Nicky Corbett

This course is so easy. I was a little nervous before I started it but even after the first module I was at ease.

The video's are clear and the course is easy to understand.

Everything I need to learn is here, from the basics like handling to bathing to full grooming. you can save the work on to your pc or laptop as you go along so you can go back over it later on. at the end of each module you even get time to practise what you have learnt.

I'm so glad I found this company and will highly recommend.

Kirsty Wilson

I was already quite proficient in many areas that this course covers as I have worked similar jobs before but felt I could benefit from a qualification. This is a very in depth course that covers all areas of being a personal assistant, even ones that I wouldn’t have ever considered needing to learn.

The in-depth learning has built my confidence to put myself out there and try to get back into this career path. I particularly found the section on faxing to be very useful as it’s something that is done in most offices that I’ve found it difficult to come to grips with in the past.

I am already eyeing up more courses on the site and will be sure to give them a try soon.

Maria Casey

I ordered the wedding planner course as I am off work and wanted to make use of my time. This course is extremely well set out and easy to follow. The course is broken down into easy to manage modules covering absolutely everything you need to know about being a wedding planner. You can complete these modules at your own pace and you get the chance to review the modules you have completed at any time you wish. The modules take you through the step by step process of planning a wedding including all the pit falls. I am enjoying this course and would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of going into this area of work. The course gives you some very handy tips on things that you may well not have thought about. So what are you waiting for, sign up for an excellent course at a more than reasonable price.

A super user-friendly website, with very pertinent course content. Truly enjoyed the study material and the pace at which I could study was really great. I was delighted to receive my Diploma.

I had some technical problems along the way and contacted your student support team a couple of times and found them to be most helpful and the response time/turnaround was so quick.

I have also signed up to do the Events Planning Diploma and will definitely be studying further through your Academy. Once again a huge thank you – your support team are really helpful, friendly and efficient!!

Tanya Olsen

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.

This course was very informative and i loved that it could be done at my own pace and not have deadlines to reach.

Even my dog loved the benefits and being my practice dummy!

Nicky Corbett

This course is so easy. I was a little nervous before I started it but even after the first module I was at ease.

The video's are clear and the course is easy to understand.

Everything I need to learn is here, from the basics like handling to bathing to full grooming. you can save the work on to your pc or laptop as you go along so you can go back over it later on. at the end of each module you even get time to practise what you have learnt.

I'm so glad I found this company and will highly recommend.

Kirsty Wilson

I was already quite proficient in many areas that this course covers as I have worked similar jobs before but felt I could benefit from a qualification. This is a very in depth course that covers all areas of being a personal assistant, even ones that I wouldn’t have ever considered needing to learn.

The in-depth learning has built my confidence to put myself out there and try to get back into this career path. I particularly found the section on faxing to be very useful as it’s something that is done in most offices that I’ve found it difficult to come to grips with in the past.

I am already eyeing up more courses on the site and will be sure to give them a try soon.

Maria Casey

I ordered the wedding planner course as I am off work and wanted to make use of my time. This course is extremely well set out and easy to follow. The course is broken down into easy to manage modules covering absolutely everything you need to know about being a wedding planner. You can complete these modules at your own pace and you get the chance to review the modules you have completed at any time you wish. The modules take you through the step by step process of planning a wedding including all the pit falls. I am enjoying this course and would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of going into this area of work. The course gives you some very handy tips on things that you may well not have thought about. So what are you waiting for, sign up for an excellent course at a more than reasonable price.

Joanne Wigmore

A super user-friendly website, with very pertinent course content. Truly enjoyed the study material and the pace at which I could study was really great. I was delighted to receive my Diploma.

I had some technical problems along the way and contacted your student support team a couple of times and found them to be most helpful and the response time/turnaround was so quick.

I have also signed up to do the Events Planning Diploma and will definitely be studying further through your Academy. Once again a huge thank you – your support team are really helpful, friendly and efficient!!

Tanya Olsen

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.
