Anyone who has an interest in learning more about this subject matter is encouraged to take the course. There are no entry requirements to take the course.

The course is broken down into 17 individual modules. Each module takes between 20 and 90 minutes on average to study. Although you are free to spend as much or as little time as you feel necessary on each module, simply log in and out of the course at your convenience.

You can study the course any time you like. Simply log in and out of the web based course as often as you require. The course is compatible with all computers, tablet devices and smart phones so you can even study while on the move!

Once you have completed all 17 modules there is a multiple choice test. The questions will be on a range of topics found within the 17 modules. The test, like the course, is online and can be taken a time and location of your choosing.

The pass mark for the test is 70%.

If you don’t pass the test first time you will get further opportunities to take the test again after extra study. There are no limits to the number of times you can take the test. All test retakes are included within the price of the course.

Once you have completed your test you can log in to your account and download/print your certificate any time you need it. If you would prefer us to post you a certificate to a UK address, there will be an admin charge of £10 (certificates sent internationally may cost more).

You can either use your Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Solo cards or PayPal account to pay for the online course. Our site uses the latest SSL encryption to ensure your safety. All payments are handled securely by PayPal.

You can begin the course immediately after your payment has been received. You will create your login details during the checkout process. We will also send you an email confirming your login details.

We estimate that the course will take about 12 hours to complete in total, plus an additional 30 minutes for the end of course test.

Once you have been awarded your certificate it is valid for life. The certificate does not expire or need renewing.

This short course was actually very informative and interesting, and learned far more than what you can read on the internet. The modules are an excellent way to learn, as you can complete each module in your own time.

I feel as though I’ve learned a lot from this course and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in starting a career in alternative medicine or as a starter in your own business. This certificate can lead onto other courses in this field.

The customer service was excellent, quick and easy to apply online and even better, you can pay by PayPal.

I am so happy I decided to take this course I would not be where I am now without it.
Nail diploma school has taught me so much I have a much better understanding of how to start my business and run is successfully.
Even employers are begging to have me and my clients are swarming after I learnt how to advertise better. A big thanks.

Gina Amron

This online course really helps me in pursuing my career and gain knowledge about special education. It's very easy to use and very user friendly! Two thumbs up!

Christine Kim Grace De Guzman

After being in recruitment for three years, this was an amazing course to remind me all the things that I may have let slip it also encouraged me to sharpen up my recruitment practices and I feel rejuvenated in my approach to recruitment with both clients and candidates.
Through the help of this course I feel that I can actively, proactively and effectively target both clients and candidates to achieve my target orientated goals.

Shaun Paskin

I found the course very useful and it was fairly easy to navigate around the website. The course material was good and easy to understand and I am glad that I passed my test.

I learned so much as I am currently doing my CEMAP Mortgage Adviser qualification and thought that doing an Estate Agency Diploma would help me know the basics about selling and letting properties.

I feel so much more confident after doing the course and encourage anyone who wants a career in Estate Agency to do this course as you will learn so much from it.
Thank you New Skills Academy!
