Well structured and easy to follow coursework. My queries were answered promptly and were clearly not stock Q&A responses so I felt I had been given real support.

The test at the end was unexpected as the end of module tests were self marking. As it was a timed test that covered every aspect of the course but in a random way which meant one had to pay attention and read the questions carefully!

I feel I have achieved something and will certainly follow up with another course. New Skills Academy is highly recommended as an online study organisation, as well.

I passed my admin course. It was very clear, so I found it so easy to understand and take in all the information. Thank you

Janet Nantomah

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

I took it up in myself to take this course as I am wanting to get on the personal trainer business. I found this course to be really insightful and beneficial.

As well as providing the information needed for health care professionals in the Fitness industry, it also provides the information you might be interested in to take your career further. Such as qualifications you can take afterwards to specialise in a specific area in the Fitness industry.

If you want an informative course that gives you a little extra, this is perfect for you. If you would like the bare minimum, then this course isn’t for you.

Emma Fulford

I am on the 4th module and so far I have to say I am really enjoying it.
I have already learnt so much that I never knew before about the human body.
I started this course because I am currently getting into health and fitness to make a better life and future for myself and so I know what is right and wrong when I exercise or with what I am putting into my body.
The layout is really easy to understand and follow, the questions at the end of each module is really helpful too as refreshes what you have already read and learnt. Overall, I am pretty addicted to the course and getting through it quick. Definitely worth the money.

Michelle Paddick

Great value course that is very easy to use and full of great content. I learned a lot from it and will now be signing up for other courses.

Well structured and easy to follow coursework. My queries were answered promptly and were clearly not stock Q&A responses so I felt I had been given real support.

The test at the end was unexpected as the end of module tests were self marking. As it was a timed test that covered every aspect of the course but in a random way which meant one had to pay attention and read the questions carefully!

I feel I have achieved something and will certainly follow up with another course. New Skills Academy is highly recommended as an online study organisation, as well.

I passed my admin course. It was very clear, so I found it so easy to understand and take in all the information. Thank you

Janet Nantomah

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

I took it up in myself to take this course as I am wanting to get on the personal trainer business. I found this course to be really insightful and beneficial.

As well as providing the information needed for health care professionals in the Fitness industry, it also provides the information you might be interested in to take your career further. Such as qualifications you can take afterwards to specialise in a specific area in the Fitness industry.

If you want an informative course that gives you a little extra, this is perfect for you. If you would like the bare minimum, then this course isn’t for you.

I am on the 4th module and so far I have to say I am really enjoying it.
I have already learnt so much that I never knew before about the human body.
I started this course because I am currently getting into health and fitness to make a better life and future for myself and so I know what is right and wrong when I exercise or with what I am putting into my body.
The layout is really easy to understand and follow, the questions at the end of each module is really helpful too as refreshes what you have already read and learnt. Overall, I am pretty addicted to the course and getting through it quick. Definitely worth the money.

Michelle Paddick
