They say you can graduate in as little as 6 months, but I signed up for the forensic science program December 9th 2012 and completed it on Feb 17th 2012. Then I signed up for the private investigation program on Jan 5th 2012 and I have 5 lessons to complete as of today.
I had my course for 2 months from the date I ordered it (- 1 week in Fed Ex transit ) in PT Aide. I was working on Achieving Service Excellence for AS Psychology too. Many days I did nothing on both subjects. All I'm saying is with dedication I could have finished 8 lesson in PT Aide in 4 weeks or less. I keep getting stuck between Associates, Diploma, Associates , Diploma. I decided to stop both and just finish the Diploma and once done I can concentrate on the associates. Yesterday I finished.
Have fun and take it all in.
Lots of reading but tests are very doable.
Waiting for books is the worst. If you paid in full request ALL of the books now so you will have them later.
Post in student help desk for the books.
Pay attention to the test NAMES when you submit. I didnt and I put the right answers to the wrong test.. grrr.
They will NOT fix that for me.
Just ask me and I can answer. I just finished today.
I did pay in full. Can we really request all lessons at once?? That would be pretty sweet since I was absent the day they passed out patience. I hate waiting.
Not to mention that this was the majority of complaints by students when I was doing my research.
YES . I paid in full and Just asked if they can send the rest of the program and they did.
Post your request in the help desk in the form of a question and the admin people will help.
Yes. Starting on 2nd book now. Just reading about you getting all your materials and books. I think I may do that.
Although they are quite fast in sending, but I'm heading back to Africa and it would be nice to have them. Not sure if they would send my stuff th Ghana.
I am taking this course. I am starting lesson 7. I signed up about 3 weekks ago. By the time I received the books and received the second one which was back ordered,I could have completed it by now. I am a bit disappointed in Ashworth's attempt at an oline course as I completed my PhD on line a few years back. I just wanted something that would help prepare for the Tennessee State Exam. If I knew the course materials were going to be copied from another book, I would have just purchased that book and studied it.
There is really no instructor for this course. They have tutors who will call your back by appointment if you have a question. A few of the tests have one or two tricky questions, but other than that it is easy. I am learning something and I guess that is what counts. Ashworth has a long way to go to become a Quality Online institution.
Good luck with the course.
BTW way be sure to call them asap and request that all the manuals be sent so you will have the next one as you complete the first one.
