U.S. Career Institute

BACKGROUND
The U.S. Career Institute (USCI) is a distance learning institution that trains people for careers that can either be done out of their home, or in a traditional office setting. USCI is based out of Fort Collins, Colorado, but does all of their program training online so that students never have to leave home.

Pamela Weston developed a special step-by-step training program because she wanted people to be able to have professional training and still have time to spend with their families. The original training program that Ms. Weston developed later evolved into USCI. USCI is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council, State of Colorado Department of Higher Education, a member of the Colorado Private School Association and a member of the Better Business Bureau. USCI offers at home training in several different areas at affordable prices and even offers payment options.

CONCLUSION
USCI offers training in several areas that face a growing demand in the coming years. If there is a career path offered on USCI that interests you, try their program for a few days to see if it’s for you. USCI is constantly updating their site with new programs. It is difficult to know just how successful students of USCI are without doing some outside research. If you are looking to join the workforce or want to advance your career, this type of training can certainly help. USCI gives you plenty of options to choose from. You might even find your dream job while completing training for it in your own home.

I took their Medical Assistant program, before I decided to apply for nursing school. Their MA program was pretty intense, and very helpful. Glad I did it. They also mailed my certificate before completing my tuition, so that was another plus. I'm currently enrolled in there Paralegal program. I took a 3 month break; however, I only have 2 more courses left. Also, look into Penn Foster, and Ashworth career school. Both are pretty good as well, but I think US is better because of their customer service. Good Luck! posted Sep 16th, 2013 6:44 pm

I am a current student enrolled in the animal care/vet assistant program, I am close to completion and have already gotten a job in my field. The material was interesting and challenging and they are always there to help when you need it. I usually don't comment on products/services but I feel very strongly about promoting this because it has had such a big impact on my life! I really truly would recommend to anyone looking to further their education. posted Sep 6th, 2013 3:27 pm

I am currently enrolled in the Medical Claims and Billing Specialist program. I am on the last chapter of study, so I am now studying for the final exam....This course from start to finish is very professional. I know the information I am being taught is up to date and precise as I have friends working in this field and they have said the course of study was excellent. I am a mid life 51 year old gentleman who is making a huge career change and I am confident with the professionalism I harbor within and the training of this course that I will be working from home. Everyone I've had contact with at USCI has been very nice, professional and above all, HELPFUL! I have decided to take the Medical Coding class next.......I'M ON MY WAY! Thank you USCI! posted Mar 15th, 2012 9:53 pm

I have been trying to research information on the Medical Coding/Billing program offered at USCI. I just have one thing to say about the majority of the negative reviews I've read thus far....... Most of you who claim it's the school's fault that you can't get a job, cannot spell, or put a grammatically correct sentence together for sh*t!!!! It's disgusting to think that you would pay for a degree program which requires impeccable written & verbal skills, then blame the school because you can't spell!! posted Jan 20th, 2012 9:57 pm

I graduated from there with the MT program it is not stated in the contract that you sign or do they tell you when they are signing you up that you have to travel to CO for 4 weeks to take a class in order to get your degree all on your own expense. DO NOT TAKE THE MT PROGRAM AT USCI posted Jan 13th, 2012 1:45 am

I am considering the paralegal course. I've always wanted to do this and I don't see it possible to atend classes at a local school seeing as life hasn't handed me the best lemons. I barely make it now and don't see how things could go any worse by getting some sort of education under my belt. I feel like either way, I have to pass tests and the school is accredited. I feel like this should be what matters to an employer, as well as attitude and personality, and dedication is a must if you do online schooling...right? Wouldn't they see this? I've heard from many that things you learn in school help, but on the job training is where your education becomes a career. As for me, I know one person who did the paralegal course through USCI, although she already was employed when attending. She is now going to UMSL for criminal justice and is doing wonderful. For me, and hopefully for many of you, I think research is something that should be highly sought after. I just talked to a lady at Kaplan and found out I can get my associates in a year and a half and they have high ratings. So people, get out there, talk to people, and do it! Talk to paralegals and potential employers as well as students and get their view on things as well. I hope this helps, as it has helped me just sitting here and processing these things in my head. Good luck, everyone! posted Dec 16th, 2011 7:36 pm

That's why you read the fine print. I took dental before, its exactly what I learned in class. The font is for a 5th grader though. posted Dec 10th, 2011 12:00 am

I graduated from USCI's Criminal Justice program early in 2010. The course material was very accurate and up to date. They sent my certificate to me as soon as I completed the course, and still allowed me to make monthly payments until the account was paid in full. This institution definitely has my recomendation! posted Oct 30th, 2011 10:05 pm
