“This course was very useful and helpful, even after planning my wedding I thought it would come in handy for future events. I look forward to using my knowledge gained to help others with their up coming special events!”

Alison Bishop Wilson

“Great videos and very informative notes. Easy to understand and fun to learn!”

Brooke Vulinovic

Carrol Cummins

“Great course, could not find anything as useful and structured as this events management course”

David Bruce Ika

“A very good overview of Event Management. I have been involved in Planning, Organising, leading and controlling events for years but have not got any formal training or qualifications. This course confirmed for me what I already knew and also filled in some blanks- thank you very much.”

Debra Parker

“Videos were easy to follow, the questions are obvious if you have common sense. The business plan is a great template. It would a good practice if there was a module where we had to write our own business plan/manage an 'event' to make sure the theory and practical both lined up. Very stoked to be an event manager!”

Kijiana Pene

“This course was  great a lot easier than lot of other online courses, having a teacher there explaining what your learning is a lot easier than just reading and then doing a test, it has more of an impact on the way I studied and kept my attention.”

Lisa Hau

“This course was Brilliant I am a security Guard and this will help in my career”

Samantha Scanes-Keith

“I enjoyed the course. The lecturer was very easy to follow and he was very knowledgeable on the subject. The course notes provided were very helpful and time-saving. The course has inspired me to pursue employment in this field. I now feel confident with the terminology and all of the important aspects of planning an event to do just that. Throughout the lectures I thought of examples from events that I had been to such as weddings and a recent Art Awards function and I now feel that I myself could plan such events- and perhaps even better than they did!”

Sussan Everett

“GOOD.”

Nathan John Garrington

Excellent course. I learned a lot and feel that I am now ready to start my own business as an event planner. The modules are just the right length (not too long!) and the material is something that you will have with you forever. Thank you so much!

Sarah Barnes

I enjoyed the course very much. It helped me to think on a whole new realm of event planning. I saw how I could have had greater success in events I had in the past. So many areas were covered that I hadn't even thought about.

Joe Turner

I enjoyed the course. It was very timely since I am currently planning my daughter's wedding. I was able to put some of this knowledge to practical use almost immediately

Lee Peak

Just a quick note to say thank you for the well explained and structured course.

Easy to follow videos. Very basic for someone who has been involved in event management but I would be great for beginners.
Megan O'Connell

I've really enjoyed this course- I love the fact that it is video content- as if I read too much text on the computer it hurts my eyes- its also a lot easier to comprehend when you can see examples etc.

“Great videos and very informative notes. Easy to understand and fun to learn!”

Brooke Vulinovic

“I found the lectures absolutely useful and learnt quite a lot. I am currently in the event coordinating position but benefited hugely from this course. Thank you.”

Carrol Cummins

“Great course, could not find anything as useful and structured as this events management course”

David Bruce Ika

“A very good overview of Event Management. I have been involved in Planning, Organising, leading and controlling events for years but have not got any formal training or qualifications. This course confirmed for me what I already knew and also filled in some blanks- thank you very much.”

Debra Parker

“Videos were easy to follow, the questions are obvious if you have common sense. The business plan is a great template. It would a good practice if there was a module where we had to write our own business plan/manage an 'event' to make sure the theory and practical both lined up. Very stoked to be an event manager!”

Kijiana Pene

“This course was  great a lot easier than lot of other online courses, having a teacher there explaining what your learning is a lot easier than just reading and then doing a test, it has more of an impact on the way I studied and kept my attention.”

Lisa Hau

“This course was Brilliant I am a security Guard and this will help in my career”

Samantha Scanes-Keith

“I enjoyed the course. The lecturer was very easy to follow and he was very knowledgeable on the subject. The course notes provided were very helpful and time-saving. The course has inspired me to pursue employment in this field. I now feel confident with the terminology and all of the important aspects of planning an event to do just that. Throughout the lectures I thought of examples from events that I had been to such as weddings and a recent Art Awards function and I now feel that I myself could plan such events- and perhaps even better than they did!”

Sussan Everett

“GOOD.”

Nathan John Garrington

Excellent course. I learned a lot and feel that I am now ready to start my own business as an event planner. The modules are just the right length (not too long!) and the material is something that you will have with you forever. Thank you so much!

Sarah Barnes

I enjoyed the course very much. It helped me to think on a whole new realm of event planning. I saw how I could have had greater success in events I had in the past. So many areas were covered that I hadn't even thought about.

Joe Turner

I enjoyed the course. It was very timely since I am currently planning my daughter's wedding. I was able to put some of this knowledge to practical use almost immediately

Lee Peak

Just a quick note to say thank you for the well explained and structured course.
Zaneta Vrankova

Thank you was very interesting, as I've spent several years working in the hospitality industry doing function work.
Jennifer Rakich

Excellent, informative course! Very recommended
Jacinta Henderson

Easy to follow videos. Very basic for someone who has been involved in event management but I would be great for beginners.
Megan O'Connell

I've really enjoyed this course- I love the fact that it is video content- as if I read too much text on the computer it hurts my eyes- its also a lot easier to comprehend when you can see examples etc.
Kim Rawson
