Central Florida Institute Reviews

The students are very focused and independent. They want to be successful and not distracted. I expected test study sessions outside of class. Other colleges that I have attended had students who would work in groups and study together. This school did not have that as a priority. I think it is beneficial to share knowledge and help each other be successful.
Workload is a lot, but the course is so much faster than any other accredited school in the area. It's actually the only school in the area offering my specific degree (echo). The school is well received in local hospitals and I have personally been told by hospital staff that the knowledge base of students from CFI is far superior than some of the other schools around. There are no elective requirements and lots of hands on experience.
Workload is not too bad, but they really dont teach you what you need to know for externship. Then the externship site treats you like an idiot. I would recommend finding a real college over this sorry operation if you are serious about getting a good education and a good job. Central Florida Institute only wants your money, and they have a terrible reputation with the hospitals.
