I'm a recent graduate of Avalon Medical Career Academy and I will say my experience here was pretty pleasant. I was apart of the Phlebotomy course and I loved it. Phlebotomy was definitely the best career choice for me! :)We have to remember that the objective is to earn certification so that we may work.My experience was straightforward. The class was simple, they give you the coursework, there's a lecture (you study at home) and we draw blood as practice. We repeat. The instructor answers any questions you may have and as long as you pay your payment plan on time, there are no issues!

I enrolled in 12 week cma class in march 2018. It is now July 2018 and i still have not taken my state test. The instructor really tries hard to teach but he always goes back to the beginning of the kecture for people who shows up late or people who missed class. This leaves the people who did show up on time and to class daily behind. We fiddle our thumbs while they play catch up mean while time is ticking and before u know it class is over and i have learned nothing for that day. By the end of the the 12 weeks we were so far behind, the instructor basically told us what to read and study and gave us tests with answers and tild us to study until the state test. About that... The last day of class was June 14th a month later and still no sign of the state. How about we all filled out the FIRST STATE application in April and it was rejected because Dr. Raymond missed the deadline to turn them in. We filled out the SECOND STATE application in May and still nothing. Dont waste ur time. Its very unprofessional and thats only some of the things i experienced believe me there is more.
This is where I went to commercial diving school. They offer excellent training toward a great career you can be proud of, with great pay and adventure.
I took my CNA classes in 2005 and I recommended the schools, not too bad and I want to back again for medication aide classes,one on my niece and friends went too
I entered Letourneau accelerated BBA program for working adults just before the turn of the century. I was short a math class, but was told they could probably substitute my Trig class for the Business math class. I worked full time, commuted 3 hours a day, and completed with a very good GPA. The time invested, and my low income caused a lot of trouble in my marriage. At the completion of my coursework, I applied for, and went to Graduation. Instead of a sheepskin, I was handed a blank sheet of paper, with my whole extended family present. When I asked for an explanation, I was told that the University decided not to accept my Trig class as credit for the Business Math class prereq. I had damaged my marriage, and had not slept in nearly 2 years, so could not take the math class. My marriage eventually fell apart, despite my efforts. Much of our problems were my ex wife's financial concerns. Had they notified me during my time as a student, maybe I could come up with a plan to complete the math requirement. Now, I am disabled from injuries resulting from long hours at a low paying, high impact job, and divorced. When I had time to complete the coursework, after my wife and I split, I was told there were a number of classes I would have to take, as requirements had changed. Definitely not happy with my dealings with this University. All I can say is, they will be very demanding and exacting with YOUR requirements and responsibilities, but not so much with theirs.
Their service is outstanding!!! Highly experienced instructors and staff great people and always going the extra miles to help! I will recommend their service.
This school is a joke! I graduated June 29th, received my certification in Phlebotomy July 8th. It is now about to be October and I still don't have a job! They don't help you! All they care about is money. Dr Raymond is rude and he doesn't know anything! Can't understand what he saying half the time. The program is 900 plus 105 for the cert test. & he says after grad we can always go back and practice blood draw But when you go there's no one to practice with. All the teachers are rude and ghetto. They don't care about you! You don't learn everything you're suppose to know. He LITERALLY gives you the answers to the Cert test! In a room where there's no cameras. Just so he has high pass rating and can keep his school. I really don't feel like I earned my certification. I know how to draw blood but no one will hire me because I have no experience. & the cert is NOT nationally certified. Most places will Not accept MEDCA as a valid certification . BEWARE!!! Save your money and time!!!
be aware , avalon medical career is a fake school. the owner doesn't want pay the instructor that is the reason why the homeless instructor never show up, this is a big waste of time and money. you will learn anything that a joke , i will not recommend anyone to go there.avalon is a playground but not a real school . the owner is from nigeria but he things is smart than anyone.
I am a cosmetology student and if you want your license this is the place to come the director Mylinda will go out of her way to make you accomplish your goal.
The school provides a great education for those that want to better themselves. What could be better, a an inexpensive education for a lifetime career!! Good Job NWEC!!!
