Months after the FBI raided two campuses of a technical school, students say they have been left without important documents that would allow them to move forward in their careers.
Agents carted out boxes of records and computers from the Micropower Career Institute's Hauppauge and Mineola campuses in May. They arrested the school's president, Sam Hiranandaney, as well as four other school employees.
According to the criminal complaint, investigators say Micropower may have been falsifying hundreds of attendance records for international students.
The school has programs in IT and certifications in the medical and dental fields.
Two students who completed their classes at the school told News 12 that they are still waiting for their diplomas and a document that states they completed their certified nursing assistant program. Without that signed document, they cannot take their certification exam for the state. Both students say they have attempted to contact the school, but did not get any answers.
News 12 was able to contact the Mineola campus Wednesday. They said they would call the students today to rectify their ongoing issues.
