OTA/PTA Program

The PTA program at PIMA Mesa is not all it's cracked up to be. I'm currently a student there. Here are a few problems you may want to consider:
- The Anatomy teacher doesn't know her material. The class has to tell her the answers to most of what she is 'teaching'. When you ask her a question about the material she says "I don't know" and "don't worry too much about it". Don't worry about my knowledge and the quality of my education?!?
- The Intro to PTA instructor will never answer student's questions. You will become very familiar with her catch-phrase, too... "what does the book say?". Yes, we are responsible for reading the class material, but if you do that and need clarification, you will not get it in this program. Either the teachers aren't properly screened for knowledge, or they are just getting paid not to care.
- I didn't sign up for this program to enter a high school setting where the teachers are the ones giving attitude at any (reasonable, mind you) question. This is supposed to be a learning establishment. Not a popularity contest with the teachers; not a place where you keep your mouth shut and pay $25, 000 to scrape what info you can out of the reading material. I'd skip the program to buy the books online and teach myself of I could - it's basically what I'm doing now.
Parts of this program are great - it's shorter and it's accredited. But you pay A LOT more for sub par knowledge here. If you can wait for Gateway, do it. Save yourself the money and be better prepared to enter the field as a PTA. I hope this is helpful.
