  1. Magdi Grobler

    Fits in with my work schedule. This course needs a serious look at. I would say I had to google 90% of this to get answers because they were not in the course material. I was lucky enough to have help from nurses, doctors and radiographers (who all had WTF moments with what we were expected to answer and the lack of information provided) but I can’t imagine how someone does this with out that help. This really needs to be a priority for management because in all honesty it was rediculous.

  2. Gina Daly

    I really liked the way the different subject units were easy to follow and that each section had a test to check your understanding of the content you were after studying. I wouldn’t change anything.

  3. Hetal Mistry

    get through the course at my own pace.

  4. Amanda Fowler

    Easy and can do it when I wanted Hannah is a fantastic tutor and very supportive

  5. Marie Shepherd

    They offered the course I was looking for and were very helpful when I had questions about the course and enrolling. I would have loved to have known my end result/grade. The certificate I received just said "passed" and I had put so much into my work and got mainly pass with distinctions and 100% grades in my tests. I would have loved my certificate to have reflected that. I really enjoyed the course. I learnt a lot. A lot of the information I needed to research for myself rather than it being included on the course notes, but I enjoyed it very much.

    Can stay at home, work alittle and look after new puppy. I get a lot of migranes so studying at home was eaiser. In my own time.
    Extremely thankful for this. I am going to make my own file of medical terminology even though I have my old nursing dictionary to follow, but I find now that it would be extremely useful to have a list of prefixes, suffixes and root words to refer too, which is provided somewhat thru all units. But I found I had to keep refreshing my brain as to what, especially when inventing or making up new words…that is where I knew some but felt I needed to know the makeup of the word and meaning…just to implant that in my failing brain.
    It was good to do extra research to complete assignments but would be useful to have some suggested websites for some units maybe.
    Definitely racked my brain since I have not done nursing for 20 years.
    I found the terminology much more intensive that what I remember in Nursing training so that was excellent I found.

    I chose to study with the career academy because The ability to complete the whole course online in my time frame. it was different to what I expected from a medical terminology course. I enjoyed the course but it was not what I anticipated. Hannah however was super helpful and very quick in her response times which was greatly appreciated.

  8. Andrea Dunbar

    I was looking at medical receptionist training on the internet and the career academy came up, otherwise I would never have known this training institute existed.

  9. Claire Elaine Muir

    they offered the course that l was wanting to take. l have thoroughly enjoyed completing the two courses (medical reception and medical terminology). It has given me confidence to enroll and be accepted in full time study until the end of the year. Thank you to my course assessor (Hannah Guy) for the ever encouraging comments returned with each assessment and for the prompt reply to any help requests that l posted.

  10. Yvonne Richardson

    i am at an crossroads of needing to stay working but unable to carry on the physical nature of the job i am currently in so looking at gaining new skills , but still work in the health field no but would be glad to have had more information about navigating the moodle platform you use. the tutors were very encouraging and very prompt with return of assignments. With the medical terminology course , i think to have more about operation terminology and letters written by doctors so if you are writing the letters that gives you more understanding of what you are writing.
    The reception course would be good to have more indepth knowledge of medtech and computer systems as i am an older person trying to catch up with technology.

  25. Marie Shepherd

    I haven’t spoken with my tutor yet, I send a message yesterday and am just waiting for a reply. I am having some difficulty navigating around the course on Moodle, but I am sure I will get used to it soon.

  26. Anita Moore

    I was just looking at different options and a tutor actually called me and discussed the outline of the course and made it easy for me to move forward with studying. Thank you Angela McGaw. You helped me so much.

  27. Jacqueline Lelievre

    Online study is my only option with my schedule. I didn’t actually have any interaction with the tutors in relation to this course, but I enjoyed the course and have learned a lot.

  28. Averill Kidd-Robb

    I choose to Study with The Career Academy as it fitted well into my usual routine.

    I am a full time receptionist Monday to Friday so being able to study in my own time and doing work when I can at home worked really well.

    I will definitely recommend this course to others.

    I thought all the questions were explained well.

    I thought that not all the questions were necessary for most reception roles but I was happy to learn something new for the possible future roles that may be out there and also just for my knowledge.

    But overall, the questions were great and if something wasn’t clear then you always had assistance near you.

  29. Sonia Sharma

    Keep following the standard you’re using currently, you guys are already doing the best. The tutors and all staff are so helpful to achieve good results. I found that this is the only college online to provide short term courses to follow your career ahead. I found it the best. I would like to say thanks to my all tutors and staff members.

  30. Samina Mohammed

    From my point of view the course that I choose was very a clear, understandable and interesting course that I liked and was able to complete in my own time. I don’t think there is anything that could be improved. I heard good things about career academy from my friends so I decided to enroll myself and study about medical reception which was my future goal. And now I have completed this course with the help of the tutor. Career Academy is really a great company and the tutors are very helpful. I will recommend people to use Career Academy to further their career. All I want to say that I have fulfill my goal and now I am awaiting to receive certificate for medical reception so that I could apply jobs according to this field. Thank you so very much to the Career Academy and the tutors for all your support. You have made me achieve my goal. Thank you once again.

  31. Ashley Jade Field

    The only thing I struggled with at times were trying to understand what some of the assessment questions needed me to do, however, I would email my tutor and she was always great at explaining them and giving me the info i needed to be able to complete my assessment. I fell extremely sick at the beginning of this year where I was mostly bedridden and had to leave my job, so I wanted to make the most of having to have the time off so career academy was amazing for me as I have been able to study from home while recovering from my illness and when I do go back to work I will now be able to further my career.

  32. Jericha Gerrard

    It catered to my needs and allowed me to work full time and pay my fees interest free 🙂

  33. Charlene Tamatoa

    I was able to do the course in my own time and help was available when needed.
    It fit into my schedule of work and kids..
    This is a really good way to acheive qualifications and to further our knowledge.

  34. Lena O’Brien

    I am thoroughly enjoying the course, I love learning new skills and challenges it keeps my confidence in communication and writing.
    I cannot find anything to be improved so far, I always get a fast response from tutors when I sent any requests. Tutors are very helpful and explained things clear and concise.

    Thank you

  35. Alex Sherie

  38. Diniita Jacobsen

  39. Lily Mcdonald

    I liked both the medical reception and terminology courses to upskill myself and pore-ready myself for university studies. Great to learn new things I didn’t know.

  40. Helen Campbell

    I googled online learning specifically for the medical reception course and Careers Academy came up. Nothing comes to mind that could be improved on their service.

  41. Sobin Mourn

    I work everyday and have 3 kids to take care off. I wanted to improve my studies in this medical field, and you allowed me to study and do my assignments in my own time. That is what I really love the most. Is I can qualification while working and having a family. I enjoyed this course and now I’m ready for my 2nd course medical reception. Some topics weren’t explained clearly but from the help of the tutors they explained it clearer than the task given.
