Brightwood College Reviews - Certificate in Medical Assistant
Review of Medical Assistant Certificate Degrees
For overall experiences at this school, I would give 3 out of 5 stars. I enrolled in Medical Assistant course, this school has offered all new students for 21 days provisional period to try-out. If you dont like it (just like me) you can bail without any student loans applied. So, I gave it a try since some of the reviews in here are totally opposite. I have no medical background and learning something new was tough, but it would have been easier if the school had given me cleared prints out or lend me some textbooks. Although, I understand that the school tends to be online and visual learning base but some power point pictures and texts are not cleared enough especially when you need to learn the details of skins layers (Integumentary System) Also, PowerPoint presentation left out too many details. I found out that I was struggled while doing in-class assignment or homework; I most relied on Google search. However, I decided not to continue the course, solely on my personal preferences. Ive seen many students happy about the class and decided to continue. For me, I would rather spend less than $15K for MA certificate.
This is a great college I'd recommend this college to more people because the study is legit also the preparation gor the study is very well i would say the building is also in a great environmental area I would have to say the staff and instructors are very nice as well
Brightwood is a good college , even though I have to drive 1 hr from home, but I have learned a lot since Ive been enrolled!!! Teachers are great amd staff too, they are very helpful and always find a way to make you achieve you goal..... in my opinion its a good school. Thanks bye
Great College and Friendly staff. The school is at a great location and the schedule is flexable. I was able to attend college and work my part time job at the same time. It only took me 9 months to finnish and get a job at a pediatrics office after I graduated. I would recommend Brightwood College to family and friends.
Really loved the teachers as they knew their stuff and cared about the students. Career department was really helpful and I got hired right off my externship. I love the field that I am in and I would definitely recommend this school to anyone that is looking for a career fast.
I had the best experience at Brightwood College. I had the best instructors who were always there when I needed help both in school and were always there to listen and give advice if I were having a personal issue. Career services was very helpful as well. They sent my resume out to several employers until I found a job and even after I got a job . Very blessed to have found this school.
The program directors are unorganized, only one teacher is reliable and honest. The teacher I had knew the system and creates a unstressed experience for her class, meanwhile the other MA teacher position is a rotating door and the students in that class were sadly steered incorrectly. Many many students were made to repeat courses due to faculty fault. I sure wouldn't pay for a re due when it was their fault. It was a discouraging experience outside of my classroom. I spent three mods watching "seniors" take priority in labs only to be disappointed in my senior mod. "Freshmen" were the new focus then. Verbal remarks regarding that. Extra lab hours left me waiting for MA director to show up for scheduled time, no show. Extremely unorganized. Promised certificates were never given. I wonder if many other students noticed all the started projects that were never completed? Externship was a horrible experience, again with organization and planning. Not one school official reached out to see how I was doing. Not supportive. Finance pulls students out of class in the middle of lectures, inhibiting student education. Medical terminology is not a course. Drama!!
I was working minimum wage job untill I enrolled and finished medical assistant and Phlebotomist programs. Now I am certified, I am employed full time and love what I do. The pay is great benefits are amazing. Kaplan college have the best teachers who still in field and who inspired me every step of the way.
