I picked API because of their advertisment that are shown on T.V., and heard on the radio all over. It was said that they offer hands on classes and that there class room sizes are small. But what really caught my eyes was the job placement. My report is: I went to API to become a Medical Assisted. They charged me over 13,ooo for tution, I didn't live on campus. I got one MA text book, a MA work book, Medical Termnology book, CNA booklet, and a sethoscope. I was told that I had to pay to take the exam for CNA and for graduation. About three hundred dollars in all. In all of my classes it was two classes in one. For exampl: My class did medical termnology first (my class had ten people), medical termnology already had ten people in it ,who was getting ready to graduate. When they left out ten more people enter. after we was finish with that course we was moved into another classroom that had a big class in it also. And it continue like that each course doubling up the classes. Out of the seven months that I was there three teachers was fired, one quite because the unprofessional manners, and Mrs. Burk had to sit with us twice cause we didn't have a teacher at all.Also Out of those seven months (classes were only for 12 months) I did hands on in one class, which was the CNA class that was offered close to the end of completion. And I did hands on in veinpunture, which was very important cause you had to have twenty sticks inorder to get credit, Mrs. williams was the only teacher that would give us that opportunity and out of seven months I had gotton four done(out of fifteen). that's just how often we did it.The only other hand on class that was offered was CPR and First Aide. API was the worst experience that I every went threw with schools.What make so bad I didn't get any money until that seventh month that was 800 dollars, they said I'll get the rest after externship. I didn't finish because of the unprofessional manner and now i'm stuck with a BIG LoaN REPAYMENT and no career
