  1. Mason Reade Fitzgerald

    Very supportive and encouraging feedback from all tutors. I have already recommended The Career Academy to multiple friends and colleagues, two of which are currently in the process of applying. Thank you for a great start and I am looking forward to getting further through my studies.

  3. Michael Shane Bothma

    Some clarity around discounts allowed and received. Even the tutors had me a bit confused. Easy online and can go at your own pace with help when needed. A full three year degree course would be something worthwhile to look at. N/A
