Our Courses

First and foremost our courses are 100% online courses BUT they are still very practical!  You will learn many practical skills, do some research, field trips and much more.  

All learning is best done by doing, so our online courses are designed to give you the foundation knowledge you need and to get you out there and doing whatever it is that you love.  

This sets our students up for success. 

    • 100% Online
    • Practical 
    • Certificate issued on completion
    • 1-on-1 tutor support
    • Flexible payment options
    • Self paced study

Getting where you want to go with your studies and/or career, involves much more than just reading or watching a video.  Knowing how to learn, how to research and find out new information, how to judge if the source of information is any good and how to find out what is happening in your industry and creating a network are vitally important!  Our courses will help you do all that.

We have mini self assessment tests so that you can be the judge of how well you understand the material and then a set task where you will undertake some form of practical exercise.  But best of all is the one-on-one expert tutor feedback you get with each task you submit.  

Online study can by difficult but our tutors are there to help you every step of the way.
