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

An enjoyable and informative course, with clear, digestible amounts of information. The worksheets help with understanding and remembering everything, and the whole course is well presented and easy to follow.

Being an online course it allowed me to work at my own pace, and with simple instructions to navigate through the modules, back tracking and repeating ones if I felt I needed too. I was also able to download and print off documents of information for my own files, so if I need to refer back to them I can.

I’d rate it as 10/10, and am looking at the next Level already!

Natasha Davy

Excellent course, easy to follow, excellent tutorial videos that set examples out very simply and are easy to pause or fast forward meaning you can go through this course at totally your own speed.

The work sheets are very good as the examples from the video are all replicated clearly and you can skip back and forth between the worksheet and the video if you don’t remember something completely the first time. When you are confident with the subject, you move yourself on to the next one

I love that I can do this completely in my own time and am sure that at the end of the course I will be confident in my own ability to use Excel.

Caroline Powell

Very informative and interesting to read. Having it broken down into very manageable sections makes it easy to absorb your new found knowledge.

Kathleen Walker

When I first started, I was quite anxious, but after seeing the course layout, it was very simple, effective and most important, engaging.

I especially liked the fact you don't become overwhelmed by the courses quantity of modules, and in the end you have to answer a certain amount of questions within a certain time limit. Every module's layout is very clean, fresh and comprehensive when it comes to its explanation.

If there was any part of the course I was unsure of, I would seek help from the advisors via the online chat and I could say they have been very friendly and helpful.

I'm glad I have taken this course through New Skills ACADEMY and I intend to undertake other courses by them.
