SPOKANE, Wash. - A local school that provides accreditation for CNA's, EMT's and CPR training is closing up. The company "Aimed", located at east Boone, closed it's doors to students on Monday telling them that classes were canceled due to financial problems.
Employees of the company say owner Cullen Fowler had moved to Oklahoma. Fowler said via phone on Wednesday that he gave up his director title last month leaving others in charge. There was confusion as to who was really in charge.
A property manager across the street says Aimed is behind on rent. Other neighboring businesses says the closure seems shady.
According to workforce training via email: Two teachers have agreed, without pay, to complete the program training for the students. The students who have enrolled but not taken classes yet are eligible for refunds for any tuition paid to the school through a trust fund established by all regulated private schools in Washington.
The fate of the students will be decided on state approval. Aimed is no longer in good standing with the Better Business Bureau.
