It was fantastic to be able to study in my own time, as it meant I was able to work around my children. As well as not having the stress to finish in a short time.

I have had the best experience and enjoyed doing this course through Australian Online Courses. I am a School Support Learning Officer and work at a school. I will benefit from knowledge learnt to assist the students that I work with in the classroom. The site/course content was easy to use and navigate. The operators were very friendly and helpful when I needed to call, and my questions were answered immediately. I will recommend Australian Online Courses to others and hope to do another course with you in the future. Thank you.
