Fortis College Reviews - Certificate in Medical Assistant
THIS IS THE WORST SCHOOL EVER. The credits don't transfer. The teachers act like they don't know anything. IF YOUR Pregnant ? When you leave for maternity You are considered a drop out and have to re apply and re enter this school and pay the application fee over too. This is the worst school to attend. Don't waste your money on b*******.
So this school at first was the best until it came to preparing you for the state board testing, Externship as well as Job placement. They sent me to an doctors office where my skills were not used and the office was not an office, the son of the doctor who had an up and running office was getting the office I was assigned to together to be the second location so basically we are only doing drug testing for Quest. They would not reassign me. So of course there was no job in my field of work. They never gave me my certificate of completion of the course, remember I graduated in 2013 I finally recieved my certificate June 2018, after harrassment and them switching falculty and after the while fraud thing. I Souldnt reccomend this perticular school.
It is horrible school. No books and they don't have teachers. They are just looking for your money and the moment they get your money. No one there have to listen to you. And they lie so much about what the school will offer you but it is all lies. Just look for other school. This is one is not good at all.
Fortis college was a great experience for me. The teachers there are great at what they do and go out their way to help you as much as they can throughout the whole program. Thanks to Fortis I was placed at a very awesome extern and the last 2 weeks I had left I got an interview and got a job before I graduated !! Thanks to all my teachers for never giving up on me and pushing me to my full potential. I definitely recommend this school!
Fortis college is not reccomendable I started January 16 2018 left the School in Feburary less than a month and they sent a letter in the mail stating that I owe the School 2,500 within 30 days which is ridiculous I havent been there for no more than a month their teaching is very high schoolish learning off of slides that are not theirs and its taken offline they pass your tests even if you failed just to get you through the course .. all fortis care about is money and I have tons of regrets going here Im going to continue my education at community college then a university I DO NOT RECCOMEND THIS COLLEGE AT ALL
Don't go to this school! I went to Fortis College in hopes of landing a job as a Certified Medical Assistant. I thought, if I worked hard, and put in my best effort and dedication, I would get what I worked for. I did have some health care background, so the classes and tests were easy for me! But I was in for a rude awakening! All they care about is your tuition money and government funds once you walk through those doors. First thing, the school hands-on training is poor when compared to other schools, as I later found out! During the time we were there, their excuse was that the wrong lab supplies (needles) had been ordered by previous staff members so we had to suck it up! Their computer lab was a joke! They used refurbished computers that were in bad shape and with dead batteries! I passed all my courses in school and was thrown on an extern site with a very high turnover rate, where I felt like I was used as free labor, rather than getting more hands-on training. During the course of my externship, I saw MAs getting hired from another school. The school itself has a high instructor turnover rate as well. Some teachers were good and supportive, but some others could barely speak English. We saw one or two who got fired while we were there. I worked very hard on my externship site, got very little hands-on training while I was there and didn't get hired. I completed my externship hours, and passed the Certification Exam on the first attempt. I felt I have done everything right! I wasted my gas, time, and money attending this school, driving back and forth to my externship site, and to interviews to be told they chose another candidate. Even with this hot job market, many employers still require at least 2 years experience as a Medical Assistant. I think that schools inflate the career prospects for entry-level MAs! I urge you to do your own research before enrolling in this school!
I had the worst experience with this school the Instructors were not knowledgeable Always fights , worst externship sites , when applying for jobs you need 2 to 3 years of experience in the clinical area which we do not have so that means no job.not a good look.now I have unnecessary loans.
What a joke from the beginning until I left. Lied to by my admissions person who forced me to start while my child was in the hospital. Told i was getting degree and really only a diploma. and the teachers are rude and offer no help which counselor said I would get again lied. Financial girl is unorganized and no help what so ever kept loosing my paperwork. Only wanted my money Don't waste your time or money. now attending a real college
I have read all of these reviews before attending this school and honestly was terrified but went through my decision anyways...I'm glad I did because Fortis is a great school the teachers help out so much and really want you to succeed. The teachers actually teach you and make sure you learn. Everything is very organized! I think maybe it depends on the campus because Pensacola campus pass rate and job placement rate is over 80% in both areas ! You get what you put into it as well but I know Pensacola campus is an awesome school and I can't wait to graduate
Fortis College Medical Assisting Program was the best choice I could have made. I was getting back into the work force after being a stay-at-home mom for 15 years. Employed in the medical field prior to starting a family I knew that's where I wanted to continue my education. The cost of the class and the schedule made it possible for me to go back to school while my children were in school. I was lucky to go to Fortis College in Winter Park, the staff there are wonderful, like a family. They truly care about each students success and go above and beyond when needed. The education that I received went far beyond my expectations. The instructor Ms. Denise Wilkie is a professional and requires a high level of competency in her graduates. She teaches with a desire to make her Medical Assistants proficient, professional and well prepared for the marketplace. I feel blessed to have been taught by her at Fortis College. She prepared me well for my current employment and is a phone call away should I need additional resources. The campus director Mr. Richard Zaiden shares credit when it comes to students success. Holding a position such as his you might think you never see him or that he is unaware of the classroom activity; this is not the case at all. He works hard to see that each student gets what he or she needs, He is a hands on director even stepping into class setting when needed. I would recommend Medical Assisting Program to anyone who is thinking about the medical field. The education you get is superior in my opinion. The class room atmosphere is calm and relaxed. While there is a ton of book work and clinical procedures that are required for graduation, the classes are small which make it possible for the students to support and help each other. Thank you Fortis College Winter Park for all that you do for your students. Respectfully, M.R.
