1. Do I have to pay LHPU if I get a job outside the controls industry?  Do I have to pay LHPU if LHPU does not help me find a job?
    Yes.  LHPU is an educational institution.  You are paying for valuable embedded controls training which provides you exposure to the necessary skillset you need for the controls engineering industry.


  2. Can you sponsor my STEM OPT?
    No. Per the 24-Month STEM OPT rule that became effective on May 9, 2016, employers may only sponsor their employees. No employer-employee relationship will exist between LHPU and the trainees enrolled in the course. The trainees will not be considered employees, interns, or volunteers. Thus, neither LHP, LHPU, nor its affiliates are permitted to provide FEINs or E-Verify Numbers, or to sponsor STEM OPT for trainees enrolled in LHPU.  For further information, visit www.immigrationinplainenglish.com


  3. How long before I get a job once the course is complete?
    A lot of factors come into play.  The largest hurdle is succeeding in interpersonal skills and nailing your interview.  The needs of your potential employer, such as a filling a vacancy or a relocation package, will affect your start date.  Your success is based on how well you do in our training and your technical skillset.
