Ashworth College Reviews

This place is a huge scam! They tell you one thing and do the complete opposite. Never send you supplies or books you pay for then keep wanting more and more money from you. Student services is a joke. I called to ask a few questions about some accounting issues and I was literally called a liar and told that I was making things up and did not know what I was talking about. I would not recommend to anyone.
I earned my degree in 2006 with 3 young children and 1 toddler at home (homeschooling) and managing a home business. After raising my children, I re-enrolled in 2017 to continue my education for a Bachelors Degree in Business Admin. I have not had any issues or problems at all! The student portal is easy to learn and use. On the rare occasion that I had to call in to Student Services, I was treated with respect and the service has always been great! I already have a job that I enjoy utilizing the knowledge that I have learned. I'm excited to complete my 2nd degree with Ashworth College! #ClassOf2006and2019 Thank You Ashworth!
So happy I chose Ashworth! Awesome experience, easy to follow program, work at your own pace. I would definitely recommend ithis college to anyone who is working a full time job and dont have the time to go to classes on campus. Thanks you Ashworth.
Some of the reviews about the college you just can't listen to or believe. Saying a phone operator from the school was rude, is NOT reviewing the course. It is reviewing a person in a call center. That is not a review of the school. If you have criticism about your courses, the lessons, or computer stuff, that would seem to be more productive. You get out what you put into this.
I do not recommend this school to anyone. 1. The instructors dont have their emails for contact anywhere so I wasnt able to ask them for any assistance with anything. I had to rely on representatives. The ticket system they have is useless. Instead of asking for the missing information that they need, they close the ticket and say the matter was resolved. I sent an email about two months ago that has still not been replied to. Not that it matters anymore. 2. The material is outdated. I was sent a dictionary from 1998. There are programs mentioned in the textbook that are no longer needed to get the work done, so I wasted a good amount of time trying to download it and get it to work. 3. Now that Ive completed the certification, I have to wait for the certificate until everything isnt paid in full, which to me makes no sense. I completed it, doesnt mean Im gonna stop paying it. So if you think youre gonna get your certificate soon after completing it, not gonna happen. I finished this certification with minimal to no help from the actual instructors.
Called before enrolling asked if the school is regionally acredited! The reapresentative said yes ( lied) ! Signed up and started my online classes! Found out I was lied too and they are not regionally acredited! I spoke with student advisor and he accepted my cancellation! He said I would receive email of cancellation and get my money back in 7-14 business days ! Im still waiting for my cancellation email! Each one of the reps I spoke with lied to me! I do not recommend it!
From their Vice President to their Customer Service Reps this college is extremely unprofessional. There have been numerous issues with courses, transcripts being evaluated, waiting too long to have assignments graded, books on back-order, quizzes within the courses not having the same information as in the book and just overall confusion and madness. I am surprised this college is even still running! I neglected to mention how I have never been able to get a tutor. It always sends me back to the recorded greeting. Terrible college. The only good aspect is the price.
I can't believe the time wasted on all the tests and assignments completed and yet, I need a proctor to babysit me taking a final exam. I found out when I completed that I needed proctoring and they have to review it. The person on the phone was sarcastic when I mentioned on being unaware. Everyone writing a review studied and devoted time and money to this school! It's only a certificate program! I don't understand the reasoning for a proctor when I'm an adult taking a certificate program! Well, lost money and lots and lots of time and hard research all wasted.
I understood going into this that it was going to be a self-study course and using my own guns to get the hands-on experience. This review is not based on that aspect of the course, but about the testing structure and how the correct answers to the test questions are sometimes wrong. This review is also about the text books that were sent out for the shotgun part of the course. The shotgun book talked about a recoil spring for the CZ712 and the CZ719 and how the recoil spring for the CZ712 was around the magazine tube and the CZ719 had the recoil spring in the buttstock. When I took the test, the question stated the recoil spring on the CZ712 was in the magazine tube. Well that was wrong so I answered it as such. I got the test question wrong and it was the only one I got wrong. You can retake the test so I did and answered it as though it were correct and got the test question right. If this were the only instance where this happened, I would not be as upset, but this happened on almost every test. I also felt like the instructor(s) were trying to outsmart the students with the way the questions were asked. Why? Just ask straight forward questions. I was sent the 3rd edition of the book for the shotgun part of the course. This was fine, but over half the test questions are based on the 4th edition. I know because I wanted a Kindle version of the 3rd edition but could only get the 4th edition. I am thankful that I made that purchase otherwise I would have been scratching my head to answer the test questions. I say save your money, do online research, watch youtube, get the books or videos that will help you to become a gunsmith.
They are a legal scammer. I ask for a course and they sent me a book for material that has nothing to see. And a dam test you have to take. When I tried to call them for help they just tell you the same you was already trying to do and you couldn't. Even I said I couldn't understand the program they offered me to close my account but by paying $'300.00 cancellation fees. For one week I only logged in to they sistem 6 times trying to understand they none sence. For me I didn't take any credit from them they end up sending to the credit because I didn't pay for what I didn't used. They don't care about ppl education, they just care about how they force you to pay
