I am currently pursuing a Double Diploma Course in Leadership Management and Practice Management, and I must say, it has been an incredible experience so far.At first, I was a bit anxious, as I work full-time, and the initial adjustment to the course structure was challenging. However, I soon found a rhythm, thanks to the excellent support and resources provided by the program.The consistent and constructive feedback I receive throughout the course gives me motivation, pushing me to excel in each unit I undertake. It's incredibly rewarding to see my progress, especially considering that I've managed to complete two units in just one month. This achievement has given me confidence in my abilities, proving that with effective time management and dedication, I can successfully balance work, life, and education.One of the strategies that has worked exceptionally well for me is scheduling in simulations before tackling the assessments. Setting these deadlines for myself has helped me stay on track and maintain a steady pace of learning. This approach makes the entire learning process smoother.I must say, the coaches are not only experts in their fields but also incredibly friendly and approachable. It's reassuring to know that there's a supportive team behind me every step of the way.

Like many it was time to retrain, up skill and gain some much needed security. CAL was great, self guided as I still needed to work part time and the coaches were always available. They had a great offer of a Double Diploma in Building Construction and Project Management , the work load was manageable and it has enabled me to get a job with a top building company in Perth. Thanks CAL.

I completed a Double Diploma of Practice Management and Business (Operations) with CAL, and they were a fantastic RTO to study with. They were upfront about the requirements of the course, and student support was always prompt in responding whenever I needed assistance, with a number of different support options available. I would especially like to thank Marissa who was always so patient and helpful through-out the whole process!The style and structure of the learning materials were extremely engaging and easy to follow as well, which made it really easy to find information when needed. Especially given the competitive pricing of their courses and the level of support provided, I would happily recommend CAL to anyone looking for an online study option!

I strongly endorse The College for Adult Learning and its exceptional quality of education. Having successfully completed a Diploma of HR Management and the Diploma of Leadership and Management, I am compelled to express my unwavering appreciation for the invaluable experience I gained.Throughout my journey, the coaching provided was truly exceptional. I must highlight that Marissa, in particular, has been an incredible asset. Over the span of the past few years, her patience, support and insightful guidance have played a significant role in equipping me with the knowledge and skills necessary for my certifications. Marissa's profound expertise in the field is unmistakable and I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have collaborated with her.I extend my deepest gratitude for not only enabling but also empowering me to pave the way for my future career endeavours. If you are considering furthering your education, I wholeheartedly recommend Marissa and the College for Adult Learning.

My experience with CAL was pleasant enough but my star rating is olnly due to one of the assessors - Marissa! She is worth double whatever it is they are paying her, she actually went out of her way to assist me with some administration errors 🙏 also a very thorough and pleasant assessor. I don't think I'm the only one who thinks she's amazing considering she's usually booked out for a month in advance!!!

Marissa is a star! Marissa is the reason for this 5 star review. She has been the most supportive trainer that a student can ask for. She always answered any questions easily and I never felt like I couldn't ask a question to her. She is the reason why I made it through this course, the assessments are enormous (probably much bigger than they need to be) and her encouragement, industry knowledge and advice helped me to move through them when I felt that they were just completely unachievable. Thank you Marissa for everything, I honestly could not have done this without you!

I have found them all to be the most supportive, respectful and knowledgeable college they give 110%, and cannot do enough to support their students to achieve their goals.I have found this in all areas of the CAL college from Admin, Finacial and Cal Coaching Teachers. I must also highlight Marissa my CAL coach she is fantastic, extremely knowledgeable and so supportive; she always leaves students better then she found them, builds self-esteem, and confidence just through coaching calls and simulations, an absolutes pleasure to speak too.If you wish to study to enhance and advance your skills enroll with CAL, I am very glad I did, that's for sure!!!!

I recently completed a double diploma in Project Management and Leadership and Management with the College for Adult Learning. With the help of their very professional, friendly and helpful coaches I was able to complete the diploma’s early whilst working full-time as a tradesperson. The course content is also well balanced between theory and practical. The coaches were always there to help and were a pleasure to deal with throughout the process. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to further their careers or build on their qualifications as I did.

I personally made the decision to start a double diploma in business and leadership & management, to up-skill my knowledge and to have the educational certificate to my name. When starting my double diploma it was very daunting and it was very tough personally. The admin staff are exceptionally good at running you through All of the criteria. And making sure you know what to do, what is required and how to get the best out of your study. I took everything on board that they explained to me and it has led me to proceed through all the starting difficulties that I faced and to get six units completed before I know it, and it has been one of the best experiences I could've ever asked for. The coaches are there to help you. Anytime that you go to them with a question about the course you will get an answer and they will help you. The help from the coaches is exceptional!! I believe that once you get the hang of it, you are going to exceed through the whole entire course and the more you put into it the more you're probably going to get out of it. It's not all hard and it's not all easy but it is definitely worth doing it.All of the staff are exceptional, all of the teachers are there to help you and every time that I have contacted the college or a coach for support, they have all made me feel so genuinely important and so valued and it feels like we have a connection and that they really understand what I'm asking for and what I need, without even seeing them one on one in a classroom.I highly recommend studying at the college. It is so adaptable and it is so easy to fit in with my full time employment and I hadn’t studied for eight years and I felt like I was completely too old to get back into it but this was definitely a really good decision.So, Back yourself, and enroll into the course!

College for adult learning has been a fantastic experience for me. Started off with a huge hesitation around further study as I am still currently working full time. The team at CAL assured me i would be supported the whole way. I have just completed a double diploma in project and construction management. A reasonable time frame for this was 2.5 years. I found that both the coaches and admin team were fantastic to deal with, always quick to sort out any problems and efficiently answered any questions I was faced with. Persistence is the key with any of CAL courses. I would certainly recommend this training organisation for further education.

I started my studies during Covid because I had lost my job and wanted to learn new skills and work towards achieving a goal while I was at home figuring out what to do next. Doing my double diploma was more work than I expected (there are a lot of assessment calls). However, I found that I looked forward to the assessment calls because the assessors were so nice and friendly! A special thank you to Roma and Marissa for their support and guidance throughout my studies! Also, thank you to the online support representatives who always responded promptly to all of my questions. I had a great experience studying with CAL and I would recommend CAL to everyone!

When I embarked on my diploma journey, I had no idea whether I would ultimately forge a career as a practice manager in the dental industry. With approximately eight years of experience in this field, I remained uncertain about taking the leap into a managerial role. However, after conducting thorough research, I stumbled upon the College of Adult Learning (CAL), which appeared to be the perfect fit for my aspirations.From the very beginning, CAL impressed me with its well-structured study program and the approachability of its teachers. Despite being a mere four months into the course, I have already begun receiving enticing job offers, leaving me immensely content with my decision to enroll. One aspect that particularly stood out about CAL was its flexible payment plans. The accountant I consulted with was incredibly helpful, outlining the options available to me. She recommended paying 50% of the fees upfront, allowing me to save a substantial sum of nearly $700 in account fees.I would like to extend my gratitude to Assessor/Teacher Roma Jaitley, who has been instrumental in my journey right from the start. Roma has not only provided me with a solid foundation in the basics but has also guided me on how to enhance my skills. Her expertise in the industry is evident, and her teaching methods are exceptional. Additionally, CAL ensures that each unit has multiple assessors who can be easily reached via phone calls or Zoom meetings, adding to the convenience and accessibility of the course.One of the significant advantages of CAL's program is its online format, which enables me to maintain full-time employment while pursuing my studies. This flexibility has been invaluable in allowing me to strike a balance between work and education. Overall, my experience with CAL has been incredibly positive, and I eagerly anticipate what the future holds for me in the dental industry.

The college for Adults Learning has really helped me with my full-time schedule with work and being a new mum, I love the fact that it's self-dependent learning and is flexible. I would highly recommend it for those who want to challenge themself while juggling everyday work/life balance. It's great and the coach (especially Coach Kerri) has been so supportive, and I honestly don't think I would have passed all my units without her hard work and dedication in explaining the units to me. She hard work and effort need recognition or an award because she's absolutely an amazing coach.

I have just submitted my last unit for my Diploma of Human Resources Management. Although some of the learner assessment packs need a bit of work, overall I had a great experience. I could not have done it without the support of Kerri. She was an amazing coach, so supportive and really takes the time to explain things and make sure you genuinely understand not just to tick a box. This meant I was actually learning and being challenged along the way. Being able to book in the coaching calls with a resonable amount of avalibility is what sets CAL apart from the other online course providers.

I started with CAL last year and it has been such an amazing experience. I started as a nervous student, not sure really what I had gotten myself into!I definitely could not have gotten this far without the help and support of the coaches, but one coach in particular has made such a huge impact on my studying and that wonderful coach is Roma. Roma has always been my best advocate. She mentors me in so many ways.Roma encourages me to stay on track and progress with my units, when sometimes all I want to do is give up.Roma is kind, empathetic, a very good listener and overall just a beautiful human!Roma has a wealth of knowledge and I know I can always count on Roma to support and mentor me when I'm stuck. I don't just consider Roma to be my coach, I also consider her to be a lifelong friend. When I have hit a roadblock with a unit, I can always count on Roma to guide me through and coach me in ways of encouraging me to re-think and reconsider the situation of the case study and this always opens up a new way of thinking and allows me to feel more confident within myself to get me back on track and back into my studying.Roma, I honestly cannot thank you enough. You have become such an inspiration to me and make me feel so confident within myself. I couldn't have made it as far as I have without you.Thank you xx

I was initially hesitant when enrolling for CAL for Double Diploma of Practice Management & Leadership. I have no regrets meeting my coach Roma. I have never been keen with online study, as personally I prefer face-to-face learning but with a full-time job, I have found studying with CAL to be more practical with my busy schedule. I would highly recommend Roma to any new students. She is a delight to coach with, she has an aura that's approachable and she is very patient. She is a very encouraging mentor & very professional on giving advice.

Great experience with CAL! Materials easy to understand and use, workload and expectations appropriate for our busy working lives, and most importantly, great professional staff always available only a call away, when support required or just for an encouraging chat. The assessor/coach I dealt almost exclusively with, Marissa, has been absolutely fantastic throughout, with advice, coaching, encouragement and support, which I greatly appreciated, especially around the halfway mark, when completing this 2-year course seemed so far away at times! With perseverance and great support, I completed the course and am already thinking about the next one!

This rating is purely based on my experience with Marissa. I was very grateful to have her as my coach as she really understood my needs as an adult learner. I found a lot of the content difficult to decipher but she kept me calm and took a realistic approach to the assessments, much more than what anyone else at the college did. I appreciated her quick responses to all of my submissions and her encouragement when I just wanted to give up.

Recently I completed a double diploma of business, management, and leadership at CAL. My teacher, Marissa Litonjua was a great support throughout my studies. Her simulation calls are amicable and focus on the authentic corporate experience that is associated with the double diploma. Our discussions made it better to understand the topics, and her encouragement as a coach helped me tremendously! Thank you, Sara

I have just completed the Double Diploma of Business and Leadership Management. The course was closely aligned with the skills I was developing in my role at my workplace. I was priviledged to have such an excellent, professional, supportive tutor in Marissa Litonjua. She was always encouraging, very helpful, approachable and accommodating. I will miss the weather updates from sunny Queensland. Thanks for being a vital part of my career aspirations. Jen

I have just completed my double diploma in HR Management and Business Admin. This has been one of the best online platforms that I have used for my learning experiences. The content Is excellent and very thorough, there are various methods you can use, depending on your learning style. There is a lot of work, but is totally rewarding as you work through it. My biggest take home is if you have any issues or get stuck is to always communicate with the lecturers or even the office staff, the whole team is super supportive. I struggled a couple of times with work time pressures where it got too much, the CAL team where very supportive and assisted me through it. Kerry and Marissa where both great facilitators when working though my major assignments, and thanks them both for making it an easy process. At the end of the day CAL want you to pass and will work with you through the process. Thanks to the CAL team!!! 😎😎

I have just completed my double diploma in project management and leadership management. It has a lot of information and I learned so much. The price you pay in money and mentality was worth having these two diplomas now and I can’t thank CAL enough. I have always had good experiences with the coach’s, timing and content. I would recommend studying with CAL to anyone. Just chip away at it and keep motivated.

I found my whole experience with CAL to be a positive one. It's been many years since I have been in a "school" environment, so it took some discipline to get through this course. I set myself a 2 hour minimum study period each day which took a fair bit of effort and focus, as I work full-time plus have a family to look after. It was hard initially, but after a couple of weeks, I found my rhythm and it was smooth sailing after that. I also didn't put any pressure on myself-if I had a bad day at work-I didn't touch any study as I found no joy when I hit the books in that frame of mind, and that made it hard work. So, I found giving study a miss for one or two days actually beneficial, and when I did go back, I was more involved and interested in my course than before. I have nothing but praise for the support I received from the whole team at CAL - from the admin staff to the tutors. They responded quickly and the coaching calls helped me to get to the next questions/units quickly. A big thank you to each of you for the part you played in helping me achieve a long-held goal. I highly recommend CAL to anybody who is looking to take on some study. The content is laid out well and easily followed. The exercises for each topic and the assessments went a long way in ensuring that the information absorbed was drilled home.

CAL provided a great opportunity to learn at your own pace. I would highly recommend their Diploma of Project Management if you are new to the field and looking for an opportunity to learn as you do. The Diploma greatly supported the project I was working on at the time, running me through all the steps as I implemented them.

I have just completed a double diploma with CAL. I found all of the staff there very supportive indeed and did not experience any rudeness whatsoever. Unforeseen circumstances meant that i had to request an extension , CAL were very professional in their response and understanding. Studying online is not for everyone and can be difficult if you are returning back to study after a long period. However CAL are there to support you it just takes a little bit of time to get a response from your coach, but once you are speaking with them they clarify and help you with your course work. I would recommend sourcing a study group either students from CAL or somewhere else where you can bounce ideas off each other regarding the course. This will help you as you work through the self directed learning and complete your tasks and activities in the course.Thanks to all the team at CAL who helped me through my course and got me to the end.

I recently completed the Double Diploma in Project Management | Leadership and Management. From my initial enquiry and dealings with Tristan who was super helpful, informative and supportive, through to starting the course with the help of Student engagement coach David who helped me every step of the way and checked in to see how I was getting on, The College for Adult Learning was a fantastic learning experience which exceeded my expectations. With each Unit completed the next would be unlocked straight away and marked within the times stated (generally in half the time). The feedback from the coaches was the best of all always super encouraging and supportive but also included much needed advice in areas that may require extra study or focus. Anything I was unsure of I simply booked a time that suited me for a coach to call me to discuss anything I was unsure about. I highly rate and recommend CAL and look forward to studying with them again in the near future! Thanks so much guys !!
