    Maybe add more stuff on the development and psychology aspect of the study rather than the nutrition. I know nutrition is important but knowing how and why children are developin gthe way they do is also beneficial. i choose to study with The Career Academy because I heard good things about the course and it was a good way for me to do the course as well as work. I learnt alot from this course and will be applied to my future work with the kids. Can I get my certificate emailed to me as I will not be able to attend the Ceremony.

    I have studied in the NZ career academy and the Australian career academy and so far the NZ one has proven to be better due to more reliability to get assessments back and quickly but other than that no real complaints.
