Anyone who has an interest in learning more about this subject matter is encouraged to take the course. There are no entry requirements to take the course.

The course is broken down into 13 individual modules. Each module takes between 20 and 90 minutes on average to study. Although you are free to spend as much or as little time as you feel necessary on each module, simply log in and out of the course at your convenience.

You can study the course any time you like. Simply log in and out of the web based course as often as you require. The course is compatible with all computers, tablet devices and smart phones so you can even study while on the move!

Once you have completed all 13 modules there is a multiple choice test. The questions will be on a range of topics found within the 13 modules. The test, like the course, is online and can be taken a time and location of your choosing.

The pass mark for the test is 70%.

If you don’t pass the test first time you will get further opportunities to take the test again after extra study. There are no limits to the number of times you can take the test. All test retakes are included within the price of the course.

Once you have been awarded your certificate it is valid for life. The certificate does not expire or need renewing.

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

Great course worth the money very detailed yet easy to understand and all official with a certificate at the end it's very interesting and fun

Cherish King

I started the HR Management Diploma Level 2 – CPD Certified & IVCAS Accredited in November 2016, and I can say hand on heart it has been the best experience of my life.

Everything I have learnt here, every lesson, has been practical and useful, with real skills that are relevant to the real world, instead of hours of boring theory and history of the subject. Straight away we were learning real web design.

This course has been incredibly helpful and I have learnt far more than I could have ever imagined and I have only completed 4 of the 20 modules.

Chloe Gibson

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.

Jessie Dillon

loved this course. I feel I could start my own business if I choose to but I prefer working for a company that is already established.

I found this course easy to understand and follow and found it highly useful that I could pick it up and leave it as I wished so I could fit it in around my life.
I am currently scouring the internet and papers and phoning companies in order to find myself employment with in this field of work.

I cannot thank this company enough for enabling me to fulfil a life dream of working with animals.

Lorraine Redknapp

A very helpful and well-structured introduction to Complete Animal Care. I haven't completed all the course content and modules, but I am finding it is clear and easy to understand and the topics are presented with enough detail to enable a good understanding, but not overwhelm you!
Very straightforward process to access content, good value for money and there is an extensive range of free downloadable resources relating to the course.
While learning at my own pace, the course is giving me all the information I need to start my dream career. I have already and will continue to highly recommend New Skills Academy!
