They wont call you to set up times to further discuss classes. They are shady and cant give direct class times. They want to talk about the money. They wont speak of transfer credits till you agree to sign up. High dollar and all about the green. Run!
Concorde will cause you a heart attack. I have gotten so disgusted with this school. From the horrible instructors with little to no experience or expertise in teaching to the students as well. I left the community college and came here thinking it would be faster. Faster yes but way more trouble and money. I advise anyone considering this program dont cause its a big mess! Instructors have called us stupid and called students out there name. It is an abusive place totally. They do hound you for money too. Not a place if you are serious about learning. This place couldnt care less about your future just the dollar!
From the moment i enrolled at Concorde career college Jacksonville, fl it has been nothing but chaos. This school is so unorganized it is unbelievable. From the 1 year i was there for the Surgical Tech program, we went through teachers. Mind you, these aren't licensed teachers, these are just other surgical techs teaching students. On that note, we had an exam (a very important one that will impact our grade tremendously) that we studied for (so we thought) and we all ended up with bad grades on the exam; we all studied the wrong subject which we were informed to do by our so called "teacher". So we were given an opportunity to learn the exam and were given a chance to retake the test. So we retook the test and most of us passed; but since we had already taken the test, our scores were averaged with our bad grade... Long story short, it hurt some of our GPAs in the long run because of THEIR mistake. Any how, i am now 1 year post grad, and this school will not stop harassing me for money. I pay as much as i can monthly but it is not good enough for them, so they feel the need to harass me at work, (DO NOT CALL ME AT MY JOB) constantly calling from unknown phone numbers, and constant emails and letters in the mail. This school is c*** and their entire company is c***. DO not attend, please save your selves and go to a community college.
This school is definitely a joke. Do not waste your money coming here. $17,000 for the dental assistant program is a little much for the poor education you get. I went to the San Bernardino one and they dont tell you that you have a different teacher every month. They also dont tell you how you randomly start in different chapters each month and get random classmates to new students to where you have to do orientation all over again. I was expecting maybe 2 teachers one for lecture and one for lab but no. Each month is someone knew. Definitely consider going somewhere else. This place is also not military friendly. I was told I could use MYCAA but come to find out Concorde is on a locked school status so theyre not even accepting anything. A month into my program I was told I randomly owed an extra $1,000. So no. Dont waste your time here
Don't waste your money here. The school is such a joke. While being on the San Diego campus my instructor got arrested for committing frauds on the health care business. Having different instructors each module is horrible. They try to brain watching you to make you think you will be successful. They only focus on the dumbest person and they make everything easy on them. And they don't care for the rest. Some of this instructors don't even have a teaching credential. The school is expensive some cal states are even Cheaper. This school only cares for people's money. The graduation ceremony is a joke and so cheap. Once your on your externship they hardly want to help you if you want to chance sites. By the way forget what you learn in classes not even close on what you do on the externship sites.
I went to Concorde back in 2015-2016. I wouldnt recommend any one who is attending to go for programs like dental assisting or medical assisting. Its really not worth your money and most times in that particular field you dont get paid that much from companies. I went from making 10 dollars a hour to 14 and after taxes I was still making what I made with 10 an hour. Any who my teacher was a b**** and who ever she liked the most she put on good extermships. The school doesnt really care other than the fact that you are a business opportunity. I just recently went back because of the respiratory therapist program and after my enrollment didnt complete I tried calling Amy from administration for other information but she never returned my call once she new I wasnt the next business opportunity .
Signed up and at the time was told I could sit for CODA and DANBE certification. Which found out later is untrue. The classes never had any instruments needed to complete course work, X-Ray machine rarely worked, books out of date, and some days the school had no water. Instructors were not certified to teach, they were just random people who worked in a Dental Office, the instructors would come and go as they pleased, high turn over, there is no Dental Assisting Director. This school does not put your education first. As a matter of fact it is put on the back burner. They would rather make money then actually educate you. Many dental offices in the area will not hire from this school. Spent way more money than I found out I needed to spend. Please do your research before signing up for this school. Horrible and questionable recruiting practices.
Currently enrolled, on my second term, if I had the opportunity to do it over, I would not enroll here. This school is extremely unorganized, grossly overpriced w regards to quality education in comparison to others. Incompetent instructors, who are overextended on courses they are asked to instruct, largely due to high instructor turnover rate causing short staffing, is a big part of why this place is such a mess.
I'm surprised that Concorde College is still allowed to be opened in Colorado. Their LPN program does not prepare you to pass the State NCLEX Exam, but their focus is on their in-house HESI Exit Exam. After 9 months and not been trained to pass their Exit HESI Exam , the school would not allow me to sit my State Exam. Due to space limitations, I cannot expand. Concorde should lose it's State Licensure.
Please look into Community College first, At Collin, the program only cost 4K including bar exam fee and bar reviews plus job placement. Concorde is accredited by Ciara but not registered but Certified, hospitals don't hire CRT's anymore. I pass the examination here for CRT but I am so glad I look into community college and got accepted at my first try.
