There has been a big debate in the recent past on the nature of some academic qualifications that are offered at out public universities. Many have raised a point of concern on the school based programs. Even the lecturers employed to teach courses in these programs will tell you that the quality of the students is unbelievably low and the library staff will openly tell you that school based students generally avoid books and stick to their manuals.

The jury is out there on the worthiness of the school based degrees but the truth is that not all people are destined to get degrees. Some will suffice with a diploma. Some will do with a certificate and some will be successful without ever going to college like Branson or Mwangi who is building yet another flat block along Jogoo Road.

The market has put a premium on papers and DALC has shamelessly milked this by;

a) Claiming that certificates are meaningless without recognition

b) Claiming that certificates are useless

c) Projecting that certificates are going to become obsolete in the near future

d)Flaunting the fact that the certificates come from the UK

DALC has successfully combined several tactics to make sure that people hungry for Diploma's quench their thirst at DALC. At DALC Education, a diploma can take a short time such as 6 months.

AsK a Kenya Polytechnic fellow to complete a diploma in 6 months and he will think you are mad. The truth is that Diploma's are really not that short. Do not believe DALC's lies especially when Oborah says;

· These days , education has changed and people are focusing and specialising

· Kenya Poly are using old systems from the colonial era

· The African Education system has been left behind, that is why we lag in development

· Why do you need to spend 3 years to do a diploma?

· DALC takes shorter because it is 22nd century education

· bla bla bla

What DALC is doing is making diplomas worthless by putting one Business Administration diploma holder from a national polytechnic on the same platform with its dubious CAM/OXIM diploma holders. The people who go through the polys get past a rigorous system, while DALC's advanced 22nd century system takes you only 6 months. Never mind that you have lessons that are 2 hours long twice a week.

Diplomas have never been so easy to get. If you get an E in your KCSE, go to DALC. They will put you through their accelerated bridging course that should take you 3 months. After that, they will find your talent which will always lead you to starting a diploma in business, computing or education. 6 months down the road you have a shiny new diploma. The Kenya Poly student on the other hand, will be getting through his first year. Tell me, who would you hire?

We have students going through the Diplomas so fast, that a fellow who got a C mean grade gets an advanced diploma (insert course here) in a record 6 months. Take note that this is the CAM/OXIM advanced diploma. From C plain to advanced diploma inn just 6 months. If this is not milling diplomas, tell me what is. During the 6 months, the student will have researched and compiled 10 case studies and cover the syllabus (which is probably downloaded from some website). That is one hell of a shortcut that will definitely appeal to greedy Kenyans looking for a quick way to get quick diplomas.

As you are all aware, DALC promises its diploma holders UPGRADES to degrees to ensure that they take every cent from you in the whole process and leave you with a bunch of worthless diplomas that have non existent UK addresses. That my friends, is how DALC is soiling the diploma by giving it to every Humphrey, Peter, and Faith as long as they have the money to pay the school fees. After all, Oborah likes to say that failing your KCSE does not mean you are stupid. He is some sort of miracle worker who makes a D- holder achieve a Diploma with distinction in just a quick 6 months.

Visit a DALC centre and ask the funny people at the front desk.
