Online Anger Management Class Reviews

Online Anger Management Class Reviews


The National Anger Management Association says that there are hundreds of thousands of people mandated to take an anger management course by a court, school or employer every year.  Our research team connected with ten colleges and twenty probation offices nationwide to survey a whopping total of 500 people who took anger management classes online.  This was a giant undertaking for our group and we are pleased to share the results with you.

There are many websites offering anger management classes online.  We have narrowed our reviews down to the top few websites our respondents used.  These also happen to be the biggest advertisers in google, which does not necessarily mean they are the best quality programs.



What we learned is that all of these websites are offering the same basic information.  Nobody reinvents the wheel on anger management.  One website does not have a secret recipe to fix an anger management problem that the others lack.  As a result, when people have to take an Anger Management Class Online, they are generally concerned with a few factors:

1) Will my certificate be accepted by my court, school, or employer?
2) Can I take the class on any device?
3) Can I log in and out of the class?
4) Are there tests?
5) Can I reach customer service?
6) Are there hidden fees for certificates and are certificates given out instantly?
7) How is the material delivered?

We asked.  You answered.  These are the Online Anger Management Class reviews based on the experience of 500 different individuals:

angermanagementseminar.com 
3.0 out of 5.0 stars
Anger Management Training Institute

These guys get only 3 stars for many reasons.  For starters, the website is overstuffed, outdated and chaotic.  Good luck sorting through the drama on this site to get to the information you need.  Beyond that, they claim that their Anger Management Class Online was written by "experienced Lawyer with extensive Family Court experience & knowledge."  I'm not sure how far that goes in the credibility department for anger management.  They make vague mention of "open access course study from your own home" and an "anger management handbook."  We found out the course comes in pdf file.  You email your answers in.  They email you a certificate back.  Eventually.





The 3 stars that they do get are for their accreditations.  We verified the long list of accreditations they list, which include being approved Continuing Education Providers in Florida and similar certifications in Texas, California and Illinois.

Pricing is $65 across the board and they offer Online Anger Management Class in increments of 8, 16 or 24 hours.  Customer service eventually replies, but not with any sense of urgency.  We did not find any online complaints or BBB complaints.  

Respondents said they give a ton of information, it is boring and difficult to read, and the lack of technology involved is frustrating.  There are tests and we are told they are a pain.  However, 80% of our respondents reported that their certificates were accepted.

To answer the questions asked:
1) Will my certificate be accepted by my court, school, or employer? - 80% say yes
2) Can I take the class on any device? - No
3) Can I log in and out of the class? - No login. It's a pdf.
4) Are there tests? - Yes
5) Can I reach customer service? - Eventually
6) Are there hidden fees for certificates and are certificates given out instantly? - No
7) How is the material delivered? - pdf


A.J. Novick Group, Inc.
4.0 out of 5.0 Stars

Angerclassonline.com got great reviews for their Online Anger Management Class.  If you have to take an Anger Management Class Online, this might be the way to go (unless affordability is a factor).  The website is easy to navigate.  Dr. Novick is straight-forward in explaining who he is, what he does and what he offers.  He has accreditations in California, Florida and Texas.  He is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.


The class can be taken on any device.  There is 24/7 customer support.  We tested it.  It works.  You can log in and out at your leisure and the certificate price is included in the class price.  Certificates are instantly downloaded upon completion.  

The offerings for his Anger Management Class Online are in increments of 4, 8, 10, 12, 16, 26, 36 and 52.  Prices begin at $95 for the 4 hour class and go all the way up to $995 for the 52 hour class.  The 4.0 stars would have easily been 4.5 had it not been for the lack of affordability.

None of our respondents had problems with their certificates being accepted. 

The questions we set out to answer are as follows:
1) Will my certificate be accepted by my court, school, or employer?  Yes
2) Can I take the class on any device?  Yes
3) Can I log in and out of the class? Yes
4) Are there tests?  Yes
5) Can I reach customer service?  Yes

CourseforAnger.com
3.0 out of 5.0 Stars

Course for Anger is part of an organization that is a jack of all trades, master of none.  We are told from the probation officers we spoke with that they came onto the scene of online education for court-mandated classes a couple of years ago.  They have little respect in the industry as they offer courses in everything from food handling to drivers ed to fire safety to anger management.  They specialize in nothing.  They are experts in nothing.  
What this means for you is that prior to taking CourseforAnger.com's Online Anger Management Class, you definitely want to check with your court, probation officer, school or employer to verify that they will accept it.  Many people had problems with their certificates being accepted.  


They do offer a "lowest price guarantee."  If you take their class, you should take them up on it.  We found cheaper Anger Management Classes Online.  Send them a link and they will honor that price for you.  They allege low prices ($25 for 4 hours, $45 for 8 hours, $65 for 12 hours and $85 for 16 hours) although they are actually comparable.  Most courts order 8 hours and the 8 hour class is found for $65 on multiple sites.  

In addition to rolling the dice on acceptance with a CourseforAnger.com certificate, they have a timer installed that requires you to be logged in for the entire amount of hours in your course purchase.

Most of these online courses allow you to complete it at your own pace but not CourseforAnger.com.  They have a timer installed that prevents you from advancing to the next page until a specified time period is up.  You cannot walk away and do something else because as soon as the screen times out, their timer stops ticking. This is a lot of aggravation for a certificate that may or may not be accepted. On top of that, there is no way you can spend 4 minutes on a page that has two sentences on it.  The content on this site is scarce.   The reviews were so bad that we purchased the course ourselves to give you some firsthand information.

On a positive note, their content is easily accessible and you can take the course on any device.

Here is how Course for Anger stacked up
1) Will my certificate be accepted by my court, school, or employer? 50/50 chance
2) Can I take the class on any device?  Yes
3) Can I log in and out of the class?  Yes, but you are timed and must stay logged in for the duration of the course, even if it is in small increments
4) Are there tests? No
5) Can I reach customer service?  They may or may not reply eventually
6) Are there hidden fees for certificates and are certificates given out instantly?  No, yes
7) How is the material delivered?  Online learning software

Since we originally wrote this blog, Certified Court Classes discontinued their anger management courses.  


Success With Logan Anger Management Classes

3.5 out of 5.0 Stars


Success with Logan Anger Management is owned by William Smith, an alleged licensed counselor.  It is important to point out that we are not offered any information about what state he is licensed in and with a name like William Smith it is like looking for a needle in a haystack.  We are told he worked for the "Department of Children Services," although there is no mention of what state "the department" was in.  There is not an about us link.  Odd, but that's ok.  

What we like about Logan is that there is a course verification page.  Court officers or others can verify a certificate of completion online without calling.  We aren't sure how much good this does you though.  Like Course for Anger, Success with Logan is a jack of all trades.  They offer "John School" for those charged with soliciting a prostitute.  They offer an array of course options, including theft courses, domestic violence, parenting, online community service and several other options. 

We have mixed reviews on court acceptance.  We have mixed reviews on the ease of use for the course.  Some people had problems logging on.  The pricing starts at $24.95 for the 4 hour class and goes up from there.  They claim to have the lowest price guarantee, which you should take advantage of if you find a less expensive course. 

Here are answers to our review questions:
1) Will my certificate be accepted by my court, school, or employer?  50/50
2) Can I take the class on any device? No
3) Can I log in and out of the class?  Yes
4) Are there tests?  Yes
5) Can I reach customer service?  Yes, within 3 days they reply
6) Are there hidden fees for certificates and are certificates given out instantly? No, No
7) How is the material delivered? Online course
