I completed the advanced MYOB course. It was very expensive for the level of support and notably, the lack of practical exercises. My biggest disappointment is that it cost $25 for a professional certificate. Yes you can print one out, (it looks cheap) however considering the cost of the course, a professional certificate should be posted out to you. I have never had to pay for quality printed certificate, diploma or degree at TAFE or University.
The learning materials were perfectly made.
I have just accomplished my certification Accounts Administration and Payroll.
I am absolutely satisfied with the course material. This gave me enough confidence to jump into the labor market and find an accountant job. My course contained 14 modules which were 95% accountant materials. I would say that the Payroll path was only slightly touched for 1 module. But I do not mind I am interested in accounting instead of payroll.
Tutors are ok, ok. I feel they do not really care about to write any improving answer, I always got the same reply for the graded assessments. Sometimes the assessments tasks were too easy, nothing special questions, and the same feeling about the quizzes also.
All in all, I would say to recommend the Career Academy. Price and value ratio is fine and extremely convenient to study from home.

I Loved it!
I have just finished all the assignments to the Certificate in Accounting course. I loved the entire process and could not wait to start a new module every week. I found the course very easy to follow. I am excited to start the advanced certificate in Accounting. I know i'm going to love it!
Awful - not enough support
Never finished the course because the content didnt make any sense half the time, I was constantly having to google the answer or find information elsewhere because it was so poorly written, Takes at least 24h to get any kind of assistance and most of the time the response given wasn't even helpful and then it would take another 24h to get another response. How on earth am I meant to complete a course that doesn't make sense with no assistance. Extremly frustrated, and a huge waste of my money, absolutely wouldn't recommend
Looking forward to enrollment in new course
I was very happy with my experience with C.A. I had to extend course due to illness and tutors supportive during this time. Was disappointed to find out almost at completion that the course was no longer an Advanced Diploma...I realise other institutions also had to make changes in accreditation but would fee for course be the same
MYOB course is amazing
I have just finished my test in MYOB and loved the course, modules easy to navigate through and the units were fantastic. The quizzes and exams were at the level I would expect thankyou.
Loved my AAT Bookkeeping Course so far
I am really enjoying my course so far. The modules are very understandable and the tutors are amazing. Eddie Callahan thank you so much for all the motivation you have given me so far. I look forward to many more modules to come.
My Experience with the MYOB AccountRight Bookkeeping Course
I enjoyed the course units and the assigned reading material for the MYOB AccountRight course but it must only have been an introduction as only basic tutoring was provided when there were obviously many more features involved in the trial software. (This was not clarified anywhere in the course, nor does the certificate on completion mention the level of competency.) I felt that I would have benefited greatly from more practical exercises to complete in the trial software we were given to use. There wasn't even a practical test at the end to see if we could reconcile the books successfully.
Course syllabus was excellent
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and the feedback from the tutor was great! The course I did was an Advanced Certificate in MYOB and the quizzes and exams were just right for that level of training Thanks Career Academy I will be back for more!
Payment Plan - Pathetic Communication
I am very upset with my experience. I have paid out a large amount of money and as I have alot going on in my life ATM. 3 children (2 under 2) as well as suffering severe PND. I was only interested in the introductory psychology & counselling course but was convinced via a telephone call that I would be better off going for the 'diploma' in psychology & counselling as the introductory course wasn't a proper qualification. Now I have emailed quite a few times to try sort something out whether it be a deferral or really whatever will make it even a small bit worth it for me considering the amount of money I have now paid out to this course that I had completed only 1 quiz and logged into about 3 times. Apparently I could only have the course deferred for a couple of months? Some point during this time I get an email to notify me that the course name has now changed and is no longer qualified as a diploma. Which really was half the reason for taking it on in the first place! The content was definitely challenging which means you need some quiet uninterupted time with which to study and complete assessments, which most anyone with 2 babies could agree is impossible. I was encouraged to bite off more than I could chew and understand there would be some penalty but now it's just ridiculous with being charged $30 a month and then most often than not an extra $10 fee when the funds arent there, Ive just noticed in the middle of last year they started charging $60 a month (!!wth) and the last few months have been both a $30 and $20 charge in the same month - this is actually ridiculous especially since I have emailed them countless times about it at first I was getting response in regards to deferral. Now I'm getting NOTHING. No emails - even after continuously forwarding the email and asking for a response. Also just to clarify , I actually hadn't noticed any direct debits from them over the past maybe few months - I saw a $20 debit today just by itself (which wasn't the agreed upon amount anyway.) - which made me check my account but this time I filtered all career academy debits to find that I actually have been paying even more than was Originally agreed upon. I haven't yet counted the total as I feel ripped off and stupid. You would think that there would be shown some compassion in such a situation but I guess not. Which Is why I decided to review them. All I can say is , SCAM.
This is amazing
Very satisfied, I would love to do another course with career academy. As I learnt and finished my certificates in a short amount of time.
Apparently have debit in another country
Unbelievable I got excepted into my courses had everything set up and told it was all ready to go to start. However after ringing to ask for my login details I was told I have been taken to debit collects in nz from apparently been enrolled in a course last year. However I’ve never been enrolled with this or any online courses and I have not lived in nz for 12yrs and I’ve never had any emails, calls etc from any debit collects and I have a clear credit history. So now my enrollment was canceled without any notice. I’m very annoyed because I’ve never done a course or enrolled anything specialty in New Zealand and I would like proof it’s actually me cause I know for a fact I never enrolled in anything but the three courses I just enrolled in this week!
The course is quite hard to interpret as it is all online and no teaching as such. So is hard to grip hold of
The content of the course was really good and feedback from the tutors/assessors was really helpful. One thing I wasn't aware of prior to enrolling was that I would be required to download two software programs (free trial). Would 10/10 recommend anyone doing online courses. Definitely worth it!!! Can't hurt to give it a go people :)
(My course was the 'Advanced MYOB' Certification.)
Great way to learn!
I enjoyed my courses. They were easily set up and tasks were esily understand. I loved that you had write a lot about your own words, using your own experience and a same time it was challenging and interesting.
All included information and material was important and useful.
It is great way to fit studies with your busy life and same time feel the rewarding and ask help if needed.
Only thing that I also found and that is mentioned above, it took couple of days to get the grades or response when needed.
Over all 5+
Maybe not for me.
I found the business admin course rewarding but challenging at times.
The asseser was always positive with feed back.
However they were also extremly slow in getting back to you when you ask for help.
As this was online and we all have busy lives trying to fit study in, I found it frustrating that it could be a week in between by the time help was sent days later, to when i could find time again to sit at the computer.
I tried to ring but just got an answering machine that said they would ring back but never did.
Sometimes their solution was for me to look it up on You tube.
Once I completed the course I was disappointed that we had to pay extra if we wanted to receive a nice hard copy of our certificate.This should be included.
I am sorry I didnt do my research a little better as I am unsure exactley what my course actually is equivelant to in Australia.
I just wanted a cert3 however the work load suggested cert 4 but my certificate just says cert in buisness administration.
Think I probably wasted my time and money .
I wouldnt recommend a NZ company if you need qualifications for Australia.
Not for everyone!
I love my course and would recommend it to people who want to make a difference to others, if they have some medical knowledge and academic writing experience.
If you need help you need to allow up to a week to get a reply, which I find quite disappointing at times. I have to agree with some students that the course content can be quite confronting for some beginners - I would suggest adding recommendations on some subject knowledge before doing the course if necessary for some.
Just under a month into my course and I'm really enjoying it.
Easy online access, comprehensive course material, prompt response from 'help team' not to mention such constructive and encouraging feedback on assessments.
I'm able to maintain my busy family and work life while studying. A bit of a mishap regarding payment plan setup, otherwise great experience so far and I'm looking forward to wonderful end results!
Excited about the course
As I have only just started the course I am happy with the support and friendly staff who are making the course enjoyable. I can't wait to start my next submission. The course is at my level and I know my limits. It's very achievable
Glad I chose to do this
I'm enjoying it but struggling between personal life and studying isn't achievable then not being able to move onto next section is very challenging.
