    That I was able to study in my own time and test my abilities but also had help on the phone or via email if i needed it! Nothing really. I found the diploma quite easy actually. Im not sure if its meant to be easy or not though!

What students say about our Certificate in Business Administration

★★★★★ “I found this course absolutely fantastic to get an understanding of what skills and knowledge was needed for admin type jobs from the basics of microsoft office all the way through to payroll and understanding how to use Xero. The assessments and learning modules were all set out in an easy to read and understand way and the support from the tutors was amazing. Very quick to answer any questions and help with parts I didn’t understand. The course fit in perfectly around my two young children and I am looking forward to studying even more through the Career Academy!”  – Melissa Edge
