Alumni--be careful as Beth Apel sweet talks thatQuite BrightPreMed and Medical
Alumni--be careful as Beth Apel sweet talks that she is going to work with you. She will get rid of you any way she can. IE: She works with the company to cover her basis and set you up through employers. You will get low interviews and can tell by them that she is working with them to cover her basis. Real two-faced

So glad that someone else wrote regarding thePreMed and Medical
So glad that someone else wrote regarding the placement services with Beth. She did the same thing to me and did not bother as am staying in my field. That is a shame as I know who this is. Look into all areas of the field before you would apply through PTI as this is a certificate costing a lot of money vs. another college for associate degree. Glad I kept my present job. All Beth could find for me was front office interviews. She does this to people. Hopefully more will come forward.

Placement services are horrible.Quite BrightPreMed and Medical
Placement services are horrible. Graduated 4.0, perfect attendance and with extensive experience in corporate world of administrative, medical field; Beth Apel can not seem to get me an interview for a billing position. I also worked for a start up company with an extensive financial background. She will side with any company matter the issue to keep them coming back to her. A temporary to hire might be better. Does not like to talk, therefore, will not deal with it. Would not count on ghe Medical billing/ coding class. Community colleges offer associate programs, half the cost and WORK to place people. LOOK AWAY FROM HERE!!
