  1. Tracy Armstrong

    Hi, I feel the couse was wonderful even though I did take a bit longer due to some personal issues. However I felt maybe if I had one or 2 due dates to work towards on one or two assignments I might have been a bit more motivated, not sure but working towards a deadline sometime can be motivating. Thank you for the wonderful course, I did really enjoy it and oved the layout of work and the assistance and all aspects of the content and support. Alot of was new and interesting and informative, also the information helps me in my current role and also gives me a confidence to grow and apply for better roles/ improve my career. Online course study is good as you able to work and earn. I looked for something that would fit in with my lifestyle as present and not be too demanding and take up all family life. I liked the courses to choose from and that your courses are recognied can you be certified. The career centre side is a big draw too. Thank you to all the lecturer’s for support it was great.

    More teaching videos should be incorporated into this course. This could be done easily. The assignment questions should be proofread (terrible grammar used) and also re-written as some of them are very vague. There should be a chapter on how to maintain and clean grooming equipment as this is a very important aspect in grooming. This would be a great way to incorporate more tutorial videos. I signed up to this course because one of the selling points was that online videos from the tutor would be used throughout the course. I was extremely disappinted to find out there was only one video and this was on how to correctly hold grooming scissors. The course instructor is well known in the grooming industry and this course was recommended by the groomers association, this played a big part in my decision to choose this course. I did learn a lot from this course, however alot of that was because I did self directed research. I found some of the course notes are not very thorough. I guess i expected it to be more indepth. I am glad I completed this course, but overall came away a bit disappointed. My free gift for doing this course was a very cheap sdet of grooming scissors, I was very disappointed in the quality of these. I now see that the gift has changed to the notes from the Grooming table book which is a fantastic resource. I really wish that his book had been my gift as it would be so useful.

    The support and encouragement from every single tutor was amazing, the site is easy to use and understand, assignments were always marked quickly. There is nothing i would change, it has been the best experience and because of that I have gained confidence inmy day to day work in office administration, thank you so much to ‘everyone’ at Career Academy

  4. Yolande Labuschagne

    The Study Material was very clear. Fantastic Tutors that gave me a lot of encouragement and was there when I needed help. I found the study material really interesting and easy to understand.

  5. Susana Gates

    Flexibility

  6. Zoe Shepherd

    Just being able to go at my own pace. And the modules were less time intensive than it anticipated – An option to turn off notifications on past modules so my inbox wouldn’t get so full

  7. Hayley Van Hees

    Easy to do qualifications online when you live away from the cities

  8. Carolyn Cuello

    Course material needs to be reviewed – there were various editorial errors throughout. The payment option was ideal for me!

  9. Sonia Calvert

    limited available Grooming courses and I needed to start with something online which would allow me to progress in my own time I felt like it would have been a vast improvement if the use of video had been considered. There was 1x 5 min video at the start and it would have been useful to have some visual accompaniment through out.
    Secondly I felt that the reading references for each lesson were missing. It would have been useful to have one or two examples of the kinds of books references and journals available which may have backed up the course content. Just missing the practical experience which is unavailable unless one can travel and stay in Auckland for good weeks . Unfortunately as a single parent this is out of my depths. Wouldnt it be great if limited practical sessions could be offered in other places in the country for those unavailable to travel for long durations

  17. Sonia Calvert

    I’m just wondering if there has been a blip in the system. I’ve been waiting a couple of weeks now for one of my assignments to be graded. I submitted it once on Tuesday 19th, then 2 days later checked the status to find it was no longer submitted, so submitted it again on Thursday 21st October. I havent heard anything since, so just wanted to check that it is in fact in the quese to be graded and hasnt somehow failed to notify the graders?

    Quite hard to get into doing it online but good overall. The tutors give good feedback.

  21. Deanna Lawson

    My certificate in dog & pet grooming isn’t going too bad, I decided to go online and use an outside book to help me with a particular part that I’m stuck on but if I need further help I’ll definitely ask the tutors.

  22. Pamela Giles

    Good course, enjoyable, really straight forward

  23. Helen Alty

    Good course, really enjoying it. Tutors are very helpful and make contact really quickly. Found the folder really helpful.

  24. Jane Bebbington

    I’m a bit disappointed that there’s not a more practical focus, but I’m only about halfway through so I’m hopeful for more practical aspects later on.

  25. Ailish Treviss

    I wanted to do a Dog Grooming Course, and this course with The Career Academy was the only one I could find that provided a great course for a reasonable price.

  26. Fiona Rountree

    Karen has been awesome

  27. Sarah Horton

    Career Academy was the cheapest option. Need more about dog grooming, equipment needed etc

  28. Jenny Sharpe

    I decided to enrol with The Career Academy because I needed a course I could do from home. A bit more on grooming dogs would have been invaluable as that’s the field I wish to take but in saying that I really enjoyed learning about the other aspects of this course and looking forward to doing more studies through you, I would like more info packs on dog grooming courses please. Still excellent overall.
