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.

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 the Learning Platform. There is a fee of $100 + GST for Certificates, and $200 + GST for Diploma courses.
