    I chose the career academy Because I was contacted straight away after my request by you very supportive personnel who has explain everything to me. It was done through your website online service and on the phone as well. Some of the questions in assignment for Payroll should be rephrased. For example. Can a child apply for IRD number? What is the meaning of apply here? Children cannot apply for IRD number by themselves, but surely they can have an IRD number. So would be easier to understand the question if it is straight forward like Can a child have an IRD number? The study was really enjoyable. Easy to follow topics with well organised structure. Tutors were absolutely brilliant in helping.

    I chose the career academy Because it is via correspondence and working full time, this is very helpful. Perhaps the assessments a little clearer as to what is expected. Overall a great course, for me it was quite hard as I have not worked in finance, didn't pass school cert maths (over 20 years ago) and haven;t done anything like this since. I am glad I did the course as it has given me confidence to proceed further with other finance/accounting courses.

    My experience studying with the Career Academy has been excellent after completing my Certificate in Business Administration I decided to achieve higher and enroll in the Diploma in Business Administration and this course also has been great ( Still completing). What I like about these courses I can study at my own pace and in my own comfort zones. It is also affordable by using the plan payments and help is always available when needed by the awesome team. I definitely recommend any course with The Career Academy.

    This course is pretty good actually, I like it a lot. The content is reasonable; everything I need is already there so I don’t really need to go looking for anything. Having multiple tutors is helpful. It can also result in miscommunication in terms of grading assessments, but overall it’s been fine.

    This is the second course I’m taking with the Career Academy. It’s a lot more challenging than the first course but I’m excited to work my way through it. The tutors have been really great at getting back to me and at providing feedback to help me address any questions I have. It’s hard, but worth it, because it is going to be super rewarding to complete this course. I generally learn better in an in-class setting, but this course is laid out really well so I’m actually learning a lot.

    Great course with great information. Any of the tutors/staff I have had contact with have exceeded my expectations for customer service. I have already recommended the cert in business admin to two of my fellow workmates and they are loving it also. I was attracted to the Career Academy because of the ease of access, being able to do courses online made it quicker and easier for me to complete so promptly. The only thing I could recommend is perhaps having printer friendly versions of the pages/modules as I find it easier to write my notes directly on the pages. Also makes it easier to refer to your notes in real life situations so that you can implement the learnings in real life situations with ease.
