Graduation Year: 2014

Don't do PTA program at San Bernardino. Instruction is poor, doing "busy work" as stated by one instructor instead of doing productive work that relates to our studies. Spend more time teaching each other and always conflicting answers by instructors where they deny they said the wrong thing. The "structure" of the program is to set is up for failure. This last term, they changed the grading scale as compared to other terms. Can they really do that? If complaints are presented the trend is that the student gets dropped, by having stricter grading on papers or practicals. Since when is it a great idea having someone never in lab or lectures come in to grade practicals? Classes are inconsistent, dates changed with disregard on student's schedule. Time management is horrible, instructors are trying to figure out lesson plan minutes before. Degrading feeling by least 2 instructors, never seeming to answer questions directly. Bottom line, waste of money and time. For the amount of money you pay, instruction is poor and student's rely on each other and youtube. We are denied extra time in lab to practice, the "extra time" we get is to rush to get our check offs done, for during the actual lab, we do busy work and are given little to no feedback. Look elsewhere for the PTA program. Concorde is a school about $$$, pushing student's like cattle and taking money, the turnover on careers after graduation is low, based on stats I've seen and people I know who have gone through the program. I see every day, New recruits painting a nice picture, but be aware looks can be deceiving. The PTAprogram in San Bernardino is alone, complaints are not heard, president of the campus scrutinizes perhaps for we don't even belong there.

I attend Concorde and completed my program in August 2012. The School, Staffing and intructors are GREAT!! I had such a great time when i was there. I will be returning.. thinking about the Respitory Therpist program.. because the pay is a lot more then a PCT.. don't get me wrong i enjoyed every bit of the pct program and working as one.. but i would like a little more pay.

Degree: Allied Health and Medical Assisting Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

I've been attending Concorde since September and so far I have not one complaint. Only Complaint i do have is the childish young adults there. Other than that the instructors I have had so far are amazing teachers and I'm learning a lot something i couldn't do in a really large environment.

Degree: Surgical Technology/Technologist

Started off good, great instructors, then when downhill when the "clinical" part started. Don't dare complain about anything or the school will threaten to take you off your clinical site and not let you graduate. Big debt, bad education. Would not recommend Surg Technology and wish I had gone to a "real college" instead. Months after graduating, still no job and the school never contacts me to help in my job search. A joke.

Degree: Respiratory Therapy

Bottom line- money. That is the priority. Not your degree or education. Rip off.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014

The facility there makes me feel welcomed, and part of the school. You are never alone at this school. I feel comfortable, and the campus is one big family.

I couldn't have made a better choice than Concorde. I know I'm in good hands. All the staff makes you comfortable and they are attentive to all your needs.

Degree: Licensed Vocational Nurse
Graduation Year: 2014

I am currently a student in the evening nursing program. The instructors for first term are great. They are very helpful and friendly. The overall environment of the school is good. The location is convenient and I like that the classes are short and to the point.
