To warn those who plan on going to a vocational school for less the amount of time and cost spent at a community college RECONSIDER YOUR OPTIONS! PLEASE RESEARCH! The school charges way too much money for the PCT or any other programs they offer. The instructors are either unqualified or just end up leaving 2 weeks into the course or towards the end. Financial Aid tells you to talk out more than you need of a loan. And lastly the staff are not well organized at all.
First off, they make it seem like you are going to be able to do certain duties, which you don't my career adviser or the person who helped me register malformed me about what exactly a PCT is and does. And starting off my first class the teacher just left and found her a new job two weeks into the class and we had a sub the whole remainder of the course. Supplies were never restocked or available when needed. They buy the books and uniform for you (included in your tuition)and then ask to buy the books back so they can make profit off of them. Oh, the uniforms you only get two for classes that you will have four times a week. I had the same instructor who didn't even know how to use a stethoscope. This instructor had to teach us basically majority of the general classes.
What really tipped the iceberg, was that when it came down to finding out that all what I was paying for was for books and a certification. I assumed that PCT requires ;BLS/CPR, CNA, Phlebotomy, and EKG. Nope, all that they feed you is all lies. Please it is a waste of time, energy, and money. Just go to a local High school that offers cna classes or just go to a vocational that didnt recently change its name because of a lawsuit.
