This school is a SCAM. Just like the comment below they are only there for money. All students from 2012-2015 still haven’t taken their board test. My friend and I both planned on attending this school. She did and I didn’t. Thank God I didn’t. I was on Valencia’s waiting list a year and half. Started and finished way after my friend and I’m a nurse while my friend still isn’t. She did everything she was supposed to and they came up with tons of excuses on why she couldn’t take her test but then claimed the only way she could take her boards is if she paid $3000

This is a very good private school. good teachers small class, and very affordable, I any body to this school.
Great school with great instructors. it wasn't easy it took a lot of effort but it was worth it. I am so glad I took this class!
This is a great career school! Small classes give you more one on one training with the teachers. I have seen several schools before picking STC and I am extremely happy with my choice. I have already been offered a job even before finishing my externship. STC rocks!
The majority of classes offered at Aparicio-Levy are not worth the money. The most expensive class is the biomedical technician. One of the least worth your 11 months and $3k+. It will not qualify you for anything. The teacher will tell you the certificate will get you hired but the truth is that after attending a very large convention we all found out that not one company spoken with, which was pretty much all of the vendors, stated they would not consider anything under an associate degree.The woman that teaches this class doesn t even have an Associates degree in biomed. My opinion is she has no business teaching the class. You wind up watching power point after power point and then there s the lectures given from a church pulpit you are forced to watch on you tube.While you sit there hoping your going to be taught something you finally get the clue she has no intention of teaching you anything. No plans followed. Many days I was happy I had a laptop to do other things. Not class related. We were told to do whatever we wanted to. For 7 hours... No instruction. Nada.During the course the instructor, used loosely, will be evaluated several times. Each and every time certain students were coached on what to say and given questions with answers so it seems like a real class and that she s a real teacher.One of the guidance counselors will dump anyone into that class just to get the class to make .It s total fraud and again a waste of your time and money.The only legit program taught there is the phlebotomy program. Now, that teacher does her job and does it well. her students learn what they need. I had originally wanted to take that class but was slamdunked into the biomed. I should have done otherwise. The female counselor is notorious for sticking people in that class that have no biz being there.Not a class act over there. Admin is more than aware of how bad the class is but does nothing. I rank this a ripoff deluxe! One doesn t really expect to ripped off by a public school but this school is equally as much of a ripoff as places like Devry, Sanford Brown, etc. you just don t plan to have your money stolen from you by a public school.
I recently completed ABC Bartending school in Tampa. I have to say this school is top notch. I have recently landed a bar tending job at an upscale Tampa restaurant with no recent experience except the school. Sam was an outstanding instructor anyone can tell and teach you how to mix drinks but Sam teaches you that and most importantly how to get a job, which is why I went to bartending school. If you are thinking about ABC I say go for it you'll get work if you apply what Sam teaches. I'm a 41 year old guy with no recent experience who has gotten an awesome job and has turned down a few others, it's possible! Thanks ABC
