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.

I am a former elementary school teacher who decided to change careers and transition into the medical field. After visiting ACI and getting information, I decided to begin with the Phlebotomy program. Having several instructors and teachers throughout my life, and being a teacher myself, I could not have been more impressed or grateful to have Mrs. Augustine as my instructor for this course! Mrs. Augustine is thorough, patient, and encouraging. She has high but realistic expectations to ensure her students are successful, and also feel confident during and beyond the program. I was so nervous to switch from the education field to the medical field, but Mrs. Augustine has truly made my experience seamless and comforting. She inspires her students and is always there to support, clarify, and cheer us on. I am so thankful to have learned from her, and will honestly miss class days with her! I feel prepared and excited to begin my journey as a CPT thanks to Mrs. Augustine. Mrs. Augustine, THANK YOU for all you do and all you are! You're the real MVP!
ACI offers affordable programs that work with all schedule types. I would highly recommend this institute to anyone interested in the medical field!
Atlanta Career Institute is a great school! Mrs. Dawson is an amazing teacher. I’ve learned a lot throughout EKG, Phlebotomy, and medical assisting that I will never forget!
I had a great experience at ACI with the help of my instructor Miss Dawson. She made sure we got all the information,knowledge,skills and technique we need to be competitive MA's!
Honesty Review Alert: When I made the decision to transition from my pervious career into the healthcare field the most important thing to me was what school to attend, how much will it cost, and how long it will take to complete the program. Well Atlanta Career Institute answer all my questions and more. I really enjoyed my time in this program, it was affordable and very durable for its accelerated setting. My professor, Mrs. Dawson, was very relatable and extremely professional which made for a great learning environment. She explained medical terminology and concepts in a way that everyone with or with medical experience could understand. She very patient with and determine to prepare her students for a career in the healthcare field. She loves what she does and it really shows. I really feel prepared for my future career in the healthcare field as a CCMA.
I had such a great experience at this school! Mrs. Hollins was my CNA instructor and is absolutely amazing!! She takes the time to make sure you understand everything and answers any questions that I had. I definitely recommend this school!
