    Whatever your reasons are to up skill, then the Career Academy is the way to go – because of the benefits you get while studying.
    Most courses i have come across, University and/or AUT are not industry related and more theory driven, by the time you complete your studies, you’ve lost half the time trying to catchup with industry practices and processes. The courses are beneficial, if you apply yourself to your studies and do some proper research and not just accept what is put in front of you…and that is important too because this is where the discipline comes in, put in the time to do some good research, because your knowledge base expands exponentially. Not to mention the small interest free payments you can pay off each week towards your studies while you work and NO student loan – thank the Lord! I’ve enjoyed the course and happy i’ve completed it, i have gained the respect and confidence from my Executive team and work colleagues because of the qualification/knowledge i have now gained which helps me personally (in my wallet) and the ability to add value to my work and my organisation every day…did i mention NO student loan? Yay for me! I can get my weekends back. Yesssss!!

    I feel I need to have a certificate to assist in securing a job. Jess suggested I might enjoy the Diploma as it has a significant amount of study on Project Management. I did enjoy that aspect of it. Hi, yes the course was 4 but as the course description suggested 300 hours study I was expecting a lot more, likely practical application. I found each section/assignment took a couple of hours each to complete the reading & assessment. This was disappointing. I completed the course within a calendar month while doing a part time job, normal amounts of exercise & other voluntary activities I perform for two groups. I suggest I likely did 60 – 70hours of study rather than 300 hours.
    The impression the hours to be spent impacted on how I felt about the course fee.
    I considered it would be value for money if I would be studying for 4 or 5 months. I was quite looking forward to it.
    Now the value will be related to whether I am able to secure a job.

    The price and free tablet. And that the course is recognised in New Zealand There are many grammar and spelling errors. Two of the assignments were identical for the certificate and diploma for business administration. The diploma should be a bit more challenging in that regard. I enjoyed the course a lot, more than I expected to.

    I was searching for a online course and the careers academys pathway programme stood out the most to me No areas needed to be improved. I think the most important tool for studying is having tutors available when and if needed and the tutors were.

    I chose to study with the career academy because you can finish at your own time. The assignment and the material dont feel like its L6 at all it feel like the same level as certificate difficulty or below. I am very upset that i actually have to pay $2450 exclude GST i feel like the course suppose to be around $1200 – $1500 which is still justifiable.I feel like being cheated and hopping that the material and the assignment its alot more challenging like the actual level 6 as advertise. I still require to pay $2450 regardless and i think anyone that take these course also expect alot more until they got disappoint and rob by these Remove a duplicate contents from module 2 and 3 it is un acceptable Increase the assignment difficulties and put more contents on each module. I feel like the course material its 2ly put together and to lazy to add any depth into the course.Please reduce the price for these course its un acceptable to charge it for $1700 while the content feel like downgrade compare cert of BA.

    I am a single mother to a 4 year old i dont have time to travel to a crowded classroom far away when i can learn from the comfort and convenience of my home. The course was well priced and well set out and covered a lot.The visual youtube videos were helpful too. A printed booklet of the entire course would be a nice touch to send to each student as i had printer issues and lack of funds to buy ink during my course and i had to hand write a lot which was very time consuming. I was blown away at how easy it was to follow the online course and complete assessments. I found at times a slight delay in receiving graded work in order to start the next phase i was under the impression i had to pass my graded topic first but later found out i could start the next topic regardless although at times i found this impossible to do. I also found working on a macbook air made things more difficult in the excel assessments and perhaps info on what to do or allow for if using an apple mac air book would be helpful.
    Overall the course was very well explained and set out and my tutors were all on hand for any queries and gave great feedback and i have to say on one occasion i was asked to use my own words in answering a question and had come across slightly plagiarising the text i had read from, the thing is the words used in the text are words i would use in everyday language so i re wrote the answers and i embraced this critique as it made me work that much bit harder and i enjoyed that.
    I added a Xero certificate to my diploma and would like to know when i can start this
    and i look forward to receiving my certificate in due course.

    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.

    Grammar,Spelling, seems as though its translated 2ly from another language. Assessment qurstions are vague and 2ly represent the actual expectation from the tutors in order to pass. Near the end of my diploma, marking was slow. Seems to be inconsistency regarding what is and is not acceptable regarding use of course content. That said, overall I feel I gained vast knowledge of the content, found the pace easy, the tutors friendly and helpful and enjoyed my studies immensely Ease of correspondence, great price

    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.

    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.

    Some of the content in earlier topics/modules might need to be re-checked or proof read as there were some small spelling and grammatical errors that I feel could be corrected to improve the quality of content provided to students. I was referred by a family member and was interested in being able to do the course at my own pace. I really appreciate the positive and encouraging comments that all the tutors who marked my assignments provided at the end of each assessment. Thank you CA, I have definitely learned some new things and hope to be able to apply it in the not too distant future.
