What Our Students Say

I found this course absolutely fantastic to get an understanding of what skills and knowledge was needed for admin type jobs from the basics of Microsoft Office all the way through to payroll and understanding how to use Xero. The assessments and learning modules were all set out in an easy to read and understand way and the support from the tutors was amazing. Very quick to answer any questions and help with parts I didn’t understand.

The course fit in perfectly around my two young children and it was straightforward and easy to understand. It fits in to my routine at home with the kids, it’s given me an opportunity to do studies at my own pace and in my own time. Tutors were very helpful, I’ve only asked for help once, I immediately got a response back.

The Career Academy is the best place to do an online course. It’s very secure, great tutors, and assessed accurately according to NZ standards. Thank you very much! I am very happy that I did my course here in The Career Academy… The tutors are very supportive. I highly recommend The Career Academy.

I love the ease of being able to study for qualifications while I work full time. And the easy payment options work well for me. I would also like to say that even before I completed the certificate course I have applied for an administration job and I am currently going through an interview process.
