I'm an Army Wife and mom of a three year old. I've always loved animals and have always wanted to work in the vet world. When I discovered what a Vet Tech IS, I decided to do some research on schools and found Penn Foster. It has everything I was looking for. Flexible schedule perfect for me. The only drawback I find is that you have to at least log on to the forums once ... [Read more]

I should be the poster boy for this course.
August 12, 2011
I completed the Computer Repair course and then put an ad in the newspaper offering in home computer repair. In 5 days I was able to quit my crappy telemarketing job. Withing 2 years I had built my business into a corporation. I went from $10 and hour to $150,000 after taking this course. To be fair, I was always good with computers as it does come natural for me. This course did give me ... [Read more]

Medical Billing & Coding Program
February 23, 2012
Penn Foster will allow you to receive shipment of all your text books at once, and this makes moving at your own pace more feasible. It took me two years to complete the program, taking 2-3 extensions, for which I paid $75 extra per each one. Having had previous healthcare experience, some of the initial courses were redundant, however, they are necessary for those with no experience. The courses on medical terminology, anatomy & physiology, ... [Read more]

I had a few family members who raved about Penn Foster and how great it was and how simple.. Yes.. How "simple" it was. I should have listened to those words more carefully. I have noticed that everyone on here who likes it all say how fast and EASY it is. This ... [Read more]

High School Diploma
August 14, 2012
I took the high school course. I found the textbooks laid out in an orderly fashion. I was guided step-by-step how to proceed in my studies, was even given a timeline for when tests should be taken. Of course, life gets in the way sometimes and I didn't keep on the timeline they set up, but I did complete the course within the allotted time. I would recommend Penn Foster to anyone. I see what ... [Read more]

Penn Foster VT program beware
April 30, 2012
I am a 3rd semester student in the VT program...because my credits don't transfer anywhere else (that I would want to go). I certainly would not take the VT course with this school. Looking at the other comments, it appears that most of the complaints about Penn Foster come from the vet tech students. It is true that Dr Sirois WAS very rude to most of the students. I still have her emails to prove ... [Read more]

Take note of how many complaints there are with the better business bureau -- AND THERE ARE ALOT !!!!! ... Research your state -- these clowns arent even recognized in ALOT of states ( even though they will tell ... [Read more]
