    i chose to study with the career academy as this was the only distance learning facility that was available for this course that i could find. And distance learning was the most Convenient way for me study at the moment I found that the course was easy to understand instruction wise and the information was useful and was easier to understand than i thought it would be

    Being unsuccessful in obtaining an Accounts-related job as a recent graduate, I felt that I needed to gain some relevant experience and knowledge in an area, and the certificates offered provided me that avenue to add some accounting experience to my repertoire. 5

    I chose to study with the career academy because a friend recommended it – Improvement: The entirety flow of the course content, sometimes one subject has been discussed and mentioned again in another section. But overall it is good (for the GST). Wish you all the best, the tutors are very reasonable, helpful. great!

    Still I dont know why i chose The career academy. 2 months before i got a random call from this academy. And they asked about the courses. I still dont know how did you find my number also? But in the meantime i was planning to some training or short course related to accounting because i am 4 in computer and all that. So that I thought that if i took any small course on accounting i could get job. it was a coincident, i was thinking of doing something and got the call. Feel like laughing now. finally done. And most delightful thing is i have an interview tomorrow for accounting payroll. I think doing assignment is very much helpful for memorising the things what you learnt in the course. So i suggest to put more cases in the assignment so that students could practice more. In my cases i could manage to find some other accounting cases to keep practising.I would like to mention one thing here that i was very new for accounting when i had been starting this course. I had not done any kind of accounting course or job before. I tried to do my best and i never copied any things from any else website or book. I learnt many things on the site but never copied them. I did my assignment according to my understanding level. I never asked anyone to help me for this course. Today i feel proud of myself of being passed. Finally i can say i passed by myself. And i did it in 2 months.

    My certificate in dog & pet grooming isn’t going too bad, I decided to go online and use an outside book to help me with a particular part that I’m stuck on but if I need further help I’ll definitely ask the tutors.

    I’m a bit disappointed that there’s not a more practical focus, but I’m only about halfway through so I’m hopeful for more practical aspects later on.

    I wanted to do a Dog Grooming Course, and this course with The Career Academy was the only one I could find that provided a great course for a reasonable price.

    I decided to enrol with The Career Academy because I needed a course I could do from home. A bit more on grooming dogs would have been invaluable as that’s the field I wish to take but in saying that I really enjoyed learning about the other aspects of this course and looking forward to doing more studies through you, I would like more info packs on dog grooming courses please. Still excellent overall.
