the courses I missed. They gave me a set date of Nov 2014. They then changed it to June 2015 because of the "change" in schedule. I have been lead on for 4 weeks knowing that I would graduate. Tammy, the campus manager at Trillium is rude and was no help. I then filed a complaint to Martin Durlock, the front office. He never returned my calls or emails for three weeks. He finally contacted me to set up an appointment with Tammy and the Oshawa team. I waited two hours for him, till he calls and says "he's busy with other things." I came all the way from Markham to meet with him and Oshawa management. Bill, is the man in charged for the schedule kept on going back and forth with the finish date. He put me through a lot in the month. Knowing the graduate date, Nov 2014, I had to resign from my full time job because of attending Trillium Full time. I had jobs with the school board ready for me by Christmas time. I now withdrawn from Trillium and I am really disgusted with their management. Please stay away from there.

A school that cares
I had a small issue with the school. I emailed the COO on his special student email and it was resolved right away. You know it's a good place when the COO talks directly with the students because he wants to know that they are happy and doing good. Wish all the staff were the same. A few need a lesson from him.

St. Catherines campus needs better wifi. But I'm happy with my decision to go here.

Thank you Trillium College
My story is like everyone else's. I needed to change my life because I was in a dead end job, dead end relationship, and was totally broke. I didn't know what to do or where to go. I stumbled on trillium through a friend that finished PSW and got her new job before she even graduated. I has some ups and downs during school. I was evicted, had to fight for custody of my 5 yr old, and even a struggled in some courses to hang on. I'm happy to say that I'm 4 weeks from finishing my PSW course and already got hired by my placement. $22/hour is more than I've ever made in my life. I'm now looking for my own apartment to share with my kid.

Trillium was there every step of the way. When I fell, they helped me get up. When I was upset, they made me smile. Most important, they taught me what I needed to become a great PSW. Thank you Trillium College.
