Course Reviews

Don't just take our word for it

  • “ I look forward to further challenges in the future where I can draw from my knowledge gained in attaining my qualification through the Australian College of Commerce and Management. Thank you for all your support throughout.
    Cody B
  • “ All information provided in the textbooks were very helpful and easily identified what each area of the textbook was trying to convey. The assessment tasks seemed to be very straightforward and relate back to everything we have learnt so far. It also relates to what I am exposed to in the workplace on a day to day basis. ” Saraya F
  • “ Excellent course materials - I didn't feel too stressed as I felt it was totally within my ability to complete the tasks. I can appreciate that its hard to find a balance of too informal vs. too academic for the average learner - especially with Law. I thought the balance was spot on and so informative. I was just a sponge soaking up all the little bits of facts. Speaking of which, I love that there are real examples that I know are actually true - not just imagined. Well Done!! ” John J
  • “ Before commencing this course I never thought that I would be where I am today as I came from the beauty industry and never saw something like this in my future.. Now I have this qualification I’ve gone from working in a salon to training staff in legal and I love it.

    Thank you for everything you have done, from providing support on the daily to giving me the confidence I needed in my role.
