    More detail could be given in the course book relating to the assessments and recommended readings would have been useful to give more insight. Although the text book gave insight to the relevant legislation it did not correlate directly with the assessments. It was also not the most up to date version.
    On researching this the book is available in print for less than the charge through the academy. The course notes also need formatting to suit the printed copies.
    The course in general provided revision and overall knowledge for NZ.
    Certificate in personnel management and hr
    Moodle was easy to use and easy to complete and submit coursework. The course book and notes were laid out easily.

    The best part of studying with the Career Academy was the amazing tutors. Blessings and Tracey are absolutely remarkable there help and guidance is amazing and are purely a massive asset to your team. The support and encouragement they give is amazing. I take my hat off to them. I loved learning online my busy crazy lifestyle. Learning two accounting software programs at the end of the Certificate Business management course, I believe is a massive ask to anyone. You just get your hear around one and then straight back to another.

    I enjoyed the flexibility of studying in my own time online. The course was interesting and certainly increased my knowledge and understanding of running a small business. When I sent an email question the response time was very prompt which I appreciated. Sometimes the wording explaining things or what was expected in assignments wasn’t always clear. Even down to little details such as on the finial assignment there is an Excel Cash Conversion cycle tracking sheet and I had to input the figures a column down as the formula was set up with the incorrect cell number. (I know it is only a tiny detail but it took me a few minutes to try and figure out why things weren’t adding up!)

    I chose the Career Academy because it is a great fit for my lifestyle as a full-time mother and it is also affordable.
    I chose to study the course content within my own pace and own hours, its great!
    The tutors are also very helpful within help emails and assessment feedbacks, they also respond within a reasonable time and make sure you are getting the help you are seeking within your course material etc..

    I have only had the tutors call me a few times but they were pretty helpful. The best part of the course is the step-by-step instructions, particularly in the videos, because the visual explanation makes the content easier to understand. I am happy with the resources I have received from the Career Academy.

    Some of the course information needs to be looked over as there are spelling mistakes, and sometimes it can be hard to understand as there are a few times that only half a word is in there. Otherwise very good course.

    Pretty good course, the tutors have been constructive in their feedback which I find helpful. I’m taking this alongside another course and there is some overlap between them, which is fine, but it would be helpful to be able to combine them into one individual course in terms of course completion and progress.

    The course is going well , I am learning a lot. The content is good as well, it provides a broad overview of the information. I am new to the subject so I would like to see the course go more in depth sometimes, as the assessments can be challenging.

    I needed a correspondence course which could be completed in my own time but was not too long. It covered all the topics I needed to manage and run a small hospo business in the future. Also it offered an introduction to Xero accounting software which I’d like to use in my business.
