Course Reviews

Don't just take our word for it

  • “ I completed a Certificate III and IV in Financial Services – General Insurance through the College by correspondence. At first, I thought the entire process would be a little daunting without any face to face contact with a teacher. However, after the first week it was clear to me that there would be an incredible amount of support and advice given where it was needed. I could never have completed the courses if it weren’t for your staff. I found them to be professional, courteous and incredibly knowledgeable. I’d like to extend a huge thank you to all the staff who assisted me throughout the process, as you made the experience an easy one. ” Amey M
