AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The Texas Workforce Commission has ordered
a company that runs 16 careers schools to halt new enrollment and
complete training programs for current students.

A spokesman for ATI Enterprises Inc. says the company would
provide a statement Friday. Brandon Dowdy declined additional
comment Thursday to The Associated Press.

The commission in April announced the company had been put on
probation and required an outside auditor to review 2010 placement
results. TWC on Wednesday issued a notice of intent to revoke ATI's
certificates of approval.

The order follows a yearlong investigation by WFAA-TV on the
accuracy of ATI's employment and job placement claims.

The company operates eight ATI Career Training Centers, six
South Texas Vocational Technical Institutes, the ATI Technical
Training Center and the Dallas Nursing Institute.
