American Institute Reviews
It's difficult to admit you've been scammed. The sales pitch with an "act now" gimmick should've been my first clue. I was in a difficult point of my life and wanted to make changes. I had a BS and MA, I should have known this was a scam. Truthfully, part of me did know on some level, "but how could this place exist in the open if it weren't on the up-and-up?" I thought erroneously. Their main focus is attracting new students/marks and their career placement is laughable at best. I would definitely advise any potential student to choose a different school.
American Institutes a great school the classes are very hands on.. All the teachers are very passionate about what they do you can tell they really want the best for their students.They really work to help pass on their experience to you in the classes.
American Institute Toms River I am a graduate of AI Toms River. I can not express how wonderful this school was for me. I started there needing a career, sick of working in the food industry. I am a mother of 2 and needed some where with night classes. The teachers and counselors are supportive and go above and beyond to help you succeed. After I graduated the career counselor helped me with my resume and job placement. The instructors set you up for success in your field, and exams in school, and state exams. With the test prep I received I passed my radiology boards the first time! I can not Thank this school enough. They helped change my life for the better.
Although I was successful, I realized too late that the reason why I was successful was because of my own perseverance and want to be in the field. It's like, this was just a way for me to get 8 months to take some time off of work and actually study. The instructor was nice, but it was obvious that he was not cut out to be a teacher. The books provided were not up to date and I had a lot of trouble with the poor netbooks supplied so that you can do your "Work". Overall, the American Institute Clifton NJ Campus is a horrible school to attend. If you're going to spend money, go to a community college, take an Information Technology course and gain exposure to theory while working on Networking at home. Afterwards, try keeping up to date with the field via email subscriptions to Tech DLs like SANS. I hope this review helps people out in the future because I had to pay off a loan that ultimately meant nothing for my education.
This school is a joke. The program left us completely unprepared. We did not get a clinical rotation so we have no experience outside of a classroom. They promise to help you find a job but then never follow through. I would never recommend this program to anyone.
This program was a joke. I would not recommend this school at all. The instructor taught us out dated and incorrect information. We were unprepared for our clinical rotations. I couldn't wait to be done with this program. I would recommend finding another program.
I really enjoy this school so much :D Everyone is so friendly and everyone is willing to help if needed. I am in the dental assisting course in the morning. You won't regret coming here :D so much competition but AI in Somerset wins it all! God bless and Good luck everyone!
Worst school ever. W Hartford CT CNS IT is what it is now.... The rip us out our money.In a class for long periods of time. It take almost the whole class time to get through one little assignment. This school has more lunch breaks than I do when Im at work. No computers to work with.
This place is horrible the staff are not on the same page, the classroom looks nice at first. but it is a joke I should have listened, they will lie to you to get what they want their staff are jokes and the school looks like it is just a rented out building they teach yea but getting a job from here is laughable. DO NOT GO HERE there are better ways to waste your money.
This school is horrible. I would never recommend this poor excuse for a "college" to anyone. American Institute in Toms River has an uneducated, uninformed, rude, condescending staff. The "administrators" and "directors" are laughable. The students are robbed of their money, time, and education. You are treated like a child, reprimanded for absurd things, written up if you have an opinion, and forced to sit in 2-3 hour long seminars so that local banks can promote themselves. The students are seen with only dollar signs over their heads. There are also constant fights between students. Many fights become physical and I felt very unsafe... especially when police officers surround the building on a monthly basis.
