The College of Health Care Professions Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (34)
This college is a joke. I spent $29,000 on a certificate, when you no longer need a certificate to get a LMRT job. It's a scam!!! Go somewhere else and get a degree. Look up NCT in Texas. Any Dr. can train you to be a LMRT. No need for school. The turn over is ridiculous!! People leave and new people come in. Trust me, do not attend this school. They career services helps place you but since they only need you in a job site for a few weeks you will be let go so someone else can be placed there and their numbers are always high. All a scam. The PTT students can't get jobs and the MA students pay like $20,000 just to end up getting paid $10 an hour.
I would not recommend The College of Health Care Professions in Austin, TX. I think the instructor was a loser growing up who had no friends & wanted his students to be his friends so bad. Couldn't even finish my schooling. Don't waste your time or money.
Save your money ...the program is unorganized. You do NOT learn what you need to know to pass the Mblex. Students here are taking it 2 or 3 times because the correct information is not taught. The rules change everyday too. You get yelled at by instructors and program directors for stuff every day. There is a very negative vibe all around the school. You will have many instructors who teach things completely contradictory. Teachers never stay long here. If you want proper training do yourself a favor and go somewhere else!
I withdrew from the school and was supposed to receive a letter on how much I owed. Got no letter and now can't get my transcripts because I owe $4k. They basically lied about sending a letter. Don't go to this school! They only want your money!!!!!!
Beware! Do not spend your money on this school!!! Unorganized, poor staff, and all they care about is the money! They don't care about the students If they don't like a student then they do everything they can to run them out. They don't have a good reputation or clinical sites to offer the students. Go to a accredited school that is respected!
I am currently in the LMRT program at the Dallas campus. The program has been going well so far but the teacher turnaround rate is high. When I first started they, they were so unclear as to the bridging program to a full RT and said don't worry about it. Right now I AM SITING IN A FULL CLASS AND THE TEACHER HAS NOT SHOWN UP. IT HAS BEEN OVER 1 HOUR. I also just found out that they only offer the bridging program at the Austin and Huston campus and we would have to move there if we want to bridge. THIS IS RIDICULOUS! Every time the student body had asked about this they would have no idea and say they would get more information and get back to us. I JOINED THIS SCHOOL SO I CAN BECOME A FULL RT. The turnover rate for teachers are high, the education is poor, they read from the book, and there are more bad things to say than good. If you are considering coming here, DON'T!! Save your money and go somewhere else.
The instructor made me feel unsafe in the classroom & school building since all the workers where on his side. The instructor was very unprofessional. As a result I ended up leaving. It was a waste of time & money. I would not recommend The College of Health Care Professions what use to be called The Academy of Health Care Professions. Now I have found my career in a professional field where I work with many successful people.
*BEWARE* If you are interested in a school that will lie to your face, cheat you out of a good education, and steal your money, the CHCP Austin campus is the school for you! We have had to endure four teachers within a six month period, none of which have taught us. The accepted method of "teaching" is reading through slides and sections of the chapters word for word, mispronouncing words (both basic English and medial terminology) left & right, not going over the assigned homework so that you know what is incorrect and how to find the correct answer, no direction, assigning workbook/computer assignments without even going over the corresponding chapter, etc., etc., I go could on and on... On three separate occasions the books we needed were on back order, one book we did not receive until the 4th week of the MOD. Each MOD is 5 weeks, so we did not learn anything that we were supposed to be taught for that subject. We did not receive our coding books until a week after the MOD began, but we were given homework assignments with no book to use. We have taught ourselves what will be asked of us upon entering the field. God willing, we have taught ourselves correctly. We have spoken to the Director of Education and the Campus President on numerous occasions regarding the issues but nothing has changed nor does it appear that they are concerned. The classroom has a damaged dry erase board that can not be used at all, the chairs are extremely uncomfortable, the tables in the lunch room have fallen on several occasions but they have money to purchase new signs to put throughout the halls so that they can present themselves in a better way while giving prospective students a tour of the campus. The majority of what we were told from the advisors has been false! The solution that was presented to us is that they would give us an Assessment Test to determine what areas we are lacking in and then add those into the review classes during our externship period which is every Friday for 5 weeks, so a total of 5 days to provide us with the education that was promised to us and should have been received during the correct previous MOD's as well as preparing us for our certification exams. We have taken the Assessment Tests (we were told that it would be one customized test but it ended up being 3 tests which took us 2 days, a total of 12 hours to not even fully finish) 3 weeks ago and we still have not received the results back. Our review class is due to start in 2 weeks. There is only 5 tests! This has been an extremely stressful situation that has caused us to lose our faith, drive, and thousands of dollars! Please take my advice and look into other schools before choosing CHCP. No one deserves what we have to experience!
If possible, there wouldn't be any stars selected. Unfortunately I did not do my research on this school prior to signing the $17k contract. Needless to say, I've regretted it ever since. It's even more unfortunate that I'm still currently enrolled in the MCB/HIT program. I've been through 4 teachers thus far (due to them resigning), I'm due to begin externship within these next few weeks; I'm nowhere near prepared for an extern assignment. Most mods are a repeat of the previous mod, there's very little "coding" going on within the classroom. My first teacher yelled at me just before locking me in a classroom because I wouldn't take a quiz home to complete outside of class. The second teacher sent us to lunch, then turned in her keys without notice, we returned to find a random teacher sitting in our classroom. It's unclear why that teacher left, but she left without grading any of our assignments so we were given "completion grades"; no one is clear on what our grades would have actually been. Needless to say, we do not know what we need to focus our studying on. The 3rd instructor was awesome; however, I believe the school gave very little incentive to retain her. As we reviewed the syllabus with the 3rd instructor she was shocked that we were so far behind given the amount of time we've been in school. Complaining to "directors" is like talking to a brick wall. Oh, they listen & take notes...everyone I've complained to has taken notes but nothing has been done to rectify the lack of proper training, sacrifices, wasted time & money shelled out to this school. Every complaint is followed up with the promise that things will get better, as of yet, NOTHING has been resolved. An "assessment" was given 2 weeks ago to gauge our knowledge-there are 5 people in our class-yet the school is still trying to gather our results? Long story short, they're waiting on us to either dropout or graduate so the problem will go away. I can't remember the last time we've been offered the opportunity to give an end of mod review; so here's my review, CHCP! I've complained to both the Director of Education AND the Campus President-even the corporate office; as of yet there has been no progress and definitely no follow up. Do not waste your time or money at this school! I hope this helps those interested in enrolling, do yourself a favor and keep looking...this isn't the place for a serious student.
As a whole the campus was dysfunctional. A representative enrolled my friend and I with a fake diploma. The information given was a lie the only thing that was correct was the money I still have to pay as of today. Please don't waste you time or money here. PIMA is a better choice period.
