What are the advantages of distance learning?
There are many advantages to Distance Learning, but the main advantages have to be cost and flexibility. With Distance Learning there is no need to attend a classroom environment, so there is no waste of time or other resources in transport, commuting to specific location for each class. You can learn at your own pace, so you can get through your course as quickly or slowly as you please, and of course the costs can also be a lot less!
How do the courses work?
It's really very simple. We supply you with the appropriate study materials to head for a particular certificate or exam(s). You receive your course materials in one go so you know exactly what you are receiving for your money. You then receive support through a personal tutor to help you get through the course materials.
When can I start?
Will I gain a Certificate / Qualification?
Almost all of our courses lead to nationally accredited certificate awards, qualifications or industry recognised certification. The accreditation information is detailed on each course page. Some courses will include the final Certification/Qualification within their course fees, while others will require external examinations or tests.
Will I have a tutor?
How long do the courses take to complete?
Course lengths will vary from student to student, but you will find a reasonable estimate of course durations set in applied learning hours on each course page of our website.
Can I pay in Instalments?
Will I get a job on completion of the course?
We cannot guarantee whether students will be able to work in a specific job role after completing a course. Each Job is different and will ask for specific skills and qualifications. All we can guarantee is that on successfully completing the course you can gain the detailed certificate or qualification. We always advise that students look at available jobs in their area to see what skills/qualifications are being asked for if this is their end goal.
What if I am not entirely happy with my course materials?
If you change your mind or you are not happy with your course materials then simply let us know! All courses have a 14 day return policy so if you are not satisfied with your course then you can swap it for another or return it for a no questions asked course refund.
Can I do the courses overseas?
