Can't find a job
February 16, 2013
This school has NOT done anything to help me get an internship or a job. I COULD NOT even get a volunteering position at the hospital with their useless career diploma. Their booklets weren't even that helpful in preparing for the PTCB exam. I ended up buying other study guides off of amazon, passed the exam, and became certified. None of the pharmacies wanted to hire me because I attended an online program, with NO ...

Not a bad school
January 9, 2013
Hmmm I'm a little confused to on the negative reviews. I do agree shipments of the books is kind of slow but I guess it doesn't bother me as much because I do work full time. I haven't had to contact the school at all so not sure about customer service and I undeestand not shipping the diploma until its paid . I don't think it's a scam at all it's on you to read ...

Back in 1993 took the automotive tech diploma course and ended up having a nearly 20 year career because of the training I received at Penn foster. I was injured on the job and can no longer work in the field and so I returned to once again get career training at this school.

Ensure that you DO NOT take ANYTHING that you are being told on the phone as the truth...Do your own research in this so-called "school".. 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 ...

Double Check
August 18, 2011
MAKE SURE you check to see if Penn Foster is certified in your state! I almost signed up for it but found out that the certifications wouldn't mean a thing for me. Check with the board of Pharmacy for your home state before registering.

One thing I will tell you is you have to read your materials. One more thing, I found out early on was the the self check at the end of the each chapter will not help you on the exam. Be diciplined stay off of facebook ect..READ YOUR BOOKS ! I just pass my state certification and I'm proud to say I'm a "CphT". The only people complaining are the ones that don't want to ...

I AM going to apply to see if it's really worth it to let you guys know. I've heard A LOT of negative comments on it, however, I am going to try out Penn Foster regardless. You can tell me I will regret it but every experience is worth it to either brag or complain about. I will get on Penn Foster for myself and for some of you guys out there so wish me luck! hehe. I have a bad feeling but I'll see^_^

I've taken more than one course with Penn Foster and have never had any problems with them. The shipments were very prompt and they have always worked with me and I've benefited from their courses.

I haven't had any problems with penn foster, i have had issues with mycaa about paying them the tuition but penn foster has been great esp. since i can do my lessons at my own pace it took me 6 months to get my high school diploma with them, and now in a few weeks ill be ready to take my ptcb exam.

So Far so Good.  I enjoy the study units.  I am wondering if this is going to be enough study to pass the exam. is not affiliated with Penn Foster in any way.
