Please don't waste your hard earned money here. This school is a joke and an embarrassment to all other Colleges. I graduated in 2008 and still have NEVER seen my degree. Two weeks before i graduated I went to the finance dept to make sure i was clear to receive it. They informed me i was just fine and all schooling had been paid for. After three weeks of graduation I didn't not receive it so I contacted them and they gave me some B.S story on how I now owe $3000 in tution fees that they some how over looked. They will not send it to me until i now pay this. PLEASE do not attend this fraud of a school.
I graduated from this school back in 2014 and I have yet to find a job in the medical field. Im not saying it CANT be done, but can be extremely difficult. It is overpriced for a diploma program, but I was told the price before I enrolled so that's on me. I know plenty of people I did go to school with who has found jobs, so this is can be a individual thing, or based on being bilingual or more aggressive job seeker. I graduated with a 3.54, and still haven't been fortunate enough. I had SOME pretty good professors but not all. Career services is a joke. Do all your research before enrolling PLEASE! or if you're like me, and are looking into medical assisting, your local community college will probably be a better option. I hope i was of some assistance. and GOOD LUCK!
I graduated from here back in 2004 and it's now 2016 and I still have not found a job in the Medical Field! I'm thankful I have a job but all they did was lie to the students selling false hopes and dreams. Even one of their employees said the same thing!
I attend the school here in Brampton back in 2012 unfortunate the program and the co-op was not very successful and finding a job in that field did not happen you have to at least volunteer with more experience and I try to apply in hospitals and clinics and I have a hard time to get in. It says you need more volunteer experience. So I try to apply in agencies but they do not have only general labor and other industrial activities. I didn't graduate and now I owe lots of money to government and it was a waste of time . My CPR expire and I wont be able to renew it's too expensive and have do it all over again. Even my classmates too they cannot find a job in the medical field and some of them drop out because it was a waste of money... and now the time I drop out they closed it do to number of student drop out. Now all I want to do is pay off my student loan and change my career.... maybe I want to do something in writing stories or doing stuff in the computers. I just need to find my way out.of this situation....
Your there to pretty much teach yourself. If your not there to make friends & be talkative to others, your going to fail. They want you to be social like a high schooler. Good luck hearing your instructor in class. Good luck if your not social and you miss a day, to figure it out on your own, nobody will help you with what you missed. They will hold you back, make sure you fail at MOD so you have to retake them. They don't care about your financial situation. I haven't ate myself in over a week. If your a smoker & you accidentally forget your lighter in your pocket, you'll be accused as a drug addict. Talk a lot and be rude to others and this college will love you. If you go to try your heart out, you'll be made fun of, like I have been, was supposed to be my 4th mod, but I get to retake this mod due to a medical deal, I missed part of a week. Others go on vacation for a week or more & don't have to retake the mod. Shows be rude, talk a lot, you'll pass this college in a heart beat
If I could give 0 stars I would. This school was horrible they forced all students into a loan with a 9.9% interest rate. Every student at the school had this loan. You had to pay the monthly fee while in school which was another downfall. I was sent on multiple interviews for the wrong positions and the school tried to take credit when I was hired off my externship site. Everything you learn in school does not apply to what you do when you get out of school.
Poorest customer service. Don't understand people period. After weeks of attending than announced its closing I attempted multiple times to reach anyone there but no one every responded except for one over text message saying this is not her fault. Unprofessional. Wasted my time not happy at all.
Terrible management, they were so unorganized they even lost our papers, staff was horrible. They fired our teacher over night.. No one liked her anyway, she always had "favorites" - people who bring her coffee and kiss her behind. I was on the honor roll the whole time I was there until they fired my instructor and made me switch to the other class which i could not understand because she did everything differently. Also the school closed in like 2 months, how does a school even move just like that? They don't help you with your job afterwards like they say they would.. Even with my extern site, they had me quit both of my jobs two weeks before finishing school because they wanted me to be ready to go straight to extern, but I waited an extra two weeks until starting my extern site.. That's a whole month I could have gotten paid for. I have bills to pay like the stupid student loan I have now because I decided to go there, worst decision I've ever made my whole life! As far as the job is, they don't help you with that neither. They will tell you that they are working on it but wont do anything. I got my job by myself and I take full credit for it. They were so messy the DOH is still missing papers from my application that they sent in so now my "certification" is still pending until they have it. If I knew better, I wouldn't have wasted my money on these programs. AND they are always sending me to voicemail when ever I call!!
When I signed up to go to Everest I was guaranteed that the job placement center would help me find a job as a Medical Assistant even though I have a DV (Domestic Violence) on my record. I proceeded with the course and graduated in May of 2007. I found the places that were hiring on my own but I was never hired because of my background. I tried to get help through the job placement center and this is the help I got they never helped me with my resume, never helped with the interview process which I was promised and I asked them to help with finding me a job their answer was the jobs are listed in the board over there. I looked for about 2 years and went back to what I was doing before which was Finances. I feel since I was lied to from the get go I shouldn't have to pay for my loans since it is completely useless to me.
So sad it closed, but I had great teachers and great training I was proud to get a diploma from there I also had great marks Most of the students where great some just took the course and didn't make but about 80% did and I've had a job from day 1 after completing my course you usually get your career from placements, they did help you with your resume and fax off job also had you attend career job fairs. They did a great job at Kitchener location.... I'm tired I hearing all negative about this college.
