  • Planning is the key to an organisation achieving its goals. However, translating high-level plans into realistic and workable budgets can be a challenge.

    "Being that OCA is a completely online campus, I looked for every reason not to do my course through them. I looked at every AAA professional provider and the people teaching the courses. In the end, of all the providers, I went with the one I least expected to. The service is beyond what any big brand campus gives you, and everything is set out so well. Huge ups to OCA for completely turning me around! I would recommend studying through OCA to anyone who wants a real advantage. Thank you!" - Jaqui
