The recruiter was so nice and enthusiastic. It gave me a positive feeling so I decided to attend remington in Nashville. It was a 9 month program. At 6 months into it, one of the instructors decided to share with us that not only is it not necessary to go to college to be a dental assistant, the school is not accredited! Meaning we couldn't transfer the "fake" credits. Some students didn't return after that, I wish I wouldn't have but I kept going. Earning a 4.0 during the entire program and graduating, you could imagine my disappointment and embarrassment when every dentist office I applied to pitifully told me that they like to train their employees and that going to school was a waist of time, especially remington! I have a great job now but it has nothing to do with dental assisting. These schools are just about making money! It's best to go to a community college.

The campus I attended is no longer open. They were not helpful in accommodating life changing events and changed the program making certifications no longer attainable. The teachers, all very nice, however didn't know the material. I don't even know the information needed to obtain a job in the computer industry.

Being the first in my family to attend college and persue my education, I was excited. I wanted to attend a well know school and a school near my home. I saw commercials about Remington, so I thought that was a good choice. Fast Forward. During my 8-9 months at Remington I felt used for money and cheated out of learning what I needed to know to obtain a job. Remington offered G.E.D classes, but they were poorly taught. Half of the time we stood outside a classroom to a locked door not knowing what class we were in. Several teachers were quiting or being fired. I was so close to graduration, but I was not comfortable or mentally fullfilled with anything I did learn. Remington enrolled more younger students that were so immature, always fighting and not totally focused why they were there. I was tempted to leave the school because of the unorganization and care for the students. I did graduate only, because another student saw how dissapointed I was and told me to finish and take what ever I learned. So, I graduated with "NO" G.E.D and very unfullfilled.

I worked at Remington in Garland for 5 years. Do not waste your time or money.

Go to a real college. No this one.

I didnt learn anything from this experience other than to never trust a recruiter..never got a job. They said they would help me find a job in my area but kept trying to send me job opportunities miles away. I would ask questions and the teachers didnt know the answers. They did very little to try to answer them. BIG waist of my time but most importantly my money. Very costly mistake..VERY costly. They said if you missed during the day you could come at night but they werent even on the same chapter. One teacher was really good, Mr Newburn, but the other 3 were horrible. Sure wish i could remember their names but they either read the book word for word as if we couldnt do that on our own, taught us nothing but abbreviations, or goofed off the whole time. I RECOMMEND YOU RUN FAR AWAY FROM THIS SCHOOL LOL 4REAL!!!

Please please do not attend Remington College, they are in it to make money off of you they have no interest in your education at all. Please be on the look for a CSR named Avernique at Remington Greenspoint in Houston she is the absolute worst. She talks down to certain students and belittles them behind their backs. Please avoid Remington College!!!!!!

School was fine but the problem is I passed my CPC exam on the first try and no one will hire die to a lack of coding experience. It turns out my Remington diploma means NOTHING to employers. I am having to go back to school now because I can't get a job as a CPC-A. People DON'T DO IT. YOU WILL BE SORRY if you waste your time like this and still have to pay back a loan with no job or even a hope of having a coding job. Now I have to go back to school and get the kind of education employers will take seriously.

If you passed that exam on the first try shows that you had excellent instruction and great exam prep. That exam is hard...I passed after a second attempt. I find it HARD to believe you are not able to find a job. The school where you graduated from has NOTHING to do with that certification. I know companies that hire with the CPC-A certification with no experience needed. That certification speaks for itself. I don't care where you went to school. Try to get your foot in the door. Insurance clerk, verification clerk, front desk person....get your foot in the door and some office experience. That will help. I see jobs ALL the time for at hospitals doing the very things you learned at Remington college.

You have to be aggressive in your job hunting skills vs. waiting for the school to find jobs for you? Medical billing and coding jobs are in abundance. Do you attend the chapter meetings with AAPC? Networking to meet other who will be glad to hire a CPC-A. Are you active in the chapter to get your name out there? AAPC post job openings all the time...at every meeting. Recruiters are there..managers are there, billing companies. I find that very hard to believe.

Going back to school is your choice, but that credential behind your name speaks volumes about you and the institution that helped you get it. When employers see that CPC-A, they could care less where you went to school.

They see you are CERTIFIED....and that's what matters.

I wish this were true that people see certified and that is what matters. I have a edge because I went to Remington and also used the study guide on the AAPC web site. The edge I have from attending Remington is that all the terms and processes of coding are familiar to me. I must say I could not have done this without the classes And the study guide. I must emphasize I could not have passed without the study guide and taking 6 weeks to practice coding every day before taking the test. I am not meaning to trash Remington. Then again, I can't ignore the reaction employers have when I tell them where I went to school even though I am certified. They may favor a different school or have their own personal reasons for this. My advice is to check around to see what school potential employers recommend for your education before going 9,000 in debt. I have experienced some discouragement but there is no way I am giving up.

I went to Remington to try and get my certification for pharmacy tech. The teachers were not much help. My classes were suppose to be small for better one on one teachings but they weren't. They promised me a free certification test after i finished the program which i never got. But they sure were eager to get their money one way or another.

I personally did not enjoy my experience at this school in Nashville TN. There is no way to keep up with your own grades. They don't have any online systems to check grades or homework from home. The School tuition is way to high not to have online systems for student I personal wouldn't recommend this school to no one. Teachers were nice but work was done out of work books all the time. I felt like I wasn't learning anything at times. Many student I started class with dropped out the very first week.

This was indeed the worst school anyone could ever attend their higher than most school. The staff treat you like your still attending grade school. they scream at you as if you was there child. We are using a program called moodle and one of my teachers do not know how to even open the program. She told the class she didn't know how so we were all going to pass her class. I didn't like that because I actually wanted to learn the material. I do not recommend this school to anybody this is your warning. They do not transfer credit. most jobs donot hire anyone with a Remington diploma.
