This is the best CNA Training center awarded three times News fours reward for best of its business in the area. I attended the course and was very impressed with the wealth of information and education I was given.. I attended class with 7 other students who were all equally as pleased. Ms Lisa and Lois are the best people ever. I started working as soon as I got my certificate along with three others in my class. I received five books with the class. A pair of scrubs for getting the flash card questions right. We made vision boards and had a party on Friday with cake coffee and all.. I will be working for my care of North Florida and am so excited thank you for your love and support. I now have a carreer. side note. I went to uei and excel before attending A+..I spent over 4000.00 learning what I learned for 225.00 here.. Love you guys!
this is the best can school in Jacksonville. I was trained in a week/ passed the clinical and written portions of the test and am working for Baptist medical center.
The teacher Crystal was great, the class was great.. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for affordable thorough training.
I do not recommend this facility for SERIOUS CNA or phlebotomy training. I took this class in summer of 2015 and it was a joke. If you just need a certificate to authenticate your credentials then...ok. But if you need a seasoned professional whose a quality trainer to thoroughly teach those clinical skills to you...DONT GO HERE! The trainer, Lois, was nice but ghetto and unprofessional, had never taught a class before, doesnt go over the written piece AT ALL, talks about way too much other non CNA related stuff, wasn't focused, never even showed us the HOYA LIFT- but did mention it, didn't even show us ALL the skills, and dropped the bomb that she, herself, has never taken the FLORIDA CNA BOARD! She's certified in some other state. When we asked certain questions about the board exam, she flat out said, "I dont know." Lisa, the owner, has a different personality anytime you speak with her so trying to communicate anything to her was pointless. Sometimes, it appears she forgets she's talking to adults who are paying her for a service. l heard she's bipolar and I can absolutely believe that.
Some of us walked away from the class knowing we would need to take training elsewhere. I had to take the state board twice. I attribute my success to simply watching videos of the clinical skills. Go to Youtube. Its really that simple. The video they show you at the end of class is good. But why pay Lisa $100 for a dvd of the clinical skills (which she charges people different prices for that we discovered) when you can watch them online for FREE!? It's insane. You pay for the class then have to pay for the book from Staples. And, again, there is NO WRITTEN REVIEW AT ALL DURING CLASS.
I don't know if Lois is still there because she, apparently, replaced some other girl who had been there for years who I heard was actually really good, but she is not instructor material AT ALL. She was a nice lady though, which is why nobody wanted to get her in trouble, but that cost us money and a lack of a quality CNA education.
Lisa also had her teaching phlebotomy too and she has NO PHLEBOTOMY EXPERIENCE. Somebody taught her how to stick and the order of draw just so she could teach that class. She knew nothing else. She told us that herself. It was a mess. Lisa apparently is all about the money and getting as many students in the door as possible. It was unorganized as hell. As much money as she's bringing in, that training space should look a lot better than it does.
I didn't get my moneys worth from A+. None of us in that class did. We talked about it. But I am a CNA now and I'm glad about that. Unless some MAJOR changes have been made in the last few months....DO NOT ATTEND THIS TRAINING CLASS! Call Acumen, Success CNA Training, Sandrikas at Excel CNA, or just use Youtube.
You've been warned.
This place is a fraud... I was offered the class for 200$ plus 10 lisa charged my card 610$ and refused to give me my money back i had to go through a dispute process for which only 400$ was giving back... I tried to communicate with lisa and she made it seem like it was my fault all this happen.... Please dont waste your time or money... Cheaper is not always better
