Fraud- scam.Quite BrightPublic Health
Fraud- scam. Once they tap you for financial aid assistance to the MAX (they are for profit and will rob you) they will then tell you have a "GAP" loan that you never signed up for and expected to PAY THE SCHOOL EACH WEEK

The school is a complete ripoff.Other
The school is a complete ripoff. Most of the teachers are not professional, or even know how to teach.

My externship placement was a sorry joke. I finally got into one at the very end. I did 95% of the work by handing over 30 resumes. When staff realized I was not getting one they finally stepped in to help me. PPC did not help me get a job. I finally got in temporarily at the place I did my externship 10 months later, after many desperate attempts I literally applied for and gave out 60 plus resumes.

Pioneer Pacific College is a school with theBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Pioneer Pacific College is a school with the purpose of helping people improve their life with career based education. The classes are geared toward skills needed in specific job markets based on our major. Some of the classes are basic but I think most people think they are above basic skills. Based on my experience with students the ones that complain are the ones that are not doing well and are not getting the education they are paying for. There are some truly amazing instructors at this school. Sure there are both and good things about the school, but that is the same at other colleges I have attended. The hands on education with additional help when I need it it great. I also appreciate that I don't have to take a bunch of classes that have nothing to do with my chosen field. I wanted classes that help me in my chosen career path and that is what I got. You get out of an education what you put into it and there is plenty to get at Pioneer Pacific College.
