Here’s what our Medical & Dental Administrative Assistant students are saying about Advantage Career Institute
Advantage Career Institute is a wonderful school. The environment is very welcoming. The staff members are amazing. I knew from day one when I took the tour with Joe that I wanted to go here. They are there for you with every step of the way. Mrs. Sally is the greatest; she teaches you so much in such a little amount of time. Any questions or concerns she’s on it and then gives you extra. She goes above and beyond. I had no idea what I wanted out of this course, but then I took the week of Dental. Ms. Alvarez guided me to dental. She made it so much fun to learn about teeth. Never thought I would say that. After that week in dental I knew I wanted to work in that field. Career services helped me get there. They set up my resume to stick out to dental offices, and sent me job offers. Only two weeks after passing my exams did I find my job. It is a great job and I am very happy with it. I owe a lot of where I am to Advantage Career Institute. I don’t know where I would be if I didn’t go here.
That all changed when my sister, herself an ACI graduate, convinced me to visit the school and take the tour. So many promises were made to me that day that I never would have believed it all if it hadn’t been for her recommendation. Within just a few months, they would teach me everything I needed to begin a career in the medical industry. They would help me attain all the certifications necessary for a strong résumé and even show me how to build it. They would teach me how to interview effectively (always a weakness of mine) and place me in an internship after graduation. Simply put, it just seemed too good to be true.
But it was true, every word of it. In what seemed like the blink of an eye, I was educated and ready to begin an exciting new chapter in my life. The Career Services department, headed by the amazingly helpful Karen Brey, set me up with an internship, which soon led to full-time employment. Now I spend every day in a fantastic work environment, surrounded by great people and gaining the experience and knowledge that will be vital to advancing my career in the future.
Do yourself a favor and go take the tour. Joe Padalino, head of admissions and a genuinely friendly person, will show you the facilities and answer all your questions. He will help you understand the school’s methods and make sure that you get placed in the program that best fits your skills and interests. Personally, I recommend Ms. Sally’s Medical Office Specialist program. She is an incredible teacher who sincerely cares about her students and will push you to realize your potential. My own bias aside, all three programs offered at ACI are intensive and will pave the way for endless opportunities and future success.
I worried that finding new employment in the same field would be hard, but with the help from ACI, it clearly was the road I wanted to be on. Due to a high demand in the medical field in the supportive administrative side, it was something that interested me. For me, it had some of my experience with finance so this was much helpful in deciding. The teacher Ms. Sally was phenomenal at her lectures, it greatly put a perspective to the whole medical industry with her hands on experience.
In turn, I was able to finish my internship and find a job to get my career going. I love that we take all tests in the same atmosphere and are certified as soon as we pass through out the US, not just the state of New Jersey.
