IF YOU TRULY DESIRE A SCHOOL THAT WILL CATAPULT YOUR LIFE AND CAREER, GO TO THIS SCHOOL!! If could give them more stars I would. This school will do whatever they can to see their students succeed. I took the CNA class. Because of the services that they offer, I am now a Travel CNA; I live in New York! I brought what I learned at ACI to New York----they actually think I "go the extra mile"! The truth is that I received an all-around skill set a ACI that taught me how to serve and treat the patients that I am responsible for. Mrs. Ingram is by far the absolute BEST instructor I have ever had the pleasure of gleaning from. She gives complete book instructions, as well as skill training; BUT she also taught me what boundaries for a CNA truly are--and are not. I learned to be "patient centered"; to understand the abuse of "cutting corners", how to perform professionally as well as expeditiously, always with excellence.....I could go on and on...... I must say that the one-on-one with the career counselor has by far been the greatest asset to my career path---BY FAR! Because of the resume they helped me to build, I already had 3 job offers before completion of the class!! I was hired by a Travel Agency on my last day of class, the next week or so, I was in New York-----and I am STILL getting offers to date. There's no need to keep searching.....YOU FOUND YOUR SCHOOL RIGHT HERE!!!

Ms. Laura in Financial Aid was very helpful, friendly, and super nice! I truly appreciated all of the assistance she gave me. Also, our instructors Ms. Nikki, Mrs. Tawanna, and Ms. Bailey definitely understood the assignment! I was in the first cohort and boy it was tough, but very worth it! Wouldn’t trade my experience for anything in the world! Again, I thank those ladies for sticking with us and getting through.
