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
I started the pharmacy technician course in 2017 and finished it within a few months. I have been waiting for almost a year for the promised externship. They keep making excuses saying that there are no externship positions open at this time. I am not willing to pay the $700 for this course because it is beyond ridiculous. They treat you like dirt and do not give what they promise. Their customer service is terrible and they just want your money. I will NEVER recommend this school to anyone! I already filed a BBB complaint because I feel scammed out of a lot of money. I went out on my own to find an externship and no one would take me. I will not pay a cent more to this scam of a program because I feel like I learned nothing and they have done nothing to advance my career as promised.
After completing this course from Ashworth, I've now completed over a dozen online high school, college and trade courses from 5 different institutions. I can confidently say that Ashworth is by far the worst experience I've had, hands down. The technology is out of date, the support is almost non-existent and the tools that they supply are laughably cheap. Under absolutely no circumstances would I ever recommend Ashworth College to another student in any field. There will ALWAYS be better options. Even if they are literally the only school that offers a program, you can save $500+ dollars by just buying the exact same textbooks, practice materials and certification exams on other websites. The only things you'll miss are the generic, poorly worded multiple choice quizzes and long periods of waiting while their materials are on "backorder".
I have had the worst experience with this school. When I have questions my instructor never calls me back or emails me back. So I am paying all this money for a school where you have no help, nobody ever calls you back, when instead I could have got a grant or some help to pay for a much better school that you have help anytime instead of feeling like your just wasting your time and money. My advice, pick a different school to go to.
I have been waiting on the last step of the course which is the externship for more than half a year. I paid for the fingerprint and finished all the forms long time ago. They couldnt just place me in a CVS or Walgreen. I called and emailed for many times, but they just kept having me to wait. It is definitely not worth waiting for this. I spent like $700+ on this course, but now I spent most of my time waiting.
Collectively it has taken me over 3.5 months to get coursework, I have until next week to secure my spot for graduation however I am STILL waiting for my last 4 tests (which I could probably do in 2 days)? Calling them is USELESS and I feel totally ripped off! I would NEVER recommend this school to anyone...
First off Id like to say about every time I called to speak to the staff they did not give the impression they cared about my questions or concerned, infact their responses sounded belittling in my opinion. And not very helpful. However S. was very polite. I had went through my course with a 4.0 grade point average and when I completed my lab simulation test I was supposed to be placed for next turn ship I had followed all the requirements and steps to obtain my pharmacy technician trainee license and I waited six months to be placed and still I could not be placed. And now theyre wanting me to pay more money for an extension just so I can sit here and wait some more. I wish that someone wouldve mentioned to me how long the wait process could take instead of making me wait in limbo. I felt it was very unprofessional on their part to not keep their students in constant contact and keep them updated as to at what point in the process they are in the placement. If you are very serious your future I would highly recommend not using Ashworth College as your school. Im sure others have their own positive experience but this was my personal experience with them.
Course was just a gamified version of the textbook, which itself wasn't a great reference on the topic. I've learned more from shows like Fix and Flip then I coulve hoped to have learned from this program. Then they didn't grade my final project until I contacted them to remind them twice and even reuploaded it. Then once it was graded I had to call again to find out they didn't put me on the graduate status. Maybe the other programs are better, but the college's business structure and timely manner is unbelievable. I never review anything because it's a waste of time but these people have wasted so much of my time that I feel the need to do this for them.
One of the most pathetic online schools I have ever attended. I have been emailing them about my final grade for months now but have not gotten any updates on my grades yet. I keep opening a ticket and it keeps getting closed stating someone will get to it soon. This place is a rip off, teaching outdated materials in programming, even the software's have been upgraded by Microsoft now. Dealing with them has been a nightmare and up till today I have not gotten my certificate. Stay away from this place and save your money or you will end up like me.
I cannot finish this program because I do not have the books they are supposed to provide, books I paid for in advance! Supposedly, every single book is on backorder! Really? Seriously?This is unacceptable! Sounds more like a scam! Customer service = POOR! Trying to reach someone who actually cares = NON Existant!!
