Ultimate Medical Academy / UMA is now a proud member of Rip-off Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program. A long name for a program that does a lot for both consumers and business alike. ..Rip-off Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program, ..A program that benefits the consumer, which assures their complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business
As a matter of policy, when Rip-off Report is retained by a company to mount an independent investigation and to publish our findings, we examine the truthfulness of the consumer complaints using every bit of information at our disposal. Our process is systematic and highly effective because: 1) It takes place at the consumer level and 2) the company or individual in our Corporate Advocacy Program must commit to 'doing whatever it takes to make things right with their customers.' By working closely with the company or individual, Rip-off Report can track the footprints left behind when their promised level of customer service is actually followed by the solid ground of real behavior. Only then do we publish our findings.
Rip-off Report cannot ever guarantee any product or service, but we can only report what we find, in order to help you get a better understanding of the company or individual we are investigating. That having been said, the conclusion Rip-off Report came to after our investigation, to the best of our knowledge, is that this company is a reputable firm, offering products and services of real value. ALL COMPANIES GET COMPLAINTS, BUT HOW THE COMPANY HANDLES THOSE COMPLAINTS, SEPARATES GOOD BUSINESSES FROM BAD BUSINESSES.
Authored by Ed Magedson - Founder, Rip-off Report U
ltimate Medical Academy approached Rip-Off Report last month with the express purpose of expressing their ongoing commitment to student satisfaction and educational quality. In fact, a student survey of 1100 students in March 2010 revealed that 93% of their students were satisfied overall with UMAs program, instructors and administration and 88% would recommend the program to a family member or friend. This means that students can expect that Ultimate Medical Academy is committed to listening to student complaints and working toward finding a mutually satisfactory resolution, subject to the limits of the laws, regulations, standards and policies that Ultimate Medical Academy operates under. Ultimate Medical Academy listens carefully to any concerns of its students and sees them as an opportunity to refine the schools processes and procedures in order to become more effective and efficient in the education they provide. The company's faculty and staff are quick in their responses and they are readily available for specific needs or questions that come up. Ultimate Medical Academy CONTINUES TO CLARIFY WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY CAN DO FOR CLIENTS
UMA is licensed by the Florida Commission for Independent Education (CIE), and accredited by the Accrediting Bureau for Health Education Schools (ABHES), a leader in health education for over 40 years. As such, Ultimate Medical Academy is required to maintain aggressive placement rates for each of their programs offered in order to maintain their accreditation. In October of 2009, they were accredited for an additional 8 years by ABHES for meeting the high standards of the accrediting agency. UMA is committed to working with their students to find successful job placements. UMA works one-on-one with students on their resumes and conducts mock interviews. They boast a Career Services team of over 40 individuals working to connect students with employers. They conduct promotional campaigns to area employers and send out resumes on behalf of their students. Student certifications, immunizations and background checks are included in their tuition costs as an additional service to the employers of their graduates. All job placement assistance is offered by their Career Services team at no cost to the student or the employer. Ultimate Medical Academy continually expanding their participation in financial assistance programs to increase access to student financial aid
UMA has restructured their student finance department and there is an entire team of individuals dedicated to assisting students to understand their loans before starting school. Ultimate Medical Academy is continually expanding their participation in financial assistance programs to increase access to student financial aid. In fact, they recently received approval to participate in the Florida State Grant Programs, in addition to continued participation in the federal Title IV programs. Ultimate Medical Academy IMPROVEMENTS
UMA has also recently revised its internal appeal process. The previous process provided three different levels of staff available to discuss student concerns:
Step 1: The appropriate instructor or staff member.
Step 2: The Learner Services Advisor (online), Program Director (onsite), or administrative manager.
Step 3: The Director of Education (online and onsite).
UMA has now added a fourth level allowing unresolved concerns that follow all three levels above to be elevated to an institutional review committee. The review committee is comprised of senior managers from different school departments and has the responsibility for reaching a decision that is in the best interest of both the student and the school. ANY BUSINESS THAT CAN ADMIT THEY MADE MISTAKES AND CORRECTS THOSE MISTAKES IS A BUSINESS YOU CAN TRUST AND WORTH DOING BUSINESS WITH
Ultimate Medical Academy takes great pains to listen to questions and concerns from students. Ultimate Medical Academy is constantly monitoring the web to be more proactive in helping students who are having issues that need resolution. Once they find these students, they are engaging them through any media necessary to help with concerns they may have.
Because of our investigation and the sincere efforts put forth by UMA, Rip-off Report is confident in giving Ultimate Medical Academy a positive rating. All in all, the company implemented strategic changes to its internal appeal process and reached its goal of achieving total customer satisfaction through excellent service. This was made possible by a completely honest approach to corporate introspection and a commitment to taking good care of their customers.
Ultimate Medical Academy executives understand that the only way to grow as a company is by first recognizing their weaknesses and then committing the resources necessary to fix the problems those weaknesses created.
In spite of such situations, Rip-off Report is confident you have a company that is ready to serve those who need more assistance and is willing to make things right if they seem to have fallen apart.
Rip-off Report knows there is no company or individual that is perfect Ultimate Medical Academy knows this also and demonstrates their need for continuing improvement - that is why Rip-off Report comfortably states that you can be completely confident, safe and secure when doing business with them as a member of Rip-off Reports Corporate Advocacy, Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program. RESULTS OF MAILING TO ALL THOSE WHO FILED A RIP-OFF REPORT
As a part of the Corporate Advocacy Program - Rip-off Report sent an email to every client who filed a Report on Ultimate Medical Academy and I would now like to share the results with you.
Not one person responded to our email offering to get their issue resolved to their satisfaction.
Whenever Rip-off Report does a mailing for a business, .. most customers asked if they could remove the Report they filed and we explained that unfortunately, it was not possible. It is Rip-off Report's philosophy that it is much more beneficial for the consumer to see how a company like Ultimate Medical Academy takes care of their mistakes. No company is without its share of problems, however, there are many companies who continually sweep those problems under the rug and never achieve the growth that other companies such as Ultimate Medical Academy enjoys.
Rip-off Report feels Ultimate Medical Academy has learned from all those who have complained... and they even seemed to be thankful for those who have brought problems to their attention. Ultimate Medical Academy shows leadership by joining the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program.
Keep in mind, Ultimate Medical Academy has worked with many clients over time. What really is amazing that despite Rip-off Report appearing at the top of most search engines, Ultimate Medical Academy complaint ratio is a fraction of a percent of their overall clients. Rip-off Report knows that this is significantly below the industry standard for the clientele that they work with. From our perspective, it is quite unusual for a company who has had so few complaints request on their own to be a part of the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program. Ultimate Medical Academy provides a leadership model for other companies that care about their clients to follow. ABOUT THE CORPORATE ADVOCACY BUSINESS REMEDIATION AND CUSTOMER SATISFACTION PROGRAM
