RALEIGH, N.C. -

North Carolina's attorney general has told a for-profit educational company that charged students hundreds of dollars for health care courses even after losing its license to stop offering classes. 

Wake County Superior Court Judge Howard S. Manning granted Attorney General Roy Cooper's request on Monday for an order temporarily barring Thomas Healthcare Institute, Inc. and its owners from advertising or offering educational products or services. 

According to Cooper's complaint, the N.C. Board of Community Colleges revoked the institute's license to teach in February for failing to meet required instructional and financial standards. Even without the license, Cooper said Thomas Healthcare Institute continued to advertise and offer vocational and exam preparation courses in Greensboro and Raleigh. 

Cooper wants a permanent ban on the company's deceptive practices and refunds for students.
