The hands on experience was great based on the career choice you picked . I enjoyed the help of my instructor and the way he taught since he has experience with the job we were preparing for . Things that could change would be more help toward the students that can’t get financial aid because of there DACA status . I didn’t receive much help in the financial part of the school but my friend did because she was a U.S citizen which I don’t think is right at all.

Counselor was really helpful I can't wait to enroll and begin working on my future . Everyone there was extremely professional very welcoming . Carrington has so many schedule options I can choose from to fit my everyday life .
Far superior to any other college I've attended. The courses that are taught ready the student for the workplace. The last couple months of the program is dedicated to externships that the college arranges for each student. The student accepts the job, completes the hours, completes the program, obtains the certificate, and enters the workplace. Many times, the place where the externship was completed is a starting job for the new graduate.
During the externship, the career centre helps the student build a resume.
I've never known anything like it! :D
