Philadelphia Technician Training Institute (PTTI) has set forth this policy to codify and clarify our ethics standard concerning education loan providers (lenders).

  • Preferred” lender lists and endorsements of lenders:  PTTI will not create, maintain, or distribute any listing of “preferred” or “recommended” education loan providers, nor will school staff endorse any particular third-party private education materials on behalf thereof.
  • Promotion of Education Loans:  PTTI does not engage in a “revenue sharing” arrangement with any private education loan provider nor enter into any arrangement designed to promote the products, services, and/or public image of such entities.
  • Non-Discrimination in Loan Certification: The Financial Aid Office will certify any private education loan upon request for any eligible student through any private education loan provider.  Financial Aid staff will neither favor nor discriminate against any particular provider in giving counsel to student and parent borrowers.  However, nothing in this policy shall be construed to prevent Financial Aid Office personnel from giving students and parents’ good counsel to assist the borrower in making an educated loan product/lender choice.

  • Prohibition Against Gifts:  Neither PTTI nor any of its employees (or their family members) will accept any gift, gratuity, favor, discount, entertainment, hospitality, benefit, or any other item from any private education loan provider.  Nothing in this section shall be construed as prohibiting PTTI employees from conducting normal banking business with a lending institution that is also an education loan provider; or receiving discounts, premiums, or gifts that are available to the general public based upon that normal banking business.
  • Contracting Arrangements/Advisory Groups:  PTTI employees may not accept from any private education loan provider any type of fee, payment, expense reimbursement, or other financial benefits as compensation for consulting advisory, or other services provided relating to education loans.
  • Staffing Assistance:  PTTI does not utilize private education loan provider staff to work in our offices, nor will we allow them to perform the work of school personnel in other locations.

  • Policy Against Discriminatory Harassment:  This policy applies to all members of the PTTI community, PTTI students, including employees, independent contractors and their employees, and volunteers. It applies not only to the treatment of subordinates and co-workers, but also to interactions with others who visit or work at or with the PTTI. This policy defines discriminatory harassment, addresses the rights and responsibilities of the members of the PTTI community, and describes how to avoid and report discriminatory harassment.
  • PTTI Sexual Misconduct Policy:  Philadelphia Technician Training Institute has zero tolerance for any form of sexual misconduct. Any employee, student, volunteer or contractor who commits sexual violence, sexual harassment or stalking against another member of the PTTI community will be appropriately disciplined. Additionally, the policy recognizes that there are various types of violence that members of our community may be exposed to on and off campus. For this reason, the policy also addresses domestic violence and dating violence. PTTI’s Sexual Misconduct Policy will explain various types of misconduct, reporting options, staff response to reports and services in place for victims.
