What do students think of our courses?

"As soon as I added the course into my C.V, I was invited for a job interview ... and then I received a job offer and I was so glad to accept it!" Keiko Nishimi, Certificate in Accounts Administration & Payroll

"Was a great course. Thank you. Your pricing is good. I got a job after completing this course!" Amanda Elliott, Certificate in Medical Reception

"I decided to study with The Career Academy because of its close affiliation with the NZBAI and CAANZ was definitely what tipped the balance, and the affordability of its online courses. It gives a no-nothing fink (as I was two months ago!) like me a foot in the door. It was very encouraging to receive the positive feedback from tutors and there was no question that I felt well supported throughout my studies. as with all study, it pushed buttons I’d forgotten I had, but ultimately I now feel better about myself and what I have to offer a potential employer. I will be recommending Career and am about to enrol on the Diploma in Accounting course" Beverley Lowton-Young, Certificate in Bookkeeping

"Thanks so much for your support throughout my study with The Career Academy, it has been an enjoyable learning experience. You have been very supportive and encouraging with your feedback, regarding my assessments. I have had several job interviews and would recommend your courses for a person wanting to get their confidence and accounting knowledge up to be able to gain employment in the accounts profession". Debra Sayer, Business Administration and Payroll
