Anthem Institute Reviews
I made the mistake of asking for information as I wanted to learn something new. They call me EVERY day...I asked them not to. They refuse to send literature (big red flag here for SCAM) but want you to come into the office to "discuss" it.
That way they can pressure you into signing papers. I didn't go and am not interested but they refuse to stop calling me. Stay away from this place...they are only out to get your money...
Anthem is it the business only to make money. I know a couple people who went to the school when it was Chubb and it was very respected for teaching programming.
OK, let's be real honest. The school is bad. But why? The first thing that you need to do is to read the postings on this page. Your fellow students are morons. They can't read well enough to understand the material, and they can't write or spell. I already had a college degree and was going there to make a career change. I would have been better attending a community college because then I would actually have credits that transferred and had gone to a real school.
Anthem is probably no worse that DeVry, which is the national joke of schools. And you won't get stabbed by your fellow students like some of the inner-city schools that are there again only to make money. Bottom line: Anthem doesn't pay their instructors much, so they don't attract good teachers. The administration is not interested in education, only in the school as a business.
It's EASY to point fingers when you fail.I did the 9 months for Medical Assitant training,My instructor truly care she invited us to come in on saturdays for workshops, they helped me with my resume , my cover letter(RAUL)and help me find PT work while i attended,i got the skills & knowledge i needed to pass the NATIONAL certification exam(tested at the Jersey city location)
now i work in the medical field as a RMA and im in nursing school . If you cross your arms for 9 months and expect others to do what YOU need to do .DON'T point fingers when reality hits you.. the problem is NOT the school the problem is YOU!! i know because i was i class with people like you.
THIS TRAINING WILL HELP IF YOU ARE WILLING TO RECIEVE IT !!!
I couldn't stop laughing when I saw what the last review said. You absolutely can sit and take your CMA test when you graduate from Anthem in Cherry Hill, I just took it!! And in reference to credits being transferred, I work for Cooper Health Systems making $15/hr and they are already paying for me to go to whatever nursing school I want. So don't listen to some of these negative people, it could easily have been a person in my class who just didn't make the most out of it. If you put time and effort in here, it will pay off. I could not be happier with my results after graduation!!
This school is a lie. Program is only 4 weeks per one class then you move on to another one. They make you think that you will be able to sit for the CMA exam which is not true because they aren't accredited by CAAHEP or ABHES which is what you need to be allowed to take it. They also never found me an externship site, but it doesn't matter since 6 weeks of experience didn't get anyone that went there with me a job. What they dont tell you either is that the average salary for being an MA is $9-11/hr which is what I made at a job I already had.
They also don't tell you that MA jobs are near impossible to get nowadays since there are so many school churning them out. Couple that with Private doctor offices closing left and right and you will never be able to get a job doing this! There credits don't transfer so I have to start from scratch if I want to be a nurse.
All in all a waste of $12,000!!!
I graduated from the Computer Networking program in Cherry Hill and I am already a manager for HR Block. They allowed me to hire a few people under me, and i recruited them from Anthem as well. If it weren't for this course I would still be sitting home on unemployment, but now i make $40K+ a year. I really can't speak to north brunswick but the cherry hill campus is awesome. If you put the time and effort in here you can definitely be successful. So anyone looking at anthem do not base your decision off 2 disgruntled people. I know PLENTY of happy graduates who appreciate what the Anthem Institute has done for them.
