I am getting ready to graduate and the year and a half I have been here, iv'e loved every minute of it. The instructors are great and the deans are always there to help you. I feel like I am fully prepared to experience putting my training to work. Take my word, I loved the training I received at Career Point!
Im not gonna sit here and argue with all these coments. Instead im just gonna say that im grateful to career point. I dont know where i would be with out the experience i got there. I can now say proudly that i did something in my life that actually paid off. I can single handedly support my familly without having to send my pregnant wife out to work just to pay the bills. I apreciate what this school has done for me.
I dont know what school the other people went to, but my experience at career point was completely different. First off, the school is not all runned down as the previous person described it.
I constantly see the maintanance working on projects here and there, retouching a wall with a fresh coat of paint, fixing anyting that needs attention. Oh, and the vending machines are there. If you miss them, you may need to go get your eyes checked out. Besides, i dont know why anyone would rate a school on vending machines.
Most of the coomputers have windows xp. The only ones that have windows 2000 are the ones in the typing class. But who would need more to type, its not like your gonna be typing at 3000 words per minute. As far as the free laptops go, you have to be enrolled in the associates program, and in the online program. You cant just walk up to your teacher and request a laptop, everyone is gonna laugh at you. What i see here is just negligence.
One person somehow managed to miss everyting, and is now venting with a review. And please take pride in what you do, self pitty will get you nowhere.....Fast!
First off I would like to thank Career Point for helping me be the first in my family to graduate from college and set a great example for my kids. I started off in the IT program about couple years ago and not only have I found a job in something interesting and that I have a passion for, I now also gain the ability to take My A+ certification and diploma anywhere, and have tons of options and roads to pursue in my skills area. Let me just add I think this is a great school for someone like myself with kids and want to be able to do something thats going to be around for a long time.
I was interested in the LVN part time program & scheduled an appt to speak to someone.I spoke to a young lady.I was only there for information but was told before I could get any I had to take their test. took the test & passed,after about an hour I still didn't have any info.
I asked 3 different people there what the price of the program was & all of them said the same thing we can't tell you because everyone qualifies for different things.I think they are all trained to say this because I couldn't understand what the big secret was.I also wanted to know how often classes started & was told that there is no way of knowing until they start again but I already knew the next class was to start in Jan.2011
About an hour & a half later I still didn't have all the info I needed but they said I needed to return for the LVN entrance exam.After a few days of thinking about it I decided this the worst school I hade ever gone to,they are not organized,lied in my face & I knew it so she called me to remind me of my exam date I told her that I decided that I'm not going to this school she said"uugh" & hung up on me.
After having a bad impression from my information appt.I just felt like this was not the school for me.I have since toured Galen nursing school & just fell in love w/it.My tour guide& info person gave me all the info I needed the price.it was just an awsome experience.I've decided to take my entrance test July 17 because I know this is were I'll be going.
This school is a good jump start for all of those who have commitments in their lives already. The instructors knowledge is vast, and the students are very welcoming. Its been a very good experience, and i would encourage anyone to give it a shot.
I will not disregard that CPC does provide a service to the community that is much needed. The compact timeframe that a certificate can be achieved is high need. The problem though is that the school takes advantage of that need.
A person comes in to learn more about the school and isn't allowed to leave without signing up to start school the next week. The kicker is the financial aid. In order to attend school you go into serious debt taking out loans.
Yes, school is expensive and loans are many times necessary. The problem is that the population who is being forced to take out these loans can't afford the loan now or after they graduate. The jobs they get just don't cut it, which is why staff will not answer questions about how much the program costs.
Going into debt for education isn't bad, just make sure you are getting what you are investing in. What we have here is a situation where the wealthy see an opportunity to make more money and don't care who they are stepping on in the process.
If you decide to go here, you will gain the skills you need to achieve in the work place, just know you might not make enough to pay off the debt. Invest in a future you can afford.
The instructors were very knowledgeable and cared about my education. I had family issues that prevented me from coming to school. My instructors helped me out to finish. I now have a good steady job thanks to the instructors at Career Point.
The staff was kind and knowledgable. I had family issues that provented me from attending for several days and my instructors gave me one on one attention to help me get cought up. I am learning allot.
