I have really enjoyed doing the receptionist course online and I recommend anyone that wants to improve in whatever qualifications they wish to progress in to do it on New Skills Academy. It is very helpful and I have learnt a lot - My family members couldn’t believe how much I have progressed and they have actually said that they will probably do the courses online themselves. I will definitely finish the courses that I still have on here, and maybe do more courses in the future as I have learned a lot and I am willing to learn more as the resources you have on here are brilliant.

Kaoutar Benabdejlil

This was a brilliant course that was easy to understand and fits into your lifestyle by being able to access at times that suits you. I needed a refresher course and this ticked all the boxes. One area which I was not aware of was the Employment Allowance Incentive but I now understand this fully. It is also good information on record keeping along with Data Protection. I highly recommend this course and it doesn't have to be expensive to do. The fact that you get a Diploma Certificate at the end only enhances your CV and gives you a sense of satisfaction.

Donna Raynes

A good course that covers all the basics and will leave you confident and equipped to deal with any emergencies as they arise, from basic equipment needed, to how to do CPR on your dog or cat, to administering medicines and dealing with burns, breaks and drownings. It gave me a lot of tips and pointers to explore the issues further as well as first aid equipment to buy. Providing you read through all of the modules, you'll be able to pass the course quite easily. Good value for money for what I paid for this course. Well worth the few hours needed.

Adam Waldron

Thoroughly enjoying this course. It's great that I can study at my own pace with no time restrictions so I can do a little or a lot each time depending on what time I have available.

So much useful information I will be able to apply not only to landscaping specifically but also to business in general & day to day gardening both personally & professionally.

The chapters are easy to follow, the estimated time helps schedule your time appropriately & the questions at the end of each chapter make sure you have understood correctly.

Highly recommended!

Lauren Spice

I found the CRM course to be very informative & user friendly. The knowledge I've gained, after completing five detailed modules & a short exam, has given me a much better understanding of CRM and this personal development will help me to implement new processes in the workplace. The entire course is available on demand, before and after completion, meaning you can go over every module until you're confident enough to take the exam. For anybody looking to gain information on what Customer Relationship Management is, and how it can improve your business, I cannot not recommend this course highly enough.

Joe Shawyer

The course was really easy to access, very clear and easy to read.

Packed with information about so many different topics and situations you may be in as a PA. Helped lots of Microsoft too which I didn’t know about. Very glad I did this course as I have learnt a lot of new things that I didn’t even know you could do online.

I will be looking in to starting new courses with New Skills Academy as it really was so well presented, great support if you needed it and can access it anywhere and continue at any time, thank you.

Level 1 Java Certificate Course

Physiological studies have shown that learning to speak two or more languages can greatly benefit the cognitive process. Not only can communication expand exponentially when learning a new language, but it greatly improves the brain’s functionality.

Interestingly, learning different computer languages can also provide amazing benefits.

These benefits are not just mental, but are also a useful application in everyday life. Smartphones, parking key fobs, security badges and using a device to unlock a car door are some of the daily items that have been programmed to perform in a certain way.

Understanding how to program can be an amazing asset and while there are many different languages, none is quite as easy to learn as Java. Java was created with efficiency and uniformity in mind.

The goal was to create a program with greater capabilities than C/C++ but with more simplicity. In this Java Programming for Beginners course, you will learn the basics of programming using the Java language as well as many of the benefits that will pave the way for efficient programming.

I have really enjoyed doing the receptionist course online and I recommend anyone that wants to improve in whatever qualifications they wish to progress in to do it on New Skills Academy. It is very helpful and I have learnt a lot - My family members couldn’t believe how much I have progressed and they have actually said that they will probably do the courses online themselves. I will definitely finish the courses that I still have on here, and maybe do more courses in the future as I have learned a lot and I am willing to learn more as the resources you have on here are brilliant.

Kaoutar Benabdejlil

This was a brilliant course that was easy to understand and fits into your lifestyle by being able to access at times that suits you. I needed a refresher course and this ticked all the boxes. One area which I was not aware of was the Employment Allowance Incentive but I now understand this fully. It is also good information on record keeping along with Data Protection. I highly recommend this course and it doesn't have to be expensive to do. The fact that you get a Diploma Certificate at the end only enhances your CV and gives you a sense of satisfaction.

Donna Raynes

A good course that covers all the basics and will leave you confident and equipped to deal with any emergencies as they arise, from basic equipment needed, to how to do CPR on your dog or cat, to administering medicines and dealing with burns, breaks and drownings. It gave me a lot of tips and pointers to explore the issues further as well as first aid equipment to buy. Providing you read through all of the modules, you'll be able to pass the course quite easily. Good value for money for what I paid for this course. Well worth the few hours needed.

Adam Waldron

Thoroughly enjoying this course. It's great that I can study at my own pace with no time restrictions so I can do a little or a lot each time depending on what time I have available.

So much useful information I will be able to apply not only to landscaping specifically but also to business in general & day to day gardening both personally & professionally.

The chapters are easy to follow, the estimated time helps schedule your time appropriately & the questions at the end of each chapter make sure you have understood correctly.

Highly recommended!

Lauren Spice

I found the CRM course to be very informative & user friendly. The knowledge I've gained, after completing five detailed modules & a short exam, has given me a much better understanding of CRM and this personal development will help me to implement new processes in the workplace. The entire course is available on demand, before and after completion, meaning you can go over every module until you're confident enough to take the exam. For anybody looking to gain information on what Customer Relationship Management is, and how it can improve your business, I cannot not recommend this course highly enough.

Joe Shawyer

The course was really easy to access, very clear and easy to read.

Packed with information about so many different topics and situations you may be in as a PA. Helped lots of Microsoft too which I didn’t know about. Very glad I did this course as I have learnt a lot of new things that I didn’t even know you could do online.

I will be looking in to starting new courses with New Skills Academy as it really was so well presented, great support if you needed it and can access it anywhere and continue at any time, thank you.
