I'm a 2008 COA grad, that would like to thank the career services dept. for helping me better my future.. i am currently working in my field yet, sometimes it does get hectic and annoying...regardless i Love what I do and I do the BEST that i can to enhance my dept. but some people just DON'T want to understand or take in what I gotta say!!! >:O

Overall, ALL students that enter this school, have STUDENT LOAN PAYMENTS!!! Please Borrowers, Don't forget to contact me @ the DEFAULT PREVENTION DEPT. (South Gate campus near you!) if you are having trouble paying back your loans OR NEED AN EXTENSION to place your student loan payments on hold :P

waddup chelo!

I have been attending CCA for the past 5 months. Since I have been here I have had a really good experience. I have found that if you just act like a decent human being that the staff and faculty is really nice and willing to do anything to help you. All of the below reviews are probably from all of the slackers and freeloaders. In every class there is always that one person who is hyper-melodramatic and likes to complain about everything and cause drama. I am sure it is those people who wrote the bad reviews. So here is a list of some good things and bad things at about CCA?.

Good- friendly staff, security, new equipment in the classroom, intelligent instructors, teachers stay after class to help you, good class sizes, food/snacks easy to obtain, etc?
Bad- parking (but a UC is worse), people eat your lunch if you leave it in the refrigerator, lunch truck (don??t eat the breakfast burrito), and that is all I can think of.

All I can say to new students is just check the place out. When it comes down to it, all that is really important is the instructors, curriculum and equipment. When looked at other schools before enrolling here they had ancient machines, the teachers were just as old, books were the 1st edition and most of the time while getting a tour no one even looked or smiled at me. Those are the kinds of things to me that are more important than all of the minor stuff from the bad students.

It really makes me laugh when the people leaving the bad reviews are complaining about the instructors "bad" English,or the inability to find a job, yet their own reviews are rittled with improper English, spelling errors, and an complete lack of sentence structure! Way to go with that one! GOLD STAR FOR YOU! Maybe you haven't found a job because you are a MORON, not because the school lied to you!

it's disapointing to have people write bad reviews about cca im a medical assistant and this is a good program for a start in the medical field i finishd skool in 10/07 and got a job in 12/07 its not up to the school to get u a job it's up to u to look out for ur self and ur needs and wants they are not going to call u and tell u hey u got an interview go ur gonna get hired, as for me i had to got to school and go to career services and ask for assistance and i got an interview and the job.so its up to u. but i didn't like being a MA so im back at CCA for diagnostic medical sonographer and im almost done.... so its up to u.. and instructors do have accents but u will come across with people with worst accents.. i really like this school thats y i'm back... the only thing that sucks is the price for school for dms is a bout 38,000 now.. i got it for less than 35,00, and for MA it was 12,000? in2007, i dont know now ,so if u want to be a MA go to lynwood adult school and ask about the ROP program its a good program i think downey adult school has it too.I dint like working as an MA because its too much work and a little pay i was getting paid 8 an hr. its not fair... i like cca but it's a good school teachers do care and they are there for u all u have to do is ask for help if htey know ur messing up they let u know what u need to do like i said its up to u "if u dont help ur self no one will"

I would definetely recommend Career Colleges Of America in South Gate. This college has excellent teachers and staff, they are very friendly and proffesional. They guide their students and help them all the way untill they acquire the required skills and knowledge needed to succeed out in the real world. I am very proud of my decision to go continue my education to Career Colleges Of America. Now I am a Pharmacy Technician and working on Campus working as a Student Services Assistant in South Gate Campus.

CCA has given me the opportunity to achieve a life long dream of becoming a nurse. I am very happy with all the staff and instructors and I love their open door policy that they offer to everyone. CCA has given me the knowledge and skills that I need and has given me the key to success in life.... A CAREER.

I am a 2006 VN grad from CCA and am currently preparing to go for my RN. The knowledge and experience i acquired at CCA was invaluable in my chosen field. I went into this program with my eyes wide open and with the understanding that it was going to take work to reach my goal. I was given the tools at CCA and it was my choice to put forth the time and effort to make the most of this opportunity. The instructors were very knowledgeable and the staff was always willing to help. I know that know that anything worth while is going to take work. If you have a good attitude and are willing to learn you can do anything. CCA helps you reach those goals.

I am Computerized Office Assistant graduate. I was offered a job before my grad date. I have been working in my field ever since I graduated from this school applying all the skills that I learned. This school has made me very marketable in today's job market.

You know, it's not so bad. It could be worse but it's not. It could be better, but it's not. It is what it is and in that it's a Zen like thing which is better to not question what it is, to define it would be to lose the essence of it. ROCK ON.

This school only wants your Money .. after you are done with your extership they send you to an open entry position.. not doing what you are supposed to do... " I REQUESTED for them to pull me out of the extern.. because i was not learning anything just filing. . ,,, " I WAS TOLD TO HANG IN THERE.. " THEY DON'T CARE WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU.. ...
. And still you need to wait for them to find you a place and they only set you up for an interview.. and good luck for you .. if they get you ...
YOU ARE NOT BEING TEACH WHAT a MB needs TO LEARN . THIS SCHOOL IS NOT GOOD. SINCE THEN HALF OF MY CLASSMATE THAT FINISHED SCHOOL HAS NOT BEEN DOING ANY MEDICAL BILLING DUTIES ONLY ENTRY LEVEL POSITION.. SUCH AS FRONT/BACK OFFICE , CLERICAL.. .... DON'T ATTEND THIS SCHOOL.
