Hi Gemma, YAY!! I did it....thank you so much I could not have done it without you and your amazing support. If I knew where you were I would send you a big bunch of flowers! I gained 3 hours employment per week at my daughters school on a new program with aboriginal kids so I am so excited and so grateful to online courses Australia and to you. I plan on doing the certificate 4 just as soon as I can....unforunately being a single mum with only 3 hours work a week there is no way I can afford it at this stage but just as soon as I can I will be enrolling with you guys and I hope again I get you as my mentor/support person.....I can not wait. Thank you so so so much again Sam

Just a short note to say how great On Line Courses Australia are. Doing the course on line gives me the freedom to study around life's commitments. As a busy working, single mother, I don't have the time to attend a TAFE to do any course that would help my future employment prospects. I was a little hesitant at first wondering what the support would be like and doing the course without that face to face interaction. But the offerings of support via emails and texts have consistently been there for me to use but I've found the course easy to follow so far and haven't needed to ask for any help. All in all it has been great going and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending On Line Courses Australia to anyone wanting to study on line. Regards Liz Caruana

I am a stay at home mum of 2 children 5 & 3 yrs and decided I wanted a change in career paths, so I decided to study at home and online. I found with personal dedication and online assistance when ever I needed it - that my course was educational, insightful, challenging but most of all enjoyable to complete. I now look forward to putting my new qualifications to work. Thank you Onlinecoursesaustralia

Thank you OCA for providing such an easy to follow study program and engaging course material. I was a bit nervous about studying again after being at home for 6 years raising my children. When I finally decided to just do it I was pleasantly surprised. The support was fantastic and the format of the course was great. It kept me interested at all times and looking forward to the next moment I had to sit down and do some of the course. I am now looking forward to getting out there so that I can put my new found knowledge to the test in the real world. Thanks again!

Although I am currently employed as a School Support Officer, I benefited greatly from this Certificate III course. I enjoyed each assessment and expanded on my current knowledge. Gemma (my assessor) was fantastic and was quick to mark my assessments. I thoroughly recommend any SSO to undertake this course. Well worth the money. Thank you Gemma and the Online Courses Australia team.

Learnt a lot and whenever I needed help, it was always there for me. Never had any dramas and everyone is very friendly. Give it a go, it's worth it! :)

I am currently studying cert 3 Education Support. I thought it was going to be hard doing a course online but its not at all. Having 3 kids its great to have the flexibility to study when I want. I am enjoying the course and can't wait to start a new career.

I have just completed the Certificate III in Education Support and couldn't be happier. It was a very thorough course with a large amount of additional resources and website links for those who feel they require more information. The fact the course was online was a small concern for me at first. I was worried about how available help was going to be if I required it. My concerns were immediately put to rest - the Online Courses Australia website was very easy to navigate, and help always available. Thank you.

I have just completed the Cert. III in Edu & am now able to apply for Teachers Aide's positions. This was the most stress-free course I've ever done! And all from the privacy of my own home & computer, I could submit assignments whilst still in my pj's! And the technical support was available so readily, I'd recommend any of the courses available from this company! Kathryn Schubert

I was surprised how fast I finished this course, I'm not the fastest learner but with the amount of help you get, at anytime might I add, it help me focus better and get through it quicker. The scenarios also really help us they gave me a better understanding of what could really happen in the class or playground when i was filling out my assessment especially when having to use my own words.
