    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 15 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 15 modules there is a multiple choice test. The questions will be on a range of topics found within the 15 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%.

    We estimate that the course will take about 11 hours to complete in total, plus an additional 30 minutes for the end of course test.

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

    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 undertook the Data Protection Certificate course in May 2017. I found the course to have a very in depth amount of detail on Data Protection and the law and legislation around it. It also went into detail on the new Data Protection Act coming in 2018.

    I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a course with value for money and also to bulk up their knowledge and perhaps perusing a career in IT or security. The course is audited and comes with a certificate on completion which you are able to print yourself or have one sent out to you for a small fee.

    I have just completed the Level 3 Customer Services Diploma course. This course covers all aspects of what exactly customer service is and how somebody could be an excellent costumer representative.

    Although I have 10 years work experience, I should admit that I found it quite interesting. This course is comprehensive and any professional can add some useful knowledge. It offers some essential tips for all who want to succeed in the customer service role.

    The modules are well organised and understandable, so anybody can easily become familiar with the terminology. I do propose to anybody to attend this course.

    Georgia Sideri

    I loved every aspect of this online digital marketing course. The modules were well constructed and offered up a wealth of information on the subject.

    I found myself learning many new things, such as the best practices for implementing an online marketing campaign, whether through social media, email marketing, or otherwise.

    Passing this course has gone a long way to helping me with my online business routine.

    I sought to improve my efforts at marketing my work and now, thanks to New Skills Academy, I’ve been able to. Thank you so much to New Skills Academy for this amazing course.
