How does online learning work?
Your course will be delivered by Moodle. You can access Moodle from any web browser so you can work whenever and where ever you have time. You can also interact with your tutors and other students in the Moodle environment. Online learning allows you to make the best use of your time and puts all the resources you need at your finger tips. There are no set course start dates, you can start when ever you are ready.
Your tutors will check in on your progress and you do need to set up time to do your work. Most of The Career Academy courses are designed so that you do one module a week. But if life gets busy you can take longer, or if you have time you can do more than one module a week.
Where do I login and how do the assessments work?
Are any of your courses funded by Work and Income?
No, however we offer interest free payment plans at $25 per week. If you need more information please call a course advisor on 0800 342 829.
When will I receive my certificate?
If you have paid for your course in full, and all work has been completed, allow up to 14 working days to recieve your certificate.
If you are on a payment plan, you will receive your certificate after your balance has been paid in full.
What happens if I want to cancel my course?
What support will I get?
Can you help me get a job?
Yes - employers constantly approach The Career Academy looking for students and employers also advertise for jobs on The Career Academy Job Centre (available on Moodle once you enrol). Check out our Job Ready Program!
Can I complete the course via correspondence or can you print the course notes out for me?
Yes - simply select this upgrade option when you enrol and we will send you printed course notes. You will still need to submit your assignments online via Moodle. There is a fee of $100 + GST for printing your course notes.
