Well, I decided to sign up for Concorde. The school is still not accredited and they wont know until after the graduation of the current PTA class and thats in 5/2011.

My class starts in July 12. I have went through the process of applying and registering so im all set for class.

Signing up right now is a big risk because the course is still not accredited and wont know for sure until after the graduating class of 5/2011. But with there Respiratory program being accredited, I feel confident they will get accredited.

OMG!!! DON'T DO IT!! This is the same line soooo many "for profit schools" use! "We WILL get our accreditation soon...", "We're going through the process of getting our accreditation and should receive it any day now." Don't believe them! You will finish this course and owe money and you won't be able to find a job. I have seen so many people go through this here in Michigan. These schools will lie to you and really make you feel like, "Wow, they are sincere. They definitely will receive their accreditation soon".....and they won't...and you'll be SOL!

Check www.ripoffreport.com and check out Concorde Career College. You'll see all the people they have scammed into believing them.

BE WARNED!!

DLM83: To add to what Hannah said, if you get an email from Nigeria claiming you'll get several million dollars to help transfer money to a U.S. account, don't do it. ... Also: Easter Bunny = not real.

I'm in the 2nd class of the PTA program in Concorde North Hollywood. Expected graduation is March 2012. So far, the classes and instructors are good. I have no problems with them. The subjects are straight forward, anatomy, english, algebra, and psychology. If you are good at memorizing technical terms, you'll do just fine. Our program director, Dr. Plotke is very helpful. He wants all of us to pass our classes. For accreditation, Concorde is on the APTA website.
www.apta.org/AM/Template.cfm?Section=CAPTE3&Template=/CM/HTMLDisplay.cfm&ContentID=74845

I'm confident that the PTA program will get accredited because the rest of the programs such as Respiratory Therapist, LVNs, and Medical Assistant were accredited on the FIRST attempt. The first PTA class is under pressure to do well. There are 8 terms for the program, each term is 10 weeks long. We are on term 2. So far we lost 2 classmates out of 30.

Hello, I was wondering what the tuition is and how much did financial aid cover. Also can you tell me if the entry exams were hard.

The two exams are relatively easy. The first exam if u pass is basic exam that pretty much determines whether u can take the second exam. The second exam called the hobbit exam consist of basic algebra and eenglish grammar. If u remember algebra 101 and eng101 ur pretty much in...most of it is basic knowledge. After gen ed is when the fun begins.

the 1st exam is 10 minutes long and answer as much as you can and passing is 18 or 19. 2nd is the Hobbit Exam combines English and Algebra, about 2 hours or so. Just type in Hobbit exam on google and they have some samples..... very easy.

I'm in my last semester at Cerritos College's PTA program (2 year program) and just have a few comments-
1. english, algebra, anatomy, and psychology? that's part of concorde's pta curriculum? Those are prereq's for Cerritos, so umm when do you guys learn actual PT theory and techniques? Sure we had anatomy, but it was advanced anatomy in more detail than the 4 unit pre-req.
2. $42,000? Wow, try like $5k total at cerritos and still being able to work part or full time during the program.
3. Finally- the program director is an MD? He a PT as well? Doesn't make a whole lotta sense, why do u think Dr's seek the opinions of PT's?
4. One good thing I can say about Concorde is that in my last clinical rotation at a world reknown hospital they were accepting an intern from Concorde's PTA program prior to their accredidation.

Don't Sign up. The North Hollywood location is accredited by the STATE not national so if you just used your degree in California your safe; but the Garden Grove, their newest location is not accredited and not even on the Accreditation List of Developing an accreditation. So AVOID both PTA programs at Concorde career college and go to community college instead.

CAPTE visited us this week and asked the students some questions... Looking forward to be accredited by May 2011. As PTA students we know more what's happening with our accreditation than what's posted on the web.

im interested in this program at the noho location as well..my question is.i've already completed certain gen ed classes at a local community college..does anyone know if they credit those classes? ive taken, anatomy, english, algebra, psychology, biology, sociology and health. i took all those classes over the course of 5 years while working full time..my original plan was to apply for a community college program but since that is probably gonna take me another 3-5 years, i started looking into Concorde. But I am definitely going to wait until May and see what happens w/their accreditation. i would rather not put all my hard work into a school if I will not be able to take the boards after graduation.

I was just curious if they credit any gen ed classes if anybody knows thanks in advance!

For those who are interested, the PHysical Therapist Assistant program at Concorde Career College in NOrth Hollywood is now an ACCREDITED PROGRAM per CAPTE. I'm in the junior class and our PTA Director confirmed this week. CAPTE should be updating their list of accredited schools. SO, Concorde NOrth Hollywood is the 6th school in California. ...Take my word!

Since it's accredited, expect many applicants applying for the progam and tuition to GO UP! Also, there is a developing PTA program in the Garden Grove campus.

PTA student Graduating class March 2012!

Wooo hoooooooo!

In reference to "Meeh" in Los Angeles, if you've taken any GE within the past 5 years, Concorde will count them. If over 5 years, you have to take them again!

Hope this helps!

PTA programs are Associate Degrees, no Bachelor's. If you want to pursue a higher learning in physical therapy, then becoming a Physical Therapist would be the next step, but you have to start over because PTA classes do not carry over to PT programs.

Cerritos College has almost a 2 year waiting list + 1 year GE + 2 PTA classes = 3-4 years of school. I already have a bachelor's and don't have time do another 4 years of school (getting old). I opted to pay the higher tuition and finish it in 20 months. I can pay off $42,000 of tuition in less than 3 years with a PTA salary.

By the way, the PTA program at Concorde in North Hollywood was just accredited (CAPTE will update this soon).

Pablo as student that may be joining the program, I am a bit concerned about the anatomy class. What is your advice to studying for the exams and class ? Are you saying the questions should be answered correctly if we memorize say the bold terms ? Thank You.

To Mark: Anatomy class was straight forward in Concorde. Questions on tests are based on bolded words and lecture and tutoring. About 30% of the test questions came from tutoring.

To Marym: The first class graduated in the beginning of May 2011. Job is plenty in Southern California. Some of them are working as PT Aides right now until they take the board exam in June and others have already been given job offers.

Vlad, I went to Santa Ana and attended the info session for OTA but the waiting list is 2-3 years even if I'm done with pre-reqs, its first come first serve basis so you have to wait coz tons of applicant. So, I'm thinking of stanbridge, you can get in right away its 16 months and about 36k. I just dont want to wait at least 2 years just to get in the OTA. Concorde Garden Grove is fine. Are you planning to get into OTA or PTA?

Well, my advice is to wait Stanbidge to be accredited. 36,000 is a lot money to invest with and you cant take the board if they are not accredited. I'm planning to take either pta or cota who comes first. I think concorde garden grove will be accredited by end of this year

Concorde Garden Grove's OTA program is still on applicant status and I think their program is going to be 20 months and around 40k while Stanbridge is in developing and are allowed to accept students, program lenght is 16 mos and 36k. I was gonna apply Stanbridge soon coz their next class starts on Aug 30 but it's way too far for me, I live in Santa Monica and their class is from Tues-Fri, that's gonna be a lot of driving for me for 16 mos. Have you shadowed PTA/OTA? Do you have more preference either OTA or PTA? Let's talk more, I need to talk to someone who's in the same situation as I am in right now. What's your email?

DLM83 in Palmdale, California said: Hi, I was wondering if any of you PTA students are actually in the North Hollywood Campus taking the actual course right now. Would like to know how the course is, and is it actually worth dropping out of JC general courses to go stright to the PTA program.

It would take me 3.5 years to get my PTA degree if I stayed with JC and 24 months if I go to Concorde.

I have the GI Bill and hopefully financial aid to help me out for Concorde.

I also would like to know how the proffesors are and how the classes are run. Is it a good school and what is the material like. I hear it is 8 hour days sometime class starts early am and sometime late afternoon. I would need to commute about an hour every day to attend.

Im actually getting out of the military in Jan next year and looking into doing a program like this! which GI bill do u have? post 9-11?

Do it, I got out 2007 and finished all my old GI bill. But my advice is go to North Hollywood is accredited. Community college take long wait list and very competitive and need to take a lot of classes to be competitive and wait for the waitlist. But my advice is take Anatomy and Physiology and medical terminology for preparation. And some PE theory from Rio Hondo college like Kinesiology. Rio has a lot of PTA related classes. This is good preparation for you. CC Holywood program is short so it will be intense studying. I think their curiculum is fine. Its in the student if he can pass the board. I talk to VA and they will pay all the finances plus housing allowance. HOAH!!!!

I had a lot of studying for anatomy and medical terms since I currently work as a Pharm tech for the Air Force... we had an intense program... 9 hours 5 days a week for 3 months... then 9 months on the job training courses. Im not too worried about cost since the post 9-11 GI bill will be a big help. Ive been working in a hospital for almost 4 years and while in afghanistan, got to work at the hospital there and witness PT/Nursing at a more intense setting.HUA!!!

I tried applying for Cerritos college PTA program but they denied me because my friend that goes there said many of her classmates have their undergrad in kinesiology. I looked in Concorde in the garden grove location but it is true. it is NOT accreditted and I know we have the gi bill but it would be nice to SAVE some gi bill money rather than blow it all on one school.

Go to the one in No HO... that one is accredited!

PTA2012 SENIOR in Lancaster, California

For all you future PTA's that are thinking of signing up. You will have to do 2 terms worth of gen ed. Even if you have taken them and past. Your Gen ED score cannot be lower than a C. If it is, then you will have to re-take gen-ed in Concorde. A's and B's may get transfered over. But there is a 5 year limit I believe. Meaning that if you took English 101 5 years ago and got an A, you still have to re-take English 101. The Gen-Ed consists of Anatomy, English 101A, Communications 101, Psychology, College Algebra, Anatomy B, English 101B, and Human Development (Another section of Psychology. If you guys decide to sign up great! After Gen-ED is when it gets harder and you get to the fun learning.

I used the chptr 33 post 9-11 gi-bill, and the yellow ribbon program...with that in mind add FAFSA and your tuition is paid for. Not to mention you get money for going to school every month. So yea bro your set. Just becareful with the financial aid crew cause I went through hell with them due to their incompetent mistakes. Just make sure the financial aid person knows what the hell their doin. On a good note, they have fixed the problem and my cash is back on track.
