This course was great! Was so interesting and enlightening to what a day in the wedding planning business will be like! It was so easy to do and easy to fit it around my work schedule. Taught me so much and has really given me an amazing feeling about starting my new career! I would highly recommend! Better than paying thousands to go back to college when you can do this in your own time at your own pace and still learn just as much, if not more! When completing this course, I felt proud and excited for my next steps so thank you so much New Skills Academy for helping me accomplish my big leap into starting a new adventure and finally doing something I love!

The course is well written and broken down into easy sections, there is a test at the end of each module. This course is good if you're looking at a new career or even just want a better understanding of exercise, I would recommend the course for for either.

The web site is easy to navigate, I would recommend this for some one wanting to start a career in the fitness industry.

I undertook the Data Protection Certificate course in May 2017. I found the course to have a very in depth amount of detail on Data Protection and the law and legislation around it. It also went into detail on the new Data Protection Act coming in 2018.

I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a course with value for money and also to bulk up their knowledge and perhaps perusing a career in IT or security. The course is audited and comes with a certificate on completion which you are able to print yourself or have one sent out to you for a small fee.

Mason Malin

I started this course not too long ago but I am already learning so much! The course content is extremely interesting and informative!

I get excited thinking about what is going to be in each module! I would recommend this course to everybody with a passion for makeup without hesitation! I love the convenience of being able to do this course wherever I am.

Also, the fact that there is no time limit for the course is a plus, this means I can take my time and take notes as I go, without feeling rushed to complete each module fast.

Cian Conroy

Great teaching layout for each module. Clear and easy to follow studying method.

I found this way of learning perfect for me, as I could study at my own pace in the comfort of my home. Being dyslexic, I enjoyed studying the modules in my own time. Support always on hand if needed, plus a bonus of being able to print off each module to add my own notes.

Easy to use layout of the course, allowed myself to swiftly go through each module, with a small test at the end of each module before moving on, making sure the knowledge had sunk in! With a final Test at the end to complete the Diploma. I would recommend this site to others, looking to add to their skill set.

My son has Aspergers Syndrome, so when this course Autism Awareness Diploma came up with 90% off just after Christmas, I thought I would like to do it. There was no pressure on myself and progressed at my own pace, the course is very informative with lots of hints and tips. The process of going through the Modules and assignments was also very easy to do. The cost of the course was expensive if I hadn't had 90% off. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending New Skills Academy courses to other people for their informative and ease of usage. I really enjoyed it.
