    I chose to study with the Career Academy based on the first initial phone call I had with the operator! She was lovely and so helpful and she had me sold with in the first few minutes! I really enjoyed my course and it has taught me so much and I can wait to begin the next chapter in my life as a qualified Wedding Planner. And a special mention to Dilip who without his feedback I would not have pushed myself to do better and achieve what I achieved. So thank you Dilip and everyone at the Career Academy for a truly pleasurable choice of studying and always being supportive of your students!

    I like how the course is online and is flexible to my needs.
    Easy to use system.
    Tutor responds promptly

    If i did another course i would get the course notes manually as it is easier to go back over the notes
