You Get What You Pay For, and Education Is No Different!

You Get What You Pay For, and Education Is No Different!

My mother (may she rest in peace) once told me “There is nothing more expensive than buying “cheap paint.” Unfortunately, I did not listen to Mom’s advice and bought cheap paint anyway.

It was an expensive lesson, but a lesson learned.  I spent the weekend painting my apartment with the cheapest paint I could find. Sadly, I found out that when the paint dried, it did not look very good. Even after a third coat of paint, it still did not cover well, and the old paint showed through.

The following weekend, I went to the local paint store and bought the best paint money could buy.  What a difference!  It covered in one coat and looked bold, bright, and brilliant. It was much easier to paint, as the paint was clearly thicker and higher quality.

It was an expensive lesson, in both money and time invested.  Needless to say, I should have listened to my mom! I will never make the mistake of buying cheap paint again.  I was young and thought that saving money was smart. I never bought paint before and figured, “paint is paint.”  Even though my mom warned me, I wrote her off as old-fashioned.

What does cheap paint have to do with education? A lot. Painting takes time and effort, just like studying for a new career. What student wants to spend time and effort going to school, only to find out that their cheap education, like cheap paint, fell short?

Similar to cheap paint, a cheap education can be a waste of time.

Oftentimes, we get students who enroll in one of our healthcare training courses, because they need to retake a class they had already taken in a different, cheaper school. It did not take long for these students to realize that an inexpensive education, like cheap paint, was low-quality and/or did not train them adequately for their future in healthcare.

There are many schools in NYC that offer cheaper healthcare training than what The Manhattan Institute offers, but when I look at these cheap schools popping up, as well as many closing, I feel bad for the students. Unfortunately, unless you do your research, you will find out that just like cheap paint, there is a reason why schools offer shockingly cheap prices.

Running a school correctly is very expensive. I will not bore you with the details, but you can visit us anytime, and see that our facility, supplies, instructors, and equipment are all of the highest quality.

The Manhattan Institute is an ultra-modern, beautiful, and clean school in Midtown NYC. Students learn in a pristine and comfortable learning environment, which is proven to help students learn more efficiently.

Therefore, be aware of schools offering shockingly inexpensive classes! Just like cheap paint, there is a reason for the school’s price. Our 25 years of teaching Allied Medical classes has given us the experience to know what it takes to prepare our students for the work force, and it is costly.

Yes, we could cut corners and charge less, but we will never sacrifice quality for price, because at the end, just like cheap paint, cheap education results in a waste of time and money for our students.

We will let you decide!  Call us at 212-564-1234 to schedule an appointment and visit our NYC campus.
