First and foremost don't be lured into this school by it's cheap price, when it comes to education you get what you pay for and for 3500.00 you don't get much.
I received a half a@@ education, phoney grades and answers to the national exam. When I asked to complete all of my class and externship hours and do make up work I received my diploma and transcripts. After missing 3 weeks of school and having Anatomy & Physiology removed from the program I had earned a 4.0 grade point average. I somehow even managed to get an A in A&P a class that was not taught to me.
Let's not forget the people at the school will also try and promise you help with job placement. This WON'T happen!

Doctors, hospitals and facilities beware of any student coming out of this school. Students spend the extra money to get the education you need to be a professional in your field.

Wonderful School

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

I am all for free speech, but the information should be accurate. When you put a complaint in writing it is very important to make sure the information is true and correct. You should also be able to support all of your statements and accusations, as you are risking the chance of being sued for libel. You are not an ex-employee.

You (or your daughter) were free to go to any school of your choice. We do not misrepresent ourselves. Our instructors are licensed and/or certified in the occupation relating to the classes they are instructing per state regulations.

In order to "have" your CNA you have to schedule and take the state exam. We include the class for this but we cannot include the state exam.

Your comment about "placing students in a daycare" is bizarre. It doesn't make sense to me either, as we have never placed anyone in child care.

I am not sure what you are trying to say about the state license, but to clarify for other readers, we are state licensed.

Trinity Medical Academy has graduated many students who continue on with a rewarding career in the medical field.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Warning- Trinity Medical Academy is a Ripoff and a SCAM

AUTHOR: HondaLove - (United States of America)

First off I wouldnt ever go back to this school; they were Fraudulent and misrepresenting themselves.

There classes dont teach you much in a short period of time especially for the
CHEAP A** PRICE I PERSONAL PAYED FOR THAT MOST ARE FUNDED BY THE STATE!  Anyone who goes to this school your much
better off going to PHCC with Credited classes and Certified Teachers, None of the teachers at this school are CERTIFIED there all EMTs thats not a teacher who should be teaching a Class.

Second- if you take the PCT course they tell you that you will have your CNA False.  I never got that either and for the fact that the IV course is Bull if youre going to sit in a class for two days take note then try to put a IV in on one of your classmates without knowing how to do it, Youre crazy!

Let's not forget the people at the school will also try and promise you help with job placement. This WON'T happen! As well as interview help FALSE. Then they proceeded to tell me oh we place are students in a Day care WTF if your going to medical school why would I want to be placed in Child Care?

That Just doesnt make sense to me this school is a RIP OFF!

No hospital or Drs office will hire cause its not a STATE LICENSE.  Warning: Do NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR THE STATES
MONEY TO GO TO THIS SCHOOL CAUSE YOU WONT GET A JOB WITH THE CERTIFIACTIONS THAT THEY GIVE YOU.

Its sad that you Trininty Medical Academy Lure people in just to steal there Money, Refuse to help when they ask for it, Change the test but give out a different packet real way to make someone fail. Youve been reported to the state, Truth is I hope you all get shut down! You are NOT a School youre a SCAM.

And just a FYI this isnt a False accusations its the truth they will do anything to LIE to you and cover there a**! You all might think its such a wonderful happy go lucky school but your wrong.

This is a wonderful school!

AUTHOR: Director - (United States of America)

Update to the original report written.

I just wanted it known that the person who wrote this report also made false reports against other upstanding people. This was proven.

She was also arrested on a felony charge on 7/17/2011 for Battery on an Emergency Medical Care Provider. This is public record.

We have also filed a police report for harrassing members of our school. The report she wrote is completely bogus.

We have many graduates working in hospitals, physician offices, and healthcare facilities.

Not true!!! GREAT school!

AUTHOR: nitrogengarden - (United States of America)

I attended this school to obtain my CNA. They were EXTREMELY kind, and pushed me to work very hard. This is no easy walk in the park. You get A LOT of hands on training and yes they are lenient...But they would never let someone glide by on false knowledge. I am friends with the owner and staff, and they kind hearted christians. Plus, why would someone file a RIPOFF report when they got what they paid for? They are NOT a job agency. I was told in the beginning not to expect being placed in a job setting and that without experience in the field it is extremely competative. They are there to educate, not hire. I am VERY satisfied with this school and think they do a great job. I watched some of my classmates pass and some failed. Don't try and smash someone's reputation though because you aren't satisfied with yourself. If it's not what you "thought" it was, you should go spend a couple thousand to go to college and find out it's the same thing. Just because you go to school doesn't mean someone is going to place a job in front of your face. Just not realistic thinking...Anyways, GREAT school, GREAT people. A+++++++ Don't listen to anyone tell you otherwise!

Trinity Medical Academy Graduate

AUTHOR: Lisa - (United States of America)

I too attended Trinity Medical Academy, but I obviously have a different view and so does my daughter and two other co workers. We all have had a wonderful experience and did very well in the class. From there, they helped us find jobs and we are very happy and grateful. Not only did we pass the state board, but had several job offers in a matter of days.  THANK YOU Trinity Academy. People get out what they put in. Im at a well known hospital, my daughter is at a well known cancer center and the other two have private clients.

Trinity Medical Academy

AUTHOR: LLB - (United States of America)

   I just want to add a comment to the complaint on Trinity Medical Academy. I am a student of trinity medical academy and am very satified with their program. I have been there about a month and 1/2 and the didactics are excellent. The instructors Tim and Michael are excellent instructors who strive to help the students succeed. If something is not understood they go over the material again and even give you one on one help so you will understand. If you miss 3 weeks of school as you said your going to be upset because you have missed an extreme amount of material. Also if you miss that much school how would you expect to get a good job.

And just for the record the school does not give you the answers to the exams they go over material that may be on the exams. I don't know what schools you may have gone too but I know even in high school teachers go over the material that may be on the tests in order to help you study the appropriate materials so you have a better chance of a successful grade.

The key here is to go to school , do not miss so much and study and listen then you will succeed. Don't blame others for your failures. Own up to them and move on and do better. This is an excellent school.

False Accusations

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

We are very saddened to have read this report. Our school has a wonderful reputation and has always strived to help each and every student achieve their goals. We will address each complaint in this report.

First, as far as the type of education this student feels she was provided: We provide the proper learning environment, materials, instruction, and hands-on lab experience students require to be successful. It is up to the student to make the best of their education, study, have good attendance, and a positive respectful attitude. Morals, high standards, and honesty are qualities most of our students possess, but there will always be someone who has to blame someone else instead of taking responsibility for their own actions.

Second, We will admit to making an error regarding your transcript. The one you received does not have your student ID # on it. It is not yours, and their was a typo. We had a conversation regarding this matter in which you were notified. You were supposed to come in pick up the corrected transcript but you never showed. The phony grades you speak of are false. Your corrected transcript reflects your corrected grades and GPA.

Third, As far as missing 3 weeks of school. Yes, this would affect your grade. It does not mean you cannot graduate as you completed the graduation requirements.

Fourth, we simply use study guides to help the students prepare for their National Exam. You have made this report sound as if we provided you answers while you were sitting there taking it.

Fifth, A&P was not removed from the program. It is taught throughout and we have the A&P exams and coursework.

Sixth, We assist students in job placement, keep them updated on job opportunities, and provide resume help. Schools cannot guarantee employment. We have helped many successful students find employment. Sometimes it just takes a little time.

The student filing this complaint made false accusations against the person she interviewed with for a job in the medical field.

I must also state that this complaint report is not credible as this student has also made false accusations against another member of the Health Care Community, and another student. She has made vulgar harassing phone calls and sent vulgar harassing text messages. There has been a police report filed. This student is no longer in good standing with our school.

Anyone interested in more information about our school, which has a great reputation, please stop by anytime or make an appointment. You may speak with students at our school, meet the instructors, and receive a school catalog.
