Branford Hall Career Institute Reviews - Certificate in Medical Assistant
I had a very positive experience at Branford Hall in Southington. Instructors are excellent but have difficulty exercising their authority without being disrespected.Unbalanced cultural student body indicates quotas. You get out what you put into it.
I hear more negativity that anything here-- I just completed my last semstar and as of October been out on my extership( which i found myself). I believe all the negative comments. I understand and been through what everyone is saying. Lot of drama, attitudes and disrespect. I had a peer disrespect me in class, i had to speak to her i am 20 years her senior and needed to put this smartass in place since the teachers ignore this nonsense there. I had nice peers who minded their own business drop out and leave because no one would do anything about some of these people. I have even spoke to director myself and nothing done. Also, there was a peer who would with others smoke pot almost every break and lunch. Unorganized!!!!! I still cannot get an answer on when is graduation date???no answer they never know. I dont even know if this is a degree or a certificate no one explains clearly anything there. we are all confused and wish we knew answers to all of our many questions.
i went to brandford hall in Amityville ny.they were the worst school ever.Went fulltime for 9 months.i finished in july and did my internship in aug.it took 7 months to finally take the test.when I called to get see about taking the test.i was told the papers were sent to the wrong campus.Then I called corporate and explain,They called the school and I finally got the letter to take the test.shouldnt of taken that long .So I scheduled my test and right after that I got a letter for a review class.I called the career lady and asked if I can sit in a class for a review.She told me rescheduled the test.i said no.so I had to call corporate again and explain.they called the director of the school and then she called me and said I can come in and sit in a class right before the test.career lady at the school sucks.she helped me redo my resume after my test and I was told by a few people that it sucks.the school finally had a graduation a year after I finished.i had to fight for what I'm entitled for .So the people I went to school with never that there letter to take there test.i have a 6,000 loan I have to pay and cant afford it now cause of them
Everybody in this forum has nothing but bad things to say about this school. First of all the school DOES NOT promise you a job. I specifically remember signing a form in the beginning that says that. It's all about if you want to learn. A lot of people in the school act immature don't do there assignments and misses class. It's like people expect to succeed and don't want to put in any effort. I love all the teachers and administration of course no school is perfect and there are times where thing don't run right, like an instructor maybe absent, you may not get your uniforms right away, but the administration is doing there best. Just pay attention do your work, read your textbooks and learn as much as you can. If you do your best you may be able to make this a career but if you don't put in any effort. Your not going to get the outcome your looking for. I'm in my 3rd module with a 4.0 average and I love my school. -amityvile,campus
Referring to southington Branford hall. Instructors are amazing, they actually care if you learn. financial aid is good, administrators=annoying, and career services (Jen and Evelyn) are the rudest, and most self absorbed people in the whole school. They're all about numbers, so don't think they actually care about you or your career.
I decided to write this review because I almost decide against going to Branford Hall, Bohemia seeing so many bad reviews. Right now I'm on my third month in the MA program (8 mo. program) and so far I have no complaints. My teachers are excellent and even my classmates are great people which makes the class more enjoyable. It it a fast-paced environment because the program is short but I'm learning a lot. Perhaps is still too early to tell but I haven't seen any drama yet. No drunk, drugged people and no fights. My complaint is regarding the facility itself. The toilet seats in the ladies bathroom need replacement. My other complaint is that the program leads to a RMA certification but not to a CMA. If being a CMA is important to you, you will need to check if your campus offers that certification. Tuition includes books, uniforms, shoes, stethoscope and blood pressure monitor.
This review is about the Southington campus for Medical Assistant. This school sucks, worst school ever I wish I never went in the first place. I don't mind the teachers but I didn't care for a couple of them. I started my externship in July 2013 and finished in September 2013 and had my official graduation ceremony in December. Since I finished my externship site in Sept 2013 I have not had a job offer I applied to many positions in the medical field and even the hospitals that always seem to hire and not one offer. The career services department director Jen Llorens don't count on her because she will only send the resume out here and there ever so often. Talk about lazy. Then when you want to talk to her about jobs, etc she will claim she's busy most of the time. Plus a lot of the places that I interviewed with ended up hiring people with experience. It is crap that this school doesn't do/care enough about the students but only cares about the money/profit. Then I have a loan to pay back on top of it. For anyone who wants to think about going to this school DON'T because there are better options out there.
Waste of time and money!!!! This school is bad....wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy!!!! The rules, the director everything about this campus is unorganized and not worth your time or money.
The amityville, ny school is very horrible. I would not reccommend my dog to come here. The teachers act as if your children. They dont care about you like they say they do all they care about it money money money...I wish I never signed up to come here now i am stuck in this program !!!!! WHAT THEY NEED TO DO IS SHUT DOWN AND START OVER GET ALL NEW STAFF AND GET IT RIGHT!!!!!!!!!
Amityville is unorganized. The teachers do their best. Im not happy at all we learn but not enough . I dont feel that we get enough hands on practice in clinical areas. As for instance we are almost done with ekg pharmacology and my teacher cannot show us how to inject the injections cause we have no syringes. To practice this is ridiculous. Like I said not organized at all. I am about to drop out and call corporate . I am so tired of the direction this so called director took this school. We have certain students popping pills all day students not following dress code and more...cheating on tests and nothing gets done. Ridiculous I tell you. To be continued. ...
