I have never studied online before and I love the course and the layout and the Interaction with my lecturer is great. The industry interviews give a really good first-hand perspective and the event administration subjects are also very useful.

I would [definitely] recommend this training to others. Activities in each unit put my knowledge to the test and kept me engaged. It was great to read other student’s comments and hear their own experiences as we went along.
