St. Augustine School of Medical Assisting Scammed me out of $900 for a online medical assistant program that does not really exsist. I would have never found this out if I wasn't trying to take the state exam to get a job as a medical assistant. Internet
I was looking for online schools to further my education as a Medical Assistant because I work full time and am a mother of three young children and do not have the time or the means to go to a regular school setting.
I found the St. Augustine School of Medical Assistants and was excited thinking i was finally going to be able to do what i have wanted to do for a long time and could not. I researched them and thought i did all the nessasary steps to make sure they were a legit school and that they were fully accredited.
I did everything i was suppose to for this school studied and took the final exam. I passed that and they sent me a certificate and my transcript of everything i learned of the course of study.
I was starting to prepare for my state exam when i had to get some accrediation code or an id to registar for the state exam. I e-mailed the school and never heard back from them. So i decided to call and they told me they didn't have a number for me to call for student services and or the administration for the school it was only e-mail based.
That was when i found a website called geteducated.com and found that the school was on that website as a fake accrediation program and that in the state of Michigan where i live i can not take the state exam from this school.
The "fake" accrediation program they say is legit is called, NACB, National Accrediation and Certification Board.
