  1. Richard David

    Really enjoying the course.

  2. Shirl Samu

    Enjoyable content, just waiting on the hard copy of the notes to proceed. Easy to follow and straightforward.

  3. Vera-Anne Pola’apau

    I like how the course is online and is flexible to my needs. Easy to use system, the tutor responds promptly. If I did another course I would get the hard copy of the course notes, as it is easier to go back over the notes

  4. Rose Lee

    I am learning so much as a student and it makes a difference to be able to study at any time of the day and from anywhere. My tutor is always there to help me when I need her, but I love that I can connect with other students in my class via the virtual campus too.

  5. Jenny Connelly

    Ever since I planned my own weddings, I have dreamed of making Wedding Planning a career. But until I started this course, I had no idea how much more I needed to learn to work as a professional. The course is preparing me for working with clients and I am excited about completing and being able to plan my first wedding for a couple.

ILEA Board Feedback

“This is an exhausted approach to learning about event management and creation, and will be an invaluable to those that attend the course, particularly in the private event sector.

The events industry is a highly dynamic one, and at ILEA we advocate continual learning by eventprofs to ensure they stay relevant and at the cutting edge of marketing and sales communication. This course is one that can be used both for initial insight, but also as a revision course for seasoned professionals.”
