"Constant changing of instructors, dons, everything even front office staff. The business manager harasses you about payment in front of others. The last don was a crazy woman who felt the need to control any and everything plus the school is on prohibition!!!"

"Like everyone trying to find a school that'll work for them I was very hesitant about going to a school I saw as an annoying ad on TV over and over again. But something about that time in my life I knew I needed a change and this school just fit. There were a few instructors that we're not very good teachers thankfully I never had them as the one instructor I had which was incredible ended up moving out of state. Not sure if the program is as good as it once was when I was there but I'm very successful in my career and advancing because Concorde gave me that head start."

"Don't do PTA program at San Bernardino. Instruction is poor, doing "busy work" as stated by one instructor instead of doing productive work that relates to our studies. Spend more time teaching each other and always conflicting answers by instructors where they deny they said the wrong thing. The "structure" of the program is to set is up for failure. This last term, they changed the grading scale as compared to other terms. Can they really do that? If complaints are presented the trend is that the student gets dropped, by having stricter grading on papers or practicals. Since when is it a great idea having someone never in lab or lectures come in to grade practicals? Classes are inconsistent, dates changed with disregard on student's schedule. Time management is horrible, instructors are trying to figure out lesson plan minutes before. Degrading feeling by least 2 instructors, never seeming to answer questions directly. Bottom line, waste of money and time. For the amount of money you pay, instruction is poor and student's rely on each other and youtube. We are denied extra time in lab to practice, the "extra time" we get is to rush to get our check offs done, for during the actual lab, we do busy work and are given little to no feedback. Look elsewhere for the PTA program. Concorde is a school about $$$, pushing student's like cattle and taking money, the turnover on careers after graduation is low, based on stats I've seen and people I know who have gone through the program. I see every day, New recruits painting a nice picture, but be aware looks can be deceiving. The PTAprogram in San Bernardino is alone, complaints are not heard, president of the campus scrutinizes perhaps for we don't even belong there."

"I attend Concorde and completed my program in August 2012. The School, Staffing and intructors are GREAT!! I had such a great time when i was there. I will be returning.. thinking about the Respitory Therpist program.. because the pay is a lot more then a PCT.. don't get me wrong i enjoyed every bit of the pct program and working as one.. but i would like a little more pay."

"I've been attending Concorde since September and so far I have not one complaint. Only Complaint i do have is the childish young adults there. Other than that the instructors I have had so far are amazing teachers and I'm learning a lot something i couldn't do in a really large environment."

Degree: Surgical Technician
Graduation Year:
"Started off good, great instructors, then when downhill when the "clinical" part started. Don't dare complain about anything or the school will threaten to take you off your clinical site and not let you graduate. Big debt, bad education. Would not recommend Surg Technology and wish I had gone to a "real college" instead. Months after graduating, still no job and the school never contacts me to help in my job search. A joke."

"The facility there makes me feel welcomed, and part of the school. You are never alone at this school. I feel comfortable, and the campus is one big family."
