American Institute - West Hartford Reviews
I love the school so far, I'm really excited and cannot wait to start in January. I'm looking forward to excelling to become a medical assistant and hopefully keep moving up in the medical field. I'm extremely anxious. American Institute has really outgoing and fun teachers who care for their students and want the best for them and the students careers.
This is my first experience taking an online course and it's a very different experience for me. I'm not that computer literate, I know enough to perform well at my job but other than that I've had to ask for help finding things and I missed a deadline for an assignment because I didn't know where to look but all in all I'm doing fine.
The internship/ job opportunities for my specific major are very good, there are lots of available jobs in my field but I need the certification because I already have several years experience.
