Additionally, the course explains the different types of depression, how depression affects one’s life, and what events or actions might trigger depression.

Really interesting and a good starting point for increasing my understanding and knowledge. Easy to access at any time, modules were nice and short so good bursts of information and easy to understand. I feel that I have gained knowledge that I can take forward within my current profession and apply my knowledge to get the best possible results for my organisation in all forms of media. Would recommend this course for anyone looking to start off in this career and looking to gain solid background information to take you forward. You have the flexibility to learn in your own time and take it at your own pace which is great when you are already working full time.

I am so far really enjoying the course. Information is really well presented and tests a great recap to information covered. I also think the Notes tool is a good addition, however, the saving seems a little unstable so I have lost notes on a couple of the modules.

I figured that I needed to save prior to taking the test, but had selected a picture and as there was no close option, I clicked back and lost the notes I had taken. Apart from that, I am really enjoying the format and am finding the information easy to retain.

Amanda Rolfe

I am over the moon with this course and just had to leave a positive review.

The content is very relevant and completely up to date, it gives a fantastic overview of Advertising which is simple and easy to read and digest. It has helped me understand aspects in my current job role more than I needed. I am confident it would help anyone take the plunge into the marketing world!! The little tests along the way are also really handy, and tests what you have understood.

I would highly recommend this course. I am really looking forward to completing the remainder of this course, and browse what other courses are available. Thank you!!

Danielle Woodall

I have started this course only 1 day ago and I cant stop studying. The information is very informative. I like the way the course gives you time to practice to get the skill right before you move onto the next subject.

I am looking forward to completing the course so I can start doing the nails properly. Highly Recommended.

Mia James

Have purchased an online training course for an excellent price and I am very happy with the modules, presentation and interesting details contained in the course.

Andrea Berta

I am over the moon with my experience in completing my first online course with New Skills Academy. I found the whole process quick and efficient and the site very easy to navigate. I found it helpful to complete short tests at the end of each module as I feel this help to review the information I have read and confirm that I understood it and could retain the information as well. I found the course to be very well written and the information provided to be interesting and relevant to the course and the final test to be efficient in recapping everything I had learnt throughout the course. I completely the course quite quickly as was able to study using my iPhone as the course was iOS compatible which I found to be the best way of accessing the course, information and tests. I'm thrilled that I passed my first course and can't wait to get started on the next one. Thank you for such a positive and rewarding experience.
