Ms. Dawson was so much fun and so professional to learn from. She really sets you up for success and pushes you to your fullest potential. I’ve gained so much knowledge and confidence in being a Medical Assistant thanks to Ms. Dawson and the rest of the ACI crew. I was able to pass my NHA exam on the first try thanks to the amazing support and knowledge I received from Ms. Dawson. Thank you a million times to Ms. Dawson for helping me get to where I am today. 10/10 experience, will highly recommend. As long as you have Ms. Dawson by your side and willing to learn you will succeed!
Ms. Dawson was so knowledgeable about the material and so helpful! I learned so much and also gained a lot of confidence with performing various medical duties and injections. ACI really cares about their students and wants everyone to succeed. Ms. Dawson really did her best to make class enjoyable and fun while staying on top of our material!
I am very thankful to have had such a well informed, experienced, and educated, instructor.
Mrs. Dawson will provide you with the most current (up to date) information, experience, and education that you will need to pursue your career. she has a wealth of knowledge, and will take you through each process along the way, and take the time to explain the things you might not understand. I have had many educational experiences, and not everyone has the ability to teach, or educate you, in the things you need to know, in the proper way, I am thankful for a person like Mrs. Dawson that has helped so many along the way!
The best way I can describe my experience is to give Mrs. Dawson a high compliment..."She is Firm...Yet fair" Act accordingly... and she will prepare you for your future!
I took the medical assistant course which includes Phlebotomy and EKG as well as MA so we will be certified in all 3 by the end. I really appreciate that it is done this way because it makes us more qualified for a job than others who might only be certified in one thing. The classes were long at times, but that was necessary because it only took a couple of months to complete. I also and very thankful that they help you find an externship at the end, we spent time working on our resumes and I found that helpful because I have never had to apply for a job in the medical field before and didn't know what they looked for. Overall recommend this course.
I was very skeptical that this program was going to be sufficient to be able to teach me within 12 short days but I was very mistaken. By the end of the course I was very confident in my ability and the ability of my classmates in order to preform the functions of a phlebotomist. Mrs. Augustine has been teaching very well and helping us along the whole way, a amazing instructor. I will definitely be recommending this program to anyone that is interested into the medical field quickly. Thank you ACI
When I first toured ACI in March, I was dead set on only taking the phlebotomy course because that was what I wanted to do most. However, after speaking with teachers at the school I decided on doing the CCMA course to get all of the certificates I could. It was honestly the best decision I’ve ever made! Ms. Dawson is one of the most sincere teachers I’ve ever had. Her teaching style is phenomenal and she never lets a student fall behind. She loves to teach and there’s no doubt about it! There were many times I struggled during the EKG course and she would sit there and help me until I figured it out. I’ve never felt more prepared for anything in my life until taking this program. Phlebotomy was obviously my favorite. Learning how to stick veins on students who said nurses have never been able to stick them really just goes to show how great of a teacher Ms. Dawson is! Taking this program really opened me to a whole new career and I’m excited to see what my future as an MA holds. Thank you Ms. Dawson for everything you’ve taught me and for helping me to build myself up into the career I’ve always wanted.
10/10 recommend this course and school if you’re interested in getting started in the medical field!
I wanted to preface my review by saying it really took me a couple days to fully comprehend my experience over the past 3 months.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the CCMA course with Ms. Dawson. There were so many wonderful memories and lessons that were made and will forever stay in my mind. What makes this course so intriguing is the fact that the information and practical usage is so directly applicable. Today I had my first clinical externship experience and I have never felt more prepared. Ms. Dawson was able to teach me how to be efficient, clean, and confident. The whole course (phlebotomy, MA, and EKG) all taught me that I can take leaps and bounds if i just put effort into it.
Ms. Dawson is a wonderful teacher - from the hard work she puts in to the confidence she has in her students. She is the type of teacher that will hold your hand when you are scared, but also see the immaculate potential you hold as a student before you can see it yourself. She told our class that she can be strict, but it is out of love. I completely agree. I think Ms. Dawson likes things done her way, but when i stepped into the "real working field" i could instantly tell that Ms. Dawson's way really was the best way. And for that, I am grateful to have been able to complete this 3 month CCMA course!
I recently completed the Medical Assistant training program at the ACI in April 2019. I originally began my career in retail before a family member recommended this school. It took a little time but eventually I was able to save up enough money to attend the program. Ms Dawson was my instructor. I can't say enough postive things about this experience. Ms Dawson is a very informative instructor who goes the extra mile to make sure her students are not only prepared for the certification exam but also for life in the healthcare industry. After completing the classroom portion of the program the school helped me to find an externship site at the medical facility of my choice. After successfully completing my externship, I sat for three national exams and passed all three on the first try. Today I work as a Clinical Technician in various urgent care facilities. This was only possible thanks to my newly earned CCMA, CPT, & CET credentials. The training experience from the ACI has changed my life for the better. I am now on firm footing to begin the path to a successful and rewarding career in healthcare. I would encourage anyone who's searching for an entry into the field to give this school serious consideration. You won't be disappointed.
Ms. Dawson has been amazing teacher for the EKG Technician certification. She makes sure you understand and learn all the information you need to know for the national certification and be proficient at the job. She is very sweet and cares about her students. There has been a lot of information to learn in 3 weeks, but she has made it clear and easy to understand.
