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 The classes never had any instruments needed to complete course work, X-Ray machine rarely worked, books out of date, and some days the school had no water.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.
Tuition cost way to much,everything is rushed,you really don't gain any skills to where you feel confident to get a job or go on an interview ,they only care care about making the school a 5.0 they force you to take internships that are not close by where you live,they care all the way up until they get that loan money, Go to a technical college its way cheaper and you will save money and learn more I'm disappointed at how greedy this school is for money.teachers are passing you have so they look good instead of really trying to help you.
This is the most unprofessional college I've ever seen. They allow certain students to get extra points while others who work hard can't catch a break. Then they lie about it!!! Students get caught cheating and nothing is done about it too. Thy staff are incompetent. Honestly it's not even the teachers either. It's the administration.
My college is an accredited school that gradually helps you earn your credentials. There is also external support provided within the campus. Attending this college motivates me to want to further my education and experience higher entry levels. I would most likely recommend my college to anyone seeking to further their education.
They lied from beginning to end. When I first registered I specifically asked if they were an accredited school. Comes to find out, the DANB does not recognize them. Therefore, all my hard work was for nothing. It has been next to impossible to find a job as an assistant because of this. Not to mention, the other students are the ones that are showing you how to do things, not the teachers.
