The guy who moves furniture for the school is the one that makes the tests..Literally. Teachers have absolutely no clue what is on the test that they are supposedly teaching you for. NOTHING they teach is EVER on a test. Do the math. This place is freaking unbelievable. TOTAL WASTE OF $20k. I cant believe they have completely screwed over the entire school. The format of EVERYTHING has changed 100%.. And it just gets worse every test. Its insane. DO NOT GO TO ANHO. Full of CROOKS. This is a 100% honest opinion. I am a employed Firefighter/Paramedic for years. I have been a part of numerous programs. This BY A FREAKING mile tops them all. Worst program I HAVE EVER BEEN A PART of. I am actually in the process of suing them. They will get what is coming. That school absolutely needs to be SHUT DOWN. I hope I have my hand in the process. they desrve it. I have never been put in a position like they have put me in. TOTALLY ridiculous catty employees.. Apparently they have zero credibility. Accreditation here is worthless people have said. Employers laugh at you when you tell them you attended ANHO. DO NOT GO HERE. Director REARDON IS A CROOK Director GACKENHEIMER IS A CROOK They just want your money and don't want to return it. PONZI SCHOOL. This is all 100% TRUE Enough said.

I am so disappointed that I chose this school! They cram 100 students into one classroom. We now have a new president who has chosen to make the test questions up himself which is a total disaster because he leaves out pertinent information. I feel sorry for the instructors because even they don't know what is happening from day to day & are becoming frustrated themselves! If I could sum it up for you it would be..NO CONSISTENCY! Lab rats. You would think they would have figured this out by now. I do not suggest any one attend this school at least until they fire the new president which will be soon I suppose & we are all hoping for...
