PennFoster RVT - Upsides are Worth it for me
January 16, 2015
I'm almost done with my first semester in the PennFoster RVT program, so I know I can't say too much so far. UPSIDES: - I find the program extremely affordable. I don't have the time or money to go to a brick and mortar school. -I work full-time as a vet tech at a clinic that supports my goals and wants to help me with my practicums, etc. I think if I didn't work in ...
too much money for all the problems!!

Wow... i was so excited when I found this site. I have been wanting to write about pennfoster's online vet program since I left! Where to begin! Let's start with the people that work in the office. If you want a school where it takes FOREVER to get a human being on the phone, then choose this school. And then when you actually get someone, their phone lines are so awful that you can barely ...
not worth it.

I am a student in the vet tech program and I would never recommend Penn Foster College for anything. First off they are not regionally accredited so if you want to transfer Penn Foster College (PFC) credits to a real college/university you can not. PFC does not care that its credits are worthless, I have asked. They will hardly ever answer your questions and when they do its always a round about answer so your ...
Just because one does not like or it is hard or you are expected to put in work and effort does not mean the school is a scam.

First off, I will state that even though people may have some issues with Penn Foster, it is not a scam. Furthermore, while is was not in the distant past, the Veterinary Technician program is now one of the only few online program accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) - they are fully accredited and was initially accredited in 2006. Here is the list of accredited online programs on the AVMA website: https://www.avma.org/ProfessionalDevelopment/Education/Accreditation/Programs/Pages/vettech_distance_learning.aspx. ...

I am enrolled in Penn Foster right now and I am working up to get my Associate Degree as a Veterinary Technician. Right now im already a full time Vet Tech at a local clinic and im just trying to finish my college education. When I first enrolled I really enjoyed the program but shortly after I realized how hard it was to keep up. I wish Penn Foster made it easier to understand what ...
Will not prepare you for the field

I attended Penn Foster's vet tech associate's program for two semesters before leaving. I do not want to come off completely bashing this institution; it may lead to employment for some people. It just was not for me. There is really no classroom interaction and very little interaction with instructors. They basically just send you their proprietary textbooks, which are really more like cheap paperback pamphlets, then have you take multiple choice quizzes online to ...
Don't sign up for this program

I started this program in Feb of 2007. Due to them taking their time sending materials, not crediting me with time spent in online groups, not giving me info about my first practicum, I had to start the program all over at the end of my 3rd semester. Here it is 2013 and I'm still trying to graduate, never mind that I'm already licensed by my state and don't actually need to finish this program, ...
