    The airline assignment was a great idea, however I found it hard to know how to condense such a huge amount of information in to a briefing paper. Maybe there course be some simplification or clarification of the essential content. Affordability, online access, interesting courses well described, potential to prepare me for accounts emoloyment. I really enjoyed the Management accounting course besides the stress of the non-financial indicators assignment which took me months to complete while working. Very interesting course.

    I am finding the course information amazing and when doing it easy to follow but am getting frustrated at the navigation of the site where you seem to have to go out to find something you want to relook at. Feel I am spending more time working out where I am at rather than the course. Unfortunately I haven’t had much to do with the tutors yet but am sure this will be coming up soon. Overall, I am very happy.

    The content is enough to give me enough understanding of maintaining a book, gst and depreciation. I can say that this course helped me with my work as an assistant accountant and finance. More case samples are needed if the learners decided to go further in the Chartered Accountancy course. The tutors are great, I forgot their names but they are accommodating, helpful and are knowledgeable of the questioned asked.

    At the moment I am working on the assessment for Management Accounting.. I am on question 3 and am feeling totally frustrated. I don’t know if it is the way the question is asked or if the information in the learning material is inadequate. I could write pages about the subject yet I am struggling to understand what is required.
    I have found throughout the course that the practice examples given in the learning material are totally different from the assessment questions.
    I am not a stupid person and if you look at my results I have mostly passed assessments first time once I know what is expected.
    The tutors are helpful. Unfortunately a wrong assessment has to be sent in first to be able to get help in understanding the question.

    I haven’t really had a lot to do with the Tutors (so far – but as I get more into the course I guess I will probably be corresponding with them a lot more)

    Course is great, I have not got to the point yet here I use the tutors. I need a lot more time to complete the course, I would like there to be more flexibility with how long we have to complete the courses, if you can see that we are struggling to get them done in the time frame you have given but are working away at them still. I would like that to be taken into account and have more time to complete the course. Otherwise I think it is an amazing way of learning. Thank you.

    I came across Career Academy when I was hoping to making some change with my career. I am Samuel Chen, Massey University 2015 Bachelor of Accountancy graduates. I was offered a position with a local company doing accounting clerk after graduation. After few months working, I realise, my current skill set need to be upgraded and I would like to become an accounting professional. After searching online, I found Career Academy Diploma in Accounting. They offered many accounting related online course. I was pleased that the course advisor tailor the course for me to meet my career goals. To work full time makes the self-learning even harder. Therefore I couldn’t enjoy more from the flexible of study time. More importantly, as a new graduates, I was under the financial pressure, the fee structure makes the course affordable.
    Along with the study, Career Academy offered career and CV workshops to help me keep making progress. After reviewing my experience, Career Academy invited me to sit with CA ANZ. This is the turning point with my career. Talking with CA ANZ member, I had an insightful idea of why and how to become a member. They helped me to set up my pathway to achieve the accounting technician designation which is a stepping stone towards Chartered Accountant. The idea was to break down the long term career goal into different stages which is more feasible.
    I have to say, after all these I really appreciated the help from Career Academy, from the course consultant to the director. They have been putting so much effort in helping me to pursue a better career. In the end, it turns out that I was offered with two different positions from a medium size accounting firm and IRD. Now I am the tax administrator accountant with the accounting firm and continue study toward the Chartered Accountant designation.

    Nothing could be improved. I really enjoyed it was like a refreasher and more under standing. I can study at home in my own time and with 2 kids it easier than juggling them.

    I’m Leanne and a current student of The Career Academy. I’ve worked off and on in accounts most of my adult life.

    In difference to the commonly held view that it is not a terribly exciting job, I have enjoyed doing the books for an advertising agency while living in Zimbabwe, worked in London CBD for the UKs largest multi national company and I’m about to start my own book keeping business in Taupo. But one thing has always bugged me and that is I have never been formally qualified. I could get away with this 25 years ago when everything was done with a calculator and a pencil but with the regulation changes in the accounting industry and a social change to be better up skilled I could not afford to be left behind.

    I discovered The Career Academy online and honestly couldn’t have been more excited. They offered me the exact qualification, I was after at a super competitive price and offered learning at my own pace. Very soon I had achieved my ambition and completed my Certificate in Bookkeeping. More than just gaining a certificate, the satisfaction did wonders for my self-confidence. Now I really do feel I am part of an industry club. I’m being recognized by my peers as an equal. The confidence I gained then encouraged me to take the next step and I quickly enrolled in the Diploma of Accounting also with The Career Academy. The Leanne of 12 months ago is a totally different person to the Leanne of today.

    Had previously Completed Admin Accounts course so this was a natural progression. This is a step up from the Admin Accounts course. The Accruals and Prepayments final assessment was quite a challenge. But is was good it that it made me look at better ways of learning and understanding the information presented. This will help me as the content gets more involved and difficult.

Also the partnership with CAANZ. Good overall but please inform students by email if the course is going to be upgraded, updated or improved.

    Original link was from the Bookkeepers Association and it you the courses I particularly wanted (Xero being the clincher). I was able to complete this more quickly than imagined as the video instruction is so clear there was no downtime trying to figure out what to do. You had the exact courses I wanted to do and friendly and helpful admin staff.

    I did lots of research online and needed a NZ orientated distance learing course that I could study from the UK. I did look at some of the NZ University courses offered online, but most were restrcited to NZ students, had some classes in NZ or were prohibitively expensive. I couldn’t commit to spending so much money before our visa application is accepted, whereas your course offered better value and I could see it would benefit me whether or not we are successful in obtaining a visa. I thouroughly enjoyed the course and thank all the tutors for their quick responses. I thought the entire diploma was well structured and I learned a lot even though I have prior some accounting experience.

    Just completed the Diploma in Accounting. My tutor (Kirsten) always respected me whenever I could not understand a topic or had difficulties logging into a particular assessment questionnaire that I was required to answer. She also worked after hours as well, and would phone after hours to see if I was all right when she needed to be home with her family. This is how dedicated the tutors are! Excellent.
